Ricci is a new restaurant near Punta Carretas Shopping in a beautifully restored building. For years, the building had been a private home and the restoration process preserved much of the architectural detail. In the cueva [wine cellar] they have a framed blueprint showing that it was originally built as a hotel-- but it couldn't have had more than 5 or 6 rooms.

The food is artfully prepared variations on the traditional Uruguyan menu-- beef, lamb, fish, and pasta. Very nice.

Open for lunch and dinner. It's at the corner of Joaquim Nuñez and Miñones

Are prices expensive compared to the average restaurant?
Most of the main dishes run between 200 and 250 pesos ($8-10 US).
