Walking into Ricci's felt more like West End (London) rather than West Yorkshire! The atmosphere had a real buzz with the restaurant about 80% full when we arrived and stayed that way during the time we were there. This suggested to me that there were probably a fair number of regulars - and for good reason.

We were welcomed and promptly seated at our table, which was a good size for a change! So, even though the place was nearly full there was no encroachment on our space making us relaxed and comfortable. I couldn't help noticing the décor, which had interesting artwork, some of which was for sale.

The food was superb as was the service. From the shared nibbles through the starters to the main course, everything was cooked to perfection. My only regret is that I couldn't try everything on the menu! Not surprising then that the choices presented made making a decision very difficult but I believe whatever we'd have chosen wouldn't have disappointed.

I can strongly recommend Ricci's Place for a super dining experience.
