Delightfully intimate setting with an old-school Italian feel. I was not expecting it to be as small as it was, but it was perfect for a date. Jam packed for a Monday night, it wasn't so close packed as to make it difficult to converse or to be overheard. The food was delicious and the presentation immaculate. I will definitely be returning here!

Super cute and cozy spot in a very neighborhoody area of Lincoln Park. Food was delicious, and service was warm and accomodating. We sat at a table near the hallway leading to the kitchen and bathrooms, and there was such a nice rapport among the staff--no doubt the food is prepared with Amore! If you love Italian, this is not-to-be-missed.

This is supposed to be the best in Chicago? I do not agree. THere are definitely others, how about Pelago or Merlo or Coco Pazzo or Spiaggia? This is a good neighborhood place, if it is in your neighborhood and you have a reservation. Nothing terrible here but, really? The reviews are over the top compared to what it is and I have been there several times.

I moved to old town about a year ago. I have walked to this place several times with various people. I am some one who will order the same food at a place all the time. I have never ordered the same meal twice here and have always had extremely delicious food. The service has been amazing and they usually remember me. They have asked me a few times how my mom is becasue she came with me once.

My first dinner at Trattoria Riccardo was excellent! I had a delicious dish of Pappardalle with Porcini mushrooms, it was amazing. Our server, a very sweet Italian guy named Luca, recommended a great wine to go with our dinner, and really made it a relaxing, enjoyable experience. I would recommend this place to anyone for a great date night, or a night out with the girls!

An actual Italian restaurant. Not just Italian style. Even though it was a Monday and Riccardo was off (he has off Monday and Tuesday), the place was near capacity. It's not very big. So, if you are more than 3, I'd suggest making a reservation. Everyone was chatting but it wasn't too loud which made conversation easy. Great place for a date. I was dressed business casual and felt a little under dressed. Oh, and the food was really good. The portion wasn't huge but was just enough to leave a little room for dessert. I had the Veal & Ricotta Meatloaf "Cesarina" and Cioccolatissimo.
