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.

Visited twice and left the first time due to the long queue and the fact that we had our grandkids in tow. Returned at a future time as a couple. Same long wait but we're able to slip into the bar. Full menu in the bar with excellent service and food.

Couldn't make reservations for a party of 8. As we waited, 4 of us went to small bar for a drink. The bartender was doing us a favor to get our drinks. After 45 minutes, got a table. Place was packed at 5:30. Salad was good and plentiful. Olive oil for dipping was not a quality, had a terrible taste... More

We ate at Tony's on a Monday evening and they were quite busy. The salad was very good and served in a large bowl. The rigatoni special was excellent. The lasagna was just O.K. and was a very large portion. The dining area is rather noisy but table conversations were understood. This restaurant is very popular and worth the trip... More

Amazing food, amazing value as prices are lower side of mid range while portions are HUGE. Great flavors, impossible to choose what you want because it's all great. Been here at least a dozen times and finally got around to reviewing :)

RigaTony’s in Tempe has a large loyal fan base. My wife is one of those fans. I am less so, because I don’t like to wait for a table and they are always packed. When she first introduced me to the restaurant in their former location, I left with an incredible impression of their signature antipasto salad. It was that... More

So many Italian restaurants smother all their entrees with red sauce that you only taste the sauce. This restaurant had many other options. They had a chicken piccata on the menu and also a veal entree. We asked if they would make a veal piccata--even though it wasn't on the menu--and they agreed to do so for only a slight... More
