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.

Ambience was elegant & comfortable. Service was attentive. Food quality was good though it seems to have lost a bit of its "wow" effect from the past. Still a worthwhile place to for an enjoyable dining experience and especially a good deal with a Groupon.

6:30 PM reservation, we decided to eat outside since the inside was too noisy as happy hour was still going on. The free valet parking was a very nice touch as we arrived during rush-hour when it is difficult to park on the street. The 2 of us, enjoying a date night on a Tuesday were seated outside at a four-person table under a nice patio umbrella. The table and the table next to us both needed wobble wedges, which were addressed immediately.
The service was prompt and polite throughout the evening, with multiple people asking us in an unintrusive way how our meals were at each course. We used a three course meal Groupon, and every dish was delicious. We had the scallops and octopus much were both cooked perfectly and well seasoned. We had veal and octopus but were both cooked perfectly and well seasoned. And we had the veal and branzino for the entrées, also delicious! I'd give the cheesecake a 4 out of 5, but overall still pretty good.
Would definitely recommend i Ricchi to anyone looking for a great Italian restaurant!

One of the best dining experiences I can remember having. The meat was cooked as ordered & the tastes of the Lamb Chops & steak were wonderful. The vegetables were cooked well also. Too often things are either over or under cooked. This chef was on top of his game. The fresh bread, appetizer's, wine & dessert were all very good. Our waiter was knowledgeable & very comfortable to talk with. Service can add or subtract from a meal, & in this case he definitely enhanced our evening. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

iRicchi has AMAZIng food and great service. What sets them apart is the friendly staff and welcoming nature of everyone in the restaurant. We always dine when there is a GROUPON or Living Social deal (it is pricey without the deal but worth the $ either way) and we are always treated wonderfully.
I took a friend for her 50th birthday and (in her words) "OMG, everything that touched my lips was amazing"!

Had a hankering for Italian and heard i Ricchi was great--and it was! Owner/funder Christianne Ricchi oversees the operation personally, and the staff are outstanding (if you can, ask for Darina). I had a very filling tuna and bean salad for an appetizer (could have sufficed for dinner), plus an outstanding roast salmon. Just a block or two SW of Dupont Circle Metro, this restaurant is outstanding!

I ordered an appetizer of sausage and beans. The menu didn't say there was fennel in the sausage. I don't like fennel and would have ordered something else if I'd known. Also my entree was trout, which was not seasoned at all, but which I've found is typical of restaurants that serve fish.

There was a very large table (about 12 to 14 people) next to us, so the noise was overwhelming. Even with just two of us we could not carry on a conversation. We used a Groupon which is a great deal. In the past, the food has been excellent, but this time it was mostly mediocre. The grilled octopus was rubbery and the filet zingara (which had been great in the past) was poor - not great meat quality and it seemed as if it has been microwaved - the meat was not browned at all on the outside, no flavor. Very good burrata appetizer and good cheesecake for dessert.

We come here every time we visit DC. The food is consistently fabulous. The dining room transports you to the hills of Tuscany. Service is attentive without ever being intrusive. Always a memorable meal at I Ricchi!

One of many visits to I ricchi. Experience was outstanding from my reminder call by Anastasia to our welcome by Anastasia, our hostess to our service by Dorina who was not only a great waitperson but a charming woman as well. We will be back

I booked this well in advance of our trip to DC. We were looking to enjoy a first romantic dinner but found the service not conducive to this. We ordered appetisers and said we would enjoy them and then order dinner after. The waiter said that they don't do it that way and we needed to order everything a once. We were rushed and probably ordered things that we wouldn't have if we had the timing as we wished it to be. The food was okay...probably because we didn't order what we really would have liked.

I can't say enough about i ricci. The food, the staff, the ambiance, all superior to 95% of the restaurants in DC. I've been here numerous times, and it continues to impress me. Whatever the occasion, I am always more than satisfied with my dining experience. Not only is the food extraordinary, but I will say they have the best bread basket in town! Ms. Ricci is certainly at the top of her game.
