Amazing! A must see in Montevideo!

I visited Ricci with my husband in June/2013. Chef Fernando received us and the staff was very happy and polite. I had lamb and my husband had rabbit. Oh my God....it was amazing! So amazing that we returned another time, to try other recipes from Ricci. The place used to be some sort of small... read more

charming corner house in a quiet street in P. Carretas. The lady who greeted us and took care of the tables is really wonderful... and most of all, the food is delicious. Honestly, I didn't care for the parrillas places. Ricci was a wonderful lunch experience. Also nice for dinner.

Ricci is located in an historic house in the exclusive neighborhood of Punta Carretas. The food was up to scratch, and the staff went the extra mile, because it was our wedding anniversary. Upscale all along.

Nice area, good lay-out and good service together with good pizzas make this a winner. Like all restaurants in Uruguay, the wine is over priced.

We went there last night to have dinner. We first wondered why there were just 2 tables. Later on we realized what was going on. The resturant has gone deeply down, serving not only old hard as rock bread, but also old desserts that almost smelled rotten! My tarte tatin was at least 1 week old, impossible to eat, I... More

a friend of ours recommended the spot, it is very small, an old house that was renovated, as are most of the restaurants in montevideo, very clean, good service, excellent food, both quality and quantity, small menu, very short wine list, but good quality. good for an intimate,quiet dinner, also have special prices/menu for lunch during weekdays. very nice desserts....

The restaurant is very well furnished and the cave is an extra that you cannot miss.

Judging by everyone else on here we had a bad night....sort of. The appetizers were to die for. Totally mouth watering. So it looked like a fantastic night. But then the actual meal was wretched. Awful tasting risotto and pasta (how does anyone screw up pasta?). Understand that we NEVER slam a restaurant. We're not picky at all. Our level... More
