Riccardo Trattoria

Riccardo started his career at a very young age in Milan's prestigious "GIRARROSTO" family owned. Then, in 1982 he moved to the United States and he opened the famous Sonny Bono's in Los Angeles. In 1987 he started to work with his cousin Roberto Ruggeri (owner of Bice's Venture), with him he opened Bice New York, Los Angeles and many others around the world.

Now, after three years as Executive Chef of Bice in Chicago, and together with his wife (and sous chef), Veronica, and his cousin (and hostess), Barbara, he decided to continue his gastronomic artistry and creativity in his restaurant named after himself "Riccardo Trattoria."


Here through the craftsmanship of an Italian food connoisseur, dishes are prepared with an almost zen-like essentiality that has shaped Riccardo's professional and existential life course.

"We have dined at the Trattoria a few times by now, and have always been delighted with the quality of the food. The wood-heavy interior is cozy with a touch of modernity. Spacing between tables creates a sense of intimacy without feeling cramped (though the chairs are a bit awkward). The kitchen is partly visible from the dining room, and Mr. Riccardo Michi himself stopped by a number of tables, including ours, to inquire into the diners' satisfaction. All these attributes create a classically Italian sense of home. It's also possible to come dressed down or up and feel equally at ease. The food is traditional and presented elegantly. The Veal Saltimbocca Romana was tender and delicious. The Orecchiette Cinghiale were pleasantly spicy but perhaps a bit on the dry side. Dessert is always a pleasure. With its varied menu options, it is a wonderful place to return to many times and get to know more intimately!"

"I rarely write bad reviews but think it is my duty in this case. We are long time residents of Lincoln park and want to support local, independent restaurants. I have been here three times and every time the food has been average with the exception of the desserts which are exceptional. The first few meals the service was fine however last night, I had possibly the worst experience I've ever had with a haughty waiter who also appeared to suffer from Tourette's syndrome. All of the waiters seemed put off and each had no more than 5 tables assigned so the terrible service was not a result of being under staffed. Each waiter kept their eyes lowered and visited one table at a time before returning to the kitchen area, never bothering to ask if anyone needed anything on their way.
What really upset me was when I tried (for the third time) to get our waiter's attention and he very angrily looked at me and said "one minute," he then went back and stood in the kitchen area and did nothing but fidget (I could see him) and didn't come to our table for about 5 minutes. He was visibly enraged with me. The worst part is that he kept giving me the evil eye throughout the entire meal. It was actually kind of amusing. I have never experienced such rudeness from a waiter. Again, I do think he had some type of psychological or medical issue but I'm terrible with numbers so didn't go into accounting. What is this guy doing in customer service?
Three times is enough. There is absolutely nothing special about this place. You can buy their house Sangiovese at Plum Market for $11. The only possibly appealing aspect is that it is small and intimate."

"We were a party of four and only one of us had eaten here before. We all had different appetizers and entrees and were very pleased. Not only was the food good, the presentation was very well done. The desserts were terrific - although we only tried two!
Our waitress was perfect. She kept her eye on our table and was responsive and attentive without dominating the scene. Our water glasses were refilled when only half empty. The total for our dinners + wine was incredibly reasonable.
This is a wonderful spot for a great dinner!"

"I really can't say a bad thing about this place. Oh maybe that the tables are rather close, but then you can see what your fellow diners have chosen. The food is really outstanding, albeit not cheap eats or cheap wine, but certainly finer cuisine or comparable to others in it's class. And a gem in the neighborhood. The waiters are attentive, the hostess very nice and the staff always there to answer any question. All incredibly important to me. And I am happy that a place that makes me feel glad I chose it to dine in has such a talented cook."

"Just love their calamari and all of the pastas. We ordered from the special restaurant week menu for dinner, but I think you could get any entree on their regular menu. Great panna cotta too. This is probably my favorite restaurant to go back to again and again. Best Italian outside of Italy (sorry Grandma!)"

"We went for Restaurant Week and were not disappointed. Flavors were vibrant and service was excellent. The grilled octopus app was very good, as was the tuna. For mains, we ordered the pheasant and elk. Both were oh so good. The chocolate cake and apple pie at the end were fantastic. Thanks, Riccardo Trattoria!"

"A friend recommended Riccardo Trattoria. Every time I looked on Open Table, we could either get in at 5:00 or 9:00. It's popular for a reason. Great food and a charming ambiance. My husband loved the soft shell crab appetizer and the branzino. Same for my asparagus souffle and veal with prosciutto and fontina. Very extensive menu with prompt, friendly service. We'll definitely be back."

"Riccardo is one of Chicago's staple restaurants. This is not the "big-scene," "gimmick menu," trendy-themed spot....This is just amazingly good, italian food, with the Chicago family-owned ambiance and personal feel. This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the city. They make each patron feel like they have known you for years, and you're as "VIP" as the other table."

"We visited Ricardo's on a busy Saturday night. From the reception to the servers, the personnel was very inviting and courteous. We had the beet salad as well as the arugula, both were very good and well proportioned. The lamb and risotto entrees were delicious and not overly salted. The deserts of apple pie and tiramisu were also very good. Overall, we were pleased and will return."
