The Story of

Ricatoni Valentino

Opened in 1996, Ricatoni’s has catered to the public with several signature items, including pizzas cooked in a wood-burning oven, freshly-baked bread with herbs and olive oil, and “old country”style entreés.

The man behind it all is owner Rick Elliott, also known as Ricatoni Valentino from his numerous TV commercials. With an emphasis on atmosphere and exceptional service, he has turned his restaurant into the popular choice for both locals and travelling visitors.
