Excellent local restaurant

Our server, Oscar, was outstanding! The bruschetta was excellent, but more like an entrée or an appy for 3 people! I highly recommend this downtown restaurant. Great ambience.

Dinner and service always excellent. Got us in and out quickly. We were going to a theater show near by.

We love there shrimp and Scallop almondine, and there Stuffed Cannaloni. Great Salads. And really good desserts. Love this Restaurant.

Uricchio's is arguably the best Italian food in Bakersfield, others may be equal but none are better. Part of the charm is that it has been around forever, and owned by the same family, so it has a family feeling. Not real fancy, but we always enjoy going there, with this last trip for my birthday. The food is very... More

The staff gave us a great table and were quite accommodation for a Saturday night. They do have a semi-decent wine list and I saw a nice bar on the way to the Ladies Room. By the way-be prepared to be quizzed. It's a walk down a hall, turn, keep going, go OUTSIDE to get there. Plenty of signs guide... More

Friendly, attentive service. Food was basic Italian fare with nothing interesting or imaginative. Decor looks like it would be a candidate for the restaurant overhaul television show. Very old and out dated plus looks like it needs a good scrubbing. It could be so nice with some investment and elbow grease. Likely won't return but not because it was horrible,... More

I've never had a bad meal in this restaurant. I had the sand dabs and my wife the manicotti, and both were over the top great. Parking can be a little tough if you don't want the elevated lot across the street, but it's worth it. In the past I've had the New York steak and it may be one... More

In town visiting family, we ate at this spot. The drinks were good, and the sand dabs, coming from the east coast where they aren't on the menu, were delicious. A real treat. I tasted the pasta pesto and it was yummy. The chicken piccata got rave reviews.

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 surrounded by tables crowded with up to... 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
