Bryant High School 50th Reunion Class of ‘62

Dear Mark,

Bryant High School's Class of 1962 held its 50-year reunion at Riccardo's on October 13, 2012. Thanks to you and your staff, the event far surpassed the expectations of both the Reunion Committee and the attendees in every way.

As you know, 230 people attended. However, we did not feel in the least bit crowded. There were no delays at the buffet or the bars, and service at both was excellent. Several people commented to the committee on the high quality of the food, both during the cocktail hour and on the buffet. And, in spite of the fact that there were two other large parties on the premises, we felt as though we had the entire building to ourselves, with no traffic problems in the lobby or restrooms and no noise to interfere with our celebration. Several classmates also expressed their amazement at the value they received for their money.

On behalf of the Reunion Committee and the Class of '62, I would like to thank you and all your staff for helping make our 50-year reunion a night that will long be remembered. When it comes time for the 55th, we will definitely recommend that it be held at Riccardo's once again.

With many thanks,
Dale Corey
Chair, Class of '62 Reunion Committee

Thank You for a Wonderful Wedding!

Dear Mark & Riccardo's team,

We want to thank you for the wonderful evening we had for our wedding. Everything was perfect and very well organized, above all our expectations! Starfire room was marvelous, all of our guests liked it. Also, our guests were very satisfied with the food, they all said the food was very tasty and that you were very generous with it.

There are no words to thank you for everything you have done for us. Planning a wedding is really stressful, but you made it so easy, we didn't have to worry about anything.

We will spread the good word about your restaurant and your service because you really do deserve it. Everyone were great, from waiters to Elvira and John, who were very helpful.

You should really be proud of your team, and keep doing what you do the best, great service with lots of love involved.

Thank you once again, and we promise that we will be back for every Event we plan in the future.

35 Year High School Reunion

Dear Mark,

It's been one month since our 35th High School Class Reunion on July 7th which tool place in the Suburban Room and I must tell you that we are all still talking about the huge success of the event. I along with my husband and the event committee would like to thank you and your staff for all of the outstanding services that you provided to us.

John and Fausto were were so instrumental in asserting that our event went according to schedule. And you, Mark… what can I say other than you were absolutely WONDERFUL! I cannot thank you enough for being so accommodating with us. It was indeed a pleasure doing business with you and I would most definitely use your services again should the need arise. I would definitely recommend  Riccardo’s by the Bridge to anyone needing a catering hall. Food was great, staff was great and the Suburban Room was the PERFECT space for our event.

Thank you, Mark, for your superb service. We hope that you and your family stay well. Until our paths cross again, ALL THE VERY BEST TO YOU!

Better and Better

Tiffany Room, May 27th 2012- the venue for my husband's Suprise 60th Birthday party. It was a fantastic afternoon - Ray and all our guests had a great time. This was all thanks in large part to the Management and Staff of Riccardo's BTB. Eleanor was instrumental in helping me to pull off what turned out to be a beautifully grand affair. The Maitre d' Tony and his wait staff executed the food and drink service flawlessly. Fausto deserves a special mention here, as he was 'my right hand' for the afternoon, checking with me at crucial points throughout to make sure all went according to my plan and that everything was just so. Ray and I held our wedding reception here at Riccardo's on September 14th 1997- both then and on May 27th 2012 we could not have asked for a more truly memorable time.

Thank you Riccardo's!

Our Daughter’s Sweetest 16!

We’re just writing to let you know how appreciative we are of the way we have been treated at Riccardo’s.

Yesterday, March 17, we celebrated our youngest daughter’s Sweet 16. This was a first for us where planning a big party was concerned. Someone suggested Riccardo’s and because it was almost a last minute choice (the party) we decided to give it a try.

From the very first moment we entered Riccardo’s as possible clients we were treated so well, especially by Tony and Mark.

During our months of preparation, every concern, every question, every fear was addressed with professionalism and such care.

Yesterday, we both were very stressed due to some last minute minor complications (nothing to do with Riccardo’s). From the moment we got there we were met by Mark who treated us as old friends and made sure we were relaxed and less anxious by the time we lined up to go into the beautifully decorated room.

Everything was exceptional: Everything. We all had a beautiful time. The food was plenty and delicious, the service courteous and so friendly. The cake was to die for. Everyone at the party congratulated us on giving a great party; we really owe it all to Tony, Mark and the staff at Riccardo’s.

Our daughter, Natalie had such a great time with her friends and everyone else that Facebook is filled with positive comments about her party.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Mark and Tony and staff. We couldn’t have been treated better if we were family. We are deeply grateful and we send you our love.
