Extremely fresh, light, fluffy, delicious donuts. Just your usual donuts here - glazed, chocolate frosted, eclairs, twists, cake donuts, etc. - so nothing fancy like Sugar Shack, but everything is done right and quality is outstanding, which is what really matters. I put them on par with Country Style Donuts and any bakery that does it the old-school, correct way. You will definitely find that quality here. Some of the best donuts in RVA and beyond.

We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Service by Shannon was great. We were both really hungry and ended up sharing the Greek Pikilia 1 platter that had a nice assortment of snacky and salad type food. We also got the Moussaka which was a tomato based version with not a lot of bechamel sauce. The eggplant was a little tough to eat. However the desserts of rice pudding and chocolate baklava were excellent. Would go again if we were near Atlee Road in Hanover County

I only give 5 stars if I am willing to travel more than 15 miles to eat somewhere. I do not give these out easily. That said, when you consider the environment, cost and quality of food, this is a 5 star restaurant in my opinion.
The place is every nicely decorated from the falling water when you enter to the color scheme of the restaurant. There is nothing tacky here. You actually think it’s a chain when you walk inside, but it is not.
The cost is what you would spend at any of the much lesser Chinese restaurants in the area. That is very important because the only Chinese restaurant in the Richmond area that is better costs about 50% more.
We had lettuce wraps for an appetizer, and they were delicious. The filling was good enough to have over rice as a main dish.
I had orange chicken that was sweet and spicy. I loved tasting it that way. My wife had a grilled chicken salad that she enjoyed very much.
She had a drink, I had water and i had a main and she had a main salad and our bill was 35-ish before tip. This is a heck of a deal.

Williams Bakery (the Mechanicsville Pike location) is a REAL bakery, a throw back to the 40's and 50's type of "family owned" businesses that had people working all night to produce authentic bakery products the way they were produced BEFORE the "industrialization" of pastry items. If you enjoy quality pastry, do not miss this shop. It was thrilling to see all of the traditional bake goods that were in their old fashioned display case. Long johns, cream puffs, donuts, cream horns, are just a small part of their fare. I purchased one or two of almost everything, sampled quite a lot, then gave the rest away to my friends and relatives. My brother for one loved the gift. Williams Bakery also make traditional pies and cakes... and they seem to be noted for their Wedding Cakes. If you like baked goods... do not miss this little shop. If you are an older person, as I am, the flavors are as you remember them from years gone by, but, if you are a younger person and have never visited a REAL bakery... YOU are in for a treat!!! Buy and try as many items as you can, the experience is worth it.

Delicious and fast this local Italian place gets pizza and subs right. Ingredients are fresh and in good proportions. Pizza has a nice crust and a tasty sauce. The salads are always fresh and the house Italian dressing is perfect. They are big supporters of local schools too. You can't go wrong here for lunch or dinner

We visited Giambanco's because our swim team was having a fundraiser there. It was our first trip to Giambanco's. We ordered Calzones, Ravioli, Tortellini, spaghetti and lobster ravioli. The portions were a small for the price. My daughter didn't like her tortellini because she didn't like the sauce. She is picky though. Everybody else enjoyed their meals. We especially liked the homemade bread. We will come back just for that. Our waitress was nice and very attentive.

We visited one evening after a school event! Restaurant was busy, wait staff was helpful, but food was below quality I was expecting for the prices you pay. Food was overpriced for quality and serving sizes. We ordered a dinner salad, hamburger, and a kids meal. None of the two hot meals were hot when we got them and the salad was extremely small! Surprised and disappointed in the quality of food.
