I visited the restaurant on a Thursday evening after work and was surprised at how crowded it was. The wait wasn't too long. The food was worth the wait. Outstanding. The wait staff were very friendly. The portions were huge. Get the melted cheese on top!

Ate there on a Sunday night and they were busy but got a seat quickly. Service was quick and food came pretty quickly. Food was hot, delicious and presentation was good. Would recommend this restaurant.

Ate with our daughter who coached at UNA. Great food at a cute location - the lasagna was fantastic. Order it with extra cheese on top (tip from waitress).

We had a group of 9 when we ate here so it took a little time to get seated, especially since prom was the same evening. The food and atmosphere is good. Very tight seating arrangements so if you are on the rotund side get a table not a booth. The bread and oil dip is good with free refills.... More

We had dinner there on Saturday and didn't need reservations, but we ate early. Food was devine. I would suggest whatever you get to get a side of alfredo pasta with peas(I understand they are known for this). I would have never put this alfredo with peas but it was an unexpected surprise.

Ricatonis is locally owned and operated. It is located in historic downtown Florence. The building's interior has been preserved from it's original brick walls. This great restaurant specializes in Italian food, however the grilled chicken salad with fruit is also awesome!

I've been eating at this restaurant for many years. I'm so pleased that this privately owned restaurant has survived in a city known for so many "Chain" restaurants. They have a very BIG menu with so many things to choose from. The service is first rate; the only thing better is the food. They specialize in Italian cuisine, but the... More

This is a quaint downtown restaurant. The vibe is nice and welcoming for families and their food is terrific. The Eggplant Parmesan is absolute heaven. Don't miss it!

Thank beyondliberal
