The atmosphere is great, rock and roll playing, friendly staff, and wonderful food! Definitely will visit next time I'm in Sarasota!
Very good Italian pizza. Good price & very nice Waitress.
Best pizza on the suncoast!!
The pizza is very good. And I've been to New York and Boca Raton
Really good pizza. It's more of a lighter pizza and the crust is amazing. Toppings were fresh and plentiful. Coming back when I'm in town
The menu boasts of the best pizza south of Jersey...well, Rico makes the stromboli ANYWHERE!
My new fav pizza place, tables can use a bit of better cleaning , but food is great.
Cool, good food. Bar, and privacy. You can pretty much do as you will here. I recommend. And the waitress was nice, and a sight for sore eyes. . I'm going back.
Upon arriving Gabby greeted me and had a great personality. She was also the server and she was awesome. She answered all my questions and was engaging, even with my 2 year old. My party got the chicken philly which tasted great and the bread tasted like it was baked that day. We also got the Gnocchi Bolognese which was simply put, yummy. I was in town from MD and I always like to go to local places. I will definitely be back next year. More...
Buena atención, grata experiencia con mis hijos y una pizza muy sabrosa.
Great pizza and cold beer, what else could you possibly need?
One of the best white pizza l had.
Peter James Wambold
18” works pizza and an order of wings..... SLAMMIN!!! Lakewood Ranch Location! Great job!
Wow!!! Wings garlic knots & pizza all outstanding!!!
Excellent NJ type pizza, great service...
I ordered delivery twice and they were very fast both times. The pizza and cheese steak subs are fantastic! I will definitely be ordering again!
Great pie! Great service! Funky, but fun staff.
Amazing Service, Great Food I Would Highly Recommend To Try It
Food was most excellent, but our waters tasted funny, switched to soda and everything was on point!
Great service and the food always delicious and fresh.. I would love to eat here every day ( Oscar)
Great food, great service. I like to talk in my mother language and servers were friendly and bilingual.
Great service, good food
Food was good , employees were nice , a little on the expensive side, for me for what you get.
Food is awesome. Service could be better.
Best calamari pizza in town
Fantastic food and awesome service! Could eat here everyday
Staff is very friendly and helpful. They have lots of gluten-free options and my pizza was very tastey.
Great place. Good pizza.
Marketing e Design Consultoria
very good service. Pizza surprised us. I'll be back!
Wonderful. Best pizza ever. Even better than New York.
Lea vee loves this place
Delicious NY Style pizza, friendly staff and great prices.
Yummy pizza the decor is very old style and basic which adds to the atmosphere
Good pizza and calzones
Armando James Collazo
Very good pizza
Delicious and fresh! Feels like a hole in the wall dive bar but the most tasty food.
Rico's is great! How I never reviewed this place I don't know. I lived in Sarasota for 3 years and this was always one of our favorite places to eat! Their service is great! Their servers have always been very helpful, friendly, kind and respectful. Their food is top notch. They did raise some prices while we lived there a couple years back but that is hapenning everywhere. The food is worth the cost and it was still on the more reasonable side for Sarasota. Their sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and salads are all wonderful. I recommend everything! and especially their antipasto salad, which is a love of mine! By far one of the best pizza shops in town there! More...
Good pizza, laid back,
Good service and food.
We always like going for a quick pizza and great food. Yummy PIZZA our son loves the garlic knots most of all!!
I live in Venice usually make the drive to Rico"s on Bee Ridge for Eggplant the best. Today stayed in Venice ate at Luna. had Eggplant rollatini awful. Nobody out of 5 enjoyed. from now on will make ride to Ricos More...
Best Pizza in town, it's that good.
Best white pizza in town. Cheap drinks and easy going atmosphere.
Great pizza, get it whole or by the slice and best price for best pizza I ordered. 2 slices which where of good size and it was around $6.
