We took Uber over to Lincoln Park area for pizza at Chicago Pizza & Oven Grinder. However, upon arrival to a large crowd waiting out front, we were told it was at least a 2 hour wait. We didn't want pizza that badly!!! So, checked Trip Advisor & Yelp for other nearby restaurants & chose to try Riccardo's Tratorria. We... More

Riccardo never lets us down with magnificent food, service and ambiance! We just love dining at this elegant Trattoria. Last evening, Riccardo, once again, adorned us with his delicious food when he chose a selection of his best dishes for us to try. From the bruschetta to the lobster ravioli to the veal milanese...the flavors were divine. The wait staff... More

The reviews are spot on. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. We shared the octopus for our appetizer at our waiter's suggestion. (By the way, he was from Milan and he even tried to teach us a few Italian words!) I had the Bronzino and my wife... More

This is the best Italian food I have ever had. The waiters are attentive and helpful in recommending dishes, and the kitchen will make a dish for you at your request if it is not available on the menu. A+++

This place fires on all cylinders. Food is amazing, service is personal, and the atmosphere is very intimate and warm. I hosted a group of 10 for my son's graduation from college. They had great wines, only a $24 corkage fee (we brought along a couple of bottles of champagne to toast the new graduate), and great cocktails. Firstly, the... More

If Riccardo Trattoria isn't the best Italian restaurant in Chicago I don't know what is. Totally authentic Italian items. A rather huge number of choices considering the modest kitchen space Riccardo and his staff h e to work with. Daily specials are numerous and literally always perfect. Love this joint.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic Italian cuisine. The Veal was amazing and they have a great wine selection. Cannolis were unavailable which was somewhat disappointing.

This was a top 10 all time meal. The Gnocchi was like little pillows. The Orecchietta was perfectly cooked. The pork tenderlion Maialino was moist and tender. This was the last restaurant we visited during a week in Chicago. We almost canceled because we had eaten so well before this. We were glad we didn't. Once there we thought we... More

On multiple occasions we have gone to a restaurant that gets rave reviews on TA yet our experience is the complete opposite. Such was the case with Riccardo Trattoria. We honestly wish we could find one redeeming thing to say about the food, but sadly we can’t. It’s not like we don’t dine out often; say 6 nights a week,... More

Just came back from Italy last month. I visited Riccardo's last night and thought I wasn't home yet! Nice to have Italian rather than "Italian style"
