“A Gem! And great drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I was staying at Aunt Bea's B&B down the street, so took the recommendation to come down to Little Ricky's with a grain of salt. I was told it was one of the best restaurants in the area. I was very pleasantly surprised, as it was a great mix of food, drinks, and people. Their flan was lovely. The pork was more than I could eat and very tasty. I had the Lucy drink, which just hit the spot, plus a nice glass of wine. If I was going to be in the area for more days, I readily would have returned. The staff made me feel very comfortable as well.

“Pricey and Nothing Special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I ordered the pork dish to go. It was very disappointment. The portion of meat fine but there was less than a1/4 cup of rice with black beans and the vegtable medley. It cost more than $15.00. Perhaps the portions are better in the cafe but the food was not outstanding.

“A hopping neighborhood Cuban restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Good food, great selection of menu items, great service, and very friendly staff. We had a 6:30 PM reservation becaus ethe place was closing for a private party at 7:00 PM but we ran late and didn't arrive there until 7:00. The Maitre D Adiel [sp?] was very gracious and sat us anyway.

“Lucy, I'm Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Little Ricky's is great. The food is authentically good and the service is friendly & personable. I highly recommend the plantains as a side to your meal. They are delicious. The atmosphere is fun and inviting as well as happy. Overall a great little restaurant.
