Riccio's Steak & Seafood

Steakhouse
For three decades the name Riccio has been synonymous with fine dining in the desert. Richard and Patricia Riccio set the bar for outstanding Italian cuisine 40 years ago when they opened the original Riccio’s in uptown Palm Springs. Two of their sons, eager to carry on the family tradition, last spring unveiled Riccio’s Steak and Seafood with a new menu concept in a higher profile location downtown. Service and personal attention have been the Riccio’s hallmark and they pledge to continue this tradition.

For the casual diner, Riccio’s offers a relaxed patio presentation for watching downtown Palm Springs unfold while sampling their intriguing, seasonally changing menu. Riccio’s bar faces lively Palm Canyon Drive, and picture windows frame a sculptural fountain.

The desert's top steak and seafood restaurant. Come taste why over 40 years of customers keep coming back to this downtown landmark.

    My Mediterranean Seafood Grill would have been better in a garlic butter sauce. My husband's lobster ravioli was delicious. The lobster bisque was great as was his clam chowder. The teramisou was the best I've had in the valley. The waitress was attentive without hovering.

    As usual the food was outstanding. The service was superb. Danny, the owner, and our server stayed late as my wife and I were busy talking to the guys at the table adjacent to ours. Danny, we appreciate your never ending s desire to take care of your customers and make us feel comfortable. I apologize for not noticing how late the evening had gotten. Kuddos to you and our server. We’ll see you again this summer on way to Pebble Beach. Thanks again, Lonnie and Pat Eichinger

    Very nice experience. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We unfortunately had very loud talkers at the table next to us who never heard of indoor voices. We definitely would return. They could stand to lower the lights a little, it’s a little bright for fine dining.

    Our usual restaurant before attending play at PCT. The owner Danny and server Oscar always greet us like old friends and know our drink orders and appetizers. Riocco's is not recognized as it should be for quality dinning.

    I ordered the daily special which was Pacific Sea Bass which was quite ample in size but, had an unusual texture; rather than flaking the flesh separated in clumps. The minestrone soup was far too watered down

    Beware of out of date menus and pricing on the web. Lunch pastas are now $17 to $20. Food is ok but nothing outstanding. Their paella is most peculiar, certainly not Spanish. Service was good.

    This was a visit for a birthday dinner with a party of 4. Our two friends split a large steak meal and they seemed to be pretty satisfied. It was a different experience for me and my husband. I ordered the spaghetti bolognese with meat balls. The spaghetti was Luke warm and the meatballs were cold. My husband ordered the filet medium requesting a warm pink center. His steak came out cold, well done and chewy. First time we’ve had an aged steak chewy like leather. The vegetables in the side were cold and beyond al dente. Carrots were a little softer than the broccoli but the broccoli was just hard. So the two veggies were cooked but very cold. The other two guests received their steak before we had our two meals delivered which was bizarre since both of our meals were very cold and made improperly. Well I waited for a new steak and it just took forever. It seemed like they just cooked the other orders before they even tried to cook a new steak for me. Anyway everyone was fine eating and I was just hungry waiting on mine. I eventually told them to just cancel my order and I’ll pay for the cold veggies that I ate. Actually the three tiny potatoes that I got with my meal were good and very warm. The best part of the meal. Again it seemed like my food and my husband’s was prepared hours ahead of time for a 6:45 reservation. It was just hard to believe how bad the food was. By far the worst meal we’ve had in Palm Springs. Wasn’t a very nice experience for my husbands birthday.

    I was very disappointed by the food. Steak was super mediocre. I could have made this meal at home. We were on a girls trip and this was supposed to be our fancy night out. The service was great but the food left much to be desired.

    Great outdoor patio with heaters. Good for people watching. For sure, this place is safe from vampires. Mussels had a LOT of garlic but it could have been toasted a bit longer. Good wine flavor. Lobster bisque was very veggie forward. Mains were cannelloni which was quite good with a fresh Bolognese sauce. I had veal marsala (after first being served veal parmegiano) which was quite nice. Again a lot of garlic and mushrooms. Potatoes were a bit over roasted. Wine list was good and actually pretty reasonable. Friendly staff. Not over the top amazing but a solid, low key place for a nice al fresco dinner.

    This was a great dissatisfaction with service and food. My Paella was absolutely a joke. Small and bad smelling mussels, one small scallop and topped with pan seared chicken cutlet, disgusting at the least. My wife’s salmon was dry and over cooked and when she asked to sub potatoes for the mashed, they obliged but failed to tell us it would be considered a side dish. My son’s filet mignonette was stringy and dry and dense. I questioned whether they mistakenly served him sirloin but the server was sure it was filet mignonette. Not sure how this place has been in business as long as they claim. On the bright side, my whiskey tastes exactly as I was used too. Will never go back and definitely not recommend this place for a nice and stress free dinner.
