I have lived in the Mechanicsville area for around five years now and never knew about this little gem tucked away across from Lee Davis High School. My hair dresser recommend this place for some great Italian. Me and my friend went last Friday night and had one of the best experience in a restaurant in a long time. We were greeted at our table by Jon who turned out to be our server, who was excellent by the way. We started of with some calamari to start and we could tell that it had just been breaded, not that pre-breaded stuff like other restaurants. I had the the Chicken Picatta for dinner and my friend had the Penne Chicken ala Gina. I choose a salad with mine, which was the freshest I had ever seen. and my friend choose the homemade Italian Wedding Soup. We were gonna go for a cannoli after dinner but their bread did us in. I don't know any one would not like this place but it is our new Friday night spot. If you choose to take my recommendation and go ask for Jon...It's like family taking care of you. I never had to ask for anything.
By far the best Italian Food you can get for the money in Richmond! This is a great atmosphere with wonderful servers and homemade family recipes. Myself and our family has been eating at the IK (Italian Kitchen) for over 20 years. We are loyal patrons and will be for years to come. Our children love it and so do we! You would be doing yourself a disservice to not at least give this family owned restaurant a try! If you are looking for recommendations the following are some of our favorites: Fried Zuccini, Stuffed Mushrooms, Spaghetti Ala Mike, Lasagne, and any of the seafood items. Great food, prompt and friendly service are consistent at this establishment. Hope this review helps!
