We recently visited Rico's on a Sunday afternoon for a special birthday dinner. We were a group of 5. We were immediately seated in a very comfortable, private corner table. Our server was very professional and provided fast, accurate service. He was very personable and even offered to take a picture of our group. The food was outstanding, entrees varied... More

We had cannelloni, swordfish, veal piccata and chicken parmigiana and all were tasty if not delicious. Sauces were heavy as well as the portions and therein very good for tasty family dining. None of the dishes were creative, especially tasty but all were satisfying. Service was good, pricing fair. Ideally suited for family night out but not for special celebrations,... More

A gem of a restaurant located along Bridge St., (Rt. 290), welcomes you with a warm and casual atmosphere. Good wine selection and great menu options. They have an entrée to satisfy whatever you're in the mood for, not just Italian dishes. Great portions, you never leave still hungry, with reasonable prices. Jamie was wonderful, making sure our dining experience... More

Took the family to Rico's for the first time. You have a choice of ordering the entree or the dinner. We all decided to order various dinners which included italian bread/butter, good size antipasto salad, cup of soup, your main dish(good size portion), coffee, and dessert. Our waitress (Cora) was excellent. We will definitely be back. I liked the chicken... More

There is NO atmosphere here so dont expect anything fancy.The service was ok...our server forgot a few things but made up for it with the her friendliness and patients with my 2 children who can be a hand full. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and family orientated. I was SO excited they had raw clams (which were delish)... More
