On 821 West Cary Street, nestled between homes, small businesses and the VCU campus you’ll find a hidden treasure of homemade pasta…DINAMO. dinamorichmond.com Dinamo is a tiny spot that seats maybe 30 people at once, so if you want to eat there, better make reservations complements of opentable.com.
Accompanied by a fellow foodie friend, I enjoyed the sleek but still charming atmoshphere and superb homemade pasta dishes.
The menu offered a bounty of fabulous choices, making choosing difficult.
I opted to begin my meal with the traditional Wedding Soup served with fresh baked bread…divine. My friend chose the tagliatelle with eggplant and I chose the calamari & shrimp with squid ink fettuccine. Both excellent choices. The generous portions provided enough for a second meal via our take home boxes.
Now, I must confess, that we both felt duty bound to indulge in at least two of Dinamo’s dessert options. I mean, in the interest of thorough investigation an all. Tiramisu and Limoncello Tart…worth every calorie.