Sure it's not a perfectly set up sterile environment franchise, if that's what you want skip it , but if you like food like your family makes and great pizza in a comfortable low lit environment that feels more like you are at a big family gathering then go , chill out and eat some good grub, who cares if you saw a ant crawling or the video game wasn't plugged in or they don't change the fry oil everyday... Chill out people...enjoy life
Was delicious pizza, great staff, perfect location!
Very friendly staff, good pizza, very big
Great pizza and service!
Ana V Betancourt
One of the best pizza in town. It's all about the crust!!
Best authentic pizza I’ve had and fast service, pizza was ordered and ready in 20mins!!
The best pizza is Sarasota! Owner really works hard on his product and it shows
Orelvys Gonzalez Otano
Love the pizza kind and friendly service !
Great pizza and service. Very casual.
Good pizza and good service.
Best pizza I've had in Sarasota
Something happened that they forgot to make my pizza so the waitress brought me a garlic bread on the house before I even realized what had happened. These guys are great.
Good food and they deliver
Super good italian pizza

We have finally found our favorite pizza here in Sarasota! What amazing flavor and great service...will be back often!
In Sarasota for work by the airport and found this pizza spot. Highly reccomend for anyone who wants a salad, pizza, calzone or even just a simple beer & wings. It's an authentic Italian (Sicilian) resturant with amazing pizza. Full bar for cocktials. Good for single or groups to get food. Service was pretty fast. They also have take out! Glad i found this place. Best food around the area. Wish i found this place earlier. More...
Awesome pizza but don't go for your one hour dinner break
Very tasty. A little pricey. Good pizza and grinders. Was told the sicilian salad was great. And they deliver.
White pizza is the best around!
Pleasantly surprised by this little gem. Very decent pizza. MUCH better than ANY chain/delivery pizza joint.
awesome place and pizza!
Service was a little slow at first, but got better and the pie was fabulous...
Pizza was great the service was better.
Justin Guy Corley
Great food, friendly staff
The waitress was very friendly and always a smile. The food was delicious....was on vacation so it was a great find...
Great food and atmosphere but the guy in the back needs to not use his phone while preparing food... still going to eat there just not food he prepares.
Great pizza joint
Good food and really nice staff.
A Google User
You gotta try this. Amazing!
I go to Ricos often. It's a pretty good place. The food doesnt wow me but its clearly a step above many of the other options in the area. Their 2 slice lunch pizza special is a really good value. Overall this place is a winner. It is also a great place to go if you have a big group, there is always plenty of seating available. More...
Loved It! Pizza is Delicious!! Great Service!! Definitely one of My favorite
very good pizerria excellent service
Top notch toppings, plus vegan cheese.
Amazing food! Would totally come back...if only I lived in Florida!
Small dive of a place but service was great and pizza was perfect!
Lisa Campbell Crouch
Best pizza and pasta in Sarasota!! Always our go to place when we are there!! I highly recommend Rico’s Pizza and Pasta House!!
Jacob Van Valkenburg
Awesome New York style pizza, friendly staff, service was perfect! Satisfied my hungry guests.
If you're in Sarasota and want decent Italian, this is a great place. No frills, prices to match and great service. Excellent Stromboli.
White pizza with sauteed onions spinach and mushrooms. Thursday night pizza man is the best.
Great food and good service .
Best "NY/NJ style" pizza south of Jersey! We lived in NYC for almost a decade before moving down to Sarasota and Rico's is definitely our "go to" pizza spot.
Amazing pizza place. I tried my first Stromboli there (I recommend it, it was excellent). The bar area is clean and they play good music. The staff was very friendly as well and we received the food quickly. More...
Best pizza in the area for sure!
Great pizza and great staff!
Great local place! Friendly and old school dive bar meets great food! Be prepared to wait a bit, but the quality is worth it. Everything is made to order... Decent prices, colorful locals frequent here. And I'm always happy to see Isabella working, she's a definite gem! Great service and always a friendly smile! More...
