Rigoletto

Rigoletto is a family run Italian restaurant, situated on the Bicester Road close to Middleton Stoney. We are also only a 5-10 minute drive from Bicester Village. The restaurant is set in idyllic surroundings with ample car parking.

Serving a varied menu of Italian dishes and an excellent selection of wines. We believe in offering great service without any pretence.

One review of “Rigoletto”

    Amy Gault

    2nd November 2017

    There is an English saying: “All Shell and No Substance” – The opposite couldn’t be more true for this little Italian gem. Not far from Oxford and on the edge of the beautiful and quaint village of Middleton Stoney you will find Rigoletto – A slice of old fashioned Italy.

    We received the warmest of welcomes from Proprietor Giorgio Delli-Compagni who showed us to our table and served us for the entire evening.

    Oh my is the food good…! I was advised that the bresaola with a home made fig syrup was the starter to choose, and it was well advised! Sticky sweet fig syrup was poured with a flourish liberally over the tender slices of mozzarella and bresaola. Not to be outdone, my husband Marcus chose the grilled sardines, simple, honest food – You can’t go wrong.

    For mains, Marcus went for the veal in a lemon butter as a main course, a controversial choice for many but he said it really was sumptuous. My choice of slow cooked pork wrapped in spec ham with a Morello cherry sauce was equally worthy of good comments. Again, simple ingredients but used expertly and too many to befuddle and confuse the palate; just a “lick the plate clean” course and a hope that you have enough room for the dessert trolley… Yes, trolley! A vast array of beautifully heart-clogging, deliciously blood-clotting, and magnificently weight-gaining deserts to choose from.

    I went for a passion fruit panna cotta with delicate slices of oranges in syrup and it was truly mouth watering. It melted in your mouth and was hands down the most delicious panna cotta I have ever tried. I told this to Giorgio and he wasn’t surprised… He made it, you see!

    Giorgio wanted to show me that he could also make the best zabaglione right here at the table, but unfortunately I’ll have to wait for that show until the next time I venture into this little slice of Italy… Perhaps after I’ve dieted for a few days beforehand!
