We booked a table for 7 at 7.30 and was told yes it's okay and explained we couldn't wait around as we have elderly people with us. Arrive and we are told it's too busy so have to wait upstairs for 20 mins plus until another table empties. Why take any reservations if you can't handle the timings? Average place... More

Once again had a super meal on New Years Eve. I'm on a special medical diet and Rico always comes up with something super every time for me. So thanks again Rico. Heather and all the staff. See you soon

We booked Rico's at the last minute for my birthday. There were four in our group. We were going to go to a chained restaurant but I'm glad we didn't. It's a local family run business. The service was good and it had a nice atmosphere. There were lots of menu choices. The food was good and the portions too.... More

As a family we have been coming to Rico's for many years, yet never thought to write a review. Rico's has been providing authentic Italian cuisine in north Leeds for over 20 years and is run by Rico (in the Kitchen) and Heather who runs the front of house. When you go into the restaurant there is always a warm... More

Never fails to satisfy. Great for gluten free options. My friend from London couldn't believe either the prices or the portion sized!

Having eaten here many times I never bothered to leave a review as it was so local. The food is of a very good quality service fantastic staff excellent. If you want a quick meal please go to McDonald's as you are not rushed to leave Ricos. We had a lovely family meal last night and were there about three... More

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
