An American friend who has lived and worked in Vicenza for four years took me here...telling me it was THE place to go for students, locals, and those in the know. It is a cafeteria style restaurant in that you find your table, set it up yourself, and then walk to the counter and choose your items from the freshly... More

But selvdom have I seen a more happy crowd. Going inside and downstairs - we ordered pannini for first dish, grilled meat and vegetables for the... More

Stopped in Vicenza on way to Milan. On advise of TA looked up Righetti and was glad I did. The place is bigger than it looks with outside seating and also basement dining. We asked one of the servers for help with ordering and she took us by the hand and walked us thru the process. One of the daily... More

I try not to use the word unique. But Righetti is unique. It is a self-service restaurant in the corner of a piazza to the side of the cathedral. It has several rooms. As you enter, a helpful guide finds a table for you and explains, in English, what the restaurant is about. There are several food service stations where... More