Absolutely the best Calzone I have ever eaten, it's a small place close to airport
Went last night to have dinner with my family and got greeted by the friendly staff. I ordered a large pizza and loved it. Both the girls that where working where very helpful and nice. Definitely will be coming back for more delicious pizza! More...
I was recently in here and had a wonderful experience! Sat at the bar and had Gigi as my bartender and she was amazing! Tasty food, great drinks and an awesome environment. I love the pizza and the wings. I will definitely be back. Thank you! More...
Full menu, full bar. Food's good, people are great. Place hasn't changed inside since I was here last (13 years ago!).
Love the pizza
Pizza was fantastic...plenty, but still no leftovers. Fair price that didn't break the bank.
This is a great place with great food
As if we didn’t know the pizza was fantastic, the service was also above expectations. I came in the middle of what had to have been a rush, phone ringing off the hook, plenty of tables sitting, plenty of people coming in, and my server was basically unfazed by all of it. I can’t remember her name but she had short curly hair and really cool earrings. She was so polite and everything was faster than I expected, and she was just the sweetest to my 3 year old daughter, all in the midst of a seemingly busy night. More...
Excelente lugar para comer. Buena atención
Jackie Viggiani Mori
Best pizza in town!
Amazing pizza and service!! Never didsapointed.
Mackie Caviness Price
Good pizza, but thin bottom was too well done. Enjoyed salad and iced tea as well!
Awesome pizza great prices. The best!!!! Always pick this place if you want an amazing pizza!!
My wife and I were visiting the area and on the last full day of our stay we wanted somethiing with seafood that delivered (since it was pouring down rain). We ordered the Pasta Frutti di Mare, Sauteed Calamari, a veggie sub and cannoli for dessert (from the Tamiami Trail location). It was all "EXCELLENT" and the delivery guy was super nice and efficient. Whenever we make it back to this area we'll make a point to drop by and eat in. Kudos! More...
Tony Noletothedeath Davidson
Definitely the best pizza in Sarasota hands down! Amazing service and very friendly owner! Will definitely be back.
Good pizza.. good service
A large group enjoyed going here after Church on The Beach, Sat pm. Fun time.
I drive from NW Bradenton to the Bay Road location atleast twice a month just to get some pizza or pasta... Great food and great service. Would highly recommend
We frequent this place every year when we go to Siesta Key... The sign on the window states "best pizza south of Jersey." Well that is correct..nothing like folding a slice of cheese and mangia mangia..lasagna meatballs and sausage are exceptional..don't forget to try the broccoli rabe. More...
Ricos one of the best pizza shops in the state I absolutely love ❤️ the food the people and the service I'd recommend you go there asap " friendly staff great prices and the wine is great thanks for years of awsome food !!!
Jeff Guido Gueli
When you crave a great pizza this is the place! Mangia!
Super pizza! Great service. We loved it.
Every time I go, I know I'm going to get a quality pizza! Simply delicious. Also enjoy the mozzarella sticks. It's a super convenient pizza joint to bring the whole family to for Pizza Friday :-)
James Dean Flowers

Lisa Campbell Crouch
We can't wait to eat at the newest Rico's in Sarasota!! We love the other family owned locations!! See you soon!!
EXCELLENT and DELISH!!!!!!
Loved the thin crust pizza by the slice! Robust sauce and spicy pepperoni.
I am used to hardcore NY pizza and this one deserves honorable mention. It is possible to have great pizza outside of NY!!!
Marilyn Stacy Abate Alburger
The Pizza was excellent. Very very good. Never stopped to buy a single piece of pizza and this Pizza is very very good. Wonderful.
Jamie Saenz Thompson
AMAZING!!!! Great customer service, great food, and amazing atmosphere! Thank you from NLG team from NJ ���
St. Armands Rico's is fantastic! Sat outside with a white pizza that was delicious. Marinara sauce and homemade meatballs were the bomb!! We have to put them in our top five...we will be back! Small place, big taste. More...
Amazing customer service and very friendly. Super delicious! The stuffed shells and the cannolis are amazing! Had the perfect amount of tomato sauce and basil. They drizzled just the perfect amount of chocolate over them. This is my second time here and will be back for more! More...
