3 New RICARDO Meal Boxes for Fall

Even though COVID-19’s second wave is in full swing and we’ve had to close our three dining rooms for much of October, Café RICARDO still wants to provide you with a restaurant-style meal. As with our previous offerings this past spring and summer, we now have three new meal kits ready for you to cook and enjoy! Whether you prefer a classic Italian meal, a gourmet dining experience or Sunday-style brunch, we’re bringing the Café RICARDO experience to your home.

Italian Box

If an Italian vacation was in the cards in 2020 but you were unfortunately forced to cancel, this Italian-themed meal will certainly take you on a culinary voyage! $70 for two people or $130 for four.
