Michelle was a fantastic server!
Great food. BlackBerry Sidecar complimented pizza very well.
The service was quick, attentive, and friendly. I had the Quattro Primavera pizza which was fantastic. I've loved everything I've had there.
All you can eat pizza buffet very famous! Good brick oven pizza and cannolis!
I haven’t eaten Richetta’s pizza for years. We decided to stop in before a going to the movies. Very cozy family friendly place. I decided to have their buffet and I have to say the food tasted great. The variety of pizza just depended on what was coming out of the oven. Every slice I had was great!! The reason I didn’t give 5 stars was service was a little slow (drink refills) and well as you see from the pictures the pasta selection the whole time I was there didn’t look the best. It was barely there and they never refilled it. That being said I Would definitely go back. The Pizza is great !!
Extremely understaffed today. Had our order taken in a reasonable time frame, but then didn't receive our drinks for 20 mins. and my salad w/salmon took another 10 min. to appear. I had difficulty flagging down our waiter to send the salmon back for finishing cooking. I didn't feel like tempting fate by eating sushi. The restrooms were very wet and dirty. Staff was stressed and inefficient. The food tasted good, so 3 stars. But if you want the complete experience to be positive, go elsewhere.
Great pizza. A little more expensive than other options but very good.
Pretty decent reasonably priced lunch buffet.
The pizza buffet at lunch is the gold standard of lunches the Portland area. My favorites are the white pizza and the apple dessert pizza.
The best pizza
Went with friends and had the pizza buffet. Decent selection of pizzas, some soup/salad, and cannoli for dessert. Not spectacular but good. They will take requests for specific pizza varieties and let you know when they are put out. Our waiter was attentive and friendly even on a busy holiday evening.
It was great food and service. They have free refills and nice people working there.
The buffet is where it is at. The food is good but not anything spectacular. Staff is friendly. Atmosphere is decent.
This place has verity of pizzas, soup buffet, you can customize your order to deliver to table, they bake in brick oven and give it you. It's an excellent place for single, family, friends together, nice beer beverages as well.
Great service, buffet was well stocked and attended
Very good food. Bring your wallet though.
The lunch buffet is the best
Top notch pizza. Decent service. Good beer that gets to the table quickly. Good atmosphere. Like the building. This is one of the best pizza places I have ever been to, and their pizza is second to NONE
During day very relaxed with nice buffet. Nights loud. Cooks tell fir the wait staff. A but noise for me in the evening.
Best place for pizza buffet. Great selection and the staff is very friendly. Food is amazing and we make this a weekly visit.
Nice ambience, nice wait-staff, quick service (especially for a group of 17 people!), great salad, great pizza; the risotto was a little underwhelming - not bad, just kind of bland. Nice wine.
Fantastic pizza !
Very delicious gourmet pizza. The waiter was great!
Nice menu friendly service. Can get loud
Ricettas is a great brick oven pizzeria. The staff is gteat but Josh is the best
Nice little pizza place
This place has become a staple for us. There's always something tempting to try. The gluten free menu offerings are abundant and delicious. You will not be disappointed in the cauliflower pizza crust!
Fantastic dining , plenty of seating , great service , wonderful selection of craft beer.
Stopped in for a bite and was pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food is. it's not all just fancy pizza, they have some nice entrees. I opted for the mussels appetizer as an entree with the caprese salad. The mussels were perfect and the sauce delicious, server with two huge slices of garlic bread, which I devoured instantly. The caprese was enormous! And delicious, was enough to share with my son. My son had lasagna which was served also with garlic bread rolls. It was a giant portion of lasagna slathered in melted mozzarella. We at every bite of all the food. The venue was clan, open and airy and not loud, we were able to have a conversation at a normal voice level.
Great food and service. My drink was a little too strong but that's not always a bad thing.
Sorry but for $10.00 I'd expect more then burn pizza and salads that was so gross looking i wouldn't try it!! Sorry i won't return or recommend that anyone else eat there either
Pluses and minuses mark this place. Cesar salad with anchovies and desert pizza excelled. The lunch buffet of a variety of pizzas is a great idea. However, sitting around under a heat lamp dried out every one of the types I tried. Taste was minimal. A shame. Endless raspberry iced tea was another plus.
