Love Ricatonis!

Have to visit Ricatonis whenever I am in Florence. Went on Sunday, after church. Easy to find a parking space, and the restaurant was not crowded.

On our recent visit to Rigatoni's our dishes included the lasagna and Tagliarini Piace Pellerossa and both were excellent. The service was very good, too. Last review I mentioned the presentation could have been a little better, but they weren't as busy this time and so everything was nice and neat. We'll be back!

If you want Italian in Florence, this is the place to go. Great quality food with fresh ingredients. Good selection of craft beer as well.

The food is...just ok. Nothing special. The wait staff just stare and talk about you. when 3 girls turn around and stare at you and turn around and laugh...everyone knows what you are doing. It's a snobby place. Even ricotonis commercials are nothing but snobby name dropping. Pick somewhere else!!

I stopped in downtown Florence briefly for dinner on my way to a show. I remember my coworkers saying they loved this restaurant and Rosie's Mexican while in the Shoals area so I felt comfortable choosing one of those for my one night in the area. The ravioli was great with a sauce that was orangish like a vodka sauce.... More

This restaurant is a family favorite--brick oven pizzas, salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes. Nice place for casual birthday celebrations.

Ricatoni's is legendary when it comes to Italian cuisine. We always love to eat here when we are visiting The Shoals. Stroll Downtown Florence & the stop in for the meal. Their bread & dip is the best!

Many people travel hours to eat at this peculiar restaurant. It is situated in the historic downtown Florence area. I know I travel 2 hours in hopes to eat here on occasion. The food is rich, flavorful, and never disappoints. The atmosphere is busy and can be loud at times, but that doesn't take away from the experience. If you... More

Ricatonis is one of my favorite restaurants in Florence! Their bread, served hot in a brown paper bag, along with olive oil and herbs as a dip, is fabulous! I also love their pizza, a thin, crispy version with your choice of fresh toppings. The old downtown restored building is fun and casual with a college town atmosphere.
