WOW, what a concept! Fresh ingredients, family recipes and fine dining flavors.

Castro Valley

From the founder of Strizzi’s Restaurants comes an incredible concept that combines the best of fine dining with the value and convenience of a fast-casual restaurant. It is from our original 54 seat location that we have grown a huge tradition of great pasta. At Rigatoni’s we’re all about the pasta! But, it’s not just the pasta . . . it’s about the sauces too! Since our sauce recipes go back for at least 4 generations you will experience our real Italian family traditions. In May 1996 the small suburban Castro Valley, California community was eagerly awaiting the opening of our very first Rigatoni’s Restaurant. Its overwhelming popularity was quickly evident.



In June of 1999, Rigatoni’s opened its’ second location in Dublin, California. As the city and its’ surrounding communities began to enjoy dining on orders of our signature “Rigatoni Bolognese” or our incredibly popular “Spaghetti & Meatballs” they quickly made Rigatoni’s one of their favorite regular stops. Our newest location opened in December of 2007 in Hayward, California. It is located at one of the city’s busiest intersections not far from Chabot Community College and the Hayward Municipal Airport, and is a popular destination for students, local business people and the residential community.


At Rigatoni’s we specialize in pan-tossed to order pasta. We start with a half-pound of pasta in every dish and then add one of our incredible sauces. Next we top off the dish with variations such as delicious grilled chicken or authentic Italian sausage and savory oven roasted meatballs to bring out the WOW. We feature Ravioli, Lasagna, Tortellini and our mouthwatering Grilled Chicken that is marinated, grilled and topped with fresh sautéed mushrooms. Try one of our delicious salads, our Chicken Parmesan or our tasty Meatball Sandwich. All orders come with our self-service bread and olive oil bar. You can enjoy a delicious array of freshly baked breads with a side of extra virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar. Many of our frequent guests comment on the wide variety of menu choices as well as how great the food tastes. No matter what you choose, you are sure to love it!


At Rigatoni’s we serve “the best darn food since grandma’s house!”. But, you be the judge …. so bring the family and enjoy all that we have to offer! Just remember though, be ready for the WOW!
