“A Great Neighborhood Restaurant”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

It reminds me of the family, neighborhood restaurants in the Italian suburbs of Chicago. I have been eating in this restaurant regularly over the past year or so. I love the food and the service and the fact that it is only one block from my apartment. I had no idea until today that it is ranked no. 5 in all of Lima. The food is delicious and if nothing on the menu provokes you, the chef with prepare something special. The bar is equipped with satellite; great place to catch American football or basket on a weeknight.

“An Italian treat- in central Lima, Peru.”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This place is a true dream! An oasis of comfort, warmth, attentive/concerned staff, and a chef who wanders out of the kitchen to assess the satisfaction of his guests, for his culinary creations. And creations they are, indeed!
We were a party of 11, needing to dine a bit early before a late night flight. Ristorante Rigoletto sat us at 6 pm (the only guests to arrive so early) and with the pianist playing warm melodies on the exquisite piano in the lobby, we enjoyed probably the finest Italian cuisine, (or any cuisine) we had in all of South America. Wonderful soups, pasta to perfection, and the fresh fish... OMG.... this place knows how to prepare sea foods, and do it right. One of those memorable experiences, that lasts! Don't miss it.

“Fabulous food -- Great Value”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Rigoletto serves truly authentic, flavorful, Italian cuisine. Try, for example, the Insalata Rigoletto: a comforting combination of warm, savory white beans, tender, grilled calamari, and bright, fresh, seasonal greens. The tastes and textures are succulent and robust, and wondrously delicious. The service is friendly and very attentive, without being obtrusive. We recently celebrated my husband’s birthday there. Chef Joselo, and restaurant manager, Francisco were extremely accommodating. They did a superb job, creating an inspired, 3-course menu for 20 guests that was remarkably, reasonably priced. Everyone raved about the exceptional food and service. A soul and wallet satisfying experience!

“Hearty portions, average fare”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

The ambience is very nice and simple, the service is great and the wine list is good. The portions are ample but the food is average with pretensions of being great. Given the dishes on its menu, it seems that the owners obviously have some idea of what traditional Italian cooking is about and the restaurant can easily become a Trattoria di Nonna (Granny´s Restaurant) but the cooking needs to be done with some passion. The fare was really very pedestrian and average.
