Ristorante i Ricchi

At Ristorante i Ricchi, owner Christianne Ricchi re-creates the traditional Tuscan flavors of her family's trattoria in Cercina, Italy, where she honed her cooking craft more than 20 years ago. The resulting menu of handmade pastas, prime aged beef, and grilled seafood and fowl garnered the Insegna del Ristorante Italiano—a certificate of culinary authenticity—from Italian president Oscar Luigi Scalfaro.

In keeping with Christianne's Tuscan roots, the rustic decor at Ristorante i Ricci evokes the ambiance of a country villa. Terra-cotta tiled floors share warm hues with murals depicting garlands of greenery and trompe l'oeil architectural details. In the open kitchen, chefs sear meats with embers from the same oak-fueled flames that warm the dining room from the finished side of the wood-burning hearth. In the front room, floor-to-ceiling windows filter natural light through lush potted plants, giving the dining area a garden-like feel and–along with the complimentary valet parking for dinner guests–contributing to the relaxing atmosphere of a visit.
