In 1987 he helped his cousin Roberto Ruggeri open the first Bice restaurant in New York City. Since then, he has worked in the opening of many of the restaurants in the group. In 2002 Riccardo moved to Chicago with his wife Veronica to be the executive chef of Bice on Ontario.
Finally Riccardo and Veronica, also a chef, decided to open their own place and in 2006 called Riccardo Trattoria. Considered by many to be the top Italian restaurant in town, receiving the Bib Gourmand from Michelin in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Now, Riccardo and Veronica have opened Riccardo Enoteca, right across the street from Riccardo Trattoria on Clark.

- OolcaybNew York / Tri-State Area •2 reviews5.0Dined on Jan 2, 2023This is my second visit. I liked the well appointed room with tables situated far from each other that conversation is possible this is very RARE. The decor conveys harmony. Patrons were of all ages. No one was loud, yet all looked happy with their food and drinks. I came back with a guest last night. The fried calamari was exceptional. The shaved vegetable salad which they prepared a cheese-and cream free version for us was very refreshing as is. Fish tacos on corn tortillas were very good. Our server was attentive, friendly, not overbearing or condescending. The price with a glass of good red wine per person was reasonable for an exceptional dining experience. I'm afraid with good reviews the place may lose its charming laid back atmosphere food may decline in quality or servers may lose their enthusiasm. I hope none happens.More infoSummer House - ChicagoPrice: Moderate• American• Lincoln Park•4.6
