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

Finding authentic Italian food in Oahu is a very difficult proposition, but you need look no further than Ricado's. Ricado's has an excellent menu, and they will even accommodate special requests. The prices are extremely reasonable, and the food quality is excellent. The service is outstanding, and my family and I have never been disappointed at Ricado's.

I visited this establishment with a friend based on others' reviews and curiosity. I'm glad I did. It's a little larger inside than one would suspect from the outside appearance. There seems to be two sections inside, one being more dimly lit than the other, which is fine for a more private feel. This was a lunch visit, and it... More

We love going to Ricado's! We love the food and the prices are good. I love the Caesar salad and the pasta with asparagus, prosciutto & chicken. My husband likes the fettuccine with chicken and tiramisu. The service is good as well.
