Great food and fun atmosphere! The staff was so sweet.
We had an excellent meal here. Nothing fancy, but everything was simply done well. Food was delicious, service was prompt and friendly, atmosphere was unprententious. Just a solid, old-school type of place. Would definitely return.
Just ok. Not particularly flavorful.
The food was wonderful! Small and quaint dining room.
Bartender was dropping MF & F bombs across the dining room while passing out on the house shots to women. I was there with my teenager & it was a horrible atmosphere. I guess I don’t have to wonder anymore why the place was empty at 6 PM
Came with friends and we had a 830 reservation. To be told it would be another 30 minute wait. Then not only is the wrong food brought out but our waitress came over 1 time on her own and we had to flag her down every other time. The food was bad. Not coming back
Dirty bread plates with spaghetti sauce on them, bringing the wrong orders to the wrong tables, very mediocre food. Try somewhere else in the North End.
Wonderful experience! Delicious food!
We had a large party, even one more than we had a reservation for. The team was very accommodating. Sunny was our waitress and she did a great job managing the large group!
The food was terrific.
A recent trip to Riccardo’s was better than expected. Great Italian authentic atmosphere with excellent food. Portions were not overly large which I appreciated! Also, pricing was not excessive. Tables are very close together and the restaurant is very loud.
Very quick service and great food but just a little cramped. Would come again!
Amazing food and service. We only randomly went here and are so glad we did. Get the meatballs!
Went for dinner with group of 7 for During NEU parents weekend. Great food and service. Loved the menu and wine list. Tommy our waiter was fantastic.
Food and service were mediocre, not worth the price
Tommy, the waiter, was the best we have encountered in years. This server is a gem !!
I will go here again, partially for the food but 100% for our server Tommy! Made us feel right at home and was attentive without being overbearing. I ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo with broccoli, very good but a little overcooked and needed some salt. Would get again though! It was good enough for leftovers!
Always excellent. Delicious Orichette with sausage and broccoli rabe. Our server tonight, Mike, even recommended a great Brunello that wasn't on the list! Make sure to ask if they have some hidden off-list gems. That was a nice surprise. But Riccardo's always delivers. Never disappointed.
We were there to celebrate my daughter and three friends who had the makeup 2020 BC Graduation.
The staff made it fun and even brought out shots for all to toast with. Cheers!
Was festive environment and they were able to accommodate a somewhat large party.
We arrived for our reservation and were told we would have to wait 20-30 minutes for table. They didn’t have what we wanted to order, and we left 2 hours later without eating as our food never arrived.
Terrible service, terrible food. Waited almost 2 hours for food and when it arrived it was terrible. Advertised as having gluten free options but when asked didn’t seem to understand. If you have gluten free needs, do not come here. Restrooms dirty. Would not recommend to anyone. Ruined our day.
Terrible food, awful service
This was the second time in the last few months we ate at Ricardo's. Both times the food was fair and the service poor. Tonight was my daughter's birthday. We ordered drinks that took 20 minutes to come. Then my dinner came. My husband and daughter's dinner did not come for almost 30 minutes later . Meanwhile , no offer to refill drinks or water . No lasagna both times we went. They don't have a full bar - just beer, wine and cordials. Husband and daughter had pasta that was bland. We had been there so long with poor service and fair food that we didn't order dessert. Walked to Quincy Market to get dessert instead. We won't go back.
The entree dishes were very disappointing. My wife had eggplant parm and it was luke warm and in her words not as good as Costco’s. My seafood pasta which was the most expensive dish on menu was tasteless. Wine list good and appetizers good. Ambiance very good in the outdoor setting. Service adequate on a busy night. We would not go back.
Great waiter, was a crazy busy crowded night but great service. Was loud but expected with so many people around.
Meeting with extended family in Boston
WE LOVED Riccardo's! We want a traditional Italian restaurant in the North end and we were so happy with our choice. The food was fantastic. Several of us had shrimp in our dishes and it was so tender and sweet and the flavors were perfect! If we lived in Boston we would ago her all the time! Than you for an incredible meal.
We had a great meal with great friends. The stuffed meatball appetizer was amazing and so was the seafood fra diavlo. The piece of tirimisu they gave to the birthday boy was to die for.
Waited over 1.5 hours for terrible food. Never again.
Horrible. Food and service both. Would not go back
We waited over 1.5 hours for our food, couldn’t get our waiter’s attention and the food came out cold. Definitely not going back.
Service was quick and attentive. Food came quickly and was delicious. Got busy fast (we went at 6:30) so
I could see things slowing down the larger the crowd. Great staff sprinkled with new help.
Great Boston North End location, attentive staff, excellent food, great wine by the glass.
Found Riccardo's to be an extremely great place to have dinner. Never been before but will definitely be back. Stuffed Meatballs are AMAZING. Mike our waiter was fantastic. Great wine selection paired perfectly with my dinner. Can not recommend this place enough
Great food! Nice, attentive waiter!
My boyfriend and I had a date night here as we were visiting Boston for the night. I had the fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and it was soooo good. My boyfriend got the veal parm with penne, he said he enjoyed it. For an appetizer, we got the limoncello shrimp (I think that’s what it is called) and it was such a unique dish, it was cooked to perfection and the flavor was great. Our waiter was very attentive. He was making jokes with us and even offered to take a picture of my boyfriend and I. I’m so happy that out of all the restaurants in the area we chose Riccardo’s.
They could not have been nicer. Such a great team there and the food was delish. Their wine list was a little limited but we were able to make do!
We were seated upstairs, where the temperature was so cold and the waiters were screaming and singing. Our food took about 45 minutes to came out, only to be completely wrong . One dish was drenched in wine to the point that we couldn’t eat it. One meal didn’t arrive until 15 minutes after the entire table got their food. Overall, the food and vibe of the restaurant was completely off. Also, none of the staff in the kitchen wore their masks. They did offer free cake for my friends birthday but the waiter blew out the candle by accident. Respectfully, the prices of the food did not reflect the poor value of the food and restaurants hospitality.
waiter was yelling and screaming (jokingly) with other tables (presumably of his friends) which made it INCREDIBLY noisy and hard to hear anyone at our table. All food was cold, and veal was entirely raw.
