“Great Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2011

Have been going there for many years now. The wine list is awesome, and the recommendations are usually perfect for what price and style you want. The traditional pasta dishes are the best in town, in my opinion, and well worth the price on special occasions or just out with friends.

“Off the beaten path delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2011

While visiting the Portland area, we were treated to lunch at this delightful little ristorante in Lake Oswego. We were seated in the open air/walled in patio with each table enjoying a patio umbrella. The weather was perfect. The entrees were, as far as we could tell, authenticly Italian and delicious, the waiter- recommended wine was refreshing and perfectly paired to our lunches. Prices were modest, but service was attentive, pleasant and our wait-person, of course, was very knowledgeable. For a relaxing meal in homey, lovely and pleasant surroundings we all would recommend a visit to Riccardo's. We will be returning when we are in Portland.

“Pretty good Italian, but awful pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

We recently moved near where Riccardo's is located and had heard great things about it. We stopped by on a Thursday night and chose to sit outside. Our server was very attentive and gave me time to look over their hard to go through wine "book" to choose a bottle of wine. Choices were plentiful, but the notebook was hard to go through. Our server helped us with our dinner choices. To his credit...he didn't steer me to the most expensive item. We settled on their house speical lasagne and a veal medallions dish. the food was good, but in my opinion not fantastic. There are so many good options in Portland and a large number of Italian restaurants. Riccardo's is a good place...but the prices are pretty high. It is worth a try, but I will most likely stick to Riccardo's for Apps and a glass of wine. The outside area is fantastic

“Same old riccardos twice the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2011

I've been eating at riccardos for over 20 years as it's a staple of the lake Oswego area. The lasagna is amazing, the pasta ragu is delightful, and the rest of the menu should be shredded. We are there last month and got the typical cold should from crabby old Riccardo. The server who is Italian was delightful and even sang to us in Italian. The prices have almost double which gave us hope that he had upgraded his dishes, but it was the same old tired fare.

Go to Riccardos, sit outside, enjoy the lasagna and decent wine list. The chicken and steak are likely better at Olive Garden and the owner of the local taco bell will certainly make you feel more welcome.

“Very consistent experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

I have now eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The pasta and veal dishes are excellent and always well prepared. They have an outstanding wine list and will go out their way to help you find a wine that will go well withyour food as well as your personal preferences.
I do think that the food prices are a bit on the high side, but not excessive. It definitely one of my favorite places for a special night out. If you happen to visit on a nice night, be sure to try and sit out on the patio.
