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.

After reading other reviews I felt I must have missed something. I came away thinking I ate an average quality meal in an average Italian restaurant. I had eggplant parmesan. The eggplant was a bit over-breaded and the side pasta was over- warmed under the salamander to the point it had partially dried out. The tomato sauce was flavorful with... More

I have been here twice. The ambiance is great. Both times had to wait approximately 30 min. Sat inside once and outside the other time. It was a bit chilly outside but their warmers made it comfortable. You can't help but want to relax and enjoy the evening. I got the sausage baked rigatony and it was delicious. It's the... More

If you call ahead the wait is worth it! Good food and prices. Lovely Chicken Piccatta wonderful salad, Great calamari, mussels and Pene Rosa. We have always requested our favorite server who spoils us. Love being a regular there. Great Canollis if you have the room for them.

Found this place through a list of Italian restaurants, while I was in Arizona for a day. I thought, I'd give this place a try since it looked good. The atmosphere felt like a very family friendly place, the dining area was very cozy and warm so it was very a comfortable dining experience. There were several appetizing items on... More

Even though Rigatony's moved farther away from us, we still make sure we make time to go there once a week. It is well worth the drive, great atmosphere and very good service. We bought a $50 gift certificate for our friends at Christmas and we got a Baked Rigatony for 2 coupon that we could use for us. It... More

Rigatony's used to be our go-to Italian place until they moved further. Now we prefer Salerno's. Rigs has a great atmosphere and authentic Italian food. Love the salad too. Now, we only go there for their great take-out specials when we have large family get-togethers.

This place was recommended by an employee. I was disappointed they were out of ravioli but I found a penne dish with a red cream sauce that was a pleasant surprise. The salad was great, the bread was fresh and tasty. That pasta dish was better than I thought it would be since my heart was looking forward to the... More

rigatonys is so busy no one goes there anymore! HA! No reservations- BUT if you have a party of 10 you can reserve this little room that is just big enough for a long table to comfortably seat 10- 12. You will LOVE the house salad and bread and my favorite is South Beach Primavera. Everything is good:) Love the... More
