i Ricchi Ratings and Reviews

I think i Ricci has to be my favorite restaurant of all times. The food, service and ambiance is all superb, and I feel like family when I am there. There isn't too much on the menu that I haven't tried, and loved. I look forward to the specials, as it gives a departure from the norm, yet still at an unbelievably high level of quality. From the valet service (complimentary) to the friendly bartender (Eric), the entire evening is always a treat.
I've taken friends and family there and they are also impressed with the overall output from the restaurant. I love it and will continue to return!!!

Had a fantastic dinner there for my 9 year anniversary with my boyfriend. Our waiter was fantastic, the decorations were gorgeous, and Darius Rucker was eating there too! The food was delicious, perfect serving sizes, great bread, wonderful mussels, and the perfect slice of cheesecake with a cappuccino.

Service was fantastic! The food was amazing and plentiful (almost too much). The attention to detail was amazing. There is a feeling that the people who work at this establishment really go out of their way to ensure the customers have a wonderful meal and experience. We would highly recommend.

This is Tuscan-style Italian. I had grilled salmon with polenta, which was well prepared. We used a Goupon meal for four, which was an outstanding value. Otherwise, count on paying $50-75 per person for a three course meal with wine.

What can I say about iRicci that I haven't sais in my many previous reviews. It brings together all of the qualities one looks for in their go to restaurant. Consistently good food, excellent service and outstanding ambiance from start to finish. Whether it is a planned meal, or a spur of the moment decision, iRicci is always at the top of the list. I will continue to patronize iRicci as I know it is a place where I know what to expect and I am never disappointed.

We were just in town for a long weekend. We stopped in to eat around 5pm. We beat the evening rush (Thursday). The ambiance was great but the food was not. My tortellini was chewy and my spouse's rissoto and artichoke was hard. Seemed like the food wasn't cooked enough. They open for dinner at 5pm... maybe because we were among the first to arrive they didn't take the time to cook the food properly. Don't know...

We were warmly welcomed and seated immediately. Our server was the perfect combination of professional waitstaff and people person. She was attentive yet did not hover. The food is divine. Every morsel!
I highly recommend i Ricchi!

Always a delight to dine at iRicchi. This time we started our meal with a limoncello martini, followed by a wonderful Pinot Grigio, mussels, branzino. All perfect. And you absolutely must try the cheesecake. Thank you Christina Ricchi for a stunning experience.

Great service. Can't say enough about Tia(?). Very attentive and enthusiastic - and extremely interested in how the (first) date was going. Cute. And the Chef apparently thought it wasn't going that great and sent out a little extra dessert.
Setting aside my apparently bad date-side manner, I thought that was supper nice (see what I did just there?).

i Ricci is always a pleasure to visit. Fresh ingredients, lovely courses and splendid service. If you want a good experience in Washington DC I Ricci is a good place to go. Business meal or romantic dinner doesn't matter. A good experience.

Excellent service - attentive servers, constantly filling up waters and drinks and cleaning our tables . Super food!1 Wonderful atmosphere. I requested a quiet table as it was our anniversary celebration through opentable and when we got there they seated us in a really super nice quiet area- very accommodating restaurant!! Super ! will definitely come back again with family and friends!

You feel a bit like you're home but someone else cooked and cleaned. Everyone is calm, relaxed. I don't want that to sound like they are careless, everyone here was incredibly professional, they just aren't uptight or stuffy. I never worried I was going to get an eyeroll for asking about wine or using the wrong fork. It was a lovely evening. We all opted for pasta since everything is homemade and you just can't get that everywhere. I'd highly recommend i Ricchi. Thank you to the restaurant for a truly spectacular experience!

As usual, I Ricci delivered on all points. The evening's specials were amazing, a bone in pork loin with plum sauce! The risotto of the day, also spectacular. I tried the only dessert I hadn't tried, the cannoli, which is delicious. The service, as I have come to expect is above par for Washington restaurants and the support staff, most of whom have been there several years, beyond comparison. No detail is left unattended to. If you haven't been, I strongly suggest you try it, and soon. Let me not forget to mention the complimentary valet parking, which is a rare find in DC these days.

Food, service excellent. Half dozen entrees had a surcharge on the menu. No choice for wine except red or white. Restaurant needs to better communicate limits on Groupon. Other than that great food, great experience

We had not been to this area for several years and I Ricci is as good as we remember. Two adults and a child were in our party and the food and service was outstanding. The restaurant was very accommodating in making something special for our 10 year old. We will certainly be back on our next visit to Washington DC.

The roasted beet salad was delicious. My husband had the beef tenderloin for his entree, and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked - not over salted as many restaurants tend to do. I had the branzino which was delicous! We finished with tiramisu. While this was not the best tiramisu I've ever had, it was a tasty end to the meal.

We had a terrible experience with service. The waiter rushed us from the moment we sat down. One of our guests didn't get her shrimp dish. The waiter never explained the problem. Then he eventually brought her a salad that we were actually charged for. She ended up cancelling her dish. I explained the situation to management but there was no compensation... other than the fact that we were not automatically charged the tip. The server hovered over us while we signed our credit card bills. Very disappointing service from server and management.

I Ricci is one of my all time favorite places to dine in DC. Not only is the food delicious, but the entire staff is amazing. There are not too many restaurants that go the extra mile, but this is one of them. The food, starting with the bread, is absolutely delicious and the service is top notch, from the valet to the management, but I must say, they have some of the best and nicest wait staff I've ever encountered. The restaurant is also charming and authentic in its décor. Ms. Ricci certainly knows how to run a business!
