Riccardo started his career at a very young age in Milan's prestigious "GIRARROSTO" family owned. Then, in 1982 he moved to the United States and he opened the famous Sonny Bono's in Los Angeles. In 1987 he started to work with his cousin Roberto Ruggeri, with him he opened Bice New York, Los Angeles and many others around the world.

Together with his wife (and sous chef), Veronica, and his cousin (and hostess), Barbara, he decided to continue his gastronomic artistry and creativity in his restaurant named after himself "Riccardo Trattoria."

Here through the craftsmanship of an Italian food connoisseur, dishes are prepared with an almost zen-like essentiality that has shaped Riccardo's professional and existential life course. Some highlights of the menu are Veal Chop Milanese, Veal Shank Osso Bucco, Pappardelle with Short Rib Ragu, various classic Rissotto preparations, and for dessert options like Panna Cotta, Homemade Tiramisu and Tuscan Ricotta Cheesecake round out the menu.

    Food is always excellent— but the experience was not. A VERY LOUD group was seated right next to us in the yet empty restaurant. This venue is always noisy— but this group next to us was rudely noisy, with no regard for others. As the entire restaurant filled, it was just impossible to hear. It was not a great experience unfortunately.

    Our waiter, Nino, was outstanding. He knew his "stuff" and was very attentive.

    Waited 55 minutes for our 6pm indoor reservation in their very small vestibule. The restaurant was overbooked. Then we felt very rushed when we actually sat down. Clearing plates before we were finished eating them. Not the best anniversary dinner. Food always tastes great. Not sure if it was worth the wait.

    The appetizers and dessert were outstanding, while the entrees and service were good. We did not receive bread until we asked; when we asked for additional bread with our appetizers, it was $4. We went to Riccardo Trattoria because soft-shell crabs were on the menu, and the appetizer, as well as the mussels, were delicious. The branzino (fish) was soft but, fortunately, not mushy. The meat in the pasta was tough chunks like sausage. The waiter didn't know the wine. You should go to Bar Roma in Andersonville for the entrees instead.

    Lovely place with wonderful service. Food however is just ok. A few things very good and others rather tasteless. Soggy bread, bland soup, minimal sauce on pasta dish…This is my second time visiting and I hoped for better but I don’t think we’ll come back. It just doesn’t seem worth the cost to me.
