Is this in the sense of "they do not want to welcome us", etc., like they don't want you to come for a visit?

One of the definitions of 'ricevere' is "welcome, greet, entertain", so yes "They don't want us to come for a visit" in the broad sense. Maybe more specifically they don't want to do the things a good host does for guests.
