Getting water without ice took an enormous amount of time. I was about to ask our server where was the glass of water (first glass had ice and my boss requested it without ice - tap water) and it finally arrived. I think my glass and my sister’s were filled at least once or more before the iceless glass of water came. And, the bread did not come out until about a minute before the meal was served.
My sister’s chicken dish looked dry (poor cutlet looked like it was hacked to as thin as a sheet of paper)and the few roasted vegetables made the dish look paltry. She said it was dry and the 4 pieces of vegetables wasn’t enjoyable. My boss seemed to enjoy her scallop salad, and my risotto special was great. We had cappuccinos, cheesecake, and cannolis. All fantastic. The food was delivered in a prompt manner even though it seemed busy.
I think the waiter was fine, cordial and prompt. It was the person who brings the water (or doesn’t ) and bread, that was slow. Restaurant noise was minimal and it was clean.
I have eaten several times here over the years and this is the first time this was experienced. One of our servers was not doing a good job, and this rating is partially based on this recent visit.

Frankly was disappointed. Nothing special. Our waitress was hard to understand and we had one miscommunication that resulted in a missed order. Probably won’t be back.

A very pleasant meal for two at I Ricchi. Our waiter was excellent, making suggestions without 'upsetting.' The food was very good. The wine by the glass was average, and not great value. The noise level was acceptable for carrying on dinner conversation. Overall, very good.

We were celebrating with family. Our waiter, Said was very personable. He even invited our 12 year old grandson for a tour of the kitchen. He also spoke with our 23 year old granddaughter about her school and the neighborhood she is new to. The food was very good and we will definitely return again.

Over-priced wine and mediocre Italian food given its reputation, far better with a smaller more family-feel place

In addition, left a reasonable tip and was then collared at the door and asked quite rudely if there had been anything wrong with our meal as I hadn’t left a tip at all. I replied I’d left $40, the lady in fairness apologised immediately who went to tell off the waiter. One can only presume he was feeling cheeky when he saw them tucked away under the receipt, but who knows, either way bad end to a mediocre evening.

This was a wonderful birthday lunch. The food was really good, the wine was great, the service was good (the waiter was new but did a really good job taking care of us), and I RIcchi is a rare place where you can actually have a conversation and not feel you are shouting. I'm sorry it has been so long since I ate there. I will make it a point to get back again soon.

Brought three good friends, we had excellent service, the atmosphere was warm, friendly and very comfortable. The food was excellent and our waiter (Syed) made helpful suggestions for wine, antipasto and our dinners. Veal chops were excellent. Linguini with clams excellent. We’ve lived in DC for 15 years and have eaten here several times a year. It never disappoints.

The food, ambiance and noise level were great. The fish entree I had was excellent. I would return again, but only if I could be sure of a different waiter.

The service was beyond overbearing. The waiter was interrupting our conversations every 5 minutes, and repeatedly took away food and beverage items before they were consumed. One time when I asked the waiter to stop removing the cocktail I had not finished, he lectured me about how it was his training to do so. The assistants were pacing around the table continually and refilling water after every other sip. Exhausting!

It was surprisingly loud. The food was good but had too much olive oil. The portions were large, too large. Our waiter said he was the sommelier but didn’t talk with us at all about what wines we might be interested in. We went because of Sietsma’s good review in the Post. I wouldn’t go back.

We were disappointed with our meal- the corvina was ok but just swimming in a pile of fava beans, and the trout was a bit greasy. Our waiter was attentive but pushing things on us that we either didn’t want or turned out to be a bad idea. Although the ambience was very nice, I’m not sure I could recommend this restaurant for the price.

Table wasn’t ready and we had to wait 20-25 minutes to get seated. Weren’t offered anything or even an apology for the wait. On the bright side, our waiter was excellent and service once we were seated was impeccable

Food was very good. Waitress (the Filipino lady) was excellent. However, I have three complaints: 1) They gave us a table right in the middle and behind the counter then gave another family a nicer and quieter table by the corner, even though we got there before they do. 2) I told them 12 hours before that we're celebrating a big birthday but the restaurant does not have a free birthday cake, unlike Milano or similar restaurants. 3) The valet guy was a jerk; he essentially forced us to give him at least $5 tip even though it should be elective.

Awful. So overhyped. We wanted good italian and instead they gave us undercooked pasta, medicore steak and bread with a tomato on it??? All the waiters were staring at us, they seated us at the door (on purpose, probably bc we weren’t as rich and overdressed as every other person there). waiter was rude, host would not stop staring, the drinks they gave us were so so strong and gross. If you want true Italian, do not go here. Wasted $200 for nothing. and im not exaggerating. im italian.

We had a groupon which was good for a two course lunch. There weren't many people in the restaurant so hard to judge the noise level. But the food was outstanding. We both had the mixed mushroom appetizer - very yummy. I had the vegetable risotto and my friend had a pasta dish (can't remember the name). Both were excellent. The service was very good too. We were really pleased.

Amazing food!!!Home made pasta is fantastic, any type.The lamb chops were superb and the deserts!...Wow! Walnut crusted cheesecake melts in your mouth, and the cannoli is made by hand, to perfection!! Wonderful service and the waiter was incredible! The only complain I have is the noise...VERY echo-noisy...Wish something would be done about that and then it would be 100% great restaurant .
