So glad we chose Riccis instead of one of the overpriced "Bakewell" establishments. Gorgeous freshly cooked dishes at extremely reasonable prices & such a friendly welcome by all of the staff. Highly recommended.

My daughter and I were looking for a quiet, home cooked meal after a day at Chatsworth House. We received a warm welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our lasagne and bolognese on tagliatelle. The food was cooked from scratch and was completely delicious. The portion sizes...More
