Really Nice waiters and the atmosphere is relaxed and Italian. But with that price level I expect more when it comes to food

It was a good place. The servers are very attentive, but it was also a Sunday evening with only a few tables to tend to. The food was good, the dessert even better. It has a nice, simple decor. I wouldn't go back because it isn't something I'd be drawn back to. However, it was nice and I had a Groupon to try it out with.

We have dined at iRicchi several times over the years and this time was a bit disappointing. Our waiter was a gem. Very accommodating. We were very uncomfortable at how close the tables were to each other and when…in spite of many open tables…they chose to seat a party next to us our waiter offered to move us which we accepted. The scallop appetizer was not cooked to what I had requested. The meatballs were enjoyed. My main course was the cod and there was so much butter that a huge pool of it formed.

This experience was not up to the standards that we had enjoyed in the past. During the pandemic we loved the prime rib Sundays. Always a hit.

I like this restaurant. It feels cozy, has good food, good service, and an easy vibe. The waitress was attentive and had great command of the menu, but kept asking if everything was fine while standing behind me (a little unnerving). The minestrone was outstanding. The branzino was good albeit with a bit too much olive oil. The pasta with meat sauce was delicious, but a lot for one person when having more than one course. The lemon sorbet was tasty, but perhaps not the best choice for a fall evening. Their "best selling" cheesecake was good, but a bit heavy and eats more like cake. The waitress recommended wines were fairly good pairings.

I Ricchi has been a fav of ours for 20+ years but we will not dine there again. The food is mediocre to terrible, vastly over priced and lacking the Northern Italian specialties that once defined its menu. Gone are the grilled veal and lamb chops and house made pastas that floated off one's plate. Once a worthy successor to such outstanding restaurants as Tiberio's and Cantina d'Italia, I Ricchi is now a sad memory of its former excellence. The wait staff are officious and shamelessly recommend veal Milanese that was dry and tasteless and very pricey. Save your appetites for other DC restaurants that care about quality ingredients and preparation.

The food was incredibly tasty and we appreciated our server made wine recommendations. My main concern with our experience was covid related: tables were quite close together and they crammed multiple parties very close to each other. The server didn’t consistently wear his mask. Otherwise, it was a wonderful dining experience.

The BEST Italian restaurant in all of DC! The owner is amazing and makes everyone feel very special. The Food is unreal and a close second is the wine selection. I Ricchi has been around for over 30 years and there is a reason why it has - Food, Service, and Authentic!

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!
