Event though they're closing--last seating on August 27--they've still got the same great food we're used to (good to the last!). This restaurant has been around 65 years; it's sad to see this landmark will be lost.

My family went to Riggio's on a regular basis when I was growing up. When we heard they were closing we had to make one last trip. We devoured 5 large pizzas. Still make a great pie.

Unfortunately, they are retiring and closing the restaurant the end of August. If you want to try them you should hurry.

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!
