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.

    This is a favorite! Jamie is the best waitress and the cocktails are generous and well made. I tried the scallops for the first time last night and they were exceptionally good.

    Food was delicious but it took an hour for it to arrive. When we asked when our order was coming, our waiter seemed offended. When it did arrive, our food was very good. This restaurant is in a nice location and the menu is excellent. I would go back but the waiter I had could have been nicer about the wait,

    This is an "old school" established restaurant. Food was very good and pricing was quite reasonable compared to how expensive restaurants are getting. We had the wedge salad and Ceaser salad and then the vodka penne and the lobster ravioli. Everything was quite good. The decor inside is a little old and dated, but what would you expect from a place that has been established for several decades. We are locals and have driven by many times and finally decided to try it and aren't sorry. Will definitely visit again and try other dishes.

    Was very disappointed in our evening here. First, we were sat a very awkward table. The host was kind enough to move us. Thank you. Our server had a nice personality but disappeared after we ordered through the entire first and second course. The food was not good - very little flavor and the presentation left a lot to be desired. Not worth the money for sure. We won’t return.

    They have a very good chef, preparing very nice meals. Prices are within reason as well. It is a small restaurant with perhaps 20 tables inside and another 25 outside (I am guessing). They leave the front door open, so all of the street noise comes right inside - big mistakes. They play some sort of pop music - with a name like Riccio's, and advertising 40 plus years in Palm Springs, I fully expected something more quiet, something Frank would have appreciated. I wore a sport coat and trousers, but felt overdressed. In the dining area, all tables about 10 feet from the bar, which has a big screen TV, playing sports - so...is this a restaurant or a sports bar??? So, come casual, sit outside as it's just as loud as inside, and enjoy some great Italian food...

    I have no idea how this restaurant gets good reviews, let alone is still in business! The food was just awful! The three of us could not even finish our dishes and one became sick one hour later. The waitress we had was fantastic and fun and partially saved the night. The food seemed overcooked with the worst presentation and was sitting out for a while, if u like old school vegas buffets this is your restaurant!

    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Riccios restaurant and I must say, it was an unforgettable experience. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with warm and friendly service. The ambiance of the restaurant was cozy and inviting, creating the perfect atmosphere for a delightful meal. The menu offered a wide variety of delicious options, making it difficult to choose just one dish. However, whatever I decided on, it exceeded my expectations in terms of flavor and presentation. The attention to detail and the use of fresh, high-quality ingredients was evident in every bite. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable, able to offer recommendations and answer any questions I had. The dessert menu was equally impressive, with a tempting selection of sweet treats to end the meal on a high note. Overall, my experience at Riccios restaurant was nothing short of exceptional. The combination of incredible food, impeccable service, and inviting atmosphere made for a truly memorable dining experience. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a top-notch culinary experience.
