Took my family there to celebrate a relatives' birthday. Food was exceptional, wait staff was very helpful and friendly.

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/20/2012

Growing up on the Island, Ricks was always a favorite- HOWEVER its not what it once was. The food was the worst I have ever eaten there and I will never return again. The completely empty dining room when we arrived should have been enough to scare me away- but having faith in past experiences , we stayed - and I regret it. I'm pretty sure between the Stoffers lasagna and the PATHETIC excuse for veal parmesan- the cook should find a new occupation. The back talk from the kitchen over my complaint about the food could be heard in the silent and empty dining area- guess they have not figured out WHY the place was empty of diners, let alone control their voices when someone complains about sub par food. I Have know Rick and his son for over 30 years- a shame I say. more

A Perfect Restaurant For Our Small Island 4/9/2011

Being honest, Davis Island, a gem of a community in South Tampa, just outside of the Downtown Business District and home to Tampa General Hospital is not a dining mecca but we have a few very good 'neighborhood' restaurants. One which stands out is Rick's Italian Cafe. While not listed in the Mobil Dining Guides of the overly critical world of uptight epicureans, it is very good non-complicated 'American' interpreted Italian home style Food Restaurant. The Food is fresh, properly, non-overly flavorfuled and severed hot; and the beverages are served cold. If you live here they conveniently deliver, if you do not you will not be disappointed that you came to Davis Island and enjoyed a good meal. more

Great Food 3/19/2010

My family enjoy the authentic food and family atmosphere. We really don't like big chains and the prefab food. Great wine selection too. Pros: Freshly baked bread and authentic food Cons: Could use coat of paint more

Gross 11/12/2008

I went there with my wife and hoped for a romantic evening with some good Italian cuisine. We were highly disappointed! My pizza tasted like they put ketchup on it and the employees were rude. Not only that but there was straight trash sitting at the bar being loud and obnoxious. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Pros: it's on Davis Islands Cons: everything about the place is horrible. more

Why is this place still open? 8/31/2008

Consumers Beware! How is this place still open? The service is bad, the food is bad, the place is dirty, and the family that operates it is a group of losers. I highly recomend that County Health Dept. shut this place down now. Cons: everything more

Rude service, homeless cooks, Does not have food from menu!!!! 7/16/2007

Very rude Jody waiter, lousy food cooked by what appeared to be a homeless guy. Air Conditioning was never felt at all. Pros: There is no pro Cons: No AC, homeless cooks, no food on menu in stock more
