Description: Ricci's Fine Italian foods is a sit-in CAFE and also a take-away. We strive to serve the best authentic Italian foods, at a fair price, in pleasant surroundings. We pride ourselves on freshness, cleanliness and a friendly atmosphere. Our Italian coffee is rated as the best by MANY customers.

Went along with my wife and 5 month old daughter on a Friday night, immediately after arriving for a weekend in Bakewell.

We're big foodies so bought a lot - a 10" pizza to start, dough balls and spicy bolognese, wonderful olives and for main we had 2 meat feast pizzas and a side salad.

It was all fresh, authentic fare and I would happily go again if the wife allows

The owners (a couple) were very hospitable and loved talking to us about the area, as well as entertaining our daughter. At no point was this intrusive, but in keeping with the warm welcome you'd expect in a small Peak District town

Stopped by for lunch and we were very pleasantly surprised. Whilst this is a small cafe style eatery the food and service are both excellent. The owners clearly take pride in what they do and deserve the high praise. Will look forward to returning when we are next in the area.

what another pleasurable visit to Ricci's. On our first visit we had the most delicious pizza's and excellent hot coffee. The coffee came in individual silver coffee pots which was good value and each pot served nearly two cups. On a trip to Bakewell with friends we called in for coffee and toasted tea cakes which came already buttered and hot. A good variety of snacks. The owners Les and Sue are very friendly and we were made to feel at home again. The cafe is very clean and has a wonderful friendly atmosphere. Would highly recommend a visit

Hi Chrisoo273,
Thank you for this review. I do wonder what we have to do though to get that last star, as it seems you were 100% satisfied? It's tough at the top, and that one star means a lot. Anyway, as my old schoolteacher used to say on my reports; 'must try harder'. :-)

Lovely friendly welcome excellent service pizzas and toasted sandwiches were perfection, spotlessly clean and bright place to relax at lunchtime on our birthdays, lovely chat with the owner too about holidays and good service

It's a small cafe tucked away in the middle of Bakewell, serving freshly cooked Italian food. The owners are always welcoming and friendly, and get my coffee on the go as soon as they see me coming!
