I love the decor in there. We ordered wine and saganaki to start. Then he had soup and I had salad. He says his soup was very fresh and bright tasting. My salad was delicious topped with the house dressing. Entrees were also delicious. We didn't have dessert because we were so full. The prices were reasonable.

It is birthday time for my niece so it's to Rigo's for a delicious lunch. Whenever eating out is brought up, it is to Rigo's we go. Try it, you will love it.
