Next time I'm in Virginia Beach I plan to stop here for the baked goods. They are made on-site every day by a baker and a pastry chef, and it shows. No garbage is shipped in from some bakery factory to this place. If you know good baked goods, you'll spot them at this place. As for the Italian food,... More

I had only visited Rigolettos for the Italian cookies. Then I started wandering around the bakery and saw the most beautiful desserts. I guess I never thought about eating because I was usually in a hurry. We have eaten and gone back several times. I bought a gift card and italian cookies as my secret santa gift because it is...

This restaurant was seen on the above name tv show so people think it is above the fray. In fact it is understaffed, technologically insufficient and the food is maybe so so. A couple of exceptions may be a few desserts but those do not make the visit worthwhile. During my first visit with the establishment less than 1/2 full... More

I just visited on 8/1/14 and it is a bakery and an Italian cooking. I had the blue crab manicotti and it was so good. And also their Italian wedding cookies are so good. You should definitely try if in the area.

We ate at this restaurant on our way back from the Military Aviation Museum. We saw the restaurant featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and decided to give it a try. Surely it must be fabulous! We were very sadly disappointed. We followed Guy's advice and ordered the Stuffed Meatball, my son and I shared, and hubby ordered the...I can't... More

What a delightful treat!!! Friends surprised me with a sampling of a variety of desserts. I sampled the layered chocolate cheesecake with brownie in the middle and the toasted coconut German chocolate cupcake. Both items were pure perfection. I definitely recommend this bakery.

I grew up with a Nana who came from Italy and who was a wonderful cook! The food I've tried at Rigoletto's reminds me of home....so authentic! The dessert choices are amazing! Love the cannolis!

I coworker told me about Rigoletto, plus a DDD episode featured the restaurant. A menu fresh of salads, pasta and panini`s plus an all day breakfast. The fresh desert and baked goods are incredible so save room! My favorite is the Prosciutto & Mozzarella panini followed by a lemon sponge cake desert!
