I Ricchi

Last Updated: February 2021

Current Status: I Ricchi keeps chugging along.  Now in its fourth decade, the hearty Tuscan cuisine paired with slightly kitschy décor remains a standard-bearer.  They have used the large open space in front of the restaurant to create a heated, covered seating area.  Chef/Owner Christianne Ricchi put together food clubs of packaged pre-set 4 course menu for up to 8 people that change themes from week-to-week.  They are also doing pick-up and delivery.
