Loved it!

Came here last night and lots of people were waiting. However, just like other reviews on Trip Advisor mentioned, we only waited about 15-20 minutes before we were seated. Service was great, food was really good. Bread and seasoning with oil was awesome! Can't wait to try other items on the... read more

Four of us went there for lunch and we all had the special, cheese ravioli. We all decided to get our ravioli covered with Alfredo Sauce instead of the red sauce. It was the worst Alfredo Sauce I had ever eaten. Absolutely no flavor. Alfredo is one of my very favorite sauces but this was so bad that none of... More

3 stars is a little harsh, as it wasn't bad. But they don't have 3.75 stars as a choice, and other people rated it 5, so I went on the low end out of fairness. Maybe we caught a bad night, I don't want to seem like I'm the type of spoiled rotten guy that rants and raves anytime something... More

Seemed to be very busy the night we went, but the service was still nice. The bathrooms were well-worn, but decent. Overall first impression was promising. The bread was really good, though we had to add our own olive oil to the spices. (Not sure if this is standard or not) We wanted to order a bottle of champagne, but... More

This place has become a standard for Florence. Downtown stays the same. That can be good and bad. Consistent. Owners a bit of a local ? Fun. Chunky red sauce that we try to dup at home.

Great lunch item, lots of smoked duck and sausage with a perfect pomodoro sauce and penne pasta. The dollop of creamy goat cheese just made the whole thing come together..... Yum!!!! Fresh bread and a "make your own" oil and herb dressing for the bread.

We were in town for one night and just happened to chose Ricatoni's for dinner. They were pretty crowded but we were seated quickly. They bring you a small loaf of bread in a paper bag and a plate of dry herbs for dipping. I am used to oil for dipping but this was different. It was tasty, we liked... More

Went there Saturday with mother and father in law in florence alabama. We didnt wait long for a table, got our orders taken quickly, food came out and it was wonderful. You get a little bread to begin with and some dipping herbs. I must say that the bread was really great with the herbs.
