Good food and service but atmosphere was dull.
Dinner and service was excellent!
The food, service and overall vibe are always consistently great.
Great food and service
Fantastic as usual! We are regulars, in the neighborhood & LOVE Riccardo Trattoria!
Love this neighborhood gem!
Birthday dinner for my daughter. Everyone loved the food, one of our favorite restaurants !
Visiting my uncle in Chicago. I took him out to dinner every night I was here. This was the best- from beginning to end- wonderful salad, amazing linguini with clam sauce, and great dessert. Service was excellent- relaxed, friendly, and attentive.
Have been to Riccardo’s many times and it’s always amazing! I actually dream of their white truffle risotto all year and try to come several times when they’re in season. Last night we shared that as an appetizer and I followed with sole piccata and chocolatissimo for dessert. All was perfection. Can’t wait to go back!!
Excellent service. We had the veal, it was prepared perfectly. The waiter made a great choice of wine to pair with the veal.
Amazing! One of the best Italian dinning experiences we have had. We will be back!
Fish was not up to par. I'm sticking to pasta and risotto next time.
Amazing meal with great service!! Small, intimate restaurant with top notch food! How I wish I lived in Chicago so I could dine here much more frequently!!!
White truffles from Alba were the special. $55 for allegedly 5 g on pasta. The truffles were NOT shaved table side, just came from the kitchen with an unknown amount. The pasta clearly had truffle oil in it to “enhance” the dish. Were out of a Barolo on the wine list, then gave me a 2014 other wine instead of the 2013 listed on the menu. Won’t be back.
I'm a big fan of Riccardo Trattoria and have been going there for years. I've never had a bad experience. last trip there nothing was mind blowing but everything was really good!
Food is outstanding. Atmosphere much like an old NY Italian restaurant with no tablecloths and wooden chairs. We did wait over 15 minutes for a table we had reserved. A bit annoying as the waiting space is very small, just inside the door and separated from the dining room by a velvet curtain. Not a comfortable place to stand for 15 minutes. Otherwise, highly recommended. All entrees were wonderful - including liver and veal. Vitello tonnato appetizer is excellent - and not often found on menus these days. Noise level was annoyingly high - and to put a dent in conversation. Try a weeknight.
Waiters have repeatedly been less than average in service and attitude
Cozy atmosphere Great food. Excellent service. Great wine list.
I recommend this place!
A wonderful Italian neighborhood restaurant, It was worth the hour drive at rush hour.
The food is just amazing, always consistent and authentic. I feel like I am in a Trattoria in Rome.
I like the ambiance of the place, typical trattoria. Tables are a little close to each other. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The food was all very good. The list of wines is extensive but just a couple of bottles have affordable prices. I made a reservation indicating that this was a birthday occasion, but this time the restaurant failed in bringing the usual dessert with a candle. Overall the experience was very good.
The service is always terrific. What comes out of the kitchen is always thoughtfully prepared. Inspired dishes and wine offerings.
Just good. Nothing really special. Risotto was over cooked. Carbonara was great. Appetizers were ok. If you live in the neighborhood it’s a great choice as restaurants in LP area are not the best in Chicago. Not a destination choice if you have to Uber or taxi. Just ok/ good.
It was a very relaxing place, the service was really great, the food had great flavor, had a wonderful experience there I would recommend this to others it will be worth your time
Awesome food and exceptional service
We love this place! The food is outstanding every time and the staff could not be more friendly. They prepare veal like no other and it is delicious every way it comes out. They also have a flatbread appetizer with prosciutto and arugula that is a must!
Seated right on time and were quite happy with our service. This place is bustling without being overly noisy. Waiter offered suggestions but didn’t push and that was appreciated. There was an extensive list of Daily Specials, which is very nice. I ordered the veal parmigiana, which was tasty but not exceptional. My wife had the trout, which she loved. Overall this was a pleasant dining experience. One I will definitely repeat.
Delicious food and wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Feels good to go there.
Appetizer and dessert were my favorite. I always go back for the fried zucchini blossom and now I'll be back for the panna cotta!
The open app had several glitches, but the manager was very understanding and sat us down rather quickly. It was Monday night and we were surprised to se as many families eating dinner. It was nice because we had out three year old. I assume that the weekend would draw a different crowd. Excellent food, and perfect portions.
Wonderful meal and service! Can’t wait to come back when the white truffles arrive 😊
The food here is excellent and you can not go wrong with anything on the menu
Service was a little slow at the start [taking and providing drink order, taking dining order], but afterwards was really superb, as was the Manhattan, the carpaccio, and the orichetta con cinghale.
The noise level was on the high side. I would suggest the addition of table cloths to calm things down a bit. I know it would cost more. Maybe that is why most restaurants in Italy charge for “pane and copper to.”? I would be fine with an extra charge for the resulting quietness. And I would advice not taking a table near the kitchen.
Consistently great food and great service!
Zucchini flowers were delicious. Trout special and osso bucco we ordered were solid. If you like Affogato, definitely order but a couple can easily split one order!
I love everything about Riccardo's; it is one of my favorite Chicago restaurants.
My go to neighborhood restaurant. The place was packed and the service was spot on. The server make some great suggestions on pairing. The courses came out timely.
