My parents really like Riccardo's, and it is understandable why. This is good quality family style Italian. I therefore tend to end up here with them when I am back home in Essex County. Nothing fancy, and not exceptional, but it is solid. Waitresses always tend to be friendly, and service is usually quick, which is good because its usually busy and they tend to move fast to get a high turnover.
The dining room experience is not fancy, its a very basic place to eat. It is not fine dining, but then again there is not much of that available in Windsor or Essex County. There is better Italian dining to be had on Erie Street. But if you want an affordable high quality family style Italian dining experience, Riccardo's is tough to beat. Soups are usually good, and the Veal Parm is always great. You will not leave hungry.
