My girlfriend and I ate here recently off the specials board and it was absolutely amazing. I can't recall what the specials were, but this is the fourth occasion I've eaten at Rigoni's and every time it has been amazing. It is a touch on the pricy side, however; don't expect much change out of $90 for two people (dinner... More

Drink orders were taken straight away and we were also asked if we wanted sparkling, still or tap water. Once all of out party had arrived the menus were handed out and the specials were advised. I must also say that the... More

I had lunch here whilst i attended a conference in the city. It was nearly 2pm on a Wednesday so it wasn't overly busy. As soon as I entered my waiter was extremely friendly. Great service was also then matched by great food. I had the Linguine al nero e seppia e gamberi (seafood pasta). A good pasta dish with... More

We arrived at 1pm. The restaurant was full of business men having lunch and a wine tasting in a corner. I was the only lady. Graham really enjoyed the Chicken liver pate home made. So much he licked the knife and I told him off. I need told the waitress off for topping my beautiful bottle of malbec up too... More

The food has always been consistently good at Rigoni's - I have been going there for 30 years. But unfortunately the service is hit and miss. Sometimes it will be fine and other times it is terrible. Last Friday we went with friends and it took over 2 hours for our meals to arrive. After 1.5 hrs, I asked how... More

We were in Adelaide for a conference and had walked passed Rigoni's several times getting to and from the conference. So when a group of us decided we needed dinner after the first evening of meetings, this was where I took them. It was busy for 7:30 on a Thursday night and we didn't have a booking. This did not...

At a business meeting we dined at Rigonis for lunch and the service, quality and flavours were hard to beat. I had the pork neck which was a flavour punch while the meat literally melted in your mouth. Matched with some flavoursome cracklings and a puree the meal was a real treat. My business partner had both the gnocchi and... More

As the title says, the meals were excellent but the staff seemed hassled and it was a long wait (too long) for food to arrive. I left feeling the night was good but not great.

This restaurant puts on a show of service and quality but the reality for us was quite different. ( Hence the title of this review) The night we went was our last night in Aus after a 5 week tour and we had high expectations. The only member of staff showing much commitment was looking after the street side tables.... More

Had been wanting to visit this Adelaide institution for a long time and finally had the chance recently. It was a Monday night and quite busy. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff attentive. The disappointment came when our meals arrived (gnocchi for him and pappardelle for me, each priced at around $30). Both were "frugal" to say the least... More
