The tortelloni al burro e salvia, taken from recipes handed down from generations, is handmade fresh daily and filled with ricotta, swiss chard and garnished with fresh sage butter. The tortelloni is one of our signature dishes and prepared exactly the same as in Italy.
With its original location in the hills outside of Florence, i Ricchi was the first restaurant to bring authentic Italian cooking from Tuscany to the sophisticated diners of DC. Learn about this extraordinary culinary journey, because the story is as good as the food.

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.
