Riccardo Michi comes from a restaurant Family in Milan established since 1943 called Girarrosto, one of the first Tuscan restaurants in town and still operating.

After moving to the US, Riccardo opened Sonny Bono, IL Giardino Ristorante and Madeo Ristorante in Beverly Hills. In 1987 he helped his cousin Roberto Ruggeri open the first Bice restaurant in New York City. Since then, he has worked in the opening of many of the restaurants in the group. In 2002 Riccardo moved to Chicago with his wife Veronica to be the executive chef of Bice on Ontario.

Finally Riccardo and Veronica, also a chef, decided to open their own place and in 2006 called Riccardo Trattoria. Considered by many to be the top Italian restaurant in town, receiving the Bib Gourmand from Michelin in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Now, Riccardo and Veronica have opened Riccardo Enoteca, right across the street from Riccardo Trattoria on Clark.

    Good starting salad a la greca....then the seafood pasta and chicken parm (not on menu; asked to convert the veal parm to chicken) were both good but nothing exceptional. Good wine list.

    We were the first reservation for dinner. No other patrons were in the restaurant. We were seated next to the kitchen and could hear the staff talking. They were using some cleaning solution to clean grease traps and the oder ruined the dining experience for me. The food was very good but very unpleasant to smell the order coming from cleaning.

    I have been going to Riccardo Enoteca for years. It is my go to place in Chicago. The small restaurant ambiance is delightful. The food is tasty and hot when served. The coursing is well done, unhurried but attentive. The menu is a combination of well known stables and new offerings. All of which are delectable. The wine list is exceptional for a restaurant of its size. My dining companion is a discriminating diner. Often she will be very critical and underwhelmed by the dining experience. At Riccardo Enoteca never is she dissatisfied.
