    We had dinner here tonight for the first time. We knew nothing about it, found it on Open Table. The service was amazing, professional, friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. The food was amazing. We had Chicken Parmesan and Linguine with Calamari. The pasta was so fresh and cooked perfectly, the sauce was amazing. We enjoyed every bite. We finished up with a delicious cheesecake that was just the right amount of sweet. The atmosphere was great, we had a simply wonderful night!

    Location was good, but service was a little scattered. All night, the food runner kept bringing every dish out of the kitchen by every table to ask patrons if it was ordered by them; what they call “auctioning” the food. Also, chicken piccata came without pasta, just two grilled breasts with about 3 artichokes and 3 capers on it. Asked for pasta to go with it, and server brought a side of pasta covered in marinara sauce that we were charged $9 for.

    7 of us in town for a couple baseball games. They got us seated 20 minutes ahead of our reservation time. Other than being out of an appetizer most of us wanted, everything else was amazing. Food was excellent. Service was good. Have to note they do not have a full bar - a few beer choices, plenty of wine options, and a few cocktails. Would highly recommend for good Italian food!

    All male servers were rude and pushy. When we were leaving, server walked right into my wife and never said anything. When we first sat, server took my wife's drink order then left and didn't take my drink order. My wife ordered the Eggplant Parm and she liked it. I had the Haddock which I did not care for the sauce and had to pay an extra $8 to have two tablespoons of boxed linguine under the fish. No sauce was added for the linguine. Overall, very disappointed as we chose Riccardo's because of the reviews.

    Food was ok not fantastic. The Caesar salad and bruschetta and special appetizer meatball filled with ricotta cheese and topped with marinara were the best. The gnocchi was fair, a bit pasty and tasteless sauce. To be fair, we asked for an off-menu item, arrabiata sauce which is a slightly spicy tomato sauce. They said they had it but we think just added pepper flakes to regular marinara. So, probably not fair to downgrade them on this item. We had a very early reservation at 5:30 for a Saturday and got a great table right next to the open window on a lovely evening. By the time we left at 7 it was packed so it’s very popular. I would go back to try other items because it seems to be a very authentic place where the waiters are professionals for life.

    From the gentleman at the host stand, & everyone in between - the service was impeccable. Food was amazing. Pasta with broccolini and sausage, chicken parm and the veal rolatini special were stand outs! Ask for Brett’s section he was fantastic. We’ll be back!

    It’s the 2nd time we’ve been in only 1 month. We’ve spent a fair amount of time in Italy and the food tastes homemade with fresh ingredients, and you can feel the genuine commitment to creating excellent food in a very relaxed environment. We’ll be back!

    This was not our first time at Riccardo's and certainly won't be our last. The food is always top notch (and with vegetarians in our group, they are always happy to customize), service is top notch, and the location is perfect! I was surprised at this visit by the fairly loud music, which didn't seem to fit the venue. But after a glass of wine, I didn't much care... :) A wonderful way to spend a night with family or friends!!!

    We had a late lunch this Memorial Weekend. Our waiter was awesome, we wish we knew his name so we could request him on our next visit. He made our lunch non rushed, answered our questions, the food was delicious. We had the meatballs as an appetizer then lasagna and fettuccine Alfredo. The bread was okay. We look forward to going back and hope to have the same waiter. One our best dinners in No End .