Great for my family who loved it, but hard for a diabetic looking for low carbs...the bane of every Italian place.
Like most restaurants this one is not what it used to be. But if you want the great pizza this is the place to go!
This is a great place to take the kids on the weekends. Their all you can eat pizza bar is awesome. You can request your favorite pie, the non-alcoholic drinks are bottomless and the staff are quite friendly.
Good quick lunch..terriffic pizza sauce
We used to go regularly, a Maine staple. When they changed the menu it was disappointing -- some beloved pasta dishes went away, and many of the replacement entrees simply aren't as good. We don't dine here very much any more as a result. The personal pizzas are good, and what I recommend if you go. Wait staff is always polite and professional. Dining room is very loud with the open kitchen, high ceilings, and chefs shouting.
Great place. Very clean and friendly service. Best Antipasto Board I've ever seen.
Had the buffet ..I found it very bland.. not on my list of places to go again, unless I try my own personal pizza.
The pizza was amazing. Especially the eggplant pizza. Highly recommend for their pizza. We also had the salmon and you get what you expect for fish at a brick oven restaurant.
The cook must have forgotten to add seasonings to our pizzas. We ordered two different ones and we were disappointed in both. They were tasteless which I would have thought impossible given the ingredients. Even the garlic was dull. We will not go back. In fact we took the pizzas home, and added some salt n pepper with a pinch of oregano. Let the leftovers sit in the fridge for 3 days, reheated and found that was exactly what was missing. Wish that had been added originally.
I loved the pizza buffet at lunch! Lots of fresh pizza, don't forget to try the apple pie pizza (pizza pie?)! If you're into interesting pizza, they have several varieties I haven't tried yet, if you're into plain pizza, they have normal cheese, pepperoni, and stuff like that! I do recommend trying the fancy cheese pizza, though. Very delicious!
Pasta was cold and stiff with two separate pasta meals. My chicken caprese sandwich had no flavor. I can only recommend pizza....do not waste your money on any other dish they make...I'm sad to say i wasted $78.00.
Love the atmosphere and my favorite pizza
Nice place to meet with a group. Buffet is decent.
The has always been great and the service outstanding. Great “non chain restaurant “ food.
Love the selection of pizza at the lunch as well as the salads and soups
Stopped here late one night after a work gig. Fire roasted crust and pizza done right.
Excellent food, great service and a casual environment. Lunch Buffett is great for a quick lunch when you just don't want fast food, and their full menu at dinner has lots of great choices.
Great service and good section of foods for gluten free !
We go for the $11 pizza buffet. You can ask for a puzza to be made for thr buffett. I als had very good corn chowder (from the buffett) today. If you are not already full, ask for some rolls.
Wonderful buffet! Chili, pasta, sauce, pasta salad, about a dozen different pizzas coming out regularly, apple pie pizza, cannolis. Yum. Gluten free options too.
I was surprised by their buffet. They had a large selection of everything and the food was excellent! The buffet was fresh and not what I expected when it comes to most places that have buffets. The service was also good and the servers were attentive. The price point is really good and affordable.
Try the Buffalo Chicken pizza
Everything looked so good. I had salad with some blood orange vinaigrette. Yum. Then the cauliflower crust pesto pizza. Amazing.
Best time to go, for all us pigs, is all you can eat pizza at lunch.
Food is quite good. Mussels are very good. The problem is the bartender. Tues night was an eye opener. She didn’t write anything down and she was overwhelmed. Martini was horrible. My friends captain and coke was scotch. Couldn’t get ice. My friend pointed to and verbally ordered rigatoni ricetta. Got chicken parm. Very disappointed but maybe just a bad night.
Great lunch buffet
Great food!! The guy at the buffet restocking the food was a bit rude. He would reach in front of you to grab the pan as you took the last piece before you could put the spatula down onto the pan. Otherwise supper pizza.
Food was delicious, as well as the Cranberry Thyme Martini, would definitely go back!!
I have been going here for years. I highly recommend the create your own pasta for a good, affordable menu option with a high probability of leftovers for lunch the next day. Good beer and bar selection. Staff always attentive, even when the place is busy.
