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.

Great Italian Food

We have been here many, many times. The last was on Mother's day, 2015. The food was great, the service was slow which was due to the place being packed. Usually on a normal day, the service is as great as the food. you will also find that the pricing is better than a lot of places, which makes... read more

We stopped by for the first time in a long tme, and the food was just as good as ever, though there is less of it for the dollar. RigaTony's is still a fun place to go and the food is still tasty, but you get less of it than before. Kind of sad, really.

We met another couple on Sunday afternoon (early bird). It has been a long time since we've been to RigaTony's & is now in a different location. Our server (Kimberly) was very helpful & friendly. Our beverages came right away as did our orders. The salad is very good & they keep bringing it if you want. All four of... More

I really like this restaurant. This is a busy restaurant and I can see why! The food is outstanding and the menu is varied. They have a house salad that is the best I have found anywhere in my travels. Large and varied menu and very reasonable prices. The restaurant has great Italian ambiance and the service is excellent. Easy... More

If you like Old Italy/Old Hollywood (think the Rat Pack) and big filling portions, this is your place. The salad is great but be sure to get a doggie bag to have leftovers the next day. We went on a slow late evening. Service wasn't the best (she kept forgetting things like utensils or extras we ordered) but the food... More

You just cannot go wrong here. I have visited many times and it is always excellent. The house salad alone makes the trip worthwhile. I have tried just about everything on the menu at one time or another. Never had a bad experience.

My family and I have been going to Riga Tony's for many years and the food is always delicious. I am from New York and miss great Italian food and have tried many places since I moved here in 1994. There are only a few Italian Restaurants I have loved and Riga Tony's is on that small list. First, the... More

We had a minimal wait on a Sunday evening and had a fabulous waiter who served us fast and attentively. We tried the zucchini appetizer that was so highly recommended and it was good--a bit different with a lemon-dill sauce more like what you might find with a grilled fish but still good. The salad was good with a light... More

Asked at the hotel for a recommendation and tried this place. So glad I did. Food was delicious and made fresh to order. The pasta was incredible and the sauce so rich and filling. The salad was tasty and the service was efficient and quick. Server was so delightful and kept me entertained throughout the meal.