Bobbi Hosmer Alonso
Love this place!! Great pizza, eggplant, meatball sub. Fantastic!!!
I ate at this place over 15 years ago and I was so excited to locate it again. Still as good as I remember, best pizza ever!
Our family tradition is to go to the beach and then go to Rico’s afterwards. We’ve been doing that for years and they never let us down! This time, I had mentioned that I now have strict dietary needs due to a new illness and they immediately offered gluten free and vegan options. I was so impressed! I will never forget the kindness and attention I received. Thank you, Rico’s! More...
Excellent place and delicious food, pizza, calzone, pasta, salads or desserts this place is my favorite and the staff super friendly, the owner gave us some delicious cookies yesterday when we went to eat there! Just simply love that place ! ��� More...
Great pizza and customer service with food allergy! When I first had my son I couldn’t eat dairy and had to be very careful about ingredients due to my son having dairy intolerance. I had ordered a “goat cheese” pizza and upon delivery realized there was also regular cheese; I called and they were totally awesome and understanding about why I couldn’t have the cheese and quickly had another pizza delivered to my house so I could enjoy my dinner with my family at no extra charge! Our favorite pizza place! More...
Colleen Lynch Halflants
Enjoyed a delicious calzone while watching the boys play pool! Good times!
Casual atmosphere, friendly service and the pizza was exceptionally good, nothing artificial about it! Glad Smuggler's Golf recommended you!
Service could be better sometimes, and the music is sometimes a little loud, but the food is good and the atmosphere chill
THE BEST PIZZA IN TOWN
Alex Drake Duval
Qualiy price is so good nice pizza and the guys are so gentil

Served by the best
Always eat here you cannot get better
Friendly staff, top notch pizza!!
I'm visiting from Asheville, NC and stayed at a hotel across the street. So glad I didn't order from a national chain. Buy local. Eat local!!
Rico's is a nice, neighborhood place to chill.
It has delicious pizza, friendly staff and clientele.
I live in Orlando but I always stop in when I'm in town.
Karyna and her coworker made me feel at home last Friday. More...
Very friendly staff, we ran in and ordered a Pizza � after a long flight and being out of town we didn't know where to grab a pizza. We stopped and was glad we did. Little waitress, blonde with braids helped us and got us out the door with a hot pie. Really really good pizza. More...
Victoria Nicole Wanda Minor
Had a blast with my 4 year old daughter. She got to make her own pizza��
Today was the second time I brought a large group from St . Petersburg to enjoy the great food and hospitality of Sal and crew. After visiting the Ringling Museum , 130 of us descended on this gem of Sarasota. For an hour I felt I was back in NY enjoying some mighty fine pizza in several varieties. I had one student with allergies and the staff was very accommodating . Service was flawless and Rico’ s will be our lunch spot when we are in town again! More...
Stopped in for lunch today at the N. Tamiami Trail location, and got half pepperoni n anchovies pizza. The waitress was good, friendly, nice, and what can I say cute. The pizza was good and hot. Prices are not to bad. The one only bad thing I can say is just dust stuff off. More...
Good pizza, service and quick service, I recommende this place.
Andre De Journette
Best pizza in town go grab a slice you won't regret it ;)
John Paul Abraham
The food is awesome, the staff is awesome!!!!! My only complaint is that they have Angel hair pasta on the menu but does not serve i
Rico's is my favorite place. Great food the best pizza in town. Friendly service and very fair price. Has been in business for at least 30 yrs or more.
Great pizza loved it .
Love there food. I think best pizza around !
Great lunch special. 2 slices and soda for $5. What's not to like?
Excellent pizza, calzones and service!!
Never lets me down! Love the pizza at Rico’s!
I would recommend this place to my friends and family. The staff are very friendly and personable and the cooks are awesome!
