Awesome service, food, welcoming atmosphere! The staff are extremely friendly, accommodating & more than happy to go further than the extra mile. The portion sizes are even more generous than you'd expect from an authentic Italian, with the option for half portions. The menu range is extensive, with more on the specials board. I know many who have moved out... More

After hearing my girlfriend's family going on about this place, I finally went this weekend and wasn't disappointed. From the moment you walk in you feel very welcome and I felt the staff actually enjoyed their job, as everyone had smiles etc. The food came out really quickly and the garlic bread to start is really good. I went for... More

I booked an 18th birthday meal Monday 29 August for my daughter, after family and friends had "raved" about Rico's. We arrived at 6.00pm to be seated right along the side window, the sun was blazing through the window, no blinds or protection from the sun, which ruined the photos I had taken,and we found it difficult to see. The... More

This out of town venue has seen my family return on many occasions to celebrate birthdays and any other excuse to go back there. The staff there are amazing, attentive, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is plentiful and tasty and Oh my - the Spare ribs - sheer foodie heaven.

We have eaten at Rico's for many years ... But haven't written a review ...until now.... This restaurant has been part of Oakwood life for many many years and although aesthetically it is not the most attractive place.... If you want a really good pasta meal - then look no further .... If you want a relaxing, simple, old fashioned... More

Very friendly staff, excellent food, and with a real buzz. Good menu choice - Italian +, cooked beautifully and generous portions. There are half-portions for small-eaters and price is very reasonable.

I've actually been a couple of times now and been meaning to write a review as I've been that impressed. The food here is stunning, great value for money and the staff are all so attentive and make you feel very welcome. I love it here. The house red is fab too! Definitely go check it out!

We went here for my Grandaughter's 6th Birthday. The children love going there as the food is great. We have been going for years and it just gets better and better, It is a family run business owned by Rico and his wife Heather. Often their daughters help now, as does Kelly, and Issam and they have a lovely new... More
