My husband and I had lunch at Ricci's one Saturday. We only wanted something light, but warming. I had the Hot Tub - light, tasty doughballs with a good amount of bolognaise sauce. Just perfect. It's the perfect place if you want great Italian food as an antidote to all the cream teas and traditional English Fayre! On top of... More

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...

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... More

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'. :-) More

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!

What a treat to have this little Italian to visit as a lunch stop on a misty winter walk this late January. A lovely warm cosy atmosphere and friendly owners welcomed us. A wide selection of pizzas with substantial vegetarian options, and our pizza when it came looked like a work of art … almost too good to eat. It... More
