A 32-ounce frozen goblet, originally inspired by ice cream dishes from the 1904 World's Fair, serves as the signature vessel for various drinks, often filled with beer. Our handmade toasted ravioli has become a customer favorite and a testament to our dedication to culinary excellence. There are so many delicious menu items to try when you visit!

Our Story

In 1957, the culinary journey of Rigazzi's began when partners Lou Aiazzi and John Riganti opened the doors of their establishment on the Northeast corner of The Hill. Combining their last names, Riganti and Aiazzi, they coined the name 'Rigazzi's.' Delighted that it resembled the Italian word 'ragazzi,' meaning 'friends,' the partners envisioned their restaurant as a place for forging new connections and creating lasting memories with old friends. Rigazzi's became a haven where every customer was embraced like an old friend, creating a tradition that endures to this day.
