Riccardo's Lake Oswego Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Riccardos many times and the food never disappoints, until Friday evening, the bread was not fresh. I think it had probably been setting out and became dry or was left from the lunch crowd. Most disappointing - they eliminated the Melanzane Parmigiano from the menu. I have ordered that for many years because it is the best ever. I hope they bring it back.
The food was fabulous. Best veal I've had in ages. The tables are a bit close together so it can be somewhat noisy. They have a great wine selection. The waiter was very knowledgeable about all the dishes as well as the wines. All in all we had a wonderful dinner.
Always have a fabulous dining experience at Riccardos. Exceptional wine selection, great food and very good service. The staff is quite knowledgeable on their wines and pairing them with entree recommendations. Patio seating (once the weather warms up) is the way to go !
Service was wonderful and attentive. We absolutely LOVED the polenta appetizer and wanted to lick the plate it was so delicious 😀. My friend had the stuffed ravioli and ate all but one or two because she was so full. I had the chicken with veggies and it was very good. Although there was a small problem with a double charge on my credit card, Shane the manager called and immediately fixed it with a gift card as an apology. We will DEFINITELY come again!!
Fabulous meal at a very reasonable price! We are visiting from Florida and have tried several restaurants in Lake Oswego this past week. Riccardo's has been the best. The food was excellent and the service was on par. Definitely a place to return to on our next visit!
Great neighborhood restaurant in Lake Oswego well worth the drive from almost anywhere in Portland. They specialize in Italian cuisine and have an excellent wine list featuring Italian wines. We went their Friday for the razor claims which they occasionally feature and were delicious. The Penne Arrabbiata is also a favorite. Our waiter was wonderful and his wine recommendations paired beautifully with our meal. If your looking for a good Italian meal with wines from the mother country, give Riccardo's a try. You won't be disappointed.
Mu only issue with Riccardo's is that there are nuts in dishes that should not have any. I have a nut allegy. No where on their menu do they list for example, their lasagna has nuts in the meat sauce. The same holds true for their Ragu Sauce for pasta. It is hard to order a dish not knowing if there are nuts in it. From now on, no matter what I order, I will have to ask if there are nuts in the dish. They do not seem to think this is major as I have mentioned to them several times that nuts are not listed on their menu.
I got off on the wrong foot with this place by ordering an appetizer that I would normally like, but did not care for the restaurant's version. However, the main courses were all excellent, and the service by both the front of the house and the table staff was excellent. I will definitely return to try a better appetizer!
I made online reservations for a business lunch for a party of 10 on a Thursday at noon. I added a note to inform Riccardo's staff that we were under time constraints and had to be back at the office for a meeting. When we arrived at Riccardo's, we were quickly seated and the waiter immediately gave us menus and took drink orders. Meal orders were taken next and we enjoyed several appetizers before the timely arrival of our lunch entrees. Everyone enjoyed their entrees (the entrees were very well done and nicely presented). We were able to take the time to enjoy our lunches and have productive conversations as well. The staff at Riccardo's was very accommodating as to our time constraint, and we got back to the office before our meeting started. It was a very enjoyable experience, and I would recommend this establishment to others.
The place is nice, having been in various cities throughout Italy, I'd say it was somewhat similar to dining in Italy but lacks some authenticity with the food. Sauces in our main entree were salty but the salads were perfectly mixed with oils, wine was delicious, and our waiter was amazing & very knowledgeable.
We booked Ricardo's about a week out for at 6:30 reservation. We have eayenbhere several times before and wanted someplace close and not too loud in ordered to visit with friends.
Although the table were really close together we still enjoyed a great converaation, dinner and wines. Our waiter was excellent. His wine suggestions were spot on and dinner recommendations delicious. Two of us opted for the fish which was delicately prepared in a butter sauce and cooked wth a generous portion of broccoli and cauliflower. My husband had their scrumptious lasagna which is made with a d red and bechemel sauce. Lastly, my girlfriend choose the chicken dish she always gets because she loves olives and the sauce included them:)
Perfect portions and a lovely ambience made our evening truest successful.
Very helpful and fun waiter. Nice wine list with expanded information on all selections. Menu had a variety of meat, fish, and veggie options. We all ordered something different and shared bites. Not a bad dish. Worth calling out the Italian wine shop across the parking lot - $5 tastings 2nd Sunday of every month between noon and 3pm served by Riccardo himself. Tastings include 5-10 wines and tasty bites on the side.
