Got to the place following Tripadvisor's reviews and left pretty disappointed. Ordered veal parmigiana, veal al pepe and a pizza. The veal was chewy and hard, the side potatoes and vegetables were pre-cooked and not fresh; the veal parmigiana was all wet and watery because...More

We just love the food at Little Ricardo’s, and the service is fantastic too. Beautiful thin & tasty pizza crust with generous toppings. My new favorite is the fettuccine with seafood & cream sauce - prawns, scallops, fish & calamari, so much seafood & lovely...More

They promised Italian Pizza and that's what we got. Although on the high side price wise, they soon dissipated when we finished our meals. Ordered take-away and was ready on time.

The pizza and the pasta was excellent. One of the best pizza we ever ate. People were so nice. It was a good night. Average look of the restaurant but the food is amazing, unique !

The pizzas (though a bit on the pricey side) are excellent, but the ciabatta bread we ordered for our starter was definitely NOT ciabatta. It was cheap and not tasty; quite a disappointment. Go here for the pizza, but pass on the starters.
