“Fine dining on Portland's southern rim has long been dominated by Riccardo's, with the smart Italian room and stylish patio along Boones Ferry Road. Shopworn standards such as Vitello Saltimbocca find liftoff with faltess, medium-rare veal medallions studded with fresh sage, Fontina and prosciutto; a two-fisted Spaghetti con Ragu arrives with Marche meat sauce. Few restaurants specialize in monocultural wine as does Riccardo's, it's library of Italian reds and whites an impassioned triumph. Fine bottlings from small producers wedge in among immortals such as Bruno Giacosa for a fraction of the price, making this the place, at last, to fuss over the right Barbaresco”.
- Len Reed, The Oregonian's Restaurant Guide 2006
