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.

First time there and will return in the future. The back room was quite noisy, not sure what u can actually do about it. Menu was well put together with plenty of options. Pizzas are tasty, service was fine. Thanks

Fantastic Italian food in a wonderful location over looking the lake. Lovely fireplace in the winter and open air in the summer. This is just what the northern beaches needed.

Fabulous food !!! Great service ! Lovely venue ! Great atmosphere !!

But the NOISE !!! We couldn't talk to each other, we couldn't think properly. We booked for 6pm thinking it wouldn't be too crowded. However, everyone obviously loves you, which is awesome -- Congratulations!!!

We had the meatballs, the zucchini flowers, the roasted cauliflower and the rocket and pear salad to start...all absolutely delicious. Then we shared a Cappricosca Pizza...sooooo, so good !!!
We love BYO places and we brought a bottle of bubbly to celebrate my mum in law's 90th birthday ! Perfect !!
We will definitely be back, but at 5pm...and in Summer it is probably quieter with the screens up.

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.
