Our Story

Welcome To Rick’s Place

When I embarked on my mission to open a restaurant, my mindset was to deliver high quality, beautifully prepared food that didn’t break the bank. I wanted a family-friendly place with a casual ambience.  

I strongly believe I have achieved my objective with Rick’s Place.  

From the day I opened this Italian restaurant in Melbourne, I have been delighted to see the flock of many local customers and tourists looking to try what we have to offer.  

With the help and expertise of my team, we have since served good food that is cooked with passion.  

I encourage you to share our great food with great family and friends. My invitation extends to all Melbournians, who would like to experience dining with a twist, to visit my restaurant.
