Lovely evening. Quiet, beautiful service. Food was delicious -- in fact, as delicious as I remember the same dishes the last time that I ate inside.

This is one of the most special wonderful places in DC. The food service and ambience are fantastic and the efforts that have been made to keep people Covid safe are extraordinary. Honestly I wish we could eat there every evening.

We experienced the Valentine’s Day menu. The four course meal was very balanced. Our waiter was very knowledgeable regarding recommendations and suggested a wonderful wine. We will revisit again.

I am not someone who leaves reviews but I feel compelled to make my first one now after dining here with my wife for our Valentine’s Day dinner. When we were seated we noted how much we liked the ambiance of the place. It was a visually romantic setting with soft music playing. We booked the four course Valentine’s Day special which ended up being a leap of faith because we were not able to see the special menu before hand. Each course of the menu was extremely delayed. We placed our full four course order within ten minutes of being seated but did not receive our food until the one hour and twenty minute mark. The couple at the table next to ours arrived 40 minutes before us and didn’t receive their food until after us. The food quality was maybe one step above airplane food. There was not a single item we received that we were actually happy with. We cannot believe that we paid over $300 for this horrible experience and we will never go back.

Today was a special day for my wife and I not only because of Valentine’s Day, but it is also our anniversary. Upon entering the restaurant, based on the open table account it mentioned valet parking. This was a plus to me because my wife is six months pregnant. I entered the restaurant to inquire, the “older hostess” mentioned there was no valet parking. It mentioned valet parking was located at restaurant in the description on the open table app, she told me I needed to find parking on the street. I asked if there were any garages open, she mentioned they were all closed.

Once seated at our table and placing our four meal dinner we received our first dish, which was very good! But following eating our first dish it took 45 minutes for us to get our second dish. During this time our waiter kept coming back to the table asking us if everything was ok, it was not ok. My wife finally asked about the whereabouts of our second dish, the waiter mentioned it was coming shortly. Meanwhile another couple behind us was receiving their meals in a more timely matter. After about another 10 minutes my wife asked to speak to the manager.

The manager came to the table and mentioned that the food was taking a lot longer based on pickup orders, but never took the time to apologize for the inconvenience, let alone offer us any accommodations for still not having our second dish on our table. I then took the time to ask her about the cost of the meal, as I paid for it in advance on open table. The price on the menu stated $99per person, I paid $125 per person, I couldn’t recall if gratuity was included. She then told me to check my receipt rather than tell me, she eventually told it was included. After about 5 minutes we received our second dish, following the second dish everything seemed to be rushed and unseasoned. So much so, My wife could not finish her main dish. All previous dinning at the restaurant had been great experiences, until today.
Truly not happy!

Chris and her team have done an amazing and effective job, managing to provide I Ricchi ‘s traditional high standards despite the constraints of the pandemic. Our group dined outside in a heated tent, with warmer seat cushions and blankets that it turned out we didn’t need. The rain only added to the ambiance - « glamping » at its very best. The food was as delicious as always and the staff could not be working harder to make your evening a delight. We were fans before - now we are devotees.

We are longtime fans of Christianne Ricchi and her Tuscan Italian restaurant I Ricchi. Wonderful professional and friendly service, outstandingly flavorful food choices, a great wine list and hand crafted cocktails and a very nice outdoor heated patio dining or nicely spaced indoor dining experience. Can’t go wrong at I Ricchi! You deserve a treat - Go!

Probably the most comfortable patio for dining in the Dupont area. A variety of well prepared menu items blended with warm, professional service make it a great choice for dinner. They do have heaters on their patio so even if the weather is a bit cool you will still be warm enough.

We had such a lovely time - four girls out for a night off from COVID. We were treated like family by our expert server, Carlos. A special treat was the long and lovely conversations we shared with owner Christianne, who stopped by our table a few times to chat. Socially distanced tables and health precautions.

Amazing and authentic Italian fare with pitch perfect service and kindness from the entire staff.

Check this place out!

Not the best Italian meal I've had. Appetizers were good but the entree choices were anemic. We ordered the Prime Rib special for $49 and it wasn't worth it. Small portion TOTALLY over seasoned. Someone needs to taste menu items once in awhile. Ordered dessert it was never served. Probably Covid rust but I wouldn't return.

I love iRicchi. Each time I go there, or pick up a great meal from their iRicchi Food Club, I feel like I am a family member welcomed to their generous table. Their food is amazing, fresh and delicious. And now with COVID, sitting on the patio underneath the heaters on a cool fall evening makes for a cozy and enjoyable experience.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary dinner and could not have asked for a more special evening. Our server, Noe, was FANTASTIC and so attentive to us. He did not rush us and our wine service was fantastic. The food - OUT OF THIS WORLD! We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers (scallops and the prosciutto plate) as well as our entrees (cod and tortelloni). The pasta is SO fresh and the portions are perfect. Christianne came and sat with us multiple times and made our evening so special. Please support this amazing restaurant!

Our first fine dining experience since March and we decided to go to our favorite restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. IRicchi is an outstanding experience. Safe distance tables rearranged and an outdoor patio is another option. We were the only couple choosing to eat indoors. The branzino was divine! Support iRicchi during this pandemic. Christianne Ricchi has made every effort to ensure your safety.

Overall, this was a great experience from start to finish. The rigatoni was wonderful. The chef later told us that what makes the tomato sauce so good is that it simmers for 12 hours. The prosciutto appetizer is another winner. In sum, it was a great night.

Thank heaven for the patio! In this social distanced world i Ricchi is a great, safe dining experience. Lovers of Tuscan cuisine should make it a point to dine here. The menu is somewhat limited due to capacity limits but every item we had was excellent. 3 of us shared appetizers of calamari fritti delicately battered and very tasty; and Sausage and beans. Our pasta course consisted of Rigatoni with meat sauce, perfectly al dente; and the Tortelloni with sage butter sauce.

For entrees, try the veal Milanese and the filet mignon with the most amazing truffled polenta.

The service is great and you can often find the owner/chef Christianne Ricchi going from table to table to see if you’re enjoying your meal.

i Ricchi is a DC institution that we all should assure survives the pandemic. Go. You won’t be disappointed.

They have cut back on the menu and many of our favorite things were not on the menu, I got the fried chick and the portion was huge, but the taste not as good as food usually is, but I also got cold tomato soup which was delicious.

Disappointed they wouldn't take my Groupon, but understandable.....the restaurant outside was pretty empty.

Had a great birthday dinner al fresco and was not disappointed with the consistently great food and service at I Ricchi. Very few patrons on a Wednesday night and I felt quite safe health-wise. Rigatoni delicious as were the appetizers. Felt like I was in Europe.
