We both tried fish dishes.... Should have stuck with pasta. They seat us and in a near empty restaurant seat another couple right next to us. Not very smart.

I have been going to the restaurant since before Christina took over. It is very high quality food and excellent recepies. The server was very good. It can be pricey, but you can occasionally find Groupon discounts. I will definitely be returning.

We've been coming to this restaurant for years and usually really enjoy the food and the great service. We went last night for New Years Eve, arriving at 9:00 and from the moment we sat down our waiter was hovering waiting for our order. We literally had not looked at the menu and he asked for our food choices. As the other waiters took down the New Years decorations around us as we ate, it became very clear their goal was for us to depart asap. After spending considerable money for the evening, it was an extremely disappointing outcome and very odd given our clear interest in staying and enjoying their menu and services.

Was visiting DC and looking for a high end restaurant near my hotel. Found a Groupon for I Ricchi, read past reviews and decided to give it a try. It did not disappoint, menu selection was just about the right size and portions were all reasonable. Food itself was delicious and the bottle of wine included with the Groupon was quite good. Service was top notch and while we didn't spend time at the bar, it looked like a cool spot to hang for a drink.

As always, I had the best time at one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. The food, the service, and the atmosphere were all perfect. Christianne was an amazing host. Great seeing LT. Gen. Brent Scowcroft there - an absolutely great American and Patriot. I Ricchi never disappoints!!!!!

It was a wonderful evening to celebrate the beginning of the Holidays. We had the Feast of the 7 Fishes. Outstanding! Every course was amazing! The price was reasonable as well. My waitress Jackie was so attentive and knowledgeable about best wines to accompany the meal. So sweet. The other young lady that assisted her was a doll as well, very professional. I have lunch there often but dinner has a nice vibe. If you don’t go, you will miss a great foodie experience.

Everything about this place is authentic, beautiful, and the atmosphere is so friendly. It's like you're coming home to your traditional Italian family.

The only note I'd have (which is an incredibly small detail), it felt a little bit like our server wanted to coach us on how to tip because we were African-American with a Groupon. But we're also both Drs. So, we could have went without the "lesson".

That aside, this is my favorite Italian food in the area.

I started with the Caprese while my wife had the Scallops. Caprese was good, but Scallops were better. We both had the Lamb Chops. They were excellent. For desert, I had the Tiramisu and wife had the Strawberry Meringue. Both were very good, but Tiramisu was better.

Four of us enjoyed dinner at i Ricchi the other night and it was fantastic! The ambiance and service were wonderful and the food was outstanding! I ordered the lobster risotto special (one of many specials that evening) and it was definitely one of the best meals I have ever had! My husband chose the minestrone soup to start which was fresh and delicious. Everyone loved their meals and we sampled each other's food because it was all so good! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We've been to I ricchi a few times in the recent past because we liked the food and service but will never return after this experience. The hostess was rude, and arrogant. And when I told the waiter there was no olive tapende on my trout as stated in menu and reason I ordered that dish, instead of taking it back he argued with me that it was there, I just didnt see it! The octopus salad I ordered for $19 was the biggest rip off. Octopus is not cavier. It is not an expensive fish. so for $19 and served on a tiny oval plate, buried in drippy lettuce, a few tomato slices and cucumbers there were a few, very few tiny pieces of octopus. a disgrace. Don't order that dish. The wine by the glass is very limited, with only overpriced, bad wine offered. There are many better Italian restaurants in Washington.

Another successful outing to I Ricci. The staff is well above par for the Washington restaurant scene, and the food is beyond compare. We never have anything but praise for the place. The food service and ambiance are wonderful and they always manage to meet any special requests we might have. They are extremely good about getting us out on time if we have to make a play or concert somewhere. I will continue to go to I Ricci as often as possible, because it is simply the best!
