Very good food, particular dishes with special combinations, very good selection of wines and good service but they are pretty much expensive from my point of view. They are open at lunch time during the week.

We had dinner here on a busy weekend so it was fortunate we had a reservation. It's a good idea to walk or get a cab as there is virtually nowhere to park near this restaurant. It's tucked away down a side alley so ask for directions if you have not been here before. The medieval building has been thoughtfully... More

Luckily we had a reservation, because it was very busy, especially for a wednesday! We started off with a homemade pasta with truffle and parmezan, which was absolutely lovely. As a main two of us had steak and the other two had veal cheeks. All food was very well prepared and the products used where of high quality. We made... More

The food is absoluterly high quality. Refined dishes with an original touch. There are a lot of good wines to combine with meal. The location is special: traditional but elegantly urbane. The service is ready and courteous.

In it's own way this was a perfect meal. For 80 euros two of us had a three course lunch with a truly outstanding bottle of Frascati (18 euros). There is obviously a very talented cook here and delightful waiting staff. The raw porcini starter with lemon and Parmesan was worth three times the price and the homemade pasta mains... More

To say the food at Zi Rico's is very good would be a gross understatement. It was, in fact, one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had (and we have eaten in some excellent places around the world). Located in a small alley right off of the main piazza, the interior is tastefully and elegantly decorated... More
