We went to La Ricetta on a busy Friday evening for a relatively quick meal before seeing Tom Gleeson across the road at the Enmore Theatre. The service was quick and efficient and the food was great - genuine Italian cooking. Arriving at 6pm we were comfortably out by 7.15pm. They do pack the diners in on busy nights so... More

The food is wonderful and the servings surprisingly generous. I was disappointed with the service though. We went on a busy Saturday night and the waitstaff - one very jovial gentlemen and three grumpy women - were overstretched. The old lady who served us wasn't the least bit pleasant. Other reviewers have praised the "warm service", but sadly this was... More

We were looking for a quick meal before a show at the Enmore. This place took our interest and did not disappoint. Seafood and crab risottos were just perfect. Topped off with a nice rocket salad. Quick and friendly service. Fantastic :)

I love risotto and I can't make it, so when I get a chance I ordr it. I wasn't disappointed. Ordered the main meal size and it was Plentifiul, soft, just the right gluginess and filling! I would've liked more parmesan on top, mind you, there was probably enough in the risotto! We were a walk-in and were able to... More

Enjoyed a very pleasant meal here with friends. Booked for 7,45 which proved ideal as the hordes inside were heading off for a 8.00 pm show at the Enmore Theatre, leaving the restaurant nice and uncrowded. Service was friendly but firm in a no-nonsense Italian-nonna way. There were four of us and we tried to negotiate having four pieces in... More

Food here is fantastic, service is also great, but naturally slows when they are short staffed on busy nights. We had Saltimbocca, Risotto Porcini, Risotto Pescatora, Ravioli all' anitra, Lasagne (from the children's menu) and bruschetta and cozze al pomodoro (mussels) as entrée. All very well prepared and presented, and authentically Italian. Drinks list has a reasonable selection of Italian... More
