A group of friends got salad and bread to go for a birthday luncheon. The salad was quite tasty, and the bread was decent. It was a nice, fresh, light lunch.

If you're looking for really great Italian food, Rigatony's is the best! Their menu is extensive, and their service is excellent. I had the all-you-can-eat Salad & Soup, and it was delicious. I love their house Italian dressing on a generous bed of lettuce with tomatoes and red onions--plenty for two to share. I had their minestrone soup, and it... More

Family of five for lunch. Antipasto salad was excellent. Totally accommodated special ordering. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we all had something different. Good service! Busy, so make a reservation.

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

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.
