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

What a delightful treat!!! Friends surprised me with a sampling of a variety of desserts. I sampled the layered chocolate cheesecake with brownie in the middle and the toasted coconut German chocolate cupcake. Both items were pure perfection. I definitely recommend this bakery.

I grew up with a Nana who came from Italy and who was a wonderful cook! The food I've tried at Rigoletto's reminds me of home....so authentic! The dessert choices are amazing! Love the cannolis!

I coworker told me about Rigoletto, plus a DDD episode featured the restaurant. A menu fresh of salads, pasta and panini`s plus an all day breakfast. The fresh desert and baked goods are incredible so save room! My favorite is the Prosciutto & Mozzarella panini followed by a lemon sponge cake desert!

The meatballs as featured on TV are unique and very good. The service was very attentive and extremely friendly and for the grand finale you get to go and look at the bakery display case (frankly its a miracle I'm not still there 24 hours later). If you can't stop-in for a meal at least buy some desert to take... More

Not a "white linen" experience, but don't tell that to the chef, as the food was freshly made and excellent. This is definitely a neighborhood joint (in an upscale neighborhood, mind you). Soups, entrees, and the famed "stuffed meatballs" were all excellent, and yet the star was the bread. We were served two different kinds of fresh bread that were... More
