Success! Thanks for posting your review of Riccardo's Ristorante. You’ve done the world some good today.

Good wine, poor food

we went here as guests of my parents. The courtyard was lovely, especially on a late summer night. The courtyard filled fast, and our service slowed waaaayyyy down. We had 'leisurely dining"" experiences before, but this was ridiculous. It would have been OK if the food was worth the wait, but it wasn't. The ""lemon butter sauce"" on my veal was cooled and thickened. My husband's food was cold. We had to flag our wai... view more

Excellent dinner

We celebrated our anniversary here last night. It had been a couple years since we were here, despite it only being 1/2 mile from our home. It's so easy to bypass the long established places for the new hot spots.\r \r We were greeeted and seated by Riccardo, and when he found out it was our anniversary he brought us two complimentary glasses of Prossecco. We had appetizers of panzanella (bread salad) and seared... view more

Great wine, so-so food

We have tried Riccardo's four or five times over the last year and the experience has been mixed. Given that dinner for two with wine is generally over $100 (and can even approach that for dinner for one with two glasses of nice wine and a full course), it is not a place we will continue to frequent despite the fact the place is very convenient to us and we were really trying to like it.\r \r On the plus side, the ... view more

Excellent dining experience

Sure it's spendy however one must do the homework ahead of time and find out if it's in the budget.\r \r That said, the meal we had was well above average. My Double Cut Pork Chop with potatoes, smothered in a Bernaise type sauce was enough for two people, literally a mountain.\r \r My companion's Penne was hefty and to the contrary she did end up demolishing all of it.\r \r The tiramisu was perhaps the fines... view more

2 excellent visits in 2 years

From the wine list through home-made pasta and all the way to desert, Ricardo's food and service were great. I will return and recommend it to others. It is one of the few places with a comfortable ambience that is good for a romantic evening or for a business lunch. 5-stars for sure.

Best Veal In Portland

I've been dining here for the last 18 years or so, once or twice a year. The first time I went in my wife was out of town so I was alone with my two young daughters (3 and 5 yrs old) and the owner (his son manages it now) sat down with us and entertained the girls and complimented them on their table manners. At that point I was pretty much sold on the place. Then the food came, the girls had pasta dishes that wer... view more

Closest thing I've found to dining in Italy.

Authentic, well prepared Italian food. Best lasagna I've found outside Italy. Well thought out and researched wine list - priced closer to retail than most restaurants (Retail shop across the parking lot). Knowledgeable wait staff. I'm there 2-3 times per year over many years. More often to the wine and espresso shops.\r I think someone is planting negative reviews because I this ristorante would not be so suc... view more

Don't sit inside

We love Riccardo's and have gone there for special occasions for several years. Today was a special occasion. We were sorely disappointed by the service. Maybe the staff didn't show up, but no one tried to remedy an irregular situation. We had never learned that sitting inside was a no no. No service. No heat. No water. No dessert. As usual the lasagne was mouth watering, but wilted today as well as the salad. ... view more

Inconsistent, but great menu and wine list

We used to go to Riccardo's at least 2 times a month. Summers are wonderful out on the patio with a great bottle of wine and their innovative Italian (with PNW fresh ingredients) dishes.\r *\r However, we've had some very unsettling experiences there. It's either great (and it should be for two people you can expect to spend $200 minimum for 1 good bottle of wine, appetizer, 2 entrees, 1 dessert) or it can suffer... view more

Very Disappointed

As a former server I have plenty of insight into the ins and outs of waiting tables. I also am quite forgiving as I understand when servers get busy and overwhelmed. With this in mind I couldn't bring myself to think of enough excuses as to why the service was as bad as it was when I dined here recently. At first the service was great - we were seated and greeted promptly and informed of the featured items. Our serve... view more