Food is okay they will charge you dinner pricing at lunch unless you speak up for yourself
You cannot beat their Pizza Buffet it is fantastic, you go up and tell him what kind of pizza you like to try and they put it on the pizza line. Quality of their futures being a thin crust is just so tasty the mushroom pizza is very very good. They're Formaggio is as good as you'll get in the country I think
Had the meat lasagna. Excellent. Also had the soup if the day chicken mushroom vegetable. Again excellent. The dessert tiramisu was also good.
Had the buffet. Pizza and salad were yummy. Brick oven, so crust was perfect. Good beer and wine too. I would go there again.
Nice place to eat, good food.
We enjoyed the pizza buffet. Plenty of varieties and they made something specific for one of my kids who had a special request. The salad on the buffet line was not the best however everything else was very tasty. We will definitely go back, it was a good overall experience and reasonably priced.
Just picked up a Fettuccini Alfredo to go. With a tip for the hostess, cost almost $19. For my money I got a bowl of pasta with just a whisper of Alfredo sauce that was as tasteless - and the texture of - wallpaper paste. If I didn’t have salt in my car, it would have been inedible. The two white rolls (no butter) did not make up for this expensive disappointment.
Fantastic service. Our waitress checked on us frequently, but not too much. She was always happy to get us what we need. The food was excellent, and there's something for everybody. Can't wait to go back.
Best pizza I have ever had.
Really good pizza
Excelent food, and excelent staff I LOVE IT, I'll be back soon to have a lunch with my GF☺
Marilyn was great, pack the place full of complacent hungry and thirsty consumers of great food and drink. Check out Saco this summer.
More like Regretta's. Limp greasy "brick oven" pizza. I got the buffet. Soggy Salad, Bland pasta "Salad" was really just pasta. Staff was supper good, the only reason it got two stars. Pizza hut is this places equal, but cheaper.
Great variety of pizza, grilled meats and vegetables, salads, pasta, and local beers.
Continues to be one of the very best pizzas available in the Portland area. Great atmosphere and service too. Pizza prices are getting a little on the high side at $22 plus for large specialty pizzas, but it is still worth it.
Was not impressed with the chicken wings. Interesting buffet that is well worth the money and the pizza is ok.
The fungi pizza was one of the best pizzas I've ever had.
Nice atmosphere friendly service and good pizza
It is wonderful place for group or individual gathering and especially food, unbelievable! Wide verity of custom pizzas, bewarage, entries, desserts, lot more.. can't wait to visit again..
Very friendly wait staff and the food was good. We have the calamari app, personal pizza and chicken parm. Tasty!
Not as good as they used to be
Great lunch time buffet! Only $10, worth $20. All their best pizzas.
Good food and nice atmosphere. A little pricey but not awful. Made for an excellent date night.
Drinks were good, brick oven pizza was not the best-the bacon was just basically whole strips of bacon, rather than cut up small pieces which in my opinion are better.
DELISH! I love the pizza buffet!!
I'm a longtime visitor who has visited all times of day, with people of all ages. As a Google Guide expert reviewer they ask me, "What can visitors expect?" The answer is simple. Expect to be amazed! Premier service with spectacular food, unique ingredients, exquisite flavours, and they even have a lunch buffet that will knock your socks off. Stellar all around.
Love this place!! This is a go-to restaurant when our family is trying to decide where to eat. Food quality has remained high over the 8 years we have been foing there. Great family atmosphere.
The buffet was great today and the apple pie pizza tasted just like apple pie. We had it for dessert.
Excellent buffet lunch. Fresh salads, many kinds of freshly made pizza. GREAT accommodating wait staff.
Ricetta's has become our go-to place, above all others, no matter what the occasion is. We've enjoyed Ricetta's exceptional lunchtime buffet scores of times, organized my sister's college graduation dinner there (which was celebrated beautifully), participated in Ricetta's pizza recipe contest - and most often, we order take out every time we are headed for a picnic on the Eastern Prom in Portland or a quiet picnic at home. If I could only eat one thing the rest of my life I would, without any doubt, choose Ricetta's pepperoni pizza (their rolls and house Italian dressing would be my next two choices) for sure! The staff members seem born to make you happy - and it works!! Management knows their regular customers by name and treat you like royalty. Ricetta's is a winner! Always a culinary pleasure.
Good food but on the pricey side.
