Da Ricardo’s is Mooroolbark’s premier BYO restaurant, offering a great dining experience every time. We prove that the CBD isn’t the only place to find delicious food and have made it our mission to bring eastern suburb locals a restaurant that is perfect for a big family dinner, a romantic dinner for two, or even a business lunch with clients and colleagues. We specialise in a warm atmosphere and friendly, attentive service, ensuring that you feel welcome and well taken care of at every moment.
We have made it our mission to bring the widest selection of Italian cuisine to people in Mooroolbark. Our menu is stuffed with dishes that cover the entire globe, from a Sri Lankan prawn curry, to the tastiest pasta and risotto outside of Italy. We use the freshest, local produce as often as we can, ensuring that your meal features the best ingredients and supports local growers and providers.
Other stand-out dishes on our menu are:
The kids get their very own menu, featuring spaghetti Bolognese, or chicken nuggets and chips. Both come complete with a soft drink, and ice cream with a choice of toppings for dessert.
Adults with a sweet tooth can indulge in tiramisu, crème caramel, sticky date pudding, and more.
In addition to being Mooroolbark’s best BYO restaurant, Da Ricardo’s is also available for functions and events of every kind. Make your occasion extra special with our food and beverage packages, warm atmosphere and convenient location. Whether you’re celebrating a wedding, birthday or anniversary with friends and family, or taking your team out for a corporate Christmas party or team building event, we can help. Our venue removes the hassle of heading to the CBD and features lots of parking for all your guests.
We are open Tuesday to Sunday for dinner and Thursday, Friday and Saturday for lunch, making Da Ricardo’s the ideal spot for a mid-week family dinner, a Saturday night date, or a relaxed Sunday lunch.

You can also use our online contact form and we will get back to you as soon as we can, or book online with Dimmi.
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.
