Dined here for lunch. Nice clean restaurant. Service was exceptional with nice greeting, attentive but not over-bearing, and helpful waitstaff. My husband and I shared an excellent beet salad. It was decent size for both and the combination of flavors was terrific. We both ordered fresh fish of the day entrees and both were very good with small accompanying sides... More

We started off our holiday weekend by enjoying a delicious lunch here. We tried the Artichoke Risotto as an appetizer and it was fabulous. We both tried fish entrees. My husband got the trout which was amazing. I tried the branzino entree special. I enjoyed it but the trout was better. We had very good service and we were seated... More

We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel and we're not disappointed. It was our first night in DC and a great start to the holiday. We ate outside and the service and food were excellent. Quite expensive but we felt the whole experience was well worth the cost and definitely recommend.

We used a Groupon deal so we could get introduced to the restaurant. We would not return here as the food was mediocre at best. I ordered Branzino and it barely resembled what I am used to getting when I order this fish. The broccoli and potatoes had obviously been sitting on the plate for quite a while as they... More

Meh. But for the Groupon deal, we never would have set foot here. To read the history of the place on their website, you would think they were the leading restaurant in the country in Tuscan cuisine. Not quite. Once we showed our waiter the Groupon deal, he took my cellphone with him to validate the deal. For ten minutes.... More

I've read some of the other reviews which note "bad service" and "bad food" but I have been here about 7-8 times over the past year and a half, both lunch and dinner (always with Groupon...its such a great deal!), on various days of the week, and I have never experienced these problems. The staff has always been gracious and... More

We were advised by a waiter to order today's specialities: beef and fish. Both are very bad. Too fishy and salty. Even vanilla ice cream tasted is unacceptably too sweet. When the bill came, we were shocked. It was 437 US dollars for 3 persons. Only one of us ordered a glass of white wine. Everyone was given two spoons... More

i Ricchi is great for a regular "date night" or a special occasion. It's very close to Dupont Circle and has seasonal outdoor seating (spring, summer, and fall). The food is generally very good, although the service can be rather slow and inconsistent. All in all, it's a good place to dine if you've never tried it.

I Ricchi has become one of my new fave places to go to. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the service is very good and the food is delicious! A wonderful place for a special occasion or a quiet special week night dinner. Go!

very expensive, tiny portions, very bad tasting foods, rude service. Not even fit for dogs. I know foods and I have eaten at the Tower Club, Tysons corner. Now that's is a real upscale restaurant and less expensive than this "I Cheating" piece of trash restaurant
