One of our favorites! Love the homemade pasta and the calamari. Salmon and tuna are yummy. The focaccia bread and homemade terramisu is divine!

We adore Both Ricardo restaurants. This Enoteca location has the bonus of a very charming patio area. We always enjoy their well priced wine list and delicious food. We came recently with our baby daughter and they went out of their way to accommodate.

I'm typically a snob when it comes to Italian food, so know that this place is good. Prices are fair and portions are generous (though not over-the-top). I got the gnocchi with shrimp and creamy pesto and they did not skimp on the shrimp - also the sauce was nice and light, gnocchi cooked perfectly.

We found the locsl ambiance well worth the drive as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. The menu was broad. Wine list extensive. Price was modest for a restaurant of such reputation. The wait staff wss freindly and helpful. The atmosphere of a local venue was inviting and enjoyable. Service was excellent as there was no wait time. Preparation, presentation and taste of menu items selected wsd excellent by the Chef and staff. The entire experience was excellent and highly recommended for out of towners seeking an alternative to the cookie cutter approach to fine dining and locals are fortunate to have such a fine venue readily available to enjoy.

As usual, the food and service was great. My only issue is the wine I ordered was slightly "corked" and should have been sent back. Not wanting to be difficult, we just drank it. Next time though, I'd send back a "corked" wine. After many meals there, this was the only bad experience I've ever had there.

For years one our favorite restaurants and it just fell short this evening. Very depressing since we have had wonderful meals there many times. Will give it another try- maybe just an off night. Salad overdressed, pizza thick, pasta congealed. Just disappointing!!!
