“Lovely meal and venue”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

It was the first time I had been. The atmosphere was lovely and it was very busy. The food overall was delicious and the other 38 people who I went with also loved the meal.

“Great fixed price Italian in Wigan”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Rigolettos is surprisingly good.
It is located in the DW Stadium just a short distance from Wigan town centre. The al a carte menu is extensive and features good quality seasonal menus well cooked. There is also a really good value fixed price menu for an inexpensive midweek treat or a family celebration. Upon arrival you are welcomed into the reception bar to await your table. The bar staff are friendly and efficient and set the tone for the evening. Rigolettos is decorated in the Italianate style and benefits from an open plan kitchen featuring an authentic wood burning pizza oven which produces deliciously light and crispy pizzas. The ambience is good and it is difficult not to have a good time. A work colleague from the South of England commented upon how friendly the locals are. The food is really good and even the fixed price menu does not skimp on quality. We had a great time and I have been back with my family since. Rigolettos delivers consistently well on every level. Well worth trying.

“Lunchtime value”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Superb value at £6.45 for two courses... menu changes monthly.
Service polite but poor, squashed into a tiny area waiting for our table, lack of drinks service.
Would still go again as food was ok and incredibly cheap

“Great pre-match meal and experience”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We got the corporate hospitality tickets for a match at the DW stadium which included a meal at Rigatellos.
It's easily found on the West stand of the stadium.

Service was very good with waiters and waitresses always taking care of us as guests. The wine did arrive quite late though.
When one of our colleagues arrived late, we were allowed to keep her food on the table in tin foil so that it wouldn't get cold- which was a great thing to do.

There is lots of space, and the atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice. I would definitely bring corporate clients here.

In terms of food, it was buffet style, which isn't ideal, but was still fine:

- Roast Pork with Crackling (7/10)- Pork needed a bit more seasoning
- Beef Stroganoff (8/10)- Really tasty and creamy. Cooked very well
- Spare Ribs (6/10)- Disappointing. Not much meat on the bone and was a little dry.
- Black Forest Gateau (7/10)- Tasted average
- Lemon Tart (5/10)- Too much lemon which completely over powered the meringue.

Value is difficult, but excluding the normal cost of a ticket, the meal itself would have been £30 per person. This is a little expensive, but worth it for the experience.

Overall, the food was 3*, but the service and quality of the experience was 5*, which is why I've given the 4* today.
Overall SB score is 75/100.

“Good value in the DW Stadium”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We went for a midweek early-doors meal (to 9.30 Tues-Thurs). The service was prompt and efficient, the early doors menu is good and cheap at under a tenner and the portions are huge!
The salmon, beef-stew pie and the spaghetti with pork sauce are all recommended and very warming and filling on a cold night.
