We were not impressed with our meals at Ricardo's. The inside is much nicer than before but the food was average at best. The fried zucchini given when we ordered was very good... May not go back

If you want the best tasting filet mignon at the best price this is your restaurant, I also love their deep fried zucchini that is complimentary. Service is great. Love this local Erie restaurant

We went here for lunch. it was a busy spot with a couple of large groups having Christmas parties. The wait staff was somewhat grumpy and seemed irritated there were so many people there! And they were very busy. Upon finishing our meal we were presented with the check and told to pay the cashier and off she went. We... More

Returned to Ricardo's after many years and was not disappointed. The filet was delicious and they have the best fried zucchini. My daughter who is very picky loved the rigatoni that is served with every meal and ate her spaghetti and meatball (this happens rarely!). Good service too. We will definitely return soon.

This restaurant was recommended to us a nice steak and pasta dining experience. What a mistake. The pasta was swimming in water, veal parm was raw in the center, the medium well steak was only shown a candle. Our waitress was very friendly but when our main entree arrived just shortly after our salad, my dining companion asked if she... More

Most of the reviews I'm reading are favorable and this place was recommended to us based on the filet. I can't help but think those who love this place are just plain nuts! First of all, it is not a dining experience. The filet was horrible. It was marinated and the texture of hamburger. Nothing was hot and the fried... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed it. The sausage sandwich was unique, flavorful, and more than enough food. The steak salad was also an excellent choice.

The service at Ricardo's was excellent and so was the food. I had the 8 ounce filet and my husband had the steak and shrimp special. We ordered garlic bread and the french fried zucchini and took half of it home. The marinara sauce is a burst of flavor, and the steaks were superb. We learned that Ricardo's had a... More

This is a classy place to eat, the food is usually excellent although I did get a bad piece of meat once. I have eaten at this restaurant most of my life and I love to treat myself to their steaks once in awhile!
