Ricos family owned, fresh home made pasta. Owner Rico came out to visit my table. He'll make it for you even if it's not on the menu . Awesome

I rarely do reviews, and I don't live in Pittsburgh, but I had such a wonderful experience I thought it needed to be brought to everyone attention. I had never been to this place but my sister in law suggested we try it. Turns out, the place has been there since like 1979. We walked in; nice bar area, nothing... More

7 adults 2 children. We had a 6:30 reservation we're seated around 7. At 8:30 I tracked our waitress down that we were ready to order. She told us she was hard of hearing. Not super impressive. Food was ok. We ordered a Caesar salad for 6. My mom literally got 8 pieces of romaine. My pasta rico was extremely... More

With a group on business trip and we decided to eat at Rico's. We had a good experience, the service was good & the view from windows was very pleasant. The steak was top quality(prime) and everyone enjoyed their meal. Rico's took me back 25 plus years in style & feel. Rico's menu is on the higher priced scale, but... More

Best Italian Food I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Staff along with the owner himself are their to greet you and make sure your every need is met. The menu has much to choose from and will special order something if needed. Highly recommended if you are wanting Italian Food like the old country.

Dinner at Rico's is like family. Upon entering you are greated by the vivacious Lisa Rose or the always competent Dave. The wait staff is attentive, friendly and efficient. When your food arrives you know you came to the right place. I will be returning soon.

Went for our 25th anniversary and more importantly site of our first date. Was a bit disappointed that the staff whe told of our special occasion did not really even acknowledge it with so much as a congratulations. Thought the food was good, but not as good as in past visits. Expensive but probably most upscale place in the immediate... More

My husband loves the veal parmagian here and wants to come every few months. I agree that the dish is very good. We've been coming to Rico's for years. We decided to sit at the bar and have a drink last evening before being seated for dinner. I ordered a Capt. and coke and asked for it in a big... More

Party of three. We all had seafood. I personally had the Canadian salmon stuffed with crab. The salmon was overdone. The crab meat itself was good, however it was mixed with frozen spinach. My side dish was Brussel sprouts.. again they were frozen. My partner had the swordfish with Caribbean seasoning. It was actually very good.... but again the side... More
