Al fresco dining under Leigh Street’s lights feels a bit like a fairy-tale, but Rigoni’s bistro is more than just a romantic dinner spot.
The restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, to serve breakfast options such as ricotta doughnuts with Nutella; and bruschetta topped with pine mushrooms and buffalo mozzarella.
Efficient service, white tablecloths and a dependable menu make Rigoni’s a popular place for quick daytime business meetings. Those planning something a little more drawn out will appreciate the list of local and Italian wines. And if you’re after a casual coffee, there’s always a seat at the bar.
At night Rigoni’s transforms, embracing the warm comfort of an Italian cucina. The menu offers more than the average Italian restaurant. Trust us, romancing is more fun over a squid ink risotto with blue fin tuna, than the standard bowl of bolognaise.
