First visit and we would go back. A bit cozy but excellent food and service and very reasonably priced wine menu.
Amazing service and fantastic food! This is a great place for delicious Italian.
It is a small restaurant with excellent Italian food. Having lived in Italy, the dishes are expertly prepared and authentic with nice touches. Rather large portions. We will return!
All good as usual but pasta entrée with marinara and cheese was overwhelmed with cheese. Just really wanted pasta with marinara with light cheese. This was my first time for the dish and I should have asked first.
Always great food and service. Visit for special occasions and just for a casual gathering--you will be glad you did.
We had a delightful time! Wish the waiter had known a bit more about the wine list but we made it work and the food was incredible! Wanted to take leftovers home but just had to finish it all!
Charming neighborhood gem with grounded southern Italian cuisine. Value priced wine list and very accomodating service.
Went for dinner on Sunday and we were surprised at how many children there were. It seems to be a family go-to spot for the neighborhood. We very much enjoyed our meal.
Always enjoy coming here. Love the cozy atmosphere and the great food. Will definitely be back.
I absolutely love this neighborhood spot. It’s intimate, casual, and the menu is perfect.
My friend took me here for my birthday. The restaurant is charming and intimate. The food is outstanding and the service is stellar. I would definitely go back. Make reservations in advance. It’s a small place and they book up quickly.
Excellent food and excellent service EVERY time!! Perfect for date night. Ask for the hot bruschetta - no longer on the menu, but amazing!
Great first course, pasta, and risotto options. Desserts- very good. Pizza....ehhh.
This is an Italian restaurant that has a unique and creative take on Italian food. The restaurant week's selection were varied the so we went with two different entrees Roast Duck and Pasta with seafood. Both were very good, although the duck had a few chewy pieces.
The appetizer . of grilled calamari with salad was excellent.
The service was excellent and attentive.
Outstanding traditional menu with top quality ingredients prepared in a professional manner and served by a competent staff in a quiet, attractive room. A pleasure to have in our neighborhood, but would be worth traveling to. A real delight.
A huge assortment of choices for the $33 Restaurant Week menu. Great variety, huge portions, and great service. The Enoteca was much quieter than the Trattoria across the street--even in a busy Saturday night, we were able to converse and linger without any pressure. Food was really good--all in all, a great reminder of a neighborhood gem that we should frequent more often!
This place never disappoints!
Came in Saturday night for restaurant week and I was blown away with the menu. Probably one of the best restaurant week menu in the city definitely recommend it.
I’ll be going back before it ends.
Every time we eat here it gets better and better. The kitchen is hitting on all cylinders. We can’t wait to return.
We LOVE this restaurant. It always feels like "home" when we go in. The staff is wonderful and the food is delicious.
We have dined here several times, the food & service are excellent. Storefront setting is cozy & comfortable. As close as you will come in Chicago to replicating a great trattoria experience in Florence off the main streets & away from the mediocre tourist traps.
We always have a great meal and the atmosphere is relaxed.
Food is always good; service friendly & attentive; warm, welcoming place that is a neighborhood gem!
Superb food and drink in an unusually comfortable European small restaurant feel. The service is flawless and friendly. I love this place and I love the menu.
We love this restaurant and consistently go. The best Italian food in Chicago.
Always reliable for a great Italian meal with quaint ambiance and spot on service. My husband and I love going here!
What a wonderful meal we had at Riccardos’s, amazing food great service and cozy atmosphere. We came in after walking around the LP Zoolights it was freezing out there but this meal really hit the spot.
Definitely recommend this place!!!
We had a great time. The service was attentive, but it didn’t seemed rushed, despite us taking a long time to order the food. I really liked that. We actually were able to have a nice long conversation.
The food was unimaginatively prepared and missed their target. The soup was thick and tasteless, the chicken piccata tasted pure lemon juice and way too many capers. The food had to be sent back because it was cold...the plates weren't heated so cooled too quickly. This restaurant is a miss!
Very good experience at Riccardo’s. Very light and delicious pizza followed by perfectly cooked pasta. The wait staff was super. I will absolutely return.
We really had a great expirence start to finish.
Top level service and the food was delicious!
Grilled octopus outstanding. Great burrata, Branzino with perfect sauce. Wine list very well selected. Desserts apple tart and ricotta cheesecake to come back for as well.
Really really nice!! Small and intimate; waiter was great! felt like you were in Italy
Neighborhood gem. Worth a drive if you are not nearby. Quiet. Quaint. Service is always great. Very accommodating. I normally would never order a pork chop when dining out but the Pork Chop Emiliana is absolutely amazing. Large portion and so delicious. We’ve been here for a night out with friends and also had family night out here with our kids. Absolutely recommend!
RE is always a great experience. It is our neighborhood favorite. The food is consistently excellent and that service outstanding.
Very nice experience. Great service and food was good.
Always a favorite.
The vitello tonnato is delicious.
Great night out with friends. We went to see zoo lights and walked to restaurant. Dinner was fantastic highly recommend the porkchop.
One of the best Italian restaurants I've been to in some time.
My first with my now wife was here 3 years ago. Now we go back every year for an early Christmas dinner, before things get crazy with the Family!!! We love it! P&P
Excellent service, cozy atmosphere and marvelous food made for a great evening. We really enjoyed the Gorgonzola and pear pizza and the veal parmigiana scallopini. Highly recommended!!
