Da Ricardos International Restaurant


by Stuart on Da Ricardos

Great quality meals. Good prices, good service. It doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't, but succeeds very well at what it is.

Called in on Sunday night, with no booking, and had the most delicious Garlic Bread, Oysters Kilpatrick, Spaghetti Bolognese and Gnocchi - all entrée size. Wine list was good and the wine we chose was very good (Brown Bros Shiraz). This was my first visit but my partner had been before. I was impressed that this local restaurant was so good. Décor was pleasant, tables spotless and attractively set and not squashed in. Service was excellent - and with a smile. This is not an upmarket restaurant but the prices were reasonable and the food better than average. Will definitely visit again.

This family run restaurant is a real surprise. Great quality food at very reasonable prices. The pastas are sensational, especially the calabrese (made with house cured salami) and the alla papalina. Sri Lankan curry is also a house speciality for those who don't feel like Italian on the day.

Nice quality local restaurant, very good prices. Very enjoyable. The staff and owners are very friendly. They get very busy, but attempt to cater for your needs as much as they can.

Was here for an 80th Bday and the Owners/staff were very very helpful with every aspect of planning to fulfilling details and delivering on the evening. A very good private area up stairs for functions such as this. Food was excellent very very good.
