Two couples in our mid 40's dines on a Saturday night prior to attending a fringe show. Service was excellent, everything was clean and well presented. Toilets were also very clean which was a nice change. There was a good sized menu but mostly seafood which I don't eat. We shared some bruschetta which was very different. I might have... More

Very pricey for what is served up. Service is relatively slow and staff are over worked. However they are very pleasant when they do attend your table!!!!! Food was OK. The Gnocchi was very bland even could be described as cardboard if eaten plain. My pork belly was to die for but the others were just ok.

Food very average - over cooked pasta dish with prawns that were nearly inedible. Service extremely poor (particularly for prices charged). Waited 5 minutes to be greeted and shown to our table No communication between their staff - we were asked for drink orders twice by different staff, the wine took forever to come out then spilt on table by...

Lunch at Rigoni's for 3 was a delight - great service, excellent meals (try the potato gnocchi with salmone). Waiter suggested a local wine which was not on the wine list - really good choice. Staff very knowledgeable regarding the food making choosing much easier. Have not been to Rigoni's for years but really enjoyed today's lunch. Will be back.

We were in Adelaide for the Adele concert and had been recommended Rigonis, we stumbled across it whilst looking for a bar in one of the numerous laneways off Hindley Street. We booked for later in the evening as one if our party was running a big late. When we returned, all of the outside tables were full, however the... More

A true test of a restaurant is when it can handle a large and demanding group and have everyone walk away happy. Rigoni's delivered. Hopefully will get the opportunity to go back.

Booked in early prior to Adele concert. Was told over the phone that the menu was preset at $65 for two courses included glass of wine. No wine was included as we discovered on arrival. Atmosphere is nice and waitresses were very pleasant. Entree came out quite quickly and was very nice. Both enjoyed. The main was another story. A... More

Lovely setting, the food was great, (not big portions) but a little salty. Needed an entree and a main so pricey with wine at $170 for 2 people. After we finished the plates were not cleared away in a timely fashion, (well - not at all actually, I had to stack them so we had a bit of room on... More

Rigonis is located in an alley near Adelaide's Parliament House. This means that whether you chose to eat inside or out iris quiet and there is no dusty traffic thundering past. We were a group of three. The food was delicious, nicely presented and coming without undue delay after ordering.

Overpriced food and wine with poor meal portions, We had the chicken special which consisted of two boney chicken wings. Left still hungry.
