Riganato Old World Grille
Our ingredients are all fresh, locally sourced, and organic when available. They are traditionally prepared, producing classic old world flavors. It's old country tradition with modern culinary twist!
Our first time here and a great experience. Excellent food, excellent service, met the owner who is awesome.
We will be back!
First time here. Food was great, nice atmosphere, friendly owner. Will be back soon!
We had a reservation for 12, but only 9 showed. The space was perfect and the server was great! Our party had the fried zucchini, beets and octopus for appetizers, YUM! We had 2 pizzas, the salmon, several pasta dishes and burgers and everyone loved their food! The flourless chocolate cake was fabulous! Would definitely come back again.
This was our first time to Riganato Old World Grill. It won’t be our last! The restaurant was busy and we understand why. It was worth the 30 minute drive. The quaint old house setting only enhanced the overall dining experience. The food (appetizers and entrees) were perfectly done and tasty, and the waitress and staff were friendly, outgoing and attentive. A real neighborhood gem! Can’t wait to go back!
Very tasty and varied dishes are offered. Very strong on fish and seafood dishes as well as pasta. Good selection of beer and wine, but cocktails somewhat limited. Unclear whether Greek or Italian restaurant. I saw two large dining rooms and they were both filled to the brim with customers on a Wed evening. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
The food is great, the table and service was lacking. Our dining experience with a 3 person reservation started out with us being placed in the back corner of the room blocking the exit door. We ordered appetizers and drinks which arrived quite promptly. Our meals took just a bit longer, but for a nice fresh delicious meal, who cares! The meals were delicious (definitely try the meatballs). We ordered a second round of drinks and as the restaurant got busy, our waitress forgot about us. Our second round of drinks were never delivered but appeared on the bill which they removed and apologized. Will definitely try again and recommend that you do too, hopefully with a better table and fantastic service to go along with the great food.
Hadn't been here in quite a while, but was pleasantly surprised. Waiter was prompt and attentive, did not have to wait long for drinks and food even though it was busy. Owner checked up on us and even sat with us to discuss carry out for the holidays. Only issue was they did not have our reservation made through Open Table.
We Dined on the Rigatoni Primavera w/added chicken and a bottle of wine....excellent. Cozy dining room in a beautiful older house. We've never been disappointed.
food great. our seating was jammed very close to other tables. noise level very high.
The food and service was great, but it was so loud, we were practically shouting at each other. Parking is a nightmare. Overflow parking is across Rt.38. Attempting to cross 4 lanes of traffic, without a crosswalk is awful.
Great service and Very Good Well Prepared and Presented Food! All Good! We’ll go again soon.
We ate here for the first time, it was delicious. And that was for every course. Service was great, just a great place to go.
Riganato is the best restaurant that I have been to in quite some time. Delicious food, generous portions, amazing ambiance. We will be back again!
The food as usual was excellent. Always like the variety of fish and meat dishes. Best kept secret in Geneva and one of the best restaurants in the Fox Valley area.
We really enjoy eating at Riganato’s . It’s like eating dinner with the family. The food is outstanding and it’s one of Geneva’s gems.
What a gem!! The menu is really good. The food was absolutely delicious! The portions were great. The atmosphere was upbeat and friendly. Would definitely recommend. We'll be going there often.
Pleasantly surprised how nice this location was, and how busy for a Thursday night. Glad we made reservation!
We both had the Chicken Riganato along with a bottle of wine....perfect.
We are never disappointed with the amazing food and service. We try to eat here at least a couple of times a month.
Best food in Geneva! Never disappointed
I think the food and quality was fair to good. There was nothing outstanding as much as my husband and I tried to find something. The food was just okay. The outside was cute and welcoming.
Nice place, but a little too loud.
Chicken lemon soup was great!
Steak kabob was ok.
Great food as always!
Service that could not do enough for us
Unpretentiousness date night!
You will not be disappointed. Chicken Riganato is delicious. Moist and falls off the bone. The Riganato meatball is large, flavorful and stuffed with cheese. This is a must have. The lamb chops are very good. Don’t want a full meal go with spinach salad and a bowl of the soup of the day. The cream of artichoke was so good.
The atmosphere, the wait staff and the owners are friendly & welcoming. Makes you feel at home.
Riganato is the best, always!!!
Genuine Italian food in a great location. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It does not matter what you order, it will be good. Nick's Calamari is a requirement for me when I go. The spaghetti and meatballs were perfect. The specials are all good. Just go.
Great food and service. I have never had a bad experience there. Love It!!
Service and staff were fantastic, this is why we continually pick Riganato when we go out.
This is a hidden neighborhood gem. Good food and excellent service.
Off the Charts -Great food. brought my son and his wife and her family for their first visit. They raved about their food- Lasagna, creamy tortellini, Thai pizza. My daughter in law said " this is now my favorite restaurant." A great place to take family or friends. Prices are very reasonable considering the excellent food quality. We are going back this coming Saturday with out of town family. It is our go to restaurant, so much choice on the menu. My husband calls it Italian/ Greek fusion.. Try the pork tenderloin, it is delicious and so is the Chicken lemon rice soup. Service is always attentive even when they are busy. Can be a bit noisy but it is a small place and part of the charm. Save room for the tiramisu. Oh- and be sure to make reservations especially on weekends. The word is out and this place is busy!
We both had the Whitefish entree along with sides and a bottle of wine.
Quaint, authentic and reliably delicious every time.
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend to go
Enjoyable meal. Friendly service.
It's a nice little family owned place with a relaxed feel. The cozy atmosphere is quite lovely for a family dinner but it also seemed romantic enough in case you want to go for a date. I will be returning to try more dishes. The Lasagna and Capellini Al Pesto were delicious. The Butternut Squash Gnocchi isn't for everyone though. The salty/sweet taste of it was good for some and a little too much for others. The fried zucchini appetizer was definitely a miss with everyone. While it was nicely fried and crunchy, the taste itself was bland. I can honestly say that the staff were very nice too. I'm in an electric wheelchair and they admitted that they don't get many people in wheelchairs like mine but they moved quite a bit around to accommodate me. Even some of the other patrons got up to help move things for me. Take it from someone that goes out to eat quite a bit, not every where are the people that friendly. The service was also quite friendly and attentive. Lastly, pricing was totally worth the mean and portions. So I highly recommend Riganatos if you want good, authentic Italian food.
Fantastic service -- fast, cheerful, helpful servers. The food was delicious! I had the chicken kabob and my friend had the pasta special (pasta pinwheels with cheese-stuffed meatball and sausage). The portions were huge, the flavors delicious, and the presentation appealing. We will definitely return to this restaurant if we are ever back in this area!!
The meatballs & calamari we both too cold, and the meat balls tasted a slight cut above chef boy-ar-dee. Maybe they had the chef B team in, but overall, Would not recommend
