I recently booked a late lunch here for a Sunday afternoon for 11 people. The staff shoved the whole party into one table and then was so incredibly rude when we asked to have more room. They acted like we were intruding on an invite only VIP space and that the place was about to fill up with people. The funniest thing was -- we were there for at least two hours and THE PLACE REMAINED EMPTY. So ridiculous.
Oh, and to top it off, the food was not even very good.

I ate here for lunch Saturday afternoon. The place looks a bit small, but it actually has a ""garden""-like area, which was really cute. I ordered the Linguine w/ White Clam Sauce & it was delicious. My cousin ordered the Penne alla Vodka & the pasta looked as if it were freshly made. She thoroughly enjoyed her meal as did I. The service was good & they did not rush us. I enjoyed my meal here & would definitely come back again.

Il Riccio is almost 8 years old but the food,service, and the spotless bathrooms looks like they just open...
the dining room is filled everynite with celebrity like mayor bloomberg, robert de niro, matt dillon and famous newscaster and trendsetter like eva von fustenberg.
the food reflect the fresh and lively charm of south of italy particulary Sorrento and bari, were the owners are from.
the wine list is well balance with particular attention to super tuscans.
i must try is the rear garden, i suggest early or late booking.

Dining at il riccio was the one of the best out-of-the room activities my wife and I had on our short Honeymoon in the Capital Town Of The World. We were lucky to found this restaurant close to our hotel. We did not have a lot of time to search around. But what we found was amazing. Nice, cozy, and romantic place with very friendly vibe. We got table on the second floor next to window. Great table. Waiter who took care of us was on the ball. Easy going and not pretentious. We left up to him to decide our diner and he made our evening. Everything he choose was perfect. Fist course, second, third...desert, wine...Just what we were looking for. People, they know pasta. Next trip to NY and we'll be there again.
p.s.ask for karmain the owner with pony tail........
Pros: Great food, Great service, Reasonable price

A friend recently recommended Il Riccio, and I really enjoyed it! The staff is very friendly. There is a wonderful wine list. The food is simply prepared with fresh foods-- very flavorful. I had stuffed Zucchini Flowers (a special) and Linguine with Clams. It is the closest to being in Amalfi without being there!

Every meal has a flare all its own.
The menu becomes unnecessary after the daily specials are read. Prepared with care and courtesy Il Riccio is a true find. The wine list and waiter reccomendations have never steered me wrong. The welcoming atmosphere is a NY rarity and the garden is not to be missed!

This is just one of the best restaurants in the city. I can't believe that I have lived here so long and just discovered it recently. The variety of food is wonderful but even better is its taste. Its quiet, romantic and the perfect place to sit back with a glass a wine and enjoy.
