Fine New York Italian in the Heart of Kern County

No, not the sort of trattoria you'll find in Rome's Trastevere. But it has the kind of generous, basic Italian American cooking you might discover on Manhattan's Second Avenue if you got lucky. It's big and generally crowded, but we didn't have to wait for a table at 7 pm Thursday. We were... read more

Didn't expect much in Bakersfield because the ecommendations from Hotel we were staying at didn't really seem great. Found Uricchio's Trattoria on Yelp and reviews were good so we thought we would give it a try. It was very good. The downtown location seemed great and it really felt comfortable. Loved the house Chianti and the dinner salad according to... More

I have been here a few times over the years and have never thought much of the food. People in Bakersfield love this place, but I really don't know why. The food seems as if has been frozen, is overly salty (and I like my salt) and just looks sloppy on the plate. If you have ever had good Italian... More

Great Service; perfect for a business lunch. Make sure you try the Basil Bread and Ravioli. Small space and nice outdoor seating area. Parking is a little rough.

Uricchio's was recommended by a friend and it was a great choice for dinner. The Lasagna I selected was a very large serving that was amazing. Had to leave some on the plate because it was too much for one person to eat. The garlic bread was amazing, so make sure and request.

Great menu selection. Kind of pricey but worth it. The house salad is beyond most you would find in any other restaurant. I took a friend from out of state here and she said the lasagna was the best she'd ever eaten. Great lunch sandwiches and you can get in and out in an hour.

It amazed us but the chicken curry was as good as it gets in the US. We didn't expect to see it on the menu but it is very good. It is very similar to the Japanese curry we enjoyed when we lived in Japan. The pasta looked good but we didn't get a chance to try it.

We were passing through Bakersfield looking for a restaurant to celebrate a birthday and made the right choice. Great Italian food. We had the meatballs and Ravioli Al Forno. The also accommodated my son's food allergies. Service was excellent.

Great meatballs. Quaint corner restaurant downtown Bakersfield. Parking can be tough but there is garage parking across the street. Depending when you go you may need a reservation. Prices are medium to high. Service was good. Start your meal with the meatballs. I had the fettuccine excellent....ended taking part home. Full bar
