Have been going to this restaurant since I was a kid. When I lived out of state, and would come in to visit family, I always request to have one meal here. The fried zucchini is the best. And the filet is reasonably priced and very tasty.

Ricardos has been a family tradition for birthdays in our family for probably around 50 years. All of my family have since moved from Erie but we still have a reason to go back since my Husband has family there. I have eaten in tons of different restaurants but no filet mignon compares to that of Ricardos. It is FABULOUS... More

This was my first visit to Ricardo's. One of my friends suggested it for her birthday celebration. It was really good! I enjoyed the food, the prompt service, and a large quantity of good eats. We were lucky enough to have had the owners' daughter and she was great to us. I recommend Ricardo's and I will definitely return.

The thing about this situation is that it was an innocent mistake in the tip. My wife and I were having dinner with another couple. My daughter and her friend were home. They wanted us to bring them something home. So we asked the waitress to bring us their food when we were done. The waitress is the owners daughter.... More

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
