My daughter got married the 1st week in Oct and we had family and friends coming over to our home the day after the wedding. Since it was a hectic time making sure the wedding went well, my wife and I decided to cater food in. We wanted to get food that most people love and Riga Tony's was the... More

This time of the year in the Valley of the Sun, one can enjoy patio seating. Rigatony's has a nice patio! Enjoy great service, a yummy antipasta salad and one of their reasonable lunch dishes while taking a break from shopping. I don't think I have ever left without some portion in a "doggie box," meaning portions are large and... More

My wife and I came here the night before her Ironman competition for a little carb loading. She chose this place because they had gluten-free options. Definitely make reservations in advance as this restaurant is very crowded on the wknd. We were seated promptly and the server came by timely. The menu is typical Italian fare with a somewhat limited... More

We went to lunch together at around 11:45, and the place was already packed. We were told there was a 20 to 25 minute wait. However, we could take a seat at the bar for a full menu. Great idea! First of all, the food was great. We enjoyed the all you can eat salad that accompanies the meal, and... More

Read the reviews and here and had to try it out. It exceeded our expectations. Great food and very reasonable prices. Our waiter Nick was very helpful and made our experience even better than we expected. Too much food to eat was the only problem. If you leave there hungry, you only have yourself to blame.

Just what you want for anything from a couple to the family dinner for 16. Expect that this is as advertised: Great food and really fair prices. Going back tomorrow night! Best salad in town!

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

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.
