We had a wonderful dinner while visiting DC for a special occasion and loved everything. Carlos was an exceptionally helpful and knowledgable waiter and the food and drinks we chose based on his recommendations were amazing. We now are thinking of planning another trip just to ensure a return visit to this special place! Thank you, I Ricchi, for your 30+ years of outstanding dining experiences!

Excellent restaurant. Great ambiance, service, and food. I had the buffalo baratta, caprese salad, New York strip, and rosemary potatoes. The only bad part of the meal was the buffalo baratta, which I don’t recommend. The caprese was great, New York strip fantastic, and the rosemary potatoes other worldly.

The most disrespectful and rude service I have ever experienced in my life. We had a Groupon and closely followed each and every stipulation it carried but when we sat down our server informed us the restaurant would not honor our Groupon unless we came back and had a reservation after 9pm. Nowhere in writing did it say this anywhere. We politely explained and begged and pleaded and eventually after 25mins they let us stay with the Groupon. The server demanded we order what we wanted for dessert even before the bread basket came. And even after that, it wasn't until after our appetizers came that our wine eventually showed up, with no explanation or apology for the delay from the server.

Our re-fills didn’t arrive until after the meal was finished. Food was good, but not up to those prices given other available options. Wasn’t hard to get a reservation though.

iRicchi is a perfect venue for a business meeting. The service was impeccable and decor is inviting. The menu has something for everyone and the food is simply fabulous and authentic! I am looking forward to my next dining experience at iRicchi this weekend to partake in leisurely dinner paired with extraordinary wines!

What a wonderful traditional Italian trattoria! It was the end of restaurant week so we had a great selection of fare to choose from at very reasonable prices. The service was impeccable and we were treated to a visit to our table from the owner who was gracious and delightful.

Waiter was “shadowed” throughout the meal, unobtrusively. This gave us double coverage with serving and clearing. Attentive and knowledge, but not rushing us, our waiter was a good model to follow. Food excellent, as always. An excellent choice in the neighborhood.

Seeing Chris in the dining room, meeting and greeting happy diners is like a cherry atop a sundae. The authentic Tuscan and Regional Italian delights are more than enough to make a trip there joyous and special (and mandatory for any trip to DC). But to see her and hear her talk about it is a treat.

I ordered a filet med rare but it came out well done and much too soon. Was it cooked before I ordered it? The pasta was supposed to be made fresh but tasted stale and had some watery drool instead of a sauce and very little seasoning. The waiter was very pleasant but was moving us along too fast. I wanted to like this place, it was a lovely Italian restaurant but the food was not good. And the bill was outrageously overpriced, $300 for 2 people, 1 bottle of wine. If it had been really good I wouldn’t have batted an eye but we left there very regretful, sorry to say.

Went for lunch with a friend. The whole experience was amazing. I had the pasta special of the day, fettuccine in a light cream sauce with peas and mushrooms. Delicious! My friend ordered the North Carolina trout and she totally enjoyed it. To start we shared the beet salad with goat cheese and ferro. Unique and quite tasty. For dessert we shred the cheesecake which was yummy. We also had a few glasses of the house Cabernet which were suitable. The star though was our server and rest of the wait staff. Very friendly, personable and professional. They offer coat check and are decorated beautifully for Christmas. Can’t wait to go back !

I had talked up I Ricci to my wife for a couple of years and we finally were both able to have dinner there this pst weekend. Unfortunately we left thinking the experience was a bit “meh”. Service was ok, although the server was not super friendly...a little too professional and lacking a lot of personality. Bread was excellent but we had to ask for the accompanying oil and balsamic. Tortelloni was excellent. Lamb chops had about three bites of meat on each and were not filling at all (had my wife not split her veal with me I would have left hungry). Veal chop didn’t have much flavor and we had to request balsamic to make it taste right. Wine was good. We didn’t try dessert.

I was really excited to take my wife to this restaurant but unfortunately left not so excited.
