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.

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.

Rigatony's is a great choice for anyone to eat and enjoy! The service was quick and the workers were very friendly. All of the waiters and waitresses would always make sure that your visit was to your liking. I never needed to ask them for anything because I never needed to wait on anything! Not only was the service great,... More

After years of patronizing this restaurant in both the old and new location, we will never return after the treatment we received tonight. We brought many new people there. had family celebrations there etc etc. Many times we received their "coupon" program cards and stickers and never used them because we put them in a drawer and forgot about them....

I had an opportunity to dine in Tempe last night and was craving Italian food that wasn't Olive Garden. I like Olive Garden, I just wanted something different. RigaTony's is the place. I had the spaghetti special with meatballs, sausage, and a meat sauce which was outstanding. The pasta was cooked perfectly. The gravy (sauce) was thick and flavorful. The... More

I have been to this restaurant when it was located on Arizona Ave. I finally had a chance to eat at their new location. The food is still out standing and the service is very accomodating and friendly. We had a family gathering and everyone was very satisfied with their choice. I will be there again, great food.

Excellent food served in a great atmosphere. Our waitress took the time to explain the menu even though she was obviously very busy. Ciabatta bread and salad are outstanding and included with the meal. I would definitely return next time I'm in Tempe.

We go here a lot. At least twice a month, sometimes more. The food is amazing, the service is usually great, and it's such a warm and inviting place. There are a couple of menu items I'm not a huge fan of, but I think that's more my personal taste (not a fan of shrimp in particular so I stay... More
