We found this restaurant when Carmen's kept us waiting for our table too long. It was great. Good food. Much frindlier. Nicer atmosphere. Far less crowded. Will never choose Carme...


The waitress really knew how to jack up the bill, I didn't care I wasn't paying for the dinner it was just obvious and a bit obnoxious. She wouldn't give a strait answer and over ...

The food was excellent, wine plentiful... 8/26/2010

We had a company event on July 16 for 98 people and it was thumbs up from all our guests. We came from Florida on an incentive trip and Riccardo's was recommended by the concierge at the Marriott Long Wharf. It was certainly an excellent choice and very close to the hotel which was a BIG plus. Rich who took care of our event was very accomodating and did everything to satisfy our needs. The food was excellent, wine plentiful and service top notch! I personally liked the atmosphere of a family owned business vs. a chain restaurant. It was very homey and I would definitely recommend Riccardo's to anyone. A great dining experience.! All the way from Florida more

It was a tasty experience 8/18/2010

Sharon and I were challenged the moment we stopped in front of Riccardo's Ristorante - in a good way. A man was sitting outside on a bench, resting in the shade of the trees lining the street. As we viewed the menu displayed in the glass case beside the front door, he turned to us and said, "If you aren't satisfied with your meal, it will be on me." Sharon and I had already read the menus displayed in front of several restaurants on the street, and this looked no better or worse than the others, so chose to have our lunch here. Our choice proved to be a very good one. The interior is very relaxing, with warm colors, cotton tableclothes, and tables set with candles. We had a table overlooking the square, with the Paul Revere house in view just up the cobble stone street. Our waitress was very professional and quick - never hovering but always there when we needed her. You would have never guessed she was a college student from a nearby waterfront town, working in Boston for the summer - - she was great! The wine list was very good, with some excellent red wines by the glass. Our appetizers were preceded by freshly made bread with olive oil. We chose the crab cakes, which were very good but didn't compare to those we've had on Block Island or Falmouth, MA. Still, they were very good. The main courses were outstanding! The Risotto alla Riccardo was absolutely delicious, with an excellent combination of cheeses and very tender chicken. Sharon had the Fusilli con Gamberi. It too was delicious with shrimp in a cognac reduction with fresh fusilli and parmigiano reggiano. It was a tasty experience from beginning to end, including the desert. And the man sitting outside of the restaurant was the owner. He added to our North End experience! more

Ricardo's is a better choice 8/9/2010
