Good service, very good food

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

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.

My sister took me here when I was out here for vacation. The kids and her are into the Food network and this was on one of network shows. I am usually cautious of restaurants that are shown on network TV as they can lead to a disappointment. Not sure if the presenters are overblowing how great the food is... More

We already love Rigoletto's, so it was a no-brainer to start going to there wine tasting events. What we did not know is how awesome they would make each one! Gilda has a private distributor presenting some of the best wines from Italy. Meanwhile, they serve up an especially delicious menu of tapas styled appetizers and fresh entrees. The shrimp... More

We were here twice in November, and cannot wait to go back this week. Gilda is really into the food she prepares: freshest ingredients, hands on in the kitchen, answers any questions, tries some new twists on traditional Italian fare. The wines are not marked up from what you would pay in a liquor store, and really compliment your meal.... More

This is a lovely, quaint restaurant set in a mall. The bakery items are unbelievable. Food is typical Italian fare and reasonably priced.
