I ate here 3 times when I was in Lima. The service is excellent, the food is so delicious, and it is not too expensive. I highly recommend the minestrone soup and their fish with mango (amazing). If I am ever back in Lima, I will definitely be back.

I am shocked that this is so high on the TripAdvisor rankings for LIma restaurants. I live in Lima and tried this place based on the reviews. It's possibly the WORST Italian food I've had in Lima--and completely overpriced. There are so many better options. Very dissapointed. Would NEVER recommend this to someone in Lima.

We have been to Rigoletto's several times and we have never been disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere are outstanding and it is a good value for the price.

We both enjoyed the food & the service. We shared an order Cannelloni as an appetizer since both of our entrees were not served with pasta. All three items were very tasty. The service was just right with frequent attention but not interfering. This is a very good Italian restaurant. I can not say that it deserves the number one... More

We were returning from the Mall headed back to our Hotel Mariel and we spotted this restaurant down a side street. We walked past and it looked so inviting that we had to stop. Our daughter exclaimed this is one of the really good restaurants I saw on Trip Advisor. We, did, indeed have dinner and it was delicious. I... More

There are many italian restaurants in Lima, Rigoletto has done a very good job with their food. Offering like bufala mozzarella, cooking the pasta al dente and using good olive oil. Their service was excellent and their pricing is not outrageously expensive like their competitor (La trattoria di Manbrino). I have to thank them for the help they gave me... More

Wow this place really delivered! Decided to try it out due to all the positive trip advisor reviews. The service was very good and our waiters were very attentive. The pasta dishes we ordered were delicious, very authentic tasting. Similar to my Italian grandparents cooking. Loved the tiramisu for dessert!! You must try this restaurant!

The food served at Restaurante Rigoletto was very good, as was the service. The reason I am giving them two stars is because the staff added a tip from our credit card, after we left the premises, without our knowledge or consultation. The bill already included a 10% tip, but like many restaurants in South America, you can manually add... More
