    From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with a sincere "thank you for coming". We were early so we sat at the bar. The Mixologist was pleasant and efficient. Our table was ready on time and was set correctly. The waiter knew the menu and specials. The food was served hot, the plates were thoughtful, and the food was presented in an appealing way. Everything was great. We would highly recommend this restaurant for small groups, family get togethers, or a date night.

    Not sure where to start, both the food and service were bad. We had the gnocchi with veal and chicken piccata. The piccata was bland with little to no taste. The veal in the gnocchi looked like stewing beef and had the consistency of it as well (chopped up into small piece and chewy). The server couldn’t have cared less about us. Never introduced himself and was a “what do you want” type of experience. At the end of the night we waited 15-20 mins with the table cleared for the check and he was no where insight. When he came back to drop off the bill for me to sign he didn’t say a single word. Seemed like the servers and management (potentially owners?) cared more about having fun with the 24 year old girls celebrating a birthday then the experience of the rest of the customer. The only positive I could point to were the bus boys / guys filling water. They were very attentive and friendly. Maybe management should give them a shot at being servers. 1/10

    Loud, North End ambiance, complete with traditional Boston accents. Great for social night out, less appropriate for business or kids (this was a Saturday night). At first the swordfish was uncooked but this was quickly corrected and we received an excellent complimentary dessert.

    Took our college grandson and his roommate to dinner while we were in Boston for the weekend. We were seated upstairs with a 5:30 pm reservation. Room was empty when we were seated. By the time we left, the place was mobbed and loud. The fact we had a speaker directly above us blaring music made conversation difficult. Food was very good. We ordered bruschetta and fried mozzarella for starters. Lobster ravioli, salmon, pollo Exquisito and chicken penne and broccoli for dinner. Giving 4 stars due to noise and the 30 minute wait to get the bill. Skipped dessert in favor of Mike’s Pastry.

    Outstanding meal, From start to finish we had a wonderful experience and I can see why they get so any stars. We started with the meatballs stuffed with mozzarella and ricotta which were hot and delicious. I had the Gamberi Madeira Alla Riccardo and my husband had the special Veal Braccioletini which also was delicious. We will definitely recommend Riccardo’s and will be back!

    I had the lobster ravioli with scamp sauce that was to die for..the ceasar salad and meatballs were excellent. .my husband ordered the steak med well. and we had to send back twice it never came out even medium, they did take it off the bill and gave us a free round of drinks which was very nice, we go here all the time and will continue to do so, but probably not order the steak and just stick with the italian fare.

    Shrimp Limoncello was delicious. I had the swordfish puttanesca and it was excellent - I was a little unsure because I am not a big olive fan but it was DELICIOUS! My husband had the seafood fra diavolo and it came with so much seafood and he said it was delicious. We split the tiramisu for dessert and, again, it was delicious! Meals were not cheap but well worth the price and in tune to what you pay in the area. Will definitely go back. Staff and owners were very laid back and friendly.

    We were visiting from out-of-town, and we were given a recommendation for Riccardo’s. We enjoyed our meal and the attentive and pleasant service throughout our visit. Tom was a great waiter and gave us great recommendations and his assistant kept our table clean and supported with water, bread, etc. This was a fabulous Italian North end spot!
