Visiting a friend in Bicester and we were looking for something different to eat from the run of the mill places around town. We arrived at the restaurant and the owner and his wife cheerfully greeted us. We where made to feel totally at home and instantly felt relaxed and the atmosphere was fantastic. We ordered the food and sat... More

Four of dined at Rigoletto on Friday evening. I had mussels to start, which were tasty. Two of us had grilled fillet of beef filled with dolcelatte cheese, served with a red wine sauce which was probably the best steak I have ever had in my life. We shared mixed vegetables and courgette fritters. The house red wine was fine.... More

With friends we were trying this out whilst staying at Bicester. Very relaxed atmosphere with a nice table in the conservatory. The Italian owners were very forthcoming about choices and they helped with the Italian wine recommendations. Hot avocado with mushrooms is a good choice for a starter and that was followed by a very pleasant steak cooked with truffles.... More

We like Rigoletto's as a special occasion visit (special visitors, anniversaries etc). The food is AMAZING. The service is friendly, homely and knowledgeable. Chef is happy to talk to diners about the menu and make recommendations taking into account personal taste. The setting is out of the way, but well worth the trip so long as you have a none... More

We found this restaurant after not being able to eat at the hotel we were staying at and very pleased we did. The food was amazing, desserts beautiful and the service outstanding. It was a pleasure to eat there and for the price its fantastic. A really warm and welcoming restaurant.

My husband had salmon with vegetables and it was excellent , plus home made creme caramel. A bottle of San Pellegrino, and a... More

We ate here simply because we both like good Italian food and had read some good reviews. For us, a friendly welcome, good staff, and the fact the owner has a little banter with you is always a plus, no pretentious here. The proprietor has owned and run Italian restaurants for many years and it shows, we let him recommend... More

My husband treated me to a wonderful Sunday lunch and I'm so pleased we came to Rigletto. Giorgio served us and he was excellent. On Sundays you can chose from the special menu which is three courses and there is a wonderful selection to suit all taste including vegetarians. I had the best mussels ever to start and my husband... More
