Great food, great service. It was late and things were filling up, I was able to find a table here at 7:30 for one. When I got there I decided just to eat in the bar area. Great choice, the Bartender Eric was very helpful in picking an awesome dinner out many great looking suggestions. Tried to tell the Manager how well he did with the service, food, and company but she was a little busy. Thanks again Eric!

Went with a groupon and immediately told what was excluded on the menu unless we wanted to pay more. Then when the bill arrives we have the bill without the groupon subtracted as well as the ‘true bill’ with groupon included. I guess this was to ensure we tip accordingly for the higher amount. Suggest if they are going to use groupon service neither exclude parts of the menu or suggest we tip on the true cost of the dinner.

Terrible terrible terrible. Took our waiter 15-20 min to get our drink orders. Did not interact with us whatsoever, had no desire to check on our table or ask about our meal, but he did with his other guests. Felt very judged here to say the least and will definitely not be returning. Waiter would reach across table to fill up our glasses during mid bite. Like come on now. So many disappointing things to say. Food was ok, that’s it. Tiny portions, definitely not worth it. Do yourselves a favor and don’t go here especially if you’re like us and you’re under 50 years old. Thanks for ruining what was mine and my brothers first weekend together in over a year. No memories to be retained from this place.

My all time favorit and go to place for all occasions. No matter what the reason, a meal at i Ricci heightens the experience for all. You can't say anything about the food, service and ambiance that is less than stellar. A comfortable, casually elegant restaurant I am happy to call my home away from home. Kudos to all at i Ricci for being the best at what you do.

We have been in Italian restaurants all over the world. This restaurant is at the top of the list. We have never had calamari fritti as tender and good as here. I had crabcakes which were magnificent and my wife had tortelloni which was fantastic and for dessert their special cheesecake which was wonderful. Carlos, our server was one of the most knowledgeable and conscientious and helpful waiters we have ever encountered. Their wine list is wonderful and the best part was an entire bottle of Pinot Grigio was very affordable.. A great experience! We’ll go again

After recently moving to DC we wanted to try a new restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This place had good reviews but was not great. It was a pleasant evening, the mains were very nice but not worth the money. My husband had to ask twice for a beer and then said yes when offered some more bread specifically requesting some more focaccia. The bread was brought to the table but no focaccia so when we again asked for it the bread was taken away and nothing returned. The appetiser and deserts were ok. For the money, close to $200 for one appetiser, two mains and deserts, one beer and a bottle of wine, it was not a great evening, but was ok.

The waiter was really tentative. We had deep fried calamari and meat balls for appetizers. Both are very delicious. The battery of calamari was light and fluffy. For entrees, we had filet mignon and trout. The filet was among the best I had, extremely tender, really high quality meat. The trout which is very good too. And the portions were generous. We had two deserts, cottage cheese cake which was as good as people said, and tiramisu, which was rather overpowered by cream like what you get in supermarkets.

I Ricci is, in my opinion, one of the best all around restaurants in Washington DC. Dining out is so much more than just the food. It is the presentation, service, ambiance and aura of the restaurant, all of which combine to deliver a memorable experience. I Ricci delivers on all components. As many times as I visit, I am still excited at the prospect of dining here. Not only is the food amazing, along with the service, but the staff, from Christianne Ricci, the owner, Spomenka and the management staff, Anastasia, my personal favorite, Eric at the bar and the Valet, Mark. All of the servers are exceptional, especially Carlos, our favorite server and another favorite.

I Ricci is so much more than just a restaurant, it is a culinary experience that all should take part in. Authentic Tuscan cuisine in a charming and realistic setting, reminiscent of a Tuscan villa. I will continue to go as often as I can, as I am never disappointed.

The salads were tasteless and the fish was overcooked to the point of being rubber. The rigatoni wasn't bad, but of the three of us no one enjoyed their meal.

Perfect location for a quiet business meeting. I arrived before my guest and they ensured they sat me in a quiet location near the front window so I could be sure to see him arrive.

Definitely a classy place with an air of quiet sophistication but not haughty.

I have had a great experience at IRicchi in the past-- was very much looking forward to another great meal. While the food was still very good, the service was AWFUL!! Confusion with the order; server rolled her eyes multiple times; charged for a drink we never received. Disappointing experience and will not return.

i Ricchi is our go to place when we come to DC. We actually ate there two nights in a row, and love to bring friends there. Everything was freshly prepared and the right temperature. The service at the bar and at tables was equally professional and courteous with great timing and élan. Love it, can you tell?

Took 5 colleagues for business dinner. Decent food but appallingly rude service. Condescending, brusque, high sell waiters who constantly interrupted conversation and hustled as hard as they could to suggest extra dishes. Ezra . After two courses and two bottles of wine, a team of service people suddenly appeared to aggressively clear all the plates - whether you were finished or not- and then stood by with the owner's approval staring at the table to indicate they were ready to go home. We hadn't ordered dessert and it wasn't even 9 PM.

Who needs this kind of poor treatment? Go to one of the many nice places with excellent Italian cuisine like Centrolina or Il Tiramisu.

After securing my reservation for five with a $250 deposit, I contacted the restaurant to inform them that we were traveling from out of town and would be a few minutes late due to traffic. They replied that they would not honor the reservation beyond 15 minutes. Despite arriving on time, it became clear that we would be rushed through our meal. We were asked to order almost immediately after receiving menus. Our appetizers and salad course were brought together to save time. I selected a bottle of Brunello and was brought a Barbaresco which the waiter indicated to me was the same wine. Other than the pasta, the food was ordinary to below average. And after my daughter pointed out that they seemed to be pushing the bottled water, I was charged $50 for five bottles. I will not be eating at i Ricchi again.

Fabulous food, friendly service, lovely atmosphere.
It is truly authentic Italian cooking with a flair, and just enough variety.
Easy to find vegetarian options. Kitchen is amenable to making requested adaptations.
The sides are as good as their appetizers. I always feel like I get good value.
It's one of DC's gems.
