Called here for a coffee while in the area. After looking at the menu decided to order a pizza. We had the diablo. Freshly made to order, and was delicious. Real Italian pizza, not your American pizza. Would call here again.

Visited Ricci's while on holiday in June. Really friendly people. Nothing too much trouble and the food was excellent. The best Garlic bread we have had and a lovely PIzza. Would definitely go again. Excellent value for money

Lovely food and attentive service, we had a carbonara and a marinara and both were very good. Unless you have a very big appetite the smaller portion is more than enough food. I just wish I could have had a glass of wine with my...More

I feel sorry for the lovely old couple that run the place, I am sure the have the best intentions but the food at this place is shockingly bad. I had a pasta Bolognese and the pasta was overcooked and almost mushy. They clearly have...More

Came for the second time to meet a friend for lunch. Most people would choose a pub British meal in the peaks, that would leave you missing out! This Home cooked Italian food is amazing in quality and flavour and the service backs it up!...More
