We use D.O.P. San Marzano tomato for all red pizza bases.
Our Fior Di Latte (fresh cows milk mozzarella), Buffalo mozzarella, Ricotta and Burrata cheeses are sourced from premium local manufacturers. Our selection of Salumi (cured meats) are from local producers unless otherwise specified. We hand-make our own pork sausages, preserved tuna, preserved tomatoes and pickled vegetables.
Open for lunch now yay!!!
As if it couldn't get any better! I've been waiting and hoping this amazing local would start opening for lunch and finally they did - oh my goodness, sooo happy! It is such a beautiful venue now right on the lake, the chefs know exactly what they're doing with a great selection of everything Italian and delicious, the service is wonderful and they fully cater for wimps like me with gluten issues. Not to mention the winter fire on the lake. Did I mention the food? I really want to keep quiet about this little gem but it deserves every star it gets. Love Love Love it - wish I could go every Friday!
Pizza Riccardo is amazing! The pizza is the best on the northern beaches! The Tiramisu is epic! We are regulars there it is our favourite place to eat out!
Fantastic in every way. Highly recommend. Had a great night with perfect service, food and company.
Great food and great staff. Haven’t had a bad meal here yet. I had the chicken spatchcock and my husband had the lasagne and we shred some fries - both meals delicious and served in a timely manner. This place is especially great in the summer when you can sit in the outside back area overlooking the lagoon.
Riccardos is our favourite pizza place! Their pizzas are amazing, so fresh and authentic. Highly recommend to anyone who loves pizza/italian :)
Amazing Italian food and a great vibe to the place
Best and only pizza I would recommend on the Northern Beaches – authentic and delicious. Just good food, good people and relaxed environment - you'd think that was a simple formula but few can pull it off like Rob & Alex at Pizza Riccardo. LOVE this place.
Great food great service consistently good every time we visit
Amazing food, the pasta was to die for the only negative was it is so extremely loud! Had to go before we would have liked to because we couldn’t hear each other
Food, service and warm fire all made for a very enjoyable evening.
This was the first time we had tried this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend. Great setting and vibe. Staff and service was excellent and so was the food. We will definitely return!
My second visit to Riccardo’s and the food was excellent (again), and sitting out the back as the late afternoon sun sets over the lake created a nice ambience.
The service was a little disappointing, with 5 meals being served at completely different times over a 25 minutes period, with no apologies or explanation given by the waiter.
This was our first time at Pizza Riccardo and we absolutely loved it!! The food, the service it was a 10.
Hope to visit again soon.
Took my daughter there for her Birthday. Loved every minute of it! We had delicious food, friendly service, and loved the atmosphere and view of the lake! Highly recommend.
We ate at Ricardo’s on wed 1 st May . The food was awful. We ordered 2 Margarita pizzas . Both arrived with charred black bits on the crust and bottom. Also we asked for mozzarella cheese and got buffalo . All you could taste was burnt dough.
The fire was on and it was very hot in there. The food and service was great!
Best gluten free pizza base I have tried. Nice place, good food and wine, friendly staff.
This was the first time I had been to the newly renovated restaurant. It was a wonderful all round experience. Customer service is always the most important factor for me, in rating a restaurant and tonight I gave Riccardos 10/10. Thank you. I will definitely be back.
Best Italian on the Northern Beaches! Beautiful fresh produce with everything prepared from scratch. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and the food and wine is a gastronomical treat. Highly recommend you share the experience.
Its a great family friendly restaurant with a menu to suit the little ones and the big ones. The back area of the restaurant is really wonderful with fabulous views of the Lake as the sun is going down.
Best pizza around. Tiramisu to die for. Highly recommended. Good kids menus too.
we have eaten at Riccardo many times but since the move the food is not as good as it was. On the last visit the croquettes were cool in the middle, not cooked long enough. Also the pizza was under cooked on the base so the oily salami made it very soggy. The lasagna was great. This restaurants tries hard but the food on the last occasion was not great. It would make me think twice before going again.
The most amazing pizza - absolutely delicious! Great friendly service.
Would highly recommend
Always great. We had a massive party next to us (not usually the case) but still a 5 star meal out!
Great food, nice staff but service was a bit slow. Would go back again.
Usually have a night here at least once a week since getting back to the beaches. On all occasions the service and food has been awesome.
Kids love the Nutella pizza- always a hit.
Food was lovely - particularly the spatchcock. Lovely staff who managed to provide a candle/sparkler for my birthday, despite not knowing beforehand.
Riccardos are really doing everything right! Fantastic local Italian spot and the new premises on the lake are brilliant! It's busy because it's really really great, so bookings are a good idea - our fave local for great food, great service, great ambience.
Food, when it finally arrived, was excellent. Mine came after the others as they got the order wrong. Couldn't understand how diners who arrived well after us were served food and drinks way before us. Would have preferred to take our own wine but no mention on the website that it was BYO, consequently we bought a bottle of Riccardo's - but it was very good. Will go back, but not on a Saturday night.
Best Italian on the Northern Beaches! The quality of produce is excellent.
spoilt by the presence of dogs during a dinner period.
Amatrician was tasteless - Spaghetti with prawns was cold.
the restaurant was recommended by a friend but unfortunately I wont be able to do the same.
Delicious food, friendly staff and a great atmosphere, definitely recommend it!!
We visit here as often as possible, this was our 1st visit to the new bigger , better premises. Food& service is always impeccable. Never disappointed!!
Highly recommend this place to everyone who loves good Italian nosh.
Always outstanding quality, one of the best traditional Italian pizza restaurants around, great environment, superb food, great service!
Service excellent, location out the back facing the lake is amazing. Food was awesome. Maybe some italian background music would really culture it up.
Great Pizza on the Northern Beaches, a must try for all!
Everything was fantastic, great food, fast service. Just had a screaming child next to us that kept smashing her fists on the glass at 9pm... you'd think the parents would've put them to bed.... but that's not Pizza riccardos fault I guess.
We loved our dining experience at Pizza Riccardo’s. We have been enjoying their pizza, pastas & desserts since they opened in Narrabeen 3 years ago. Great atmosphere, friendly service, fabulous wood fired sourdough pizzas with fresh ingredients and the creme brûlée is perfection! You’ve gotta try the Nutella pizza too! Yums! We will be back (again & again)
We loved the old Ricardo’s restaurant. The new restaurant is very noisy and it has now lost its ambience.
The pizza was good but we felt the antipasto platter was not as good as we have had.
The smaller restaurant had charm and maybe the food quality has been lost in the larger setting to accomodate more people.
