This is our third time to RigaTony's while visiting the Phoenix area. Excellent food, excellent service and definitely priced right. This time around, we had a dietary issue with someone in our party. She is vegan because of health issues. Our server, Jacob could not have been more accommodating. He brought the salad with the cheese and meat on the... More

Went with my extended family. Was expecting chain type Italian. Instead the food was very good and authentic. Not quite NYC but close. Had the spaghetti "Sicilianized." Essentially putanesca style. Enjoyed it.

We recently attended a large party with approximately 25 people on a Sunday afternoon for a special celebration. Unfortunately, the restaurant did not have a separate room but gave us most of the main dining room. We were given a special menu used for large groups with about 4 selections. The drink orders were promptly taken. All meals begun with... More

My husband and I had dinner there yesterday and had a great meal. 'Whitney', our waitress was very attentive and helpful and let us sample a few wines before we made our choice of the house red, which was a good merlot. The atmosphere was cozy, family, casual. My husband had the tour of Italy and I had homemade cheesy... More

Excellent Italian food! We were there 9/9/16 for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our appetizer was eggplant buschetta: so good. Two of us had the seafood with fettuccine alfredo: delicious. One had fettuccine alfredo with chicken & couldn't stop talking about how good it was. One had chicken with mushrooms and mashed potatoes. Very good! The salad and hot bread was... More

I love the baked rigatoni and order it every time I go. Sausage, cheese, garlic spiced marinara with of course rigatoni pasta. Your order comes with a huge bowl of antipasto to start. The bread is hot with butter garlic the way it should be. My wife love the shrimp and linguini in white wine sauce. The eggplant Parmesan is... More

Awesome staff with delicious food from the salad to dessert! Not too bad of a wait with big portions.

Craving spaghetti is what drove me in. The antipasto salad and bread is what made me love it. Absolute bakery perfection with the perfect crisp crust and soft middle dunked in olive oil makes for the perfect lunch accompaniment. The salad was dress just right. Too many places over dress the salad. Oh and the spaghetti with meatball was very... More

We tried this restaurant on a Friday night and it was very busy. People waiting outside to get a table. Good sign! The hostess said there were two seats at the bar with no wait so that was good enough for us. Bartender was very nice and immediately waited on us. Atmosphere was something you would find in an old... More

Our restaurant moved from Chandler to Tempe on April 1st 2010. We have made literally thousands of friends in the last 16 years and it was a difficult decision to move even five miles down the road, but our lease had ended and it seemed like a perfect time to find a location that would make dining at RigaTony's easier and more enjoyable. We now have virtually unlimited parking (I hear a big hooray out there), patio dining, a separate take-out area, and a little more elbow room in our dining room. We serve Authentic Italian Food and have specials every week created by our amazing Chef Hutson. Go to our website for to view our menu and specials. Hope to see you soon! -Mike Lopercio, Owner & Chief Bottle Washer.