Wonderful food, big pirtions
Very friendly staff
Five stars for the food the server sucked tho and it wasnt even busy :(
I grew up in Newark, N.J., and frequented all the best pizzeria's in the NJ/NY metro area. Rico's is by far the best and the closest thing to what I enjoyed as a teen/young adult. I hope you enjoy it, too!
Probably my favorite pizza joint in Sarasota/Bradenton. Demetrio's does a great job, to be sure, but I love Rico's for feeling like a fusion of the great pizza parlors of my youth with a great local bar culture.It's the perfect place to order takeout, then show up and grab a beer while you wait.Bonus: Pizza by the slice! More...
Great service, great atmosphere, awesome calzones... highly recommend
Best pizza in town! And Gabi was such nice host. Thank you, girl!
Food was amazing. Service was slow
Great n.y. style pizza
Very special place.
very friendly good food and great price
Best Italian food in town
The food was great. Although we only had pizza slices, we've had pastas there before and they are excellent!
Good thin crust New York style pizza and better than average pasta all at a fair price!
Watched our pizza being made from scratch and made the way you want it very tasty
Sal good guy and Pizza great and great atmosphere check it out
It is a good pizza mom and pops type of place
Visiting from out of town & came here on a recommendation. It was definitely worth it! Very laid back atmosphere with great beer and thin crust pizza. Will definitely be back if we visit again. More...
Best pizza in SRQ. Great menu & great food.
Best pizza in Sarasota. We go to the one by the Ringling museum. Bar atmosphere but Nicholi makes the best pizza.
Best Pizza in Sarasota. You guys are killing it

Great is the only word that comes to mind
Corey Bruce Snowman
Someone has been posting negative reviews for your place. Wanted to let you know. He’s doing it on TripAdvisor too. It’s the fat pizza midget from Jersey.
Pizza was Good!
Such good food and great service. A Sarasota favorite!
Love the food and service it was my first time but not my last
Best not cheap but worth the money
Ok good. Pizza is good and pasta dishes are ok. Nothing special but nice staff, good prices, and fast service.
I visited the North Sarasota location. Excellent food and service was superb.
I've had the pizza and the stromboli and both were delicious
Great service. Great pizza! Very busy. Long wait. But well worth it!
The white pizza here is FANTASTIC!! Definitely try it if you stop by. We weren't as impressed by the Margherita pizza, though. Still giving 4 stars because the white was the best I've ever had. More...
Love everything about this place! The pizza was great and the garlic knots are put of this world! Definitely will be back!! If you haven't tried this place you need to grab some friends and family and go! We always have a great time and the employees are fun and friendly as well. More...
Best pizza in North Sarasota.
Great pizza. Great bar. Never too busy. Free pool
All I can say is AMAZING! Everything from the pizza to the pasta is delicious. Service is always on par (Stephani and Paulette were attentative and extremely personable). The owner Sal is beyond kind, and makes you feel like you are a family member in his own house. Literally the best pizza I have ever had! More...
Bonne pizza, serveuse gentille
Very nice and pleasant staff pizza was also delicious
last night was my first time at ricos. and a teenage boy helped me with the menu, and helped me pick out my new favorite item
Great place to eat. They hand toss the dough
MR. MICHAEL ANTONIO REAVES
Awesome people are food ! Pizza was really good and the garlic dots were out of this world!
Nice bar and pizza place. Friendly, helpful and eager to please staff. Took a little while for our pizza to come out, but it was well worth the time - from the taste, they make everything fresh when you ask for it. Really good.
Quick service with a smile. Pizza ok but not special. Could use a better selection of draft beer.
Very accommodating, delicious food, relaxing atmosphere, friendly service, and decent prices for fabulous food!
Gabby greeted me with a smile and a friendly hello as soon as I walked in. She recommended the carbonara. It was creamy and deliciously made by Ralph. Very satisfying! Andrew was very helpful by providing excellent service as well! More...
Hands down, the best pizza in Sarasota. They staff is really friendly also
Great place to go for food. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere reminded me of an old school bar. The food was great. I had the chicken cacciatore and would recommend it to anyone. More...
