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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We have been dining at Ricardo's since they opened 3 years ago and we have never been disappointed; food, service and environment are fabulous! My partner and I are very close to European food And this place does not have nothing to envy to an Italian pizza restorante in Napoles! We just love it and enjoy every time we are at Ricardo's!

We usually get take away pizza from this restaurant as they are fantastic but decided to eat in at the new larger restaurant a couple of doors down from the old one. Great restaurant with seating out the back overlooking the lake. Food as usual was amazing and was great to sit in and try other items they have on offer. We had the antipasto platter which was delicious. The service is always fantastic and great vibe in the restaurant. Will be back very soon!

They upgraded to a bigger venue and it looks like they are struggling with bigger volumes. Pizza was rushed and not cooked all the way through “yes I am aware that it’s a southern Italian style pizza” as I explained the waiter, but at least the overpriced wine was good!
