Our bases are naturally leavened using Caputo flour, imported from Italy, and allowed to prove for 24-48 hours.
We use D.O.P. San Marzano tomato for all red pizza bases. Our Fior Di Latte (fresh cows milk mozzarella), Buffalo mozzarella, Ricotta and Burrata cheeses are sourced from premium local manufacturers. Our selection of Salumi (cured meats) are from local producers unless otherwise specified.
We hand-make our own pork sausages, preserved tomatoes and pickled vegetables.
The Food is delicious - one of the best mushroom pasta I have ever had and the dough of the pizzas is incredible
The food was amazing as well as the staff, best pizza I've had.
Already recommend to friends and will return for more pizza!
Love Pizza Riccardo :-) Food is consistently good and a warm, welcoming environment!
Amazing Italian food! Would definitely recommend it.
Great food as usually, highly recommend this place to all, staff are friendly food amazing don’t forget to book
Brilliant food and service...not rushed, food very special and friendly helpful staff.
The menu is really tempting and the food didn’t disappoint. Good wine list and service. Good find.
The food and atmosphere was very nice. Service was a bit slow but still a very pleasant experience.
Amazing authentic food! Good value and BYO wine! Great service every time
The food was beautiful and delicious as always.
Friendly and helpful staff always add an extra point on top of our dinner.
Highly recommend and I'll be back very soon.
Delicious food, good service and plenty to chose from
Excellent italian food and service. Can't fault it.
Fantastic local - always a delight in every possible way and situated so beautifully on Narrabeen Lake!
First time there and will return in the future. The back room was quite noisy, not sure what u can actually do about it. Menu was well put together with plenty of options. Pizzas are tasty, service was fine. Thanks
It is OK. Meatballs not as good as the last time I had them. Service slow, but apologetic. Very noisy
Amazing food and environment, super friendly staff and so reasonable!!!
Fantastic Italian food in a wonderful location over looking the lake. Lovely fireplace in the winter and open air in the summer. This is just what the northern beaches needed.
Fabulous food !!! Great service ! Lovely venue ! Great atmosphere !!
But the NOISE !!! We couldn't talk to each other, we couldn't think properly. We booked for 6pm thinking it wouldn't be too crowded. However, everyone obviously loves you, which is awesome -- Congratulations!!!
We had the meatballs, the zucchini flowers, the roasted cauliflower and the rocket and pear salad to start...all absolutely delicious. Then we shared a Cappricosca Pizza...sooooo, so good !!!
We love BYO places and we brought a bottle of bubbly to celebrate my mum in law's 90th birthday ! Perfect !!
We will definitely be back, but at 5pm...and in Summer it is probably quieter with the screens up.
Another enjoyable evening at Pizza Ricardo with great food and friendly attentive staff!
Pizza base without a doubt the best I’ve ever had. Great kids meals and our son even said it’s the best pizza he’s ever eaten. The service was excellent. Ricardo’s is our new family favourite restaurant and we look forward to our next visit.
Most enjoyable lunch, we shared several plates, all of which were excellent- one of us had been before so had some knowledge of menu. We both sat on one side of the fixed benches as sun was directly in eyes facing the lake- a filter blind would have been ideal. The benches seemed a little high for the table we were at, otherwise a delightful lunch and we shall be back.
Open for lunch now yay!!!
As if it couldn't get any better! I've been waiting and hoping this amazing local would start opening for lunch and finally they did - oh my goodness, sooo happy! It is such a beautiful venue now right on the lake, the chefs know exactly what they're doing with a great selection of everything Italian and delicious, the service is wonderful and they fully cater for wimps like me with gluten issues. Not to mention the winter fire on the lake. Did I mention the food? I really want to keep quiet about this little gem but it deserves every star it gets. Love Love Love it - wish I could go every Friday!
Pizza Riccardo is amazing! The pizza is the best on the northern beaches! The Tiramisu is epic! We are regulars there it is our favourite place to eat out!
Fantastic in every way. Highly recommend. Had a great night with perfect service, food and company.
Great food and great staff. Haven’t had a bad meal here yet. I had the chicken spatchcock and my husband had the lasagne and we shred some fries - both meals delicious and served in a timely manner. This place is especially great in the summer when you can sit in the outside back area overlooking the lagoon.
Riccardos is our favourite pizza place! Their pizzas are amazing, so fresh and authentic. Highly recommend to anyone who loves pizza/italian :)
Amazing Italian food and a great vibe to the place
Best and only pizza I would recommend on the Northern Beaches – authentic and delicious. Just good food, good people and relaxed environment - you'd think that was a simple formula but few can pull it off like Rob & Alex at Pizza Riccardo. LOVE this place.
Great food great service consistently good every time we visit
Amazing food, the pasta was to die for the only negative was it is so extremely loud! Had to go before we would have liked to because we couldn’t hear each other
Food, service and warm fire all made for a very enjoyable evening.
This was the first time we had tried this restaurant after a recommendation from a friend. Great setting and vibe. Staff and service was excellent and so was the food. We will definitely return!
My second visit to Riccardo’s and the food was excellent (again), and sitting out the back as the late afternoon sun sets over the lake created a nice ambience.
The service was a little disappointing, with 5 meals being served at completely different times over a 25 minutes period, with no apologies or explanation given by the waiter.
This was our first time at Pizza Riccardo and we absolutely loved it!! The food, the service it was a 10.
Hope to visit again soon.
Took my daughter there for her Birthday. Loved every minute of it! We had delicious food, friendly service, and loved the atmosphere and view of the lake! Highly recommend.
We ate at Ricardo’s on wed 1 st May . The food was awful. We ordered 2 Margarita pizzas . Both arrived with charred black bits on the crust and bottom. Also we asked for mozzarella cheese and got buffalo . All you could taste was burnt dough.
The fire was on and it was very hot in there. The food and service was great!
Best gluten free pizza base I have tried. Nice place, good food and wine, friendly staff.
This was the first time I had been to the newly renovated restaurant. It was a wonderful all round experience. Customer service is always the most important factor for me, in rating a restaurant and tonight I gave Riccardos 10/10. Thank you. I will definitely be back.
Best Italian on the Northern Beaches! Beautiful fresh produce with everything prepared from scratch. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and the food and wine is a gastronomical treat. Highly recommend you share the experience.
