At Pizza Riccardo our bases are naturally leavened using Caputo flour, imported from Italy, and allowed to prove for 24-48 hours.
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.

Pizza base without a doubt the best I’ve ever had. Great kids meals and our son even said it’s the best pizza he’s ever eaten. The service was excellent. Ricardo’s is our new family favourite restaurant and we look forward to our next visit.

Most enjoyable lunch, we shared several plates, all of which were excellent- one of us had been before so had some knowledge of menu. We both sat on one side of the fixed benches as sun was directly in eyes facing the lake- a filter blind would have been ideal. The benches seemed a little high for the table we were at, otherwise a delightful lunch and we shall be back.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
