Wonderful menu with many choices for both traditional and more adventurous tastes. Pastas had perfect ‘bite:’ not too soft and not underdone. The semifreddo alone is worth a return visit.
Good bar and wine list. Our waiter and busser were very pleasant and true professionals.
The Food Club weekly curbside menus look great too.

Food was terrible when compared to the last time we went. Also, because using Groupon. They choose when they honor it. I used it on Valentine’s Day but was told I can’t use it on Mother’s Day.

Simply wonderful from the elegant and thoughtfully provisioned outdoor dining to the excellent service to the outstanding food. The celery salad was an outstanding first course. The fried chicken is reliably delicious. I personally loved the cod nestled into cannellini and zucchini. Plenty of wonderful wine choices either by the bottle or glass.

The veal was out of this world, as was the calamari. Desserts were tasty (the tiramisu was fantastic and the gelato was outstanding as well). DC restrictions are absurd and the traffic the evening we went was light. Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. My husband and I were very impressed by the service and friendliness of the restaurant. The food was superb! The best Italian food we have had in a long time. If you don't eat here you are missing out. My only disappointment is that the restaurant is located in Washington DC and not closer to our home!

With all the fine Italian restaurants opening up in DC in the past 10-20 years, it had been quite a while since I'd been to I Ricchi. It's definitely still a class act, and I'd gladly return soon for another splurge. Celery salad was a refreshing surprise, the tortelloni appropriately al dente, the vitello Milanese correct. The waiter redeemed his initial faux pas of telling us unasked his favorite dishes by (upon our request this time) recommending the perfect Sangiovese. I shall be even more eager to return when I Ricchi feels able to expand its menu offerings a little.

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!
