There is NO atmosphere here so dont expect anything fancy.The service was ok...our server forgot a few things but made up for it with the her friendliness and patients with my 2 children who can be a hand full. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and family orientated. I was SO excited they had raw clams (which were delish)... More

Recent business dinner with 9 other colleagues provided a nice atmosphere at a secluded table in a corner for us to discuss some work and new items. Antipasto platters started off the evening that were very good with a nice house dressing. Various meals ordered, but my eggplant parm along with an order of hot peppers was a great choice.... More

We were greeted cheerfully by any staff we saw as soon as we entered, We were seated even though we were not all there, even though I had forgotten to make the reservations. This was a group of friends who dine out monthly, and there was no problem with getting separate checks. The service was excellent. Our meals were wonderful.... More

Quiet setting with good food. The waitress was good and also friendly. It's a little upscale prices aren't bad.

I have always enjoyed the food at this restaurant. Recommended it to friends and brought guests there. Now I have read for the second time this year,failing health inspections.The reasons for failing are quite serious (not the sometimes minor infractions).I am sad and will not return until this restaurant gets consistent passing inspections.

Have been to Rico's on many many occasions and you know you'll always get traditional, comforting, immensely portioned meals. Steve is (almost) always right there to greet you and does he have a gift for recalling faces & names & history! Just the kind of welcome that makes anyone feel like a valued family member. Once seated the waitstaff will... More