The pizza lunch buffet was really good.
Love that they have a pizza buffet, I always want to try something different, so it makes my decision easy when I can get a couple different options at one go. The salads at the beginning of the buffet were dressed perfectly.
Great food and service
Went with colleagues for lunch buffet. It's pretty much what you expect for ten bucks - decent selection of pizza that was all fine. Nothing earth-shattering, nothing bad.
Great food! Nice ambiance!
The food here is pretty good. The staff is out of control though. I never get a friendly server there. The hosts are barely civil. It's one of the joints that thinks they are doing you a favor by letting you eat there. There's still a few REALLY good dishes there though, Ricetta burger is really different and a couple of the pasta dishes are outstanding.
Great lunch buffet
Very busy restaurant, pizza was great do was the lasagna
Food and service was great.
Can beat all u can eat pizza buffet at lunch
Great pizza buffet if you cant decide which to order!
Their brick oven pizza is delicious and a $15 daily all you can eat buffet of pizza, pasta, salad, and dessert.
The best place to eat in a very lo g time.
A cozy environment, amazing food
We go about every 6 weeks. Very good and hot. This Sunday the service exceptional. Nice gentleman with a ponytail. One of the best service i have had in a long time. Really kick off our holiday season.
Lunch time buffet with lots of delicious pizza choices.
Such good pizza. The buffet is my favorite!
Buffet was fresh. Pizza and salad combinations were great. Service was excellent.
Fantastic food! And the sevice was just as great!
Love this place. They never compromise on quality
The lunch buffet is amazing the pizzas great this service is great they also have a great salad bar as well and soup as well..
Best anywhere for a menu and food fare for EVERYONE delicious and the service is fantastic..... everything on their menu is served hot and flavorful ... and the chef will create your something if you desire
Pizza was phenomenal. Nice balance of topics. Tried the fried cheese curds as an app, pesto marinara sauce was fantastic. We'll be back!
Best pizza buffet you can find.
Great food and friendly staff. Josh is an amazing server and takes wonderful care of you while dining, getting you things before you can even think to ask for them.
Best pizza in the state in my opinion. Closest thing to NY.
Great pizza and pasta. Lunch buffet is excellent. On the pricier side but the food is worth it.
Best pizza around.the Buffett is great!! Staff is always so pleasant!!
The food here is always good. The specialty pizzas are a mix or ingredients that work together nicely. The Artichoke appetizers are simply yummy. I'm not a fan of the dip it comes with but they're good without it. The waiter we had was great! Come to think of it we've never had a bad experience with the staff... We'll done!
Consistently good food, friendly service. Affordable. Go.
Was looking for a place in Falmouth and this one sounded good. The reviews weren’t great but I decided to give a chance. But the reviews weren’t lying. The place is cute and they have good menu options. Unfortunately the food is very boring. I got the veggie medley. The risotto had no flavor and the vegetables selection and flavor were poor, the only good thing on the plate was the grilled Zucchini. My husband wasn’t impressed with the Caprese salad with add steak either. They add a beer flight for $10, but they were all very warm. Wasn’t a fan of the bread that they serve either, very doughy. I love when places serve Eli’s Ginger beer, unfortunately I will not be going back there again.
Lunch pizza buffet was delicious!!!
Nice place with fast service. My fiancé and I had cheese curds as an appetizer which were excellent. We also had two personal pizza’s, buffalo and roasted fungi. Both were great and left me wanted to try out the rest of their pizza selection. We we definitely be back. Try it out if you’re in the area, you won’t be disappointed.
Great food. Always enjoy a pizza from here. Decent staff, there are a few waitresses that go above and beyond.
Atmosphere, great service, great food; what's not to like about Ricetta's? Nothing, that's what.
Marinara was waterry, eggplant Parmesan was like mush. Cheese was the best part of the meal. Not happy. Overpriced. Probably frozen factory food Service was excellent. STICK TO The PIZZA it's excellent.
Nice location, staff was friendly, gluten free crust is underwhelming. Wouldn't recommend the fungi pizza unless you realllllly love mushrooms.
Great Fun and real Irish meals
Went with a party of 8 including 2 kids. We had good food all around (my only complaint is that sweet potato fries were greasy), very attentive and accommodating waitstaff, there are a good variety of menu items and nice beer selection. We would definitely return. The kitchen fixed a mistake with our order very rapidly and our waitress comped us a free salad while we waited for it to be done over.
