Dont Fix it if it aint Broken – This restaurant was bought out recently, it is now Martinellis. They changed the signature salad and everything. I was not impressed. The one in Chandler however is still the same.
International Family Favourite!! – This has been a family favourite for approximately 12 yrs. I don't mean only locals, we take EVERYONE there! Family from Europe beg to go there as soon as the plane's tires touch the tarmac! This is THE BEST italian food you can find anywhere. The atmosphere, quality of food, customer service, cleanliness etc., etc., all deserve 5 stars! Go and enjoy a delicious meal in a lovely aromatic restaurant!!
Italian food like I grew up with! – I grew up near New York City in an Italian family from Italy, so I think I know Italian food. I found this hole-in-the-wall by accident 6 years ago from a friend of mine. I go so often that the manager, Wendy, knows me by name and face, the staff smile when I come in and even recognize my voice when I make reservations! The Antipasto salad and the basalmic dressing are delicious, and the neverending refills area a meal in itself. I have eaten just about everything on the menu (except Eggplant Parmigiana, which my family never understood why I hated, being a true-blue Italian) and have yet to find something I don't like. Russell is my favorite waiter. He usually works Thursday through Sunday, and I leave feeling like I am royalty with the service he provides. I must warn you that the chocolate cake is addictive - and my friends and I nicknamed it 'death by chocolate' because it is THAT good. If you have never tasted Italian food the way it is supposed to be prapared, COME HERE!
Best Pasta, sauce service, and everything else! – I have done some reviews on things in the past, but this is my first restaurant review because this is the first restaurant worthy of my review to me! Last Friday, January 12, 2007 my boyfriend and I shared a night out at Rigatony's and we had a very pleasing expierence. The service was unmatchable along with the welcoming enviornment, and detailed seating area. The place was jam packed and for a very good reason! This place is very wonderful! I reserved a place the day before and the wait was much shorter than that of more mainstream restaurants like The Olive Garden. The answer dining questions via the internet or phone line which i really enjoied. The food was devine! I had stuffed spinich shells with alfredo sauce and it was the truely was the best Italian Restaurant expierience. Anybody who is looking for a place to take a date, your family, your parents, co-workers, this would be the place! It is welcoming for any group of people to dine at. Prices are resonable for most restaurants. Remembering it's not fast food so like any where you must be prepared to pay for what you wish. Even so, I will be returning once I feel like Italian again. For me this is the place that makes dreams come true. You must eat at this place!
Editorial Review – Traditional Italian dining comes to Mesa at this spot, offering a variety of authentic dishes and Sinatra for the mood.
A very average restaurant – Rigatony's has a unique, interesting decor. The menu offers a variety of Italian choices. After three visits, the food and service still leave much to be desired. The bread and the pizza are the best choices. The salad wasn't that bad. Their best Italian dishes were below average.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Great Italian – Some friends told us about this restaurant and we love it! The house Chianti is a must and the fried ravioli appetizer is great. The house salad could be a meal on its own. We'll be back.
Horrible!!!!! – I went here because it was a recommendation of a friend, and now I am considering not talking to him... The food here was aweful!!! For being a little neighborhood restaurant its food is nothing different (or better than) and of the local chains here in the valley... I would've been better of going to Macaroni Grill...
Best in Valley – This place is truly a diamond in the rough. Many people have not heard/tried it and are in for a delightful experience. The place is decorated beautifully but very comfy. Go casual or dressed for a date. The music couldn't be better. The food is what makes this place great. Bread and salad are super and every entree I have had is the best. Compliments to the chief! I usually take home 1/2 my order so I can have a tasty desert. No complaints here. Not the usual pasta dishes you can make at home.
