Riga Tony's had a very enticing atmosphere and the wait staff were friendly and accommodating. It was a girls lunch and everyone craved pasta. I had the eggplant parmesean and spaghetti and the rest of the girls had some kind of pasta.

Our family has enjoyed numerous dinners and special occasions at Riga Tony's, and each time has been a memorable occasion. This last time was especially fun. We were handed our 'alarm' to alert us when our table was available and advised we could wait in the bar. It's a charming, wood-paneled bar with a TV and a cozy feel. The... More

This place is impossible to visit without a long wait for a table. Trust me, you won't be disappointed! WAIT I personally have tried almost everything on their menu and haven't found anything that I didn't love.

My husband and I took some friends (older couple) for dinner, and we all agreed our delicious dinners exceeded all expectations. We started with an appetizer of calamari. This wasn't the usual rubbery "rings" but breaded strips that were tender and juicy, yet a little crisp on the outside. THE BEST CALAMARI I'VE TASTED ANYWHERE. I ordered the Baked Manicotti,...

Riga Tony's is a family favorite for the Tempe, Mesa, Chandler area for many years. The house salad and ciabatta bread are the favorite accompaniment for the veal, rigatoni pasta bake and every dish they serve. As crazy as it sounds I almost always end up with the rigatoni dinner. This is a great place for a large family gathering... More

We came in as a large group on a Saturday night without a reservation, and they accommodated us quickly. Very friendly, helpful staff, and the food was great. After living in Italy, it's hard to find decent Italian restaurants, but this one passed the test!

The bottomless salad is the best we have eaten along with an entree for $8.95 before 5pm. This is the only restaurant that has lasted at this location and I think it put Marcello's close by out of business. Try it!you will like it.

On Father's day we took our party of six to Riga Tony's for dinner. We were promptly shown to our table even though two of our party were late in arriving. Our waiter took our drink order and offered us the appetizer menu. Our late arrivals showed up and we all agreed on the Calamari. It was done to perfection.... More

Description
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.
