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.

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

RigaTony's is SO good! The service is great, the menu has a ton of variety and they also have a great kids menu! They immediately bring out their house salad and bread to dip in olive oil and spices, way better than the Olive Garden! Def recommend this place to anyone!

I first discovered this restaurant when we came back and visited a few years ago during the holidays. Friends had gotten Rigatony's carry out for a gathering at their home, and we were hooked. It quickly became a staple any time I had a need for great food for a party, or even our trips to Rocky Point for the... More

Our first time going to Rigatony's and the food honestly was really good. Except for the HUGE ripoff that is a supposed 16" pizza for $20! $20 for average sauce, average cheese, average bread and average single topping. In fact....our pizza was only 14 inches, thank you very much. Chicken piccata was excellent, anti pasto salad was fabulous as well.... More

Living just down the road from Riga Tony's, we eat there when we meet with friends. It's always a treat. Although it is always a busy place, we are never disappointed. The service is excellent, the bread is delicious, and the bartender remembers how my husband likes his Long Island Ice Tea. Our friends from New York City were very... More

My wife had the stuffed shells and they were tough and chewy. I had the Veal Parmesan, and it tasted like cardboard, and the pesto style spaghetti side, tasted like fish. Service was good and their bread is delicious.

Went on a Thursday evening and got seated quickly. Server was there quickly with samples of the house wine. Eggplant Parmesan was good and not too tough. Love the bread and salad! Wish I could eat there more often or refrain from stuffing myself, but OMG, the calories!

This is the third time we've been here & the place is crowded all the time, so expect to wait between 5-15 minutes wait. The bread & salad is just amazing! Spaghetti with meatballs, pasta with salmon always come piping hot & taste so unbelievably great. The servers are friendly & courteous. We will definitely be back for more.
