We enjoy Rico's when we have a group, especially with children. Wide variety on the menu. Love the breadsticks. Reasonable prices.

Every year we bring a busload of lady skiers for dinner and drinks and the food and service never disappoint! The highlight of a Sun Valley day trip is a well deserved dinner and box of brownies for the bus ride home.
