We had a very poor experience. The food was only so-so and very expensive. The service was rushed and inattentive. When I complained to the manager as we left , she was rude. Washington has many good restaurants. I Ricchi is not one of them.
Classic Tuscan at it's best. Everything was amazing!
This service and experience is more about up-selling from the moment we walked in the door and did not feel genuine. We were rushed through the entire dinner and the staff interrupted our conversations frequently to bus the table and move our dinner along. Very disappointed we chose this restaurant, based on the reviews we read, over all the other excellent places in DC.
The restaurant is always consistently very good. Fresh pasta, fresh sauces and really great pairing of wines are some of many features of this jewel in the DC crown. Highly recommended and wonderful staff!
By far, our favorite DC restaurant. We go so often, we don't need menus, and are greeted warmly by all the staff, management and ownership. It's nice to have a place to take out of town guests to, where you don't have to worry about a thing. The food is always exceptional, flavorful, attractively presented and authentic for Tuscan Cuisine. They have a great wine list and the cocktails from the bar are top shelf. If I haven't mentioned it in previous reviews, the bread basket is amazing. All of the pasta is home made and wonderful, and the meats, seafood and poultry all of the utmost quality. Deserts are delicious and different from what you find at most Italian restaurants, but even those that are the norm, such as Tiramisu and Cannoli, are exceptional. It's a must try for anyone who hasn't yet been.
An enjoyable night and wonderful service except that they threw away my take-home which was not cool. The food was good but not excellent.
Delicious pasta, appetizers, bread. Personal professional service.
Great food. The food took forever to come out, but I think that was due to it being Valentines day.
ıt was the worst place ever ı go ın Washıngton DC
Service was very slow
food was really bad I did not eat anything
First they bring me check for $245.98 after I complain they reduce it to $129.87
Don't go ever to this place
Very disapointing diner. Ok it was Valentine’s Day which is probably not the best time to eat out since Resteraunt’s are busy but this was a bust. Mushroom soup had to be returned as it was basically thin vegetable consomee and not a good one, followed by a lobster rissoto with specs of lobster which was ok but lacking the principal ingredient followed by a lamb chop and rib dinner which had to be returned as way over cooked. The replacement was great but 2 out of 4 courses no good at first is a record. My date had the pasta vongole which consisted of a handful of clams and the rest canned. A very poor showing for this once great Resteraunt.
I was a little hesitant in making my reservation due to some of the unfavorable reviews. There were also a large number of more recent favorable reviews. Those are what sold me on making a reservation here for Valentine's Day. It was a great move! The atmosphere, service, appetizers, main course, and dessert were all wonderful and made for an outstanding evening. The price was a little high but certainly acceptable for a classy DC location. We can not wait to come back.
Went on Vday and service was great. We Arrived early before the crowds came in but service quality did not change one people arrived. Our waitress helped us lots with the menu and staff seemed genuine.
This remains one of our very favorite traditional restaurants in DC. The lunches are especially good value and the Italian food is really exceptional. We have always had fine service--the staff are always close by, but never intrusive.
This week we shared a wonderful mixed salad (certainly large enough for two), each had an entree (my strozzapreti was really delightful) and then shared the walnut cheesecake, which is the best dessert in DC, in our opinion.
Great service, delicious food. We were there on Valentine’s Day for lunch. It’s an old fashioned place that still feels fresh.
