Went for Dinner on a warm evening, the front windows were folded open of the restaurant. Felt we were lucky and sat by the window and enjoyed the atmosphere. Our server was helpful with our dinner choice when we were deciding between to choices. Our appetizers were Eggplant Rollatini and Meat Balls Both where very good. Mushroom Risotto was delicious,...

Ok, I admit it, one of the reasons we chose this place our first night in Boston was due to the name. ( Riccardo is my husband's name) We figured it was good karma! I have no complaints about our meal. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. My friend is vegan, so of course a meatless pasta sauce... More

Nine of us (all family) had 7:15 reservations at Ricardo's on Saturday evening, April 8, 2017. Right from the start it was downhill! I was told they only had a "partial" liquor license, so they served beer, wine and cordials. When I mentioned someone with a martini, the bartender said, "we only have flavored vodka"! Made absolutely no sense to... More

They wouldn't let us use the groupon we purchased because they told us the fine print wouldn't allow it until after the holidays. The red sauce on the scallop and shrimp plate tasted like it was from a can. Also, the waiter didn't seem very kind and wreaked of smoke. Save your money, find a good recipe, and make it... More

My dad and I ate here on a weekend trip to Boston, there were so many options for places to eat but so happy we chose here! The fettuccini alfredo was some of the best I've had, reasonable portion sizes as well

We stopped in at this italian restaurant after an afternoon walking the Freedom Trail. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. There was four of us and we all enjoyed our dinners. We started off with stuffed meatballs and breshetta. Both of these appetizers were delicious, especially the meatballs. I had the Veal Marsala and my wife had... More

We just had the best time and great food here. We made reservations for 5 people at 7pm but part of our party was running late. That's always a little tense when they want to serve you but can't just leave tables empty. We sat at the bar and had a great red wine and meatballs at the recommendation of... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
