Riccardo was born in Florence, Italy and grew up in Boston, MA. Marybeth, a Sioux Falls native, ventured to the east coast as a nanny and then nursing school in Somerville, MA. The two met, fell in love, and became engaged on Martha’s Vineyard island. Moving back to Sioux Falls in 1999 and working at several area restaurants, they opened R Wine Bar in 2018. As owners of R Wine Bar, Riccardo and Marybeth are passionate about one thing: people. They believe that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. With a curated wine list, local craft beer on tap, and beautifully executed menu, Riccardo and Marybeth are thrilled to bring R Wine Bar & Kitchen to the East Bank of Downtown Sioux Falls along with their General Manager, Jane Allen, Executive Chef, Andrew Morgan, and Director of Catering, Ben Swenson.

    Had dinner reservations, only stayed for a drink because the live one-person band was so loud we couldn't have a conversation. Seriously obnoxiously loud, made for a unpleasant experience.

    Love the ambiance and food and wine. My pasta limone wasn’t very lemony and the sauce was too thick. The others dishes were great. Love the wine selection. We will definitely come back again and again.

    First off, I want to thank the staff for dealing with multiple reservation changes. They were very accommodating! The atmosphere was fun. There were two performers. They sounded great. Bonus to a good meal and great conversation. I was pretty disappointed with the table. They sat 4 people at a small 4 top, that should have been used for a 2 person party. (34in x 34in, maybe?). When the meals arrived, it was crowded. We each had waters and another beverage. On top of the size of the table, it was wobbly. The drinks almost splashed out throughout different points of the meal. This was very annoying. We would have normally wedged something under the leg, but it was the center post that was the problem. We could have asked for another table, but we didn’t want to bug the staff. The chairs weren’t comfortable/inviting at all. But, we still enjoyed our visit. I expected better, considering the price of the visit. Meals: Fig and balsamic pork chop x’s 3 - excellent! For the size and cut, i felt it was a little pricy, but I was happy I ordered it. The pasta (orzo?) was my favorite part of the meal. Don’t let that distract from how good the pork chop tasted. The pasta was just that good. Shrimp Cocktail: This was good. $15 for 5 pieces of shrimp (Large-Jumbo sized?) was a little much, but it is worth trying. Little on the tough side, but not a deal breaker. The cocktail sauce was good. This is something I normally don’t enjoy. Bread and Pesto - This was great. Who doesn’t like bread. $3 makes this s great value. The pesto was definitely on point. Great pesto/bread ratio. How about some honey butter and bread? Smoked butter? Perhaps a combo platter? Drinks: 1919 Rootbeer (on tap) - $5 overpriced, but always great. Two wine drinkers enjoyed their wine. The server was quick with suggesting a wine for their likes. Price was what you would expect. Staff: Very friendly and inviting. The server was very good at reading the table. Would recommend!

    We had a nice time. I would definitely go earlier next time, as the noise level was just crazy. I couldn't even hear the gal who was playing that night. We had the filet and it was divine. My table mates thought their pasta's were just so-so. I will definitely go again!

    R Wine came highly recommended by a friend. Unfortunately we did not have the same experience, maybe it was an off night. Service and ambiance was pretty good. Food was a slight disappointment. Caesar salad good, mussels very salty, pork chop overcooked and dry. We are willing to pay higher prices for quality and delicious dishes, however our experience was not worth it.

    R Wine Bar & Kitchen is my local go to but when I have friends in from out of town they never disappoint. We started with shared bottles of wine and those that didn’t want wine had a fine selection of beer. Shared appetizers for the table and being able to order different types of Italian food that we could all taste from each other made the night fantastic. Without the staff none of this would be possible. They are the best!

    Dined with a party of 8. Food was outstanding, service was excellent, and wine list was extensive. The only downside was that the jazz band playing was too loud for the space making it almost impossible to have a conversation at the table.

    The best Italian place in Sioux Falls. Richardo and his staff are top notch and the jazz music adds to the ambience for a great night on the town.
