“If you're looking for a romantic Italian evening you won't find it here.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I have visited Rigalettos on a number of occasions most recently a couple of weeks ago. I was with a party of about 40 people and we had a set menu of three courses with Coffee. I think the venue is ideal for this type of dinner, a works do maybe. The dining room is large, pleasantly decorated in the mediterranean style. It is very well lit not conducive to a romantic experience. The restrooms are clean and have good facilities. I have seen some very red faces though from people who don't know the Italian for Ladies and Gentlemen as there are no pictures to help distinguish the two.
The food has always be quite good but the service has been variable from good to average. I don't recall having any bad experiences here. I wouldn't chose this restaurant for a special occasion it's a very ordinary experience.

“A rush from start to finish”
Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

It is a real shame when you go to a restaurant for an intimate dinner and the memory you leave with is how rushed you felt. We could not fault the food which was excellent nor the value which was equally good.

The problem is when it feels like you are part of a world record attempt to see how many diners can be fed. We left feeling like we had competed in the 100m not the marathon.

Sort out the intrusion and rush to complete someone dining experience. Im not sure you realise how intrusive the experience feels. Fix it and you will return to greatness.
