Love to go here. The only issue is when I have the server - Said. He is just not on top of things. I have to ask for refills on water, etc. I would have to ask other servers for assistant. This is the third time I had him. Now that I know his name, I would ask for someone else.

Great date night with my wife. It was the perfect evening in DC. Little sightseeing then dinner. This place reminds me of a Tuscan bistro. Beautifully decorated inside. A hidden gem. Great food service and ambience. Swordfish and shrimp were excellent along with a caprese salad and fresh mushrooms. The desert was even better cheese cake and cannolis. Delicious. Highly recommended. We will be back. Well done.

This was our first visit to I Ricchi. The menu had many choices. The service was excellent and our server guided us to some of the most popular dishes and his favorites. I had the scallop gnocchi appetizer which was delicious and the rigatoni strascicate for the main. Loved it!
My husband had the calamari which was very lightly breaded and the filet with polenta and green beans as his main. Dessert was tiramisu and the walnut crusted cheesecake. Both desserts were worth the extra calories. We really enjoyed our meal and will return to try some of the other menu choices.

The food is always delicious and the service is great. However, we always go using a lunch Groupon, which is very reasonable. Without the Groupon it is more than we would spend for lunch.

i Ricci is by far our favorite DC Dining spot. I can't find fault with anything there, from the food, to the staff, to the ambiance and everything else one looks for in a restaurant. It feels like home each and every time we eat there, and it is a sure stop when entertaining friends and family who visit from time to time. We will continue to visit, as it is one of DC's finest establishments.

Great food, great service. It was late and things were filling up, I was able to find a table here at 7:30 for one. When I got there I decided just to eat in the bar area. Great choice, the Bartender Eric was very helpful in picking an awesome dinner out many great looking suggestions. Tried to tell the Manager how well he did with the service, food, and company but she was a little busy. Thanks again Eric!

Went with a groupon and immediately told what was excluded on the menu unless we wanted to pay more. Then when the bill arrives we have the bill without the groupon subtracted as well as the ‘true bill’ with groupon included. I guess this was to ensure we tip accordingly for the higher amount. Suggest if they are going to use groupon service neither exclude parts of the menu or suggest we tip on the true cost of the dinner.

Terrible terrible terrible. Took our waiter 15-20 min to get our drink orders. Did not interact with us whatsoever, had no desire to check on our table or ask about our meal, but he did with his other guests. Felt very judged here to say the least and will definitely not be returning. Waiter would reach across table to fill up our glasses during mid bite. Like come on now. So many disappointing things to say. Food was ok, that’s it. Tiny portions, definitely not worth it. Do yourselves a favor and don’t go here especially if you’re like us and you’re under 50 years old. Thanks for ruining what was mine and my brothers first weekend together in over a year. No memories to be retained from this place.

My all time favorit and go to place for all occasions. No matter what the reason, a meal at i Ricci heightens the experience for all. You can't say anything about the food, service and ambiance that is less than stellar. A comfortable, casually elegant restaurant I am happy to call my home away from home. Kudos to all at i Ricci for being the best at what you do.

We have been in Italian restaurants all over the world. This restaurant is at the top of the list. We have never had calamari fritti as tender and good as here. I had crabcakes which were magnificent and my wife had tortelloni which was fantastic and for dessert their special cheesecake which was wonderful. Carlos, our server was one of the most knowledgeable and conscientious and helpful waiters we have ever encountered. Their wine list is wonderful and the best part was an entire bottle of Pinot Grigio was very affordable.. A great experience! We’ll go again

After recently moving to DC we wanted to try a new restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This place had good reviews but was not great. It was a pleasant evening, the mains were very nice but not worth the money. My husband had to ask twice for a beer and then said yes when offered some more bread specifically requesting some more focaccia. The bread was brought to the table but no focaccia so when we again asked for it the bread was taken away and nothing returned. The appetiser and deserts were ok. For the money, close to $200 for one appetiser, two mains and deserts, one beer and a bottle of wine, it was not a great evening, but was ok.

The restaurant continues its bait and switch games with Groupon. Many items have an $8 upcharge. Think twice before buying a their Groupon. Ate there 4/8/18. The food was excellent
