In June of 2014 I wrote a review stating that the food quality had gone down since we first visited Ricatonis a few years earlier and that I had high hopes that the restaurant would get back on track of delivering their earlier excellent food. Unfortunately, my husband and I again visited Ricatonis this past month and things have gotten... More

had the lunch portion of lasagna, very good and tasty! Wish we had ordered the dinner portion instead of the lunch sized portion. Pizza was freshly made but just wasn't cooked long enough. Most places I've eaten cook their pizza until the cheese is a golden brown, this cheese was barely melted. The meat portions were plentiful but you needed... More

The food is amazing, always! It's hard to pass on the lasagna and it's worth the extra $2 splurge to get the dinner portion which gives you twice as much...who can think about conserving calories at this place??? Bread and dipping herbs are fresh and tasty. Sweet tea is perfect! Haven't yet tried the desserts because I'm always too full... More

This is a place that the locals recommend and has been around for years. Their prices are reasonable. The service is friendly, and the food is good. They have a good selection of craft beer on tap, too.

Love the authentic Italian food & their bread is soooo good!! Everything is seasoned perfectly. We've eaten here several times when we visit family in Florence & I always leave thinking 'I can't wait to come back!' We met with the owner on our last visit & got to tell him how much we love it there. He has such... More

They have the best Marsala dishes and their pasta is also great and very tasty. They provide a much better deal than Olive Garden and the pasta are just as good. They also have a great Pork Chop selection and their Chicken Tender appetizer is worth ordering as an entree itself. If you visit Florence this is one of the... More

The meal started off great. It began with the house baked Italian bread, spices and olive oil for dipping. Things ran a little bit off normal with my main course. I had the grilled chicken topped with goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. It was also served with steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes. The food all had an excellent taste, but... More

Good Italian restaurant in the downtown Florence district. Bread with olive oil and herbs to dip the break in, very yummy. Restaurant worth going to if you're also just looking for desserts. Staff courteous and friendly. Pasta was also good. Wine pretty decent as well.
