Great Dinner with Friends

Four of us enjoyed a dinner here on a Friday evening. The seasonal choices included a grilled peach salad which was very good. The wood fired pizza was nicely done and the crust was just right. Note if you order the garlic bread it is prepared similar to a pizza, with the sauce on the side. The... read more

Ricciuti's is a quaint neighborhood restaurant in Olney. It is very charming with a nice ambiance for couples or families and they offer excellent service. The food quality was very good. The lasagna sauce was fresh and tasty and the calamari and oyster appetizers were good too. However, the taste of some items (burger, mac & cheese, and penne bolognaise)... More

It's been our local favorite for years. If you want fast service and processed food, don't go there. If you want quality, freshness and understand that it will require more time, this is the place.

Ricciuti's is a charming little space with excellent food and service. The bar is small and quaint. It's a good space for friends or solo reading a book. Rocciuti's is all about local eating a sources it's ingredients with local farms when possible. The menu is limited but always inventive. The wood-fired pizzas are excellent with thin crusts. A great... More

Ricciutis is a continental/Italian style cuisine family owned and run restaurant which only uses locally sourced produce, including meats while still serving up gourmet food. Most of its fresh produce is organic and the combinations of texture and taste make for some excellent, delicious, and healthy dishes. The restaurant is housed in an historic home which provides 4-5 different eating... More

In my quest to find great pizza we did takeout from this restaurant. I was excited to have wood fired pizza and ordered the finito pizza. It had garlic, onions, peppers, pepper I etc on it. I didn't taste the garlic (perhaps they forgot) but the onion was very prominent. The sauce was good and the crust was fine but... More

The bartender woman was incredibly rude to us. She rolled her eyes every time we talked to her - totally annoyed to have to deal with us. We will never go back. We used to go there all the time because we enjoyed the cuisine, but hiring someone like that to take over the bar shows terrible management.

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.
