Didn't make it to Rigoletto until our drive out of town at the end of our week in Virginia Beach. Arrived several minutes before their 9am open. When they noticed me at the door they quickly invited me in dismissing my apologies for being early Ordered sfogliatelle, an assortment of biscotti, two French cream horns and a box of Italian...

My niece's wedding shower was held here last week...can't say enough about the food, the atmosphere, the service and the wine! All was perfect. I am still speechless over the great bottle of wine that we had that was only $15! We had 2 wonderful ladies with us that are from Italy and they both love this place. The desserts....too... More

If you want great Italian cooking, cookies, bread and pastries, your not going to find any place better here in Virginia Beach. Only other option would be visiting Naples, Italy. Everything is to kill for, really! It is family owned and operated! The owners and their staff go out of the way to make your visit the best possible. Highly... More

I love Guy Fiery of the Food Network and saw him visit Rigoletto's on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I must say that is the only reason we visited this restaurant while we were in Virginia Beach. First of all, we didn't see the mother/daughter duo both days we visited. The first day we entered the restaurant we were immediately asked,"Are... More

As soon as you step into Rigoletto Italian Bakery and Café, you are immediately greeted by a slightly dim lit lobby. Another glance will greet you with an impressive display of Italian treats; from cakes to cookies and so much more, the displays in the front seem to be the pride of the establishment. The atmosphere is almost familial, it... More

Don't know quite where to rate this. I almost gave it a three based on the service, but we were very impressed with the pastry display cases. One case has nothing but biscotti in any variation you can think of, the other has Italian cookies, and the final two have different cakes and cake rolls. If you have read the... More

My wife wanted to eat here because it had been featured on "Triple D". The food was mostly fair. Their famous "stuffed" meatball was nothing more than a big round piece of meatloaf (that had been cooked a day or two earlier). Trust me: you'll be disappointed. Be careful about desserts. My wife bought a chocolate over mousse in a... More

I've enjoyed everything I've eaten here. Very well prepared and reasonably priced Italian dishes that according to the owner are all family recipes (all in Italian) from her native Italy. The desserts not only look amazing in he showcase but are delicious as well. If you're looking for bubbly, eager-to-please service this may not be the place for you, but... More

It's in a strip mall & doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's larger inside than it appears. And they have several pastry cases so you have many options to choose from. I had the spaghetti & 1 LARGE stuffed meatball, & the meatball was yummy. The salads and soups also looked good. We shared the signature dessert... More
