Riccardo started his career at a very young age in Milan's prestigious GIRARROSTO which was family owned. Then, in 1982 he moved to the United States and he opened the famous Sonny Bono's in Los Angeles. In 1987 he started to work with his cousin Roberto Ruggeri (owner of Bice Ventures), with him he opened Bice New York, Los Angeles and many others around the world.

Here through the craftsmanship of an Italian food connoisseur, dishes are prepared with an almost zen-like essentiality that has shaped Riccardo's professional and existential life course.

In addition to its exceptional cuisine, Riccardo Osteria has a wonderful selection of classic cocktails & wines to complement our dishes perfectly. Come join us at the Bar for a meal or just a glass of wine.

Highlights of the menu include Lamb Shank, Mixed Grilled Seafood Plater, Bucatini Carbonara, Linguini Vongole, assorted Risotto and Veal Scallopine, and for dessert Classic Tiramisu & Chocolate Lava Cake.

    Great spot. Excellent menu choices nice and bright and lively for summer Saturday night. Windows open on sides making it more al fresco. Only downside is occasional run of the Lake Street el line that creates some noise, but that’s part of the ambiance. Recommend for a solid Italian and creative menu with no pretense in the West Loop.

    Fantastic server. Delicious food. Earlier it was a great volume. As more folks came, became a little louder, but still manageable. The music was at a perfect volume (low).
