This is a great restaurant. Their menu is very complete and it’s food delicious . They make a delicious limonade with free refills . Their deserts are delicious. but one of the best things in the bread they serve, their garlic , crunchy bread is...delicious . A little small area to eat but it’s worth the lack of space .More

Had lunch for a co-worker’s birthday and he selected Rigatti’s. He spoke highly of the restaurant and the food. The food was fresh, tasty, and delicious.

Rigatti's is a few doors east of Miami Avenue on SW 1st St. Great prices, food and service. Rigatti's is a favorite of local office and courthouse workers. Good, fresh salads. For $7.95 I just had the biggest hamburger I've ever eaten (too much for...me) includes good, hot french fries. Out of 100 visits, it's the first burger I've had here. Usually, it's their daily lentil soup and a fresh Rigatti salad or I like the hot turkey and brie on baguette. Another favorite is the steak and fries. It's a marinated skirt steak - delicious. Other great chicken dishes - parm, piccata, etc.. It's not a very big place but I've rarely had to wait for a table. It takes a lot for me to give a 5 rating. This place deserves it. Consistently pleased.More

Beyond rude, extremely unprofessional delivery personal. Ordered for delivery. Driver was beyond rude, extremely unprofessional delivery personal; and the restaurant is non-responsive. I had to go thru the online site, in which I originally ordered from, and they, themselves, an account holder cannot get management...to handle the issue "today." The order had specific instructions on the address line, and in addition, also the exact same instructions in the comment section. I received a call saying the driver was downstairs, I reminded them the instructions of where to meet. 40 minutes later, the driver came upstairs, to the wrong address and threw a tantrum with a neighboring office, from banging on their glass door, cursing, yelling, and of course berating the office staff, left the food IN THE WRONG OFFICE. An office located in Brickell, the Financial District of Miami. Sad that a business can have such great reviews, and potential, to be destroyed by their staff, or lack of management. Traditionally, I wouldn't go to this extent of complaint, understanding that hospitality, let alone at lunch time can be very stresful for the restaurant and granted mistakes happen. However, the level of wrong here needs to be acknowledged. Cherry on top, no food, still got charged, embarrassed myself, and neighboring office, and I have to wait for "management" to approve a refund. Management - who could not communicate with their customer, let alone their hired 3rd party company to allocate their delivery services.More

I've been going here for years. Great place to grab a "Italian" meal. Food is always fresh. From pasta, salads, soups. If you don't see it on the menu and they will probably make it for you. And they will make it well.

This is one of my "go to" places in downtown Miami. Close to my office and with really tasty food and great friendly service, one can never go wrong coming here! Go with the specials of the day. They include either a house salad or...a soup. The lentil soup is a must as is their lemonade! Staff is always friendly and treat you like family too! Highly recommend this Italian eateryMore

Telling by the daily lunch time business crowd, Rigatti's is a local favorite for the near by workers. I myself came here after a recommendation by co-workers in the nearby court. The service is polite and prompt. The atmosphere is comfortable, family, and relaxed. They...know how to turn the tables and get the food out fast for the lunch crowd. I've only ever had the chicken marsala dish with linguini. It is absolutely delicious. My only compliant and reason for 4 and not 5 stars is the portions size. For the price, $11, the plate should be bigger. Although I suppose its the perfect portion if you want to feel fed but not full. That being said, the taste has been enough to bring me back multiple times despite my disappointment with the portion size.More
