Great atmosphere, super yummy food, friendly people!

Our waitress Jenn was a sweetie and made us feel so welcome. She gave us recommendations from the menu and... read more

We visited Ricatonis on the recommendation of a friend during our recent visit to Florence. The food, service, and prices were all very good. Located in the downtown area, there was plenty of parking along the street. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very good and we were promptly seated. The food was very good and our server was very... More

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. Seated right away, drinks brought quickly, along with the bread, which is reason alone to dine here! I had Tagliarini Piace Pellerossa, and added grilled chicken. Others in my party had grilled chicken salad,... More

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!
