We visited this restaurant, a bit out of the way, but well worth it, last week. They have an excellent selection on the menu and have many types of wine to choose from. The staff is helpful and knowledge, especially the hostess Sue is great. The food was well proportioned and superbly prepared. The place is very busy, therefore reservations... More

I ate here with my family because of the close proximity to our camping site and we were all very happily surprised by the service, food, and live music. We went on a Thursday and their special was $7 off any bottle of wine so we decided to try the Tightrope Pinot Noir and it was an instant hit. Everyone... More

We had another restaurant planned, but fortunately it was close that evening! So we went to Ricardo's. We were impressed with everything. Service was perfect. The decor is great, warm Italian style. Food was super great. The linguine al mare has exceeded our excpectations. So many shrimps and seafood in the plate. It was simply delicious. We would definitely highly... More

Dined here to celebrate our daughter's convocation from UBC Okanogan. This restaurant was highly recommended by locals. We were skeptical on the drive up as it's located in a rural area north of Kelowna in a drab-looking building at the end of a dead end street. Table seating is tight however we had a great corner table with high-backed comfy... More

Surprise-- we met friends who were staying in the RV park adjacent to Ricardos & WOW are we ever glad we tried the restaurant. --Friendly attentive service --live jazz performance:Bonus !... More

This is a popular restaurant with nice food. I had the seafood linguine which was a good size and tasty. The service is a bit hit and miss although friendly. We were brought the dessert menu and waited quite some time for our server to return so I could order however when she did, she brought us the bill so... More

Our waiter was attentive and food was well prepared and seasoned, with portions large... More

Visited Ricardo's with friends after golf. We found the service to be excellent. The warm olives were a very nice appetizer. The pasta was good, not necessarily the best in Kelowna.

We had the salmon with dill sauce and the chicken parmesan. Both menu items were overpriced and not that tasty. The presentation was certainly not inspirational. The tiramisu was a small portion for the price as well. Save your money and don't bother. In addition, the waitress was not attentive, no water refills and had to ask for a refill... More
