Off the main road, but worth the trip

We have heard about Rick's for years, and finally had the chance to go. We were seated right away at this small BYOB restaurant. The menu addition on the board were tempting. We started with salad - a Caesar and mixed field greens. they were very nice but large. This is something that should... read more

As always, the food at Rick's was delicious. I enjoyed the pasta pockets filled with pear and gorgonzola immensely. However, the wait to be seated was interminable and uncomfortable. The restaurant would not take reservations for 2 people when I called, but assured me the wait would not be a problem. When we arrived, we were told 15 minutes. One... More

Rick's has been one of our "go to" restaurants for over 20 years. If you are looking for solid Italian fare in Central New Jersey, it should be on your list as well. It gets crowded on weekends, so if you don't have a reservation, be prepared to wait. It is definitely worth whatever wait there is! We ate there... More

I don't know why reviewers are saying they do not take reservations because they certainly do. Several people walked in and mentioned they had reservations including our party of four. They had tables with menus on them for people who had reservations. I had the seafood over pasta dinner. I asked for extra sauce and ate every bite. When I... More

On a side street in Lambertville is a small locally owned restaurant that serves the best and reasonably prices food around. Located in an old row home you feel like you are in someone's home. Seating is tight but the atmosphere is delightful. Bring your own wine and check out the specials on the large slate hanging on the wall... More

This is my second review of Rick's. Knowing that Saturday night is a busy night for restaurants in Lambertville I made reservations two weeks in advance. The restaurants are small and finding a parking space can be very frustrating. There is metered parking until 9pm so bring plenty of quarters. Our reservation was for 7:15pm and as expected the place... More

The chicken in my chicken parm was way over cooked :( but still tasty. Salad was great. Beef braciola was really good.
