Located in downtown Florence, Ricotinis serves up Italian fare at a reasonable price. It's a casual setting (exposed brick walls, booths and tables, upstairs and downstairs) that can be very loud when busy. The kitchen is open to view downstairs as is the service bar, which adds to the noise level. A lot of college kids work there (The University... More

One of the best places to eat in Florence and the place for Italian. Excellent dishes, great service, and a warm and cozy atmosphere. Everything we have tried on the menu has been delicious, so we keep coming back for more. The Eggplant Parmesan is exceptional and the desserts are outstanding. Highly recommended.

The food is wonderful. Whether its pizza or pasta you cant go wrong with whatever you eat. They bring herbs to mix with oil and dip with bread its great. I love the cheese ravioli in a creamy sauce.

We visited here with friends and had them try the world famous Tomato Cream for the appetizer. So wonderful a taste! Next we had Rotolo Di Pollo which was again such a delicious taste that just had a happy dance in your mouth! Our waitress, Taylor was spot on with recommendations and super in serving and pacing the meal well!... More

I visited the restaurant on a Thursday evening after work and was surprised at how crowded it was. The wait wasn't too long. The food was worth the wait. Outstanding. The wait staff were very friendly. The portions were huge. Get the melted cheese on top!

Ate there on a Sunday night and they were busy but got a seat quickly. Service was quick and food came pretty quickly. Food was hot, delicious and presentation was good. Would recommend this restaurant.

Ate with our daughter who coached at UNA. Great food at a cute location - the lasagna was fantastic. Order it with extra cheese on top (tip from waitress).

We had a group of 9 when we ate here so it took a little time to get seated, especially since prom was the same evening. The food and atmosphere is good. Very tight seating arrangements so if you are on the rotund side get a table not a booth. The bread and oil dip is good with free refills.... More
