Description: Our restaurant moved from Chandler to Tempe on April 1st 2010. We have made literally thousands of friends in the last 16 years and it was a difficult decision to move even five miles down the road, but our lease had ended and it seemed like a perfect time to find a location that would make dining at RigaTony's easier and more enjoyable. We now have virtually unlimited parking (I hear a big hooray out there), patio dining, a separate take-out area, and a little more elbow room in our dining room. We serve Authentic Italian Food and have specials every week created by our amazing Chef Hutson. Go to our website for to view our menu and specials. Hope to see you soon! -Mike Lopercio, Owner & Chief Bottle Washer.

We were looking for Italian on our way home from the Desert Botanical Gardens and found RigaTony’s with high ratings. We were quickly seated. Our friends said the colors and décor looked just like a restaurant in Spokane. There were a lot of great sounding dishes, so it took a while to decide. First, they bring you the family style...

Met a friend here for dinner after reading about it & looking at the menu online. Some great choices! The waiter was wonderful & really was attentive, yet not overbearing. He brought the bread (heavenly!) & salad (good, but too many onions). My lasagna was huge & looked great, but, for me, the flavor was just so-so. Chunks of tomatoes... More

RigaTony's serves up great Italian food for a great price. Be careful not to over order as you get a side like soup or fries Plus you get a salad... The Badaboom Chicken sandwich was excellent. They serve a lot of bread & everything we had was fresh & warm. Cheers. JJ

We found this little gym by searching on line for Italian Restaurants in Tempe. It just happened to be close to our hotel so we gave it a try. Of course, we were dressed for spring training, so we didn't have "dressy" clothes with us. No problem here. Everyone was very casual, the food was awesome and the service to... More

It starts with friendly, efficient service & just gets better when you get the food. Plenty of variety, so everyone can get what they want. I don't get to Tempe very often, but this is a place I'll repeat. Had a great pasta dinner & ran a good marathon the next day!

Based on reviews here, we tried Rigatony's and were delighted. My husband had a chicken entree and I had veal Parmesan, both were wonderful. We were celebrating a birthday and dessert was graciously included.

We used to go here occasionally when it was in Chandler and loved it. We were devastated when we thought they went out of business (it wasn't well advertised that they moved). Recently we found them again and it was every bit as good as we remembered! Love, love, love the salad! It might a longer drive now, but we'll... More

We came here with friends. They have been here often and wanted to introduce us to RigaTony’s. We were welcomed and seated very quickly. Drink orders were taken and brought. The server ran through the evening’s specials. Our server was charm personified she was well acquainted with the menu items and answered any and all of our questions intelligently and... More

We came across this restaurant several years ago and find it to be one of the best in "the Valley of the Sun". We just keep coming back for the great food, atmosphere, service and reasonable prices. There is a lunch special every day of the week; we had Chicken Parmesan today (Monday) and it came with as much of... More
