Get there early, it's a very small place and quickly gets crowded and the service then slows down. Not good for more than 4 people in a party. BYOB. Salads and red or white mussels are very good. I love the scallops over mashed potatoes and the seafood medley over pasta is terrific. My wife and I have had many... More

We went there last weekend for dinner for 4 with friends last weekend at 8pm Saturday night. We had great time and food was spot on - very tasty. I had lobster fra diavlo - it might have been a special or off menu. My wife had chicken parmigiana. My friends wife had seafood medley and he had salmon. All... More

My wife and I had dinner at Rick's this past Saturday night. We live in area and have been there couple times a year. She had chicken parmigiana and I had fish. Service was good, atmosphere great and tartufo dessert spot on. Entrees were hot but devoid of any flavor or taste. Like it was cooked without spices or salt.... More

Rick's is a run-of-the-mill red sauce Italian restaurant with not a shred of imagination. Food preparation was fine, service was warm and the wood paneling made me nostalgic for my family's 1950s living room, but unless predictable is at the top of one's list in choosing a restaurant I'd skip it.

Being new to area tried this restaurant - tiny interior very crowded tables. Busy and understaffed. I ordered the eggplant parm which was pretty good but not the best- when our bill came the price on bill was higher than advertised price which I addressed, she was very defensive that the marker board was in error. I pointed out that... More

Rick's has been around a long time and has gone through several owners. Nothing decor wise has changed since the 1950's but the once excellent high quality food is a distant memory. What we have now is average southern Italian fare with ridicules prices. Nothing exciting, nothing special and a Chef who takes few chances. That wouldn't bother me except... More

The eatery is small. The 1st floor of a row home has been converted into a restaurant. Seating is tight. We ordered off of the chalkboard/specials of the day. I had a chopped salad. If you like Miracle Whip, you'll luv this salad. If you are like me & like Hellmann's, you won't like this salad. My hubby had the... More

This is one of our regular places that we have enjoyed every few months for the last few years. Best food, best service! The specials are always interesting and eclectic. You will not be disappointed. Small and cozy where everyone is friendly!

This past July we were visiting friends in Lambertville. Decided on Rick's. The place is small but very friendly service. The food was great. Immediately they served the bread and white bean dip, it was delicious. The specials of the day were written on a big chalkboard on the wall. The servings were big. It tasted home made! Felt like...
