Terrible service: waiter came back three times to confirm orders and still brought incorrect food. Waited over 30 minutes for each course, owner came over to complain about staff but didn't think to apologise. Food was mediocre when it did finally arrive.

It was my parents in law 65 wedding anniversary and as it is their favourite restaurant we had lunch here. Needless to say we have come here so many times and it is always amazing. The minestrone was excellent as usual and my husbands sardines were so fresh and tasty, as was the sea bream of my in -laws. Great... More

Been here several times. Friendly, great food, reasonable prices. What's not to like? Try the pork shoulder or the medaglia al fungi. We like that they do classics like prawn cocktail (my wife loves their prawn cocktails), crepes Suzette and zabaione. Trouble is, by the time we get to desserts we are usually too full to appreciate them. Still, a... More

This was the first time I had eaten at Rigaletto and it was fantastic!! Not only was the food fantastic but the service was great. The owner was personally involved throughout the evening. We ordered 2 specials, one being a fillet of Veal which was finished with a tableside flambe show! The price of the food was also very good,... More

I have been meaning to go here for a long time. I finally got round to booking a table last week, and I have been missing out! The food was absolutely stunning, perfectly presented.

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
