A wonderful evening! I had been here roughly 20 years earlier and i Ricchi has withstood the test of time! Great food & service - chatting with Chris was a bonus to our celebration. This place is a must if you are in DC. Molto Bene!

It has been several years since we have eaten at I Ricchi, and it is nothing like we remembered it. The menu is limited and, although the food was okay, it did not justify its price point. Our waiter was gruff and constantly upselling us. And, though sitting outside, we had to deal with the constant crashing of cleared plates and empty bottles in nearby bins. Not at all what one looks for when spending $125+ per person for a meal.

We went for our anniversary on a Wednesday. I had bought a Groupon a while ago for it. You can choose anything from their menu. Appetizers were the best. We had the scallops and the calamari. The rest of the food was meh. The place is nicely decorated and I think if it weren’t for the loud party next to us, it would’ve been a better more ‘romantic’ place. Service was great. Very attentive. Sadly we were seated at a 4 person table being only 2 but we had fun. Wine was delicious! Both the red and white that came with the deal. I think everyone should try going here once at least.

Only house wine (dry) available, they put some type of bitter greens on my main menu item, should have given a side of pasta or veggie, cheaper for the restaurant and would be more appealing to most customers. Deserts, cheese cake bland, and tiramisu was not homemade, store bought. I will never go back again.

i Ricchi is a classic Italian restaurant that has been one of the best restaurants in DC for 30 years. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Our server, Tim, did a great job with recommendations and being attentive. When we finished dinner, we asked if we could go outside on the patio, and were told to treat the restaurant as our home and go wherever we were comfortable. While having our after-dinner drink, the owner, Chris came out to say hello and ensure our dinner experience went well.
i Ricchi is a rare treat from chain restaurants, and one that all visitors to DC should put on their list of things they have to do. I know we will be back.

We celebrated our anniversary at I Ricchi. We ate on the patio outside, in the evening. The tables were nicely spaced, and we felt very comfortable.

The food was, as usual, wonderful. The cocktails (a Limoncello martini and a Vodka-Negroni) were especially good. I ordered a typical Tuscan pasta, Pici with tomato sauce and whipped ricotta, and my wife had Branzino. Both were beautifully done. Service was friendly and professional.

I Ricchi remains one of my favorite spots to celebrate a special occasion!

The server was curt and pushy. Cut us off while ordering, pushed on tipping, and set down items on the table sharply. Server was an older man with shaved head made the experience much worse.

Great Restaurant. As good as ever. The service was good and the food was fabulous. The only issue is that the dining room was very noisy.
