Diner Reviews
  • "We ordered the special- beef skewers. The meat was tender and cooked to our liking. The mashed potatoes were cool and the green beans hard so we were disappointed with our sides. The bar needs help. Our friends drinks lacked Roses Lime Juice ( they do not have any) and generally were not well made. The bartender was very nice, however and she came out to our table to explain the issues our friends had with their drinks."

  • "My wife and I went for our anniversary. We were only a couple minutes late for our reservation, but they gave away our table, despite there appearing to be a few empty tables free anyway. We were seated right away despite the mixup. Their menu was great, especially since my wife is gluten intolerant and we didn't have to ask for a special menu for her. The gluten free white pizza we ordered as an appetizer came quickly and was really good. The entrees, however, took a long time to come out. When they arrived, they were hot, so I don't think it was because they sat around. Everything was really good (well, the polenta cake was a bit bland and spongy, but not inedibly). Aside from the wait for the entrees, the service was excellent."

  • "One of the best wood burning pizza. Their appetizers and salads are great. The entrees were a let down after the great appetizers/ Salads and pizza. The Soft shell crab was great, but the risotta did not have much flavor."

  • "Headed back for an anniversary celebration. Service was great, salads were back up to par, pizza was great, and their specialty chocolate pizza was the best we have had in recent visits."

  • "We all enjoyed our dinners - crab cakes, chicken saltimbocca & veal risotto. 3 of us had delicious onion soup & one, the specialty biscuits - all were great. No room for dessert. Pleasant surroundings & good service. Went after a matinee at Olney. Would definitely recommend."

  • "The food was excellent and the service very good. Loved that the food was locally sourced whenever possible, and that it wasn't "portion packed" and pre-cooked. My guest was from Europe, and before ordering, asked if this was US-style or normal portions, and I was glad to be able to say that the portions were going to be perfect and not oversized, cheap quality food."

  • "Decided to take family (Wife and 2 adult children) out for Father's day. Don't usually like outside dining due to heat in the area, but this day was fabulous with ideal temp and humidity. We sat at a nice table and could chat without shouting and were not disturbed by other tables. I had a great Stout (22 oz), son tried Mohito that was made well. We had Spinach and Artichoke appetizer (we get it every time and it's great) then shared two of their signature wood/brick oven pizzas, booth very good. Very good and friendly service, very attentive and we never had to wonder where they were hiding. Clearly our favorite place to eat in Olney."

  • "Not your chicken nuggets kind of restaurant. They use only quality locally grown food and the meal was superb! Not big meat eaters, we couldn't resist the filet mignon with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. I couldn't tell you what the sauce was because I was exhausted by the end of the evening. The restaurant is located in an historical house in Olney. But the meal melted in my mouth, as it did my daughters who eats less red meat than myself! But the best part of the meal was their chocolate pizza... (they are also known for their excellent wood burning pizza stove) but this I can only say it out of this world. Fresh fruit cut on top of a crust covered in white and dark chocolate with a hint of raspberry! Amazing!"

  • "We had a great time and the food was really good. The restaurant acknowledge our 41st anniversary by bringing out 2 mugs with chocolates in them afterwards. However, what somewhat spoiled an otherwise very good experience was that flowers I ordered connected to this reservation on Open Table from Flowerpetal.com were not placed on the table as a surprise for my wife as I had planned. That was very frustrating because the maître de told me that they had received no flowers (reservation was at 6:30 and she said she had been there since 4:00. I later found out from the florist that the flowers had been signed for at 3:00 PM. Clearly a lack of communication in the restaurant spoiled at least a portion of the event."

  • "Went to Ricciuti's with a group of close friends to celebrate a newly earned PhD. Wanted someplace where we could relax and have delicious food in a friendly atmosphere - and in a closeby neighborhood. All of these requirements were met - and we had a great time. Food was delicious - including the grilled swordfish and the calamari. We enjoyed other dishes as well, but these stick out in my mind. Would visit again, when we want to be relaxed and casual and enjoy good food. Room was quiet and a bit dark for my taste - but outdoor dining is available as well when we want lots of sunshine."

