We just got home from a funeral luncheon at Rico's. You know how funeral luncheons can be. This was totally sublime. Rico's took such tender loving care of the bereaved family and friends. I have been to Rico's before on several occasions and testify as to the fabulous food they have there. But today they outdid themselves and made the... More

Our family of 10 thought we would try a nice restaurant in our neighborhood for Christmas Eve this year. We typically go to a 5 star restaurant in Downtown or Mt. Washington. Prior to our visit we have heard good things about Rico's and also a member of our group attended a private dinner event at the restaurant and had... More

You see Rico's up on the hill. Everyone here gives great attention to the customers. They have a great wine list. You have to start with the zucchini. I didn't know this was so unique to Pittsburgh. I was thrilled to see rotolo on the menu. This was with spinach and prosciutto. Three servings. Delicious. I tried my friends Virginia... More

Ten of is ate at Rico's on Christmas Eve. The restaurant was absolutely crazy and I don't feel the staff could handle the crowd. Our waitress would disappear for 10 minutes or more at a time. My husband had to go up to the bar to get me a drink. Three out of the 10 meals were cold. We had... More

We had dinner here and it was really good. We tried the fettuccini Alfredo and others tried the fish. Both were very well prepared. Service was excellent. Prices are reasonable. We would definitely go back.

I rarely do reviews, and I don't live in Pittsburgh, but I had such a wonderful experience I thought it needed to be brought to everyone attention. I had never been to this place but my sister in law suggested we try it. Turns out, the place has been there since like 1979. We walked in; nice bar area, nothing... More

7 adults 2 children. We had a 6:30 reservation we're seated around 7. At 8:30 I tracked our waitress down that we were ready to order. She told us she was hard of hearing. Not super impressive. Food was ok. We ordered a Caesar salad for 6. My mom literally got 8 pieces of romaine. My pasta rico was extremely... More

With a group on business trip and we decided to eat at Rico's. We had a good experience, the service was good & the view from windows was very pleasant. The steak was top quality(prime) and everyone enjoyed their meal. Rico's took me back 25 plus years in style & feel. Rico's menu is on the higher priced scale, but... More

Best Italian Food I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Staff along with the owner himself are their to greet you and make sure your every need is met. The menu has much to choose from and will special order something if needed. Highly recommended if you are wanting Italian Food like the old country.
