Riggio'sWelcome to Our Restaurant

IN 1952 ADREANA RIGGIO, together with her husband, Pasquale, two daughters and two sons, opened a little storefront pizzeria in the Northcenter neighborhood of Chicago. It was an era when, hard as it is to believe, pizzerias were not on every corner. In fact, Riggio's was one of the first pizzeria restaurants to open in Chicago.

TODAY THE FAMILY CARRIES ON the proud heritage of the woman who everyone called "Mama." Many of those neighborhood children return for the deliciously familiar tastes and smells of Mama's cooking. Our customers are our family, sharing our dishes from La Terra del Sole: The Land of the Sun.

WE FEATURE REGIONAL ITALIAN CUISINE, host fantastic banquets and cater your events. With a full lunch and dinner menu, free parking and enthusiastic service, our quality and value are mixed in the perfect pasta bowl.

COME SOCIALIZE WITH FRIENDS or make new ones at our bar. Enjoy our full selection of wines, mixed drinks and both domestic and imported beer while you chat or watch the latest game. The full fare of our menus are also available in the lounge.
