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.

Tool shopping!?!

The only way my wife will let me shop at Harbor Freight Tools (located in the same shopping center) is to take her to lunch here! The food is excellent! We share a salad and have one of their many lunch specials. Probably the best Italian food in the area! Service is great and very pleasant.

Friends were in town and we all wanted to get together for dinner. There were 14 of us and we thought of RigaTony's. They can accommodate any size party and their menu has something for everyone. We have never had a bad experience. The next time you are in the mood for an authentic Italian meal, go check them out.

Let's face it: Eating at most restaurants is not as good as it used to be, because they either have hadto raise prices or economize by cutting portions. So it is that Rigatony's known for all-you-can-eat antipasto (yum!) has cut back on the initial serving and seems to offer less meat in the salad. It is still great, especially served... More

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the Ahwatukee area. The food is delicious and priced well for any occasion. (It is not a place for a romantic dinner.) Their house salad and bread alone are great! They offer lunch specials that my girlfriend and I would frequent on Tuesdays for one of my favorites, their lasagna. We... More

We go here regularly. The food and service is terrific. And they have early bird specials that are equally outstanding.

In the sea of cookie cutter chain restaurants this is a very nice relief!!! I have been going here long before they moved from the Arizona Avenue location and the charm and homestyle quality has followed. I love the food, freindly service, and huge portions. I ALWAYS make it point to stop and have a nice meal when in town!!!

Have taken large school groups here for years. They don't mind accommodating real big groups. Rigatoni and spicey sausage is an all-time favorite. Plenty of other choices are well made too.

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 the... 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.
