“Italian ?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

If you like your Italian food with no herbs or garlic, this is your spot ! Tomato sauce seemed to be straight from the can, kids might be happy here.

“Cheesesteaks and Pizza Rule!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This little place has wonderful, tasty food. It's just a small Italian restaurant, but don't be fooled by its size! The food has consistently been excellent over the years, and I have eaten there many times. The pizza is out of this world (white pizza with spinach is great), and the cheesesteaks are outstanding. The pasta dishes are wonderful as well. The atmosphere and service are fine, and the prices are reasonable. Give this place a chance, and you won't be disappointed.

“Not what it once was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

When Rigatoni's first opened it was a wonderful place. Authentic Italian fare - even the pizzas used real Italian ingredients. Since then it has steadily declined and is, at best, average (that's probably a generous rating). Constant turnover in staff has really hurt service. The menu was changed a couple of years ago and now seems to favor pre-prepared dishes. While the portions are plentiful, the flavors really aren't there. The sandwich menu is probably the highlight here.

“Rude people food very average”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The owner is extremely rude. He has never supported anything in Pilot Mtn because he is too cheap to support the community. I stopped going there because a) the food is average, b) the ambience is terrible, and c) the owner is unappreciative of his customers and very rude. Go to Mezzy's! They support our community!

“GREAT FOOD!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It was all good, probably the best pizza I had in years. The garlic knots were a nice appetizer and they were served quickly while we waited on the pizza. The staff was friendly and happy to help out.
