i Ricchi Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely lunch at I Ricchi. We have been coming here, usually for special occasions,for over 20 years. The service is always gracious and the food is memorable. It is not a large dining room, and the tables are close together. It can get a little noisy, depending on who is at the table next to you.
I have always enjoyed i Ricci, both for ...
I have always enjoyed i Ricci, both for their professional wait staff and, most of all, for the food. On this visit, the restaurant was sadly understaffed, which the manager readily told me. Our waitress was delightful, energetic, and knowledgeable, but she wasn't super human and couldn't possibly provide the level of service expected at i Ricci in a timely fashion. She was assigned an overwhelming number of tables -- both inside (where we were seated) and outside, which included a large gathering of members of the i Ricci women's club.

Outstanding service from our server, Tia and the entire staff. Food was delicious and timing of service was not hurried. Beet salad was great and the tenderloin steak was cooked to perfection and very tender. My dessert was wonderful. Great evening and can't wait to return.
I Ricchi was recommended to me by friend ...
I Ricchi was recommended to me by friends from NJ when they heard we were meeting friends in Washington DC. Whenever our friends visit Washington DC they eat there and they said it was excellent. All 4 of us agree, it was terrific. There are many choices for those who do not eat meat as well as those who do. They have a complete bar. Our waitress was a gem. All in all this is a restaurant to visit when in DC.

The bartender that has been there for 13 years is awesome. He knows his drinks.
The best server, Darina, is exceptionally funny and entertaining in a professional and curious way. She knows the food and wine menu very well. Her suggestion of what & how were very helpful.
Now the food, Daily Risotto Special was very tasty. The Filetto Alla Zingara was magical. And lastly Branzino Mediterranio was to die for.

I've hosted events at this location and we had appetizers on those occasions.
I took friends from out of town to i Ricchi and felt the dinner was expensive (for Italian food) and was alright - not great. I doubt that I'll eat there again.

We've always had an enjoyable experience and this time was no exception. Great service and great food. Although I was looking forward to the pasta dish I usually get, it wasn't on the menu so I ordered the special, the salmon. Delish! We'll definitely be going back 👍

The food at iRicchi was wonderful as it always is and the service is great. Joining the Women's Club provides half price menus on Tuesday nights, an exceptional deal--the food is well worth the full price and is a gift at half price!

I spent my birthday here, as it is a favorite of mine and the staff makes me feel like family. The food is amazing and the service impeccable. We had the mussels and the capresse salad as starters, and the veal and the lamb chops as entrees. We finished the meal with cappuccino tiramisu. All were superb and the service level from arrival to departure was extraordinary. There was a large party going on in the front dining room and we were seated in the back dining room, where I had never been in five years of dining here. it is quite nice, and allows you to see the open kitchen, which some really like. Ms. Ricci was, as usual, floating around the dining room, greeting guests and overseeing the operation, something rare in this day and age. if you have not been here, you are definitely missing out. get there soon. you will return.

The food is always good but the service is less than desired. The last two times I've recently been there the servers tend to rush you. Both times we've had to ask for a little time between cocktails, and ordering. The servers who insist you order both appetizers and entrees at the same time hover around the table making you feel uncomfortable until you order. The visit before last the got a wine glass re-order wrong and this last visit they didn't have lamb available but yet we didn't learn until several of us had already ordered dishes featuring lamb. The prices are high but the food is worth it. The service is ok, but not up to the prices being charged.

A very fine meal (risotto con funghi and calamari fritti were the highlights). Excellent service by our waiter tho the greeter was a bit surly. "No, we can't seat you 15 minutes early (even tho many tables empty) because our staff is still seating the previous reservations."
Tables are close together but the noise level was acceptable. We will come again, and recommend to others.

Always First Class. I can't say enough about the restaurant as a whole. Each and every aspect of the dining experience is exemplary. Food is amazing, service attentive and friendly and the ambiance wonderful. I will continue to return as often as I can.

Went there for restaurant week at lunch time. It was my first time at his place and I enjoyed every minute or it. The special menu offered all the specialties of the Card. The risotto as a started was simply delicious and creamy. The pasta with shrimps and zucchini was also very good and no, we did not put parmesan on it, real italian style! And the dessert pannacotta with blueberries the perfect end to a perfect lunch for a mere $22, what more can you wish for! Did not try the wine... Service was perfect too, discreet and kind. Not too noisy either. Will definitely go back!

Good value menu for D.C. Restaurant Week. Each dish well prepared and attractively presented. Blueberry panna cotta and risotta appetizer were terrific. Service just the right amount of helpful and attentive. Tables a bit close together but we had room to adjust.

We chose I Ricchi as one of our Restaurant Week outings this year, and it was phenomenal. I arrived a little early, so I took a seat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly, and there were a few servers passing out complementary hors d'oeuvres. We were seated quickly once my friend arrived, and the server was a great help with selecting a bottle of wine. The food was delicious, and I will definitely be returning for date night.

I am never disappointed by my visits to I Ricci. As often as I have been there, each visit is a treat. The staff, food ambiance and experience are all first class, and I always leave looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Ms. Ricci for running a class operation. There are far too few in the city.

Just had one of the best true Italian meals. Our most able waiter Anthony was masterful at recommending and suggesting dishes. We were not disappointed. Our table of four had a great opportunity to sample this extensive and unusual menu. Fresh, never frozen Calimari, Squid ink pasta, tortoloni with mushrooms in a velvety cream and corn sauce, meatballs made with three meats--these are the marks of of a virtuoso in the kitchen, and very satisfied diners at the white linen table clothed and candlelit tables. Tortoloni pasta was home-made, and most appealing both in its appearance and tooth. Anthony, not sure what we enjoyed more -- the food or your company. A very fine meal enjoyed by all. Great find through Groupon!

My boyfriend and I came here with a Groupon deal and the food was amazing. We had caprese salad, pasta, and dessert. Service was also notable. The only thing that struck us as odd was when we arrived, they first sat us down at a table set for 6 even though there were several tables for 2 open. We asked to be switched and they moved us with no problem.
We definitely plan on coming back again.
