I do not care too much for Italian Cuisine. I went to Ricado's begrudgingly with a friend. It was incredible! Small, clean, lenin table clothes, the works. All the pastas and dishes are handmade, fresh and delicious. The service is 5 star quality. The prices are unbelievable inexpensive. This I believe is one of the best kept secrets in Hawaii.

Had a business dinner here. Parking in this overcrowded mini mall is atrocious. Once inside, though we were treated to a quiet atmosphere. Felt good to be away from the Pearl Harbor smell, a mixture of pollution and sewer. The servers were very polite and accommodating. The food was delicious. I recommend the Chicken Saltimboca. Very complex flavors on many... More

Ricado's may possibly make the best Italian bread I've had in the islands. We went once. While enjoying the bread and waiting for our order to arrive, a cockroach decided to stroll across the table. It didn't appear to be afraid of a table full of people, which I considered a bad sign. We haven't gone back.

I lived here for 8 years. Then moved to Europe for 5. While in Germany, I ate Italian cuisine all over the place. Ricado's holds it's own with the best European Italian restaurants. The service is always good. I love the plantation tea. My favorite dishes are the fish with spinach and the shrimp and scallop scampi. They also have... More

Tried this place years ago and was not impressed. Tried it again about 3 weeks ago and nothing has changed. Atmosphere is stripmall-type restaurant, dimly lit to cover the stains on the old walls and ceiling. Staff this time was much better and very attentive. No wait, but parking can be a pain if on a weekend due to location,... More

I did not choose Ricado's restaurant as meeting a past enployer of my husband's for dinner who lives on the island and it was his choice (thought he had better taste). In a strip mall area which I would not have selected myself for seeing someone that I had not seen in many years to make any kind of impression!!... More

I lived on the island many years ago. I was a big fan from the very first time I stepped foot in the place; the aroma coming from the kitchen was wonderful. It is not a fru-fru, fancy place. Rather, it is a restaurant that has a family bond with it's employees and great, homemade food. My husband still yearns... More

We went to Ricardo's Italian Restaurant following the reviews of Tripadvisor, but was very disappointed after eating there. Not much atmosphere since it was in a strip mall & very simple inside. Service was good, food good, but nothing to write home about. Would not go there again even though it was not terrible. It simply was not great or... More
