Tables of twentysomethings guzzling wines, date nights making merry, visiting parents taking their errant kids out for dinner – Riccardo’s easy-going formula and charming terrace (covered on colder evenings) certainly pulls in the crowds. This family-friendly trattoria has been going about its jovial business for well over a decade and the dining room’s rough-plastered interiors are starting to show their age, but no one cares when the kitchen can deliver the goods time after time. The jumbled menu looks to Tuscany for most of its good stuff, and prices are competitive – from excellent-value pizzas, gluten-free meatballs or tuna carpaccio to spaghetti with sun-dried tomatoes, steak tagliata or char-grilled fillet of venison with grilled courgettes. Separate tapas and vegan menus do their job, and the all-Italian wine list features several organic and biodynamic bottles. Home deliveries earn bonus points.
