We were greeted cheerfully by any staff we saw as soon as we entered, We were seated even though we were not all there, even though I had forgotten to make the reservations. This was a group of friends who dine out monthly, and there was no problem with getting separate checks. The service was excellent. Our meals were wonderful.... More

Quiet setting with good food. The waitress was good and also friendly. It's a little upscale prices aren't bad.

I have always enjoyed the food at this restaurant. Recommended it to friends and brought guests there. Now I have read for the second time this year,failing health inspections.The reasons for failing are quite serious (not the sometimes minor infractions).I am sad and will not return until this restaurant gets consistent passing inspections.

Have been to Rico's on many many occasions and you know you'll always get traditional, comforting, immensely portioned meals. Steve is (almost) always right there to greet you and does he have a gift for recalling faces & names & history! Just the kind of welcome that makes anyone feel like a valued family member. Once seated the waitstaff will... More

Host, wait staff, and bar tenders are welcoming, very friendly and accommodating. The menu has a vast # of selections and the wait staff is willing to bring any modifications to the chef and he is always willing to prepare your menu selection as you would have it. All of the traditional Italian meals are offered. Their pasta dishes with... More

I'll start by telling you we were a party of six. All six of us have been to Italy together and we've enjoyed many meals there. One couple is from Canada, another is from NJ and we are from RI so this location was somewhere in the middle for all. Attracted by the website and the owner's word on the... More

We were a large group (18 or so) meeting for a birthday party. Food was good and served in a timely fashion. It was a very busy early Saturday evening. We were not separated from other patrons but no one seemed to be bothered by our boisterous gathering. One thing I thought was odd was that my filet mignon was... More

Though people rave and insist Rico's has the best sauce around, I don't necessarily agree. Food is fine, wait staff is attentive, bartender is superior, atmosphere is okay. The few items that we order that are consistently terrific are their antipasto salad and garlic pizza - no one does it better!
