Tried this place a few years back and wasn't impressed. Several friends convinced me to try it again and I'm so glad I did. Had the Florintina Panini this time around and it was outstanding. Marsala marinated beef with caramelized onions and provolone... melts in your mouth. Service was fast and friendly and bought way too many sweet things from... More

We had a nice little dinner where everyone got something they really liked - gnocchi, crab pasta and ravioli. The portion sizes were good and the service was friendly. We also took a few boxes of baked goods with us that were terrific too. I'd definitely recommend it to a friend coming to Virginia Beach.

Stopped in with 2 friends for lunch and ordered the eggplant parmesan and thoroughly enjoyed it. It came with spaghetti too, but the eggplant was fried and crispy on edges and sauce was very good. The service was on the other hand much to be desired, slow, inattentive, maybe they thought we were in Europe and had all day to... More

Okay, so I saw this place on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives and decided I had to give it a try. I live less than an hour away (and I go to the gym less than 15 mins from here). I was blown away. The food here is outstanding, to say the least. However, the bakery is OUT OF THIS WORLD.... More

A trip to Va. Beach would not be complete without going to Rigolette's. They have the best cookies, pasteries, and cakes. Friendly staff. We got stuffed meatballs to go, for a ready made meal when we got home. I would rate a "B", pretty good, but not great.

Have gone there many times for the pastry goods, so was hoping for a really great meal. Ordered the Calamari for an appetizer, and you would be happy if it came out quickly but not in five minutes. That tells you its not fresh and I would like fresh food, not food that has been sitting around. The dinner was... More

The food was awesome and our waiterss Brenda was great.We had the chocolate eclair for dessert and were able to share it between the six of us. Me and my wife will definitely be going back because we truly found a little piece of Italy right... More

We travel to VA many times during the year to visit with our daughters and grandchildren. We always look forward to a lunch at Rigoletto's. The staff is attentive, the atmosphere is great and the food is awesome. On a recent visit, our young grandson threw up and they couldn't do enough to help us. We love it there.

Pretty decent food, but NOT what they show on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives! Taped the show, went and ate, came back and Sandwich and Stuffed Meatballs NOT what they show in the TV show! Good though. Then Sandbridge Beach! NICE!
