No nuts) Server(austin) did not return until entrees served & when I asked about the nuts he asked if I wanted him to bring a me a few, this is... read more

Soiled carpets and an uninspired menu characterized this long term Olney eatery on our last visit. Service was fine but the items in offer appeared a little behind the times. The house is handsome nonetheless and could be much more.

This is a cute old house in Olney. Small cozy (read cramped) rooms. The dishes seemed creative but we were disappionted. The services was prompt but not warm. My Chardonnay was poor quality but the only one available by the glass. My mom's vodka tonic was tall and weak. We ordered the cheese plate and it was pretty good. The... More

Ricciuti's symbolizes everything I love about food. With our fast place, genericized, eat on the go lifestyle, Ricciuti's is a throwback to things that I love. Seasonal dishes (the pheasant is the best I have ever had), local ingredients, wood oven, part of the slow food movement…it’s all wonderful. I’ve never had a bad meal at Ricciuti's.

Riccuti's has been so reliable for many years as a place where we know everything is fresh, food is great, staff is warm and friendly, and the bar is really good. The menu changes regularly based on what is available and James keeps things fresh with new treatments of old favorites. If you have not had a chance to enjoy... More

This restaurant, located in an historic inn in downtown Olney, rarely disappoints. They've updated their menu to feature locally-grown produce and meats. The atmosphere is cozy and yet modern and the service is always prompt and aiming-to-please. My favorite entree is the savory macaroni and cheese with dried tomatoes and bits of bacon -- YUM! But don't ignore the calzones,... More

The food and atmosphere has just continued to improve over time. Salads, chicken saltimbocca and pizza are all favorites.

We always love this restaurant and we had a great time dining here this evening. There were eight adults in our party and it's always hard to please everyone in the group when we go out, but at Ricuitti's everyone loved what they ordered. We started with some fun mixed drinks (and a really good chocolate beer our server recommended).... More

Love the atmosphere here. The food is very good, albeit a little expensive. This is one of the top places in Olney and highly recommended for a good meal. Pizza is great, but the menu is varied, but relatively small.

My wife and I regularly dine at Riccuiti's and sometimes we are joined by our sons and their families. I am a huge fan of their lasagna. It is meatless, but it is very tasty and filling. My youngest son enjoys their calzones and his wife loves the macaroni. Their pizza is very good as well. The chocolate pizza makes... More
