The worst restaurant on earth. Sloppy
service with disgusting food; do you really call that Italian food? I went there on 6.2012, and it hurt my feelings. You have to wait for a long time for your food, and the salad is a disgrace to Italian cuisine. One of my friend got sick and threw up two hours later after having such disgusting food. The price was also ridiculously high, when we decided not tip on the sloppy service, the waitress decided to "tip herself"! (I did not write any tips on the receipt.) I am a business man and had to go back to the NY city the following week, so I do not have time to deal with this incident. This is a crime and she deserves to be punished for her criminal act. This is just a heads up, be careful when you decided to go to this restaurant.
Went there recently 3-2010 and had one of the worst meals of my life!! I ordered a zuppa di pesce and every bit of it was well over cooked the clams werent even in the shells they were swimming in the bowl. My wife had a steak it was under seasoned tough and not the right temperature.The only nice thing about it was the owner gave us a drink on the house after dinner, which we needed after the meal we had there.
Happy Hour and Beyond.
Riccardi's put out a batch of clams casino for happy hour Friday night, they were fantastic. I think the whole bar went for them. Had Chicken Parm for dinner and the sauce was mouth watering. Truly fantastic.
Taking care of customers.
I was at Riccardi's the other night. The owners and staff are friendly, approachable people. The chef came out, asked how the food was, the owner was there, asked the same (outstanding by the way) and comped us a drink after the meal.
The personalized service and touch is a lost art that you don't see at most restaurants anymore. It's worthwhile and appreciated. I'll certainly go back again.
