I think, what we have here is a severe case of 'microwave snobbery'! IF you'd have (God forbid) asked me face to face about this, I would have explained. IF you'd have come on Trip Advisor and said the sauce was microwaved, I'd have explained...More

Came across Riccis by chance and were very glad we did. Fantastic freshly cooked food, generous portions and friendly service. The pizza was delicious. Dont pass this one by, must be one of the best places in Bakewell.

Ricci's has become a family favourite over the years. Visited again a week ago on an annual visit to the Peak District. Never disappoints. Small, friendly, tasty and excellent value. We recommend to anyone.

Stunning coffee, up there with the best and that there Les is a character. Always pleasant forever smiling and don’t get him on about photography and walks, you’ll never get away. Definitely my favourite place for a coffee and a chat.

We went for a meal after reading the reviews. This place is well worth a visit, the food is excellent and the owners very nice friendly people. You can take your own wine which is very nice too. We will definitely be going back.
