Three of us had dinner using a groupon. Very disappointed. Sauce or Marinara was not good. Chicken in the chicken parm was rubbery. The prosciutto in the special was large and chunky and not sautéed the way most Italian restaurants prepared it.

Ricks is a wonderful place with amazing Italian food. I have been here a few times and the food is to die for. The place is pretty cramped and noisy, and I have never gotten the chance to sit outside, but I look forward to some say sitting on their patio and enjoying the food in the fresh air!

I've given this place a couple of chances. The first time i was ill due to likely a clam.. I forgave them and tried again. I even used groupon! No luck. The food was unremarkable. Saving grace: my fiancee likes the food and enjoys it. So it may be just me...

Rick's is off the beaten path in Lambertville, NJ. It is a small Italian restaurant a couple of blocks off Bridge Street. It is very small - 8 tables in the main room, which is rustic with wood paneling. The food is the draw. They have excellent Italian dishes. The seafood is worth having. Pasta dishes are in the mid...

We visited on a Monday night- plenty of metered parking and a lot close by. BYOB. Seems like a lot of local people. We had a Caesar salad, pizza and seafood over linguine. Board specials. Great bread, attentive service. Row house vibe, like sitting in Mama's dining room. Highly recommended

This is a little whole in the wall diner on Main St. It is very local and no frills, but the waitresses were nice and the egg and bacon sandwich on ciabatta bread was very good and was all I needed to start my day. The coffe was pretty good too.
