I was very sorry to read Jacqueline's review for Christmas Eve dinner, and I do hope she will give Rico's another try. My husband and I have been going to Rico's at both lunch and dinner times for about 34 years, and the food and service never disappoint. It certainly is a tribute to them that they are so crowded....

We (the family) have been going to Rico's since the mid 80's and we keep going because the food and service is excellent. When you, enter the bar is on the left which is a good size, especially on the weekends when waiting for a table. It is very intimate quiet setting, a series of interconnect rooms, not a big...

We just got home from a funeral luncheon at Rico's. You know how funeral luncheons can be. This was totally sublime. Rico's took such tender loving care of the bereaved family and friends. I have been to Rico's before on several occasions and testify as to the fabulous food they have there. But today they outdid themselves and made the... More

Our family of 10 thought we would try a nice restaurant in our neighborhood for Christmas Eve this year. We typically go to a 5 star restaurant in Downtown or Mt. Washington. Prior to our visit we have heard good things about Rico's and also a member of our group attended a private dinner event at the restaurant and had... More

You see Rico's up on the hill. Everyone here gives great attention to the customers. They have a great wine list. You have to start with the zucchini. I didn't know this was so unique to Pittsburgh. I was thrilled to see rotolo on the menu. This was with spinach and prosciutto. Three servings. Delicious. I tried my friends Virginia... More

Ten of is ate at Rico's on Christmas Eve. The restaurant was absolutely crazy and I don't feel the staff could handle the crowd. Our waitress would disappear for 10 minutes or more at a time. My husband had to go up to the bar to get me a drink. Three out of the 10 meals were cold. We had... More

We had dinner here and it was really good. We tried the fettuccini Alfredo and others tried the fish. Both were very well prepared. Service was excellent. Prices are reasonable. We would definitely go back.

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
