For lunch the classic meals on the left side of their menu are great and also very affordable. The wait staff are attentive and friendly. Nice food, nice surroundings and a good value.

The food is real tasty! They have a $35 for two people special. You can have appetizers (even wine), soup or salad, two entrees and dessert if you pick wisely. Gosh you gotta try the goat cheese (wow), rib steak vesuvio or lamb shank. Comes with all the trimmings. The menu is so extensive you have a hard time picking.... More

We had dinner here. It was pretty crowded when we were there. They have a very large menu including lots of daily specials. We both ordered their Veal Parmesan which was very good and was an adequate sized portion. It came with a house salad, a side of Mostaccioli, and a basket of fresh baked buttery garlic rolls. The Mostaccioli... More

Stopped for dinner with the wife tonight. Had the beef ravioli and the wife had linguini and clam sauce. Both plates were good as well as the service.

This was a nice surprise. Good food, good service, friendly staff. Nice wine selection at reasonable prices. Large menu, many vegetarian options. Large portions. Nice dessert selection too with small servings of cheesecake at $2.99.

This is a restaurant we frequent for good Italian food. My favorites are the Veal Parma and / or Linguini with white clam sauce. Both are excellent meals. Pricing is reasonable and coupons are available for "buy one meal and get one free" ( up to $14). Service is always fast and the meals are served hot. Service is quick... More

Ricardo's was only Pizza place in the area who would take a reservation for a group of 16-18 persons. Our waitress Kristin was very nice, patient and helpful.

The food is good, and so is the wine. They often send coupons in the mail but the entrees are not that expensive even if you don't have a coupon. Love the salad with their own dressing!

Riccardo's Ristorante is a spectacular restaurant with an amazing array of delicious meals. Wife, Katy Garcia's collection of angels displayed inside the restaurant blends perfectly with husband Chef Waldo Garcia's old-fashioned Italian menu items and daily imaginative specials are sure to please everyone. Our menu items are rich and fulfilling. We offer everything from Eggplant Parmigiana, stuffed with cheese, to Pork Tenderloin Spinaci, which is covered in sauteed garlic, mushroom, and spinach then baked to perfection with a generous layer of mozzarella cheese. Whether it's our Cheesecake Flan or our Homemade Tiramisu served goblet style, our dessert menu is sure to entice all of our guests. And last but not least, Riccardo's also offers a full service bar perfect for waiting diners. There is always plenty for everyone at Riccardo's!