The lunch buffet was excellent. We arrived at the end of the buffet time but they kept replenishing the pizza, salads and soup. Great value for the money and very friendly wait staff!
The restaurants all right the buffet is just mediocre not a huge selection couple times I've been there the one selection for pasta is actually still been frozen that being said there's not a lot of selection for buffet around the area so I guess it's better than nothing.
The food was great but it was a frustrating experience overall. Communication with staff was poor. We told the hostess that we had a party of nine AND two babies. We were told we would have to sit at two separate tables. Which wasn’t impressive but we would do it. Well, the math didn’t add up to the number of chairs at the tables, which brought our party to three separate tables—just enough for each of our families to sit separately. If we were going to go to dinner and eat like that, we would just eat at home or do take out. The staff acknowledged our distaste in the situation but did nothing to fix it. After drink orders were taken we sat at our separate tables for about ten more Minutes when they spontaneously decided to push three other nearby tables (all Of these tables were empty when we were originally sat, no reason at all this couldn’t have been done from the get-go) together so we could eat together. Drinks were brought out but the order was wrong, two out of 6 adults missing entirely. Everyone ordered pizza and one simple salad. It took an hour for food to be served ...we joked the ingredients must have been picked up directly in Italy while we waited. The server was unimpressed (seemingly over-worked probably) and only perked up and was friendly when we were ready to leave. So much of what made this feel like s poor experience could have been cleared from the start, but left us awkwardly trying to see how we could fit, and then feeling isolated and weird about not going out as a group and just being divided by families. Two stars out of 5 (otherwise 0) because the food was good and facilities were clean.
Love the food and service
Very tasty, very affordable and pleasant wait staff.
They had great service and food!
Food is consistently excellent. Fresh ingredients, friendly service. Great for families and couples too!
Food was great and Josh our waiter's service was above excellent.
Sunday buffet every Sunday. We love it and our server, Brie.
My family and I make sure we get to Ricetta's every year when we come up to Maine. It's one of our restaurants we have to hit while we're up. Honestly, the pizza is so good we haven't gotten to anything else on the menu. Doesn't change the fact that I'll be ordering the Buffalo chicken pizza again when I get there. I can't recommend this place enough. There are phenomenal restaurants in Maine, but this is one of our favorites!
My experience was excellent, the pizza was not the best but the ravioli, Oh My The Ravioli, THE RAVIOLI WAS EXCELLENT. I'm not sure I can put into words what it was like someone just blessed the food with Jesus himself. The pizza was very nice there was a large variety of pizzas but none of the pizzas even came close to the experience with the ravioli.
Nice beer selection. We had a nice waitress who didn't mind that the two of us took up a table for four so we could spread out and do some work. Decent pizza that was a little underdone but that could have been my fault for topping choices being a little heavy, maybe (olives, mushrooms, goat cheese).
Creative pizzas, ceasar salad WITH anchovies, and great with kids.
Good lunch buffet lot of pizza choice, nice salad. Very good service. We had a large group and did not rush us.
Pizza was good and at a reasonable price. I was given a glass of water that had something floating in it and it was very obvious. Otherwise the service was good.
Didn't do buffet but the pizzas we ordered were great. Nice atmosphere and decent wait staff. Could be a touch cleaner around tables and eating areas.
This is the best THIN CRUST PIZZA I've had in Maine. Hand tossed, homemade sauce, great cheeses. Wonderful combos or create your own. Service and atmosphere are very good!
Very good local pizza place, would recommend
I like the pizza buffet. It's a great way to try some different combinations that I wouldn't normally order. The pizza here has been consistently good for years and the atmosphere is comfortable. I would say the prices are where they should be for the quality. I really like the Cesar salad on the buffet also.
Pizza looked good, lots of drafts. Chicken caeser salad was good. Busy Sunday night, not enough staff led to slow service.
Lunch pizza buffet to die for, I need more Ricetta's in my life.
Ricetta's is a great place to meet friends, enjoy a drink and e iu t bug er a buffet or orfer iff the menu. A very nice relaxed atmosphere and good service, too@
