The place is friendly and the staff attentive. However the food was really really not good. The worst Pizza I have had, probably ever. Food eaten by both other guests was rated as OK to poor.More

Hello 'doctor', I'm disappointed you didn't enjoy your pizza, and aghast you said 'worst', as I myself love them so much, I rarely eat pizza elsewhere! As I've said before though, if I could produce food that every single person who ate it raved, I'd...More

We went for a meal after reading the reviews. This place is well worth a visit, the food is excellent and the owners very nice friendly people. You can take your own wine which is very nice too. We will definitely be going back.

Best pizza I ever had! Wonderful staff. Wish it was my local. It is cafe. Informal dining. Family atmosphere. They use rep ingredients including 100% mozzarella

I've lived here in the UK for more than 4 years and I haven't been able to find a great pizza... until now. Ricci's is amazing. You get the gooey/stringy cheese I miss, the sauce is divine (and there isn't too much)and the thin crust?...More

If, like me, you struggle to find a decent cup of coffee then Ricci is the answer to your prayers. The owners are rightly proud of their coffee. They also offer a great selection of snacks, pizza and cakes. Well worth a visit.More
