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.

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.

This is by far my favorite Italian spot in the area. The bread, herbs, and olive oil at the beginning of your meal is worth the visit alone. I love getting the veal Parmesan. The ravioli is really good too.

Food was hot and very tasty, bread was soft and warm. The restraunt could use a little more AC. But the food was worth the heat.

This restaurant is just so-so in my opinion. The food is average at best. I do not care for the bread dipping sauce and have had better elsewhere. The main portions are fair to good. I do not like the atmosphere - is noisy and cramped with tables on top of each other. Booths are not large enough for 4... More

Ricatoni's came highly recommended by a friend at work and it did not disappoint. Prepare to fork out a quarter or two for the parking meters (which evidently are everywhere in downtown Florence) and you're ready to go. I & my wife were a little nervous about showing up in casual wear due to hearing through the grapevine that it... More

This is great Italian food with nice atmosphere. Waitress and staff very nice. This is a quant place in Downtown Florence that has been redone and you can walk place to place. Highly recommend.

People rave about the food here, but to me, it's average. I wouldn't steer clear, but i wouldn't necessarily choose this over something else?

The restaurant is in the downtown shopping area, but is very easy to get to. The restaurant is charming and eclectic! The Lasagna and Salad were fantastic! Very inexpensive as well! Strongly advise going here!
