Scratch made, casual fine dining I guess you could call it. Came in at 5 and we ordered spaghetti and ravioli. Ticket time of about 12 minutes. Food was prepared well,but a bit off for my tastes. Ravioli sauce was less pesto and to much salt? Garlic powder? Something sure did throw the balance off. Still pretty good though. Wife... More

We had good dining experiences in the past at Ricardo's and decided to go back to give it another try as we were staying in the vicinity. This was our first visit in some 4 years. On this Friday evening, we were rather taken by surprise how empty the restaurant parking lot was compared to our first two visits (albeit... More

I had heard that this restaurant was very good. It is small pricey and their Italian cuisine is more Mediterranean

Wonderful food! Quaint setting, cozy atmosphere and the food is to die for! Make sure you make a reservation as you don't want to be disappointed! You can make one online.

Yes , the food was delicious and the service was top notch. I highly recommend the mussels as an appetizer. I also tasted my friend's prawn appetizer and it was yummy. Everybody loved their mains , Ribs, prime rib, gnocchi and seafood pasta . Large portions so go easy on the bruschetta and Italian bread. A couple of complaints... 1.)... More

We moved into the area 14 months ago and every time we drive by the Sail Boat we always say we must go try this place. We heard lots of great things about it and must try. So last night decided to give it a try. Can't say I would recommend this place to anyone base on meal last night.... More

Came late with another couple, and were warmly welcomed. Host was very knowledgable and attentive to our needs and questions. The decor and ambiance is very relaxing and inviting, and we were seated in a corner window table with large overstuffed chairs (so comfortable) and were able to look onto the courtyard with a pond and rock feature. Everyone loved... More

Ricardo's is an intimate little place. Romantically lit and simply but elegantly furnished. The walls adorned with mementos of Chef Ricardo's life. The menu offers the specials of the day which I recommend looking over because the chef knows best. The wild mushroom soup I chose from the specials was simply the best. For my main I chose the linguine... More

We enjoyed the food and ambience at Ricardo's. Ricardo's Coconut Curry Mussels, Crab cakes and prawns were very tasty and well prepared. The Caesar salad was a little limp and lacked flavour...not what we were expecting. We had Tiramisu for dessert..it was excellent! We will return!

We went last night Aug 30, it was busy. Food was awesome, nice and hot. The only downfall was our server wasn't around often, no quality check was done. Still had an awesome night though!
