This Italian American mainstay—open since 1993 in the working class Oregon Hill neighborhood—is a Richmond classic. Known for family style penne all'amatriciana; garlicky salads; and bold, bright dishes, like roasted red peppers with anchovies and capers, the restaurant is boisterous and neighborhood-y, with low-slung banquettes and long, candlelit communal tables. Go early or late to avoid the infinite crowds.