Id love to have nowwww
Great pizza and menu. Fast and friendly
Great pizza n drinks
Jeanne Marie Viviani
Always friendly staff and good eats!

Great neighborhood joint.
Sarah Fabiola Rodriguez
Always a wonderful experience! And Gabby is amazing ❤️❤️
Fave pizza place in this city! Sarasota is our family’s vacation spot since the 80’s
Went there for Dinner Tonight Amazing Homemade pizza
Staff was very nice. Make sure to get a side of ranch for your buffalo chicken pizza!
Excellent service and food and cold beer
I'm a picky eater and always add extra instructions to my orders. They've always gotten my special orders right and it's always delicious too!
Great place for a quick lunch, pizza is fantastic!
Best pizza around
Best pizza south of New Jersey.
Great little place, with fantastic food and wonderful/friendly service!
Pintoresco.Muy buenas pizzas y cervezas
Nice, good food, nice attendance to their customers providing excellent service in a timely manner, a small but comfortable place to enjoy a good old time with family and/or friends
We love Rico's!! We eat here every trip to Sarasota!! Awesome people and the best pizza!! I highly recommend!!
Beer me why not
Great pizza, great staff. Dirty bathrooms.
Willow and Finn
We go there a lot and we really enjoy it there it's our go to place and they know us there it's an amazing restaurant and I highly recommend it
Absolutely love this place. Food is always good and the atmosphere is totally relaxing! Michelle Hawn
James Marshall McKay
Great service. The girls who run the place are super cool and really down to earth
AWESOME place great food,great people,great place I totally recommend it 15/10 loved the experience.
Pizza is awesome and if you order delivery they are quick
Good fresh food and the customer service was excellent
Hreat food great service
Great food at a decent price. Fast friendly service.
Always good...busy but worth the wait!! Too many favorites!
Juan Carlos Garcia
Great and delicious pizza!!! Great Service by Jenn 100% recommended
Great place to go for a relaxing dinner. Fantastic waitresses and waiters. �
Best Pizza and Wings EVER! Oh and the service is excellent ! Highly recommended restaurant to eat with the family, or simply by yourself .
Best pizza in town. Real NJ pizza, thin crust and lots of cheese.
Chicken parm is the best!! Very large portions. I Have loved everything I've tried there. Amazing staff and owner!
I love Ricos! So does my two year old daughter, the White Pizza is her favorite! If it wasn't for Ricos and their pizza or I'm not sure if my kid would ever eat... such cute family memories that will last a lifetime, thanks for being part of it Rico's! More...
Just had delivery for the whole fam while we watch football. Food delivered hot, executed perfectly, and presented well. Polite driver with excellent delivery time. More...
Love this place been going here for many years, always great food and service.
I loved the cute Italian waiter with the white g shock watch ����
Pete makes the best pizza...hands down
Good pizza, great wings and a decent price.
Real Italian recipes.... the food is excellent. Take out and delivery is offered. I ordered chicken parmigiana for dine in.... it was the best that I've had locally. ... great, fast service also More...
All the northerners told me it was tbe best. I had the white pizza twice. Enjoyed both times. Did to-go , so I can't really remark on service. But I plan to try some more things on menu. More...
Despite what other reviews may say this place has good food and I would certainly recommend it and have to others. Too many people scapegoat their days frustrations on hardworking locally owned business over minor inconveniences. Any concern I have had has been made right and that all you can expect. If your looking for a casual place you can grab a beer and a couple slices after work, or quick bite to eat with your girl or buddy, this is a great spot. Its well managed and the staff has always been friendly and attentive. Best slice on the north trail. More...
Great pizza, great calzones. This is our family "pizza and movie night" place, and I recommend it highly. Also good for a cocktail!
The great!! Came in before closing. Very good food and people thanks. :)
Sal runs the best place in Sarasota...try the white pizza it's amazing! Go there!
Good place I have to say it's not bad at all
The best pizza place in Sarasota
