It is 2014 and we have just celebrated 25 years at the helm of the DC restaurant scene! My 18 years in the Tuscan countryside fueled the passion, authenticity and the magic for i Ricchi that has earned us accolades and awards such as the Hottest Restaurant in Washington and One of the Best Italian Restaurants in the World. In an age of constant change and innovation, we deliver what people expect of an Italian dining experience: comforting, authentic, quality food. With a wine list that is 100% from Italian wineries, a wood-burning hearth that produces the signature taste of the Tuscan grill, and our updated twists on classic recipes, you will leave with an appreciation for the rustic country food of Italy. From the food, to the frescos on the walls, the original terracotta floors and antique olive oil urns, we want to transport you to Tuscany even if just for a little while.
Enjoy our new all-seafood menu (except for the dessert!) on Christmas Eve. We’ll offer our regular menu too, but you’ll want to check this out these delicious dishes – 7 seafood courses and a dessert for $69 per person. Call 202-835-0459 for reservations. Feast of the Seven Fishes Menu 2014
