Il Ricordi is our go-to spot for pizza in the area and I have lived here long enough to try them all (espresso's, parkhill etc). We have not eaten in the restaurant yet (byob) but I usually read the specials board when I come in and it always looks tempting including offering a beef wellington one night which I wish... More

Il Ricordi occupies the building that was I think West Fitchburg Pizza. Smallish, and informal, the dining room is comfortable, and they have a BYOB policy - so grab a bottle of wine and go! Cheese ravioli and lasagna both clock in at $12 - both were delicious, healthy servings of homemade Italian food. The owner was very friendly, making... More

This restaurant is kind of tucked away in a location where it's not visible from the boulevard but it's a gem if you'd like Italian atmosphere & good Italian food. Served piping hot & oozing with cheesy goodness.

We visited one afternoon because the wait at The Old Mill up the street was 1.5 hrs. (beautiful fall day with Apple Fest going on at Wachusett Mountain). It was very quiet at 2:30 pm on a Saturday. We ordered a Caesar salad and a small pizza. Both were very good; salad fresh and the sauce on the pizza was... More

While most people think this is a pizza place they have an extensive dining room with Incredible entrees I had a dish there with fresh Lobster that was absolutely phenomenal worthy of a five star restaurant so don't think this is just a place to grab a great pizza while you can do that you can sit in the back...

Its been a while since I went there . I ordered a hamburg pizza and when I got home this pizza looked like it was reheated from the day before. I ride by alot and not much going on for a thriving resturant, which its not.

This may be a restaurant the one drives by without noticing it, but it's a must to stop by! The outside of the restaurant isn't fancy and inside looks more like a "House of Pizza," but the food is amazing! We were a party of three, who ordered different things on the menu: spaghetti with meatballs, lasagna with meat sauce,... More

A spur of the moment decision to eat there as we've gone by it many times. While it's not much to look at, we have no complaints. The dining room might be small, but it's clean,and the waitress was very personable. The portions were more than enough & the lasagna was very good, the chicken parm was good too. The... More

This place is terrible from the time you enter, until the time you leave. The food was bland, the atmosphere was horrible, the service was the worst. I have nothing good to say about this place. It was like eating at a yard sale. They sell beer but only to take home, you cannot consume alcohol with your meal, but... More
