The food was delicious service was a little slow but they were pretty busy and on a Friday night you kinda anticipate that. Overall highly recommended will be back. Try the meatballs!!!

It did take a long time between the appetizers and dinner but as we ordered a lot of apps it was fine. Not a quiet place at all . Would recommend and would go again!

They were able to accommodate our party of 17 on graduation night with no issues. Seating was not crammed and we all had enough space. Waitress was fantastic. I wish I remembered her name to give her a proper shout-out! She was quick to get our drink orders in and appetizers were coming out almost as soon as we ordered them. The other staff was also attentive, and no one ever had an empty water glass. The food was excellent, and everyone in the party enjoyed their dish. We had an amazing evening at Riccardo's and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great experience!

Beware they don’t have a liquor license for real cocktails. Everything flavored. Tourist excuses provided to a near local. Food did not match menu description. Good flavor on a gristly chop for me. Did not have the prosciutto and cheese stuffing that was the key to the concept. My wife had a lasagna cheese block. Turning tables. I eat out a lot. Truly disappointing. Never take time to write reviews, but this deserves one.

We wanted a place with good italian cuisine but casual/nice. Riccardo's is a good fit for both with a sweet view of the Paul Revere House. The noise level started low and was deafening by the time we left. This is true for all of the restaurants in the North End that we have visited. They quaint, delightful and get energetic! Our servers were very attentive and kind and our food was delivered promptly. The calamari Antipasti was very good and the meals were good - a bit underwhelming - but good and satisfying. I would certainly return to try some other menu items.

Dishes tried were chicken Parm, lasagna, pappardelle with shrimp, clams linguini and a chicken Alfredo. Appetizers we ordered were eggplant rolatini,.fried calamari and a portobello dish that was delicious. It did not disappoint! Tomato sauce, which we are so picky about, was perfect!

I had found a reservation on open table and booked them for lunch as many restaurants were already booked. When I arrived for the reservation I had asked if we could please sit downstairs as it was much nicer and they had said that the downstairs was fully booked but they were many empty tables. So we went upstairs which does not have much ambience. I had asked the waiter what he had for Chardonnay by the glass and he says to me Chardonnay. So I proceeded to look at the menu and order a glass of Kendall Jackson. Chardonnay. My husband had ordered the chicken piccata which looked like it was boiled in water and had very little flavor he sent it back and did not order anything. The service was very disappointing and the food was mediocre. We came from out of state to visit my son and we had wished we had just went somewhere else… there’s so many great restaurants in Boston. I could not wait to get the check and leave.

Our waitress was the best — so attentive to us, and made terrific suggestions! Wouldn’t change a thing. We all enjoyed our meals, and were stuffed by the time we left. Would absolutely come back!

I was told there was a Veal dish by host that was amazing. Unfortunately I got a chop. Waited 2 hours for dinner. I will never return. It was suppose to be a great birthday but terrible. Lovely waitress. Certainly not her fault!

They serve several baby octopuses. Their menu should state baby octopus. Fradiavolo sauce is rather plain.

Nice family owned feel. Service was good; our 2 waitresses for a full upstairs of large parties were stretched thin. Room upstairs got a bit loud as the room filled up. We’d go back in a minute! Encourage you to give it a try!!!!

It tasted like a poor version of egg noodles that I'd make it my kitchen aid. The sauce was not plentiful and the noodles stuck together. Really wasn't very good and couldn't eat it.

The lamb chops were done so well, the meat was just falling off the bone. We went Monday night as a group of 5, we were the only ones in the restaurant. So it was great personal service and everyone had a great meal.

Dinners arrived at 10pm! The upstairs is very loud which made it difficult to hear our searver too. Other than that veal was delicious!

Once we were seated we did not receive and bread and I was really hungry. The entrees, however, were pretty decent. I got the fish risotto and the quality of risotto was not superb, but it did the job. On the other hand, the lasagna tasted homemade and was excellent. The service was sometimes quick but other times slow. Overall, I have been to better Italian restaurants in the North End but it worked out fine here.
