Ricciuti's does sound a bit like Bertucci's, the large brick oven pizza chain, and their pizza offerings are very much alike, but that's where the similarities end. Ricciuti's has its own identity, expressed in its menu and its environs. The old converted house has a lot of niches and is thankfully worlds away from Bertucci's cavernous warehouses. The patio dining is surprisingly elegant, possibly more so than the indoor tables. The service is largely very competent and very friendly.
