Good service, very good food

Meatballs are excellent. The crab bisque was very enjoyable. Salads were above average. Service was attentive.

We made an effort to visit here because of the DDD special and passed up a number of great restaurants in the Virginia Beach area. At first, I thought I was in the wrong place because it was pretty quiet for a Friday night. The wait staff seemed overwhelmed because they were trying to serve customers in the dining room... More

Dinner service was horrible. We waited over 40 minutes for a small salad and pasta dish. The waitress while new was very dodging when we tried to get her attention. Senior staff came over to explain there was only one person in the kitchen and asked if I wanted a box to take my food home since we had other... More

Meals are fairly good but portions could be bigger. If you want a real meal pleaser, try the chicken parmigiana. Lots to eat and pretty tasty

After watching the episode of DDD we had to make a stop here, Guy made the sandwich look sooooo delicious. We traveled from NC and boy were we disappointed. Restaurant was very nice looking, the dessert display was beautiful (I had a strong feeling that they were not going to be good...too pretty). So we sat down and placed our... More

The bakery displays are enticing as you enter and menu has many delicious sounding entrees. The ziti was very good. The steak onion provolone tomato sandwich on focaccia was tasty but really need mayo and spicy mustard to give it a flavor boost. The sandwich is massive The garlic fries were the winner on the plate. 2$ upcharge from the... More

Good food & bakery. Busy, slow service, mistake on bill. People left as tables were held over 1 hr. Appears they just need more help.

My husband and I ate here recently. The entree choices were interesting to choose among. Everything we ordered was yummy. The service was lovely as well. The desserts are what set this place apart however. I'm from New York and I was transported back home with the choices. We ate some there and brought more home. Go!You will not be... More

I am a frequent customer at rigoletto, and their pastries are my favorite! They have a good variety or baked goods and delicious hot beverages to choose from. One thing that bothers me is the wait staff. Most times, the orders I place come to me wrong. Also, one of the waitresses has extremely bad breathe and smells a bit... More

Nice cafe with lots of authentic Italian dishes, sandwiches and panini's. Large selection of desserts and the best tiramisu in this area. They also bake and sell bread daily but you have to shop early to get it.
