“For those of you from NY and NJ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Closest thing to real NY-NJ pizza in this town. The staff has a genuine NJ quality, and the pizza is the thin crust foldable type that beats the imposter deep stuff from Chicago by ,miles and miles.
A quick trip to the "old country." Pretty good stuff.

The picture they show is not of the Rico's on Bay rd, and extension of Bee Ridge.It's at the far end of a small shopping center on your left as cross Tamiami Trail. Parking can be tight bit there plenty nearby.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

Service was fast and friendly even though the restaurant was fairly busy. Atmosphere was good, but restaurant was a little loud because the kitchen and bar are directly next to the eating area. Food was delicious. Tables a little dirty but very livable. Would come back here.

“Eh... Won't be coming back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Ordered a Works pizza from Rico's pizza. It took about an hour, then when it got here it got cold very quickly. Also, it was not very tasty. It tasted like canned olives and mushrooms instead of freshly cut up produce.

“Pizza, pizza, pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

So hard to find really good pizza in Florida; I stand usually disappointed. Not so with Rico's, thin, fold in half, little bit of oil running down kinda pizza. A large is Large! Eat in or take out, it's yum!

“Superb Pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We stumbled on this Pizza place as it was listed in our resort (Palm Bay Club-Siesta Key) information in the unit as a great pizza delivery place. The pizza was SO GOOD. We went and picked it up ourselves but they do deliver as well. We had some left over and it was just as good the next day. Price was great too.

We liked it so much we got pizza from them a second time during our trip.

Try it you will not be disappointed!
