Delicious Every Time!

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

My husband and I took my grandparents here for lunch after seeing it mentioned on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives on Food Network. Not really sure which of those categories this place fits into, but we are happy we came across it! All of the food was good, but the Florintina panini (thinly sliced beef marinated in marsala wine) really... More

I recently went for my daughter's birthday. I ordered the spinach ravioli and it was delicious. We started by sharing the Veggie Sorrento Insalata and it was so very delicious. I did prefer the bleu cheese dressing over the vinegarette that is normally served with it. I also tasted my daughter's chicken piccata and that too was yummy. Staff is... More
