We had an early supper at Ricciardi's in New Bedford. The setting is typical American Italian. There was a fireplace in the middle and the vibe was cozy. The wall decor is slightly tacky but who cares, the thin crust pizza light cheese with fresh mushrooms was delicious. My date's chicken, broccoli and penne was really garlicky but a massive puddle of butter/oil saturated the bottom. It was a heart attack waiting to happen but one taste proved it was good. The bread was crusty and chewy and the waitstaff helpful and attentive. The bill was 25.00 with refills on soda, pizza and an entree. I'd go back.
