Ricci’s is brilliant. The food is fabulous and the service is great. The only reason I haven’t given 5 stars for ambiance is because it was really chilly. Most people had their coats on. It was one of the coldest nights of the year but it really should have had the heating cranked up. It was a shame because it took the edge off a lovely night. It won’t stop me going back there though because the food (and that at Ricci’s Tapas) is the best for miles around.

We had a lovely meal - special Turbot with garlic mash, it was divine.
Our young waiter Travis was so attentive and enthusiastic - if you could bottle that you would make a fortune.
Always enjoy Ricci's - thank you

We were meeting a friend from Portugal who was staying at the White Swan and Ricci's Place was ideal. The food was delicious and it was quiet enough for my 100 year old mother to hear the conversation. I have already recommended it to a few people.

I have been coming here for a long time now and the standard of food is brilliant and consistently so.A menu I struggle to choose my favourites from-they are all equally good.Starters Of crispy prawns or squid,a main of beautiful hake or seafood pasta and finally my husband swears the Tiramisu is the best he has ever tasted.
Great dining is here!

As always, Ricci's was buzzing and we had a great time. Good food (the pastry on the mushroom wellington was a little heavy) but the sharing platters were fantastic. Good friendly service and a consistently good atmosphere!

Good food, good atmosphere and excellent service. Really enjoyed the visit. My only small complaint would be that they phoned me twice, Wednesday and Friday to confirm my booking. Small gripe. I would recommend either of the Ricci restaurants in Halifax

Magnificent breakfast, very reasonably priced for the quality, best scrambled eggs I've ever eaten anywhere in the world a sentiment echoed by friends who have also recently visited. Took my husband for a birthday breakfast and they made a real fuss of him which he loved. Just excellent

Close to Xmas so the place was rammed but the service was not compromised,; it really was very good.
Given the numbers being catered for the food was much better than I had expected.

Brought my husband to ricci’s for a late bday dinner as i’d Been before and really had a lovely time.
I really can’t fault the place. Food was brilliant! I throughly enjoyed my dinner and what was best is they had gluten free pasta in too so were able to adapt my meal choice to gf option.
The only down side was the service was a little slow but the restaurant was completely packed out. However when the assistants did come over to us they were really attentive.
I recommend Ricci’s to all. Food and atmosphere is great!! So is their sangria!!!

We've eaten here a number of times and had great meals. Unfortunately today wasn't as great. Partner had the Italian sausage and farro special. It was £16 and when arrived was far from what he was expecting. Thin slices of sausage which had little flavour. The mash and Farro was very watery and honestly tasted like porridge. Jus/gravy also very thin and lacking flavour. For what it was £16 seemed extortionate. Really disappointing given how much we've enjoyed Riccis Place previously.

Tasty food, good flavours, well cooked and served piping hot. My husband’s steak was full of flavour and he said the chips were good. My fish dish was innovative and tasty too. The restaurant had sold out of the wine we wanted and had omitted to tell us that at the beginning. Service was good but a little slow when we wanted to ask for extra bits and pieces & pay the bill. The music was, in our humble opinion, a bit too upbeat & fast paced for dining. Something a little calmer would be more conducive to a relaxing meal. Are we getting old???!

Excellent meal at Ricis seems like it's back to its very best. Shame it wasn't more full however that may be because it's near Christmas.
