Enjoyed the charcuterie boards. The entrees were hot, and flavorful. I think the price points were a bit high for the ambiance and food. But ultimately we enjoyed ourselves and let full and content. I wouldn't return mainly because Italian isn't my favorite, otherwise the food was tasty and appeared to be quite authentic.

Three of us our fir relaxing dinner after busy day working. Waitress new nothing about wine list which was brief at beat and well over priced.
Recommended wine returned as it was corked. Rest of service non existent.
Food was mediocre at beast. Two of us did not even eat the swordfish which had no flavor. My pasta with clans was over cooked and uninspired.
Save you money and time and eat elsewhere

We loved this restaurant, the service was stellar, the food was wonderful and the ambiance was lovely. The restaurant was packed on the Saturday evening that we were there, lots of people enjoying themselves. We look forward to going back soon!

Made a reservation through Open Table and got the time I wanted. My dinner companion had to cancel at the last moment, so I chose to sit at the Bar. It was unexpectedly terrific - great conversation with the bartender and other bar patrons. Dinner was served promptly and, as usual, was superb. A great evening and dining experience.

We dined here on NY eve and our server was terrible. We waited about 20 minutes for our drinks to come . At the end of our meal he told us we were his last table and he couldn't leave until we left. We weren't closing the place down, but he made it clear he was waiting for us to leave, .The price fix dinner was over priced for what we were served. The lentil soup was very good, but the swordfish was flavorless. Wouldn't go back.

Authentic Tuscan cuisine and excellent service. Totally like being in Florence. Try the risotto with wild mushrooms, and the pici pasta - and of course the Branzino, which is cooked to perfection. Good wine list too. Top it all off with the pear grappa. Can't be beat for a memorable Italian meal in DuPont Circle.

Looking for a spot for our Anniversary lunch, we chose i Ricchi. We had tried to dine there before but picked a time between lunch and dinner when they were closed. We had to be in that neighborhood, knew the outstanding reputation of the restaurant, and decided this was a good time to dine there. The service was appropriately attentive and professional, the bread basket yielded some delightful tastes, the meatball appetizer over polenta was delicious, we welcomed being able to order smaller entree portions since we were going out for dinner later, and our entrees were also delicious. Their sense of al dente pasta was spot on, the pasta had chew but didn't taste like if had been undercooked as I've experienced at other restaurants. The gelati dessert offering four flavors from which we could choose so we had a our version of four scoops was an excellent way to finish the meal. We will definitely dine here again.

After having lived in Italy for several years, it is difficult to find an Italian restaurant in the U.S. that meets my expectations. I Ricchi is one of the few that does. There are many authentic Tuscan dishes and they are all excellent. I have taken dozens of Italian clients to this restaurant and, without exception, they have all given it high praise. It is more expensive than some other restaurants but the quality is well worth the price. For anyone visiting Italy, I also highly recommend the Ricchi family's restaurant in Cercina (Sesto Fiorentino) in the hills overlooking Florence

Excellent dinner with excellent service. We really appreciated everything our server did to make it a special anniversary dinner. We plan to bring our sons and daughter in law next time they are all in town together.

Wonderful food and ambience as usual. the server this time was just okay...meaning she did not reflect the ambience and seemed to be happy to have a job and not happy about that job. Christina has made some terrific changes to the menu and I think her embracing Groupon will really pay off for this little Italian & seafood gem.

We went to i Ricci to celebrate two birthdays prior to going to the theater recently one night. We had informed them of both the birthdays and the time restraints and they handled it, as expected, like pros. We had a delicious meal, as usual, and were out in plenty of time to make the curtain. Food and service were the usual level of excellence and you can't beat the professionalism and the friendliness we always experience. I highly recommend everyone try it, as the food is great, especially the specials, and service far beyond anything I have experienced in most Washington restaurants.

Had a wonderful experience at I Ricchi for my daughter's birthday this weekend. Our server Said was extremely attentive and so helpful with recommendations, and he made the visit extra special by taking our 5-year old into the kitchen to look around. We all loved our meals and the portions are very generous. The ambiance is so elegant and warm. Hope to go again next time I'm in DC!

Food was great and expected. Overall service however was not that great. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed and was just rude at times, came to check in on us every 10-15 mins which was a bit much. Next up we have the "complimentary" valet service outside. I had barely sat in my seat and looking for my purse when a got "um ma'am I do accept tips". I'll say it again, food was great but I won't be going back anytime soon.

Experienced I Ricchi through Groupon. Staff was very friendly and informative about accepting it--not awkward at all. They helped us pick some great menu options to try a variety of tastes. Food was wonderful, and of course we tipped generously and spent the savings on additional drinks. Made us feel like kings (and queens) for an evening.

We always enjoy I Ricchi. Food, service, and ambiance are alway great. Best calimari in town. We loved the beet salad with farro. I would recommend the Filet a la Zingara. It was delicious. Perfectly cooked to medium rare. Would recommend iRicchi to anyone who would like a special evening.

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.
