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.
Fantastic local - always a delight in every possible way and situated so beautifully on Narrabeen Lake!
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
It is OK. Meatballs not as good as the last time I had them. Service slow, but apologetic. Very noisy
Amazing food and environment, super friendly staff and so reasonable!!!
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.
Another enjoyable evening at Pizza Ricardo with great food and friendly attentive staff!
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!
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.
Always great. We had a massive party next to us (not usually the case) but still a 5 star meal out!
Would highly recommend
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.
