Mortified!! 11/29/2011

On Tues. Nov. 29, 2011 at approx 6:30 pm. we decided to try Rico's (Bay Rd) for a pizza. We are two retired over-60 geezers, who came appropriately dressed,and at all times, respectable. Since hubby likes meat on his and I a mix, we decided to order a Works pizza and asked if the veggies could be put on one side and the meat on the other. Waitress said they couldn't do it that way. We then asked if they could just put it all on one half and WE would move some of the meat over when it arrived. Again, she declined stating that it would no longer be a 'works' pizza. Hubby closed the menu at that point and said calmly, ok then we will go somewhere else and we stood up. The waitress then freaked and said fine but added in a loud voice AND DON'T EVER COME BACK!!! We walked over to the only other worker manning the ovens hoping he might be a manager to recount the occurrence. He was willing to do it, but the waitress intervened and told him not to! (I might add they were not busy. There was only one other table occupied) We might have returned another time to try other dishes, but now you can be sure we won't be back! EVER more

GREAT PIZZA 5/10/2011

We had a great experience with an excellent pizza pie and friendly customer service. I have boys who the owner let them make their own pizza which they were thrilled to do! Great place... more

Rico-Rude Uncouth 1/13/2011

his place was deplorable and I didn't even have to eat there. I parked across two spaces (i drive a large, large vehicle) and in three minutes i was back in my car. There was no one else in the parking lot, and the owner comes out of the store and yells, spits and hits my car window... I went inside later after I drove off because he was so offensive...and told him never to do so again. It was public he had no right to do so..The inside was gross,he had trouble with his spittle because he sprayed everything everytime he spoke...I would choose SunniBunni or even Einstein bagels instead. more

bad attitude=bad food 1/16/2010

terrible experience january 2010-cold delivery pie/ wrong order -45 minutes later than quoted by the manager(order taker)- full of excuses-called to check back twice-too busy -lied about the estimated service time- quality was awful-so we had to drive and return the pie-absolutely do not recommend this restaurant-bad attitude of manager-excuses do not bring back guests!! The delivery guy was courteous-apologetic & appreciated his attitude!! more

Best Pizza in Sarasota 12/17/2005

Rico's has the best pizza in Sarasota. The crusts are thin, the tomato sauce full tasting but not too heavy. They give the pie a good covering of cheese but again not too over the top. If you love NY style pizza, can't find it and are wondering why you moved to Florida in the first place, Rico's will bring you home. Plus, they have big screen TV showing sports, the have a Beer and Wine license and usually have a few cute young waitresses roaming around the place, so enjoy! more
