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...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...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.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
The table service is indifferent and, pre dinner drinks took twenty minutes to arrive and tepid tap water was served even though the evening temperature was 33c. The menu dishes are overpriced especially for eg: Flavourless Pasta dishes Au$40 Also the wine list This overpriced restaurant we will avoid knowing there is better quality Italian restaurants and service in Adelaide. l
