Riccio's Italian Restaurant is a popular restauraunt in Charlotte, North Carolina that has been serving people since 1962. One Yelp review raved about the food but did so even more about the service: It's unusual you find a "long standing tradition" kind of place that's "family run" but is also this friendly and this generous. Riccio's is all of that, and to top it off the food is phenomenal - easily the best in Charlotte. The waitress explained that our long wait was an aberration due to a whole flurry of pizzas that took up the oven right before we ordered. I don't think it's a common problem, and I can't complain after all they did for us. We will be back.
