Service wasn't great, but the food was really good and their desserts are hard to choose from. There are a lot! Small place so get there early.

What a treat, all made from scratch, excellent taste and great choices. This small gem has a great atmosphere, very friendly staff and a menu to die for. It's difficult to choose as all looks great. We visited with friends and everybody was amazed. Leave room for the desert. Their selection of cakes is so tempting you can't resist. If... More

I had coffee and have eaten desserts here in the past during winter months with my car club guys when it was just a small bakery. They have expanded into store front next door and now are a cafe with evening meals but close at 8 Mon-Thur and at 9 Fri and Sat. Our Entrees were very good but one... More

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