I am a picky eater but can always depend on getting an excellent meal when I dine at Ricciuti's. The staff is friendly and efficient without hovering or making me feel rushed. Dining there is always a comfortable, relaxing experience. "

  • "This little place is amazing. All the food is top notch. Their simple menu is diverse enough to keep it interesting from one visit to the next. Knowing that their menu is all local foods prepared beautifully to please diverse groups makes this place quite an experience. Before finding Ricciuti's I never thought that simple, local ingredients could make that much of a difference in restaurant food. Now I am a die hard fan with a quick easy answer to the question..."Whats your favorite place to eat?" "

  • "Just went to Ricciuti's for our anniversary and it was fantastic. When we were first seated, a family with loud children was seated behind us, and after asking the hostess if we could move, they accommodated us and moved us upstairs very promptly. It took a moment for our server to get to us, but after she did, she was very attentive. Their wood-fired oven pizza was the best pizza we've ever had (Matchbox and Fireworks have nothing over this place). The crust was just ever so slightly charred on the edges and the toppings complemented each other so deliciously, we both had a look-across-the-table-with-eyebrows-raised moment after the first bite. The organic wine was excellent. Overall, a great dining experience, would dine again!"

  • "My last review on Ricciuti's, while not terribly negative, concerned mainly a particular evening's special dish of Rockfish. Neither my wife nor I enjoyed it at all, probably Rockfish purists, but chef's do their best to freshen the menu over time and often take chances ... and you can't please everyone. Glad to say the wonderful dining experience we usually have here returned on our last visit, an early meal for us with a 5:30 booking. My wife had the Filet Mignon, which she thoroughly enjoyed and I revisited an old friend, the Penne Bolognese. We both enjoyed the light crowd from the early hour and our server, Matthew, could not have been better, even though starting a second shift. Ricciuti's remains our "go to" restaurant at any time."

  • "I live in the area & had 3 out of town guests that wanted Italian food. I chose Ricciuti's because I have been there many times & have always enjoyed the luncheons & dinners. My group enjoyed the friendly service, good food & the room décor. It was a win/win of an evening!"

  • "Visited Ricciuti's with a group. The food was great! Delicious selections and options for vegans. Everyone at the table couldn't stop commenting on how great their selections were, We ended up sharing! The service was also outstanding from the time we arrived till the time we left. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and visit more often."

  • "Ricciuti's is a great place to eat. What else is there to say? Though not regulars, we have dined there often enough to know what to expect: friendly, attentive staff; food that's locally sourced; innovative specials; and a comfortable setting for dining with friends or family. Patio dining is an option."

  • "We asked to be seated outside and were. Then we decided it was too chilly, after all. We were given a table inside as if we had asked for that. No fuss, no muss. The inside table was upstairs in a cozy room that, though filled with happy diners, was quiet and wonderful for conversation. Our waiter was prompt and helpful. Each dish we three ordered was beautifully presented and quite delicious. Each of us was happy with our selection. We used to get pizza from Ricciuti's when they were a strip center inhabitant in Laytonsville. Our grandsons remember fondly the pizza they used to get there. It is a pleasure to see that they have kept their wonderful pizzas and have also become a great local sourced elegant restaurant as well."

  • "We have eaten here a handful of times and it is always delicious. I was disappointed in the service on this trip. While it didn't ruin our time, our waitress was awful. We sat for 15 minutes before she ever came to our table, several times we asked for things that we were never brought (bread, drink refills) and she never even checked on us once she had someone else bring out our food- we actually were waiting for something but ended up eating. She pretty much checked out once she took our order, even though we saw her several times at other tables. Like I said, it didn't ruin it for our guests we were bringing here, but it left a lot to be desired."
