Good food gone bad!!

A bad meal with drinks for two at Rigatoni cost $50 vs $12 at Whataburger. Be careful of when they rotate out the cook when you decide to visit. It will be a long time till my nx visit. Cold blan pasta is terrible.

Remember you're 10-15miles away from "corpus" this is the only place you can get a nice Italian meal & not drive a ways if you are in the calallen area. The place is small but clean & the food is okay no complaints just not the best I've ever had. If you want really good Italian, drive downtown corpus &... More

Authentic Italian food for Corpus Christi. Food and service was great at a reasonable price. Best option on this side of town.

we went Wednesday night about 6:30, it's a neighborhood restaurant in a strip mall so i wasn't expecting alot- and it was about what I expected. I warned my partner not to order veal marsala because I had a vibe that it would be a frozen thin rubbery prepackaged patty and it was. Seated pretty quickly, there were about 3... More

I recently just dined in, and i thought this restaurant was just going to be a hole in the wall but i walked in and saw this romantic restaurant fill with paintings on the wall that gives you a sense that you are in Italy. There are fresh flowers on every table! You don’t see that, at restaurants! The service... More

Before we moved to CC, I grew up around authentic Italian food, and frankly, I can usually make better pasta at home than what I have been served in CC. However, Rigatoni's was a fabulous surprise. We live way over in Brighton Village, but drive all the way to Leopard on the NW side of town to dine there. We... More

First of all, this restaurant is located in NW Corpus which is in the Tuloso-Midway ISD area @ the corner of McKenzie and Leopard. Secondly, the owner, Nora is an excellent person to work with and so is her brother, who is the chef. I booked the entire restaurant for a family reception in 2006 and have been back as... More

When I saw a new Italian restaurant close to Portland (where I live) down by North beach I was excited! The food was not good. It tasted like someone boiled noodles and put a jar of ragu on them. I have since seen their website which looks rather impressive. Apparently the owner is an italian chef of over 20 years.... More
