Like being in Italy! I wish I had made notes right after I ate here but alas I did not so I can't write about specific dishes. I would happily return here. Our party of two sampled several appetizers and pastas, everything was delicious, beautifully presented and served by a friendly waiter (with Italian accent). Highly recommended.

This is my favorite small, quaint restaurant in Chicago. Authentic Italian Food! No fancy sauces just wonderfully fresh, food that are old family recipes. I also think it is the best wait service I have ever had. The waiters are professional and not intrusive. They don't make a big deal out of their wonderful menu. The arugula salad with shaved...

Bottom Line: Very good food at reasonable prices in a lively and fun environment. Perfect for a date nice or nice celebration. Food: Pretty large menu with most of your Italian favorites. Pastas were cooked to a perfect al dente. Sauces were also well done. The Rigatoni Buttera was excellent. Tuna Tartare was also good, but served a bit on... More

On a recent trip to Chicago, we dined at Riccardo Trattoria. It is a small, intimate restaurant in Lincoln Park. Most of the patrons were obviously regulars. In fact, Riccardo himself was dining with a group of family members and was very engaging when we spoke with him. The menu is extensive and excellent. The wine list, though small, has... More

We took Uber over to Lincoln Park area for pizza at Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder. However, upon arrival to a large crowd waiting out front, we were told it was at least a 2 hour wait. We didn't want pizza that badly!!! So, checked Trip Advisor & Yelp for other nearby restaurants & chose to try Riccardo's Tratorria. We... More

Riccardo never lets us down with magnificent food, service and ambiance! We just love dining at this elegant Trattoria. Last evening, Riccardo, once again, adorned us with his delicious food when he chose a selection of his best dishes for us to try. From the bruschetta to the lobster ravioli to the veal milanese...the flavors were divine. The wait staff... More

The reviews are spot on. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. We shared the octopus for our appetizer at our waiter's suggestion. (By the way, he was from Milan and he even tried to teach us a few Italian words!) I had the Bronzino and my wife... More

This is the best Italian food I have ever had. The waiters are attentive and helpful in recommending dishes, and the kitchen will make a dish for you at your request if it is not available on the menu. A+++
