Enjoyed delicious meat ravioli on October 14th. My guest also described her meal as delicious! I had a Groupon coupon which I was able to use that evening for dinner. I had made a reservation for dinner as it was Friday night. I asked if I could use the Groupon coupon at that time. This is a very family friendly... More

A coworker suggested Riggio's for lunch and though I had driven by many times, I had never considered it. To be honest it doesn't always look like it's open. But we went and I was very pleasantly surprised. I had the meatball sub, which I really liked as they had sliced the meatballs so they were easier to eat. I... More

My wife and I went to Riggios for Dinner, My wife avoids Gluten and to our surprise we have a number of options. Our waitress Victoria was very accommodating and helpful. With her help we found that they not only have a non-gluten pasta dish but also have a non-gluten pizza option. I am lactose intolerant intolerant have do not... More

Very unprofessional. Sloppily dressed supposedly male manager and female hostess, and Unprofessional looking female bartender who had a plunging neck line blouse on. whoever heard of an Italian restaurant not having calamari and Linguini in red sauce.

Ordered linguine with Calamari which wasn't printed on menu..asked server and she said we could order, since they had fried calamari for appetizer..

If you are looking for any ambiance, this is not the place to go. Host staff is not very inviting and sometimes confused. The pizza is about the only thing worth ordering. There are other choices that will do you better.

I flew to Chicago to celebrate a birthday (80 years old). I choose Riggio's. Everything was ready when we arrived. Rose was assigned to take care of our group. Service was excellent. Everyone ordered off the menu. Everyone was pleased with their meal. Also added a couple pizzas. They were very good. We were also given our own area so... More

Description
The best of family-owned Italian restaurants and one of Chicago's very first pizzerias, Adreana and Pasquale Riggio opened their little Italian restaurant on near Welles Park in 1952. Today, the family continues their tradition in Niles, serving their famous thin crust and Sicilian deep dish pan pizzas. Riggio's also dishes up the pastas - homemade raviolis, baked 4 cheese rigatoni, farfalle al pesto, roasted chicken and veal parmigianas with mouth-watering reliability. For parties large and small, families with children and teens, for banquets or catering, or for that wonderful night out, Riggio's can serve you best! Prices are reasonable, large and small parties are seated quickly and easily. We always strive to provide a warm hospitable atmosphere and great service. There's plenty of parking with easy access off Oakton Street at Milwaukee Avenue, coming in for a meal or just dropping by to pick up a pizza on your way home is easy. We love the little ones, so bring in the whole family, children, aunts, uncles and grandparents, and join the customers who have enjoyed Riggio's food and hospitality for generations. Saluti dalla Famiglia!
