Joe Rigatoni's is a disgracefull excuse for an italian restruant!!! When dining in the food we recieved was of poor quality and by the time are drinks arrived (after asking after them many times!) we had pratically finished our meals, not impressed. However worse then their dining in experience is their delivery service, the first time we ordered from them I couldn't fault them, food was on time and super tasty!! second time the food was 20 mins late (so arrived 1 hour and 20 mins after ordering) then the food we were given wasn't even our order!! we decided to give them another chance assuming our second experience to be a one off, but NEVER again will I eat from there!

Joe Rigatonis is a realy big bug bear with me. I wont eat there despite the fact my partner loves it. Each time I go in, I have terrible experiences and I have had to draw a line under it. There are several branches of the restaurant locally, Middlesbrough is the restaurant I am reviewing, but there are also branches in Darlington, Stockton, Yarm and Hartlepool. They have a happy hour between 12noon - 2.30pm & 5pm - 6.45pm (weekdays) and 12noon - 6.30pm (weekends). During this time you can get any pizza or pasta for £5.95 (some like seafood / mixed pizza pasta have a surcharge of £1/£2), any Chicken dish for £8.95 and any burger for £6.95. This saves you ...

If you are looking for good, healthy food then do not go here. The cuts of meat were awful, pork ribs barely had any meat on them and were covered in fat. Seafood tagliatelli had gritty and very low quality mussels involved. Even the wine had to be replaced! Probably best for large groups of people on a stag/hed do who arn't too bothered about paying lots for very poor food and atmosphere.

I have personally never dined at the Middlesbrough branch of Joe Rigatoni's, however we as a family have dined at the Stockton-on-Tees many times and have always found the service to be very good and the food delicious. I would particularly recommend the Insalata Capresse starter (mozzarella, beef tomato and avacado) and the vegetarian pasta with mushrooms, i'm sure it's very fattening but it is delicious, and the portion sizes are just right. They also do amazing chips! The children's menu is good, with a couple of the usual staples, e.g. chicken nuggets etc. but these are "proper" pieces of chicken in breadcrumbs as opposed to mcdonalds rubbish! ...

I have been twice to the stockton Rigatoni's. The 1st visit was a good one and the food was excellent and it was all in all an enjoyable evening. However my 2nd visit was terrible, was seated at some tiny table that 2 plates would hardly fit on and it was very uncomfortable, it must have been the worst table in the place. There was plenty of other tables free so when i politely asked to be moved i got to experience some attitude off two male waiters, it was embarrasing that they couldnt handle the simplest of requests. I wouldnt go back or recommend them after all you pay for the service as well as the food!! there are much better places to go if you hunt about for them.
