A little place west of downtown Geneva ! Looks like an old house. The food is amazing! Wanted too try everything! I highly recommend the meat balls. You can't miss with this place. Small place but you will love it.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! The gluten free options seemed almost endless and the food was amazing. Our waitress was very personable and had a great sense of humor. We can't wait to go back!

There was a group of 6 and we had a nice round table in the corner. We went mid-week and it was not too crowded so we could enjoy conversation. Tables are close so weekends might be quite noisy.

We went to Raganatos based on other trip advisor reviews that the food was made fresh and that they were accomodating for allergies. We could not have been more pleased with our decision. We are dealing with a soy allergy and have sodium restrictions. The waittress and owner/chef went way out of their way to ensure that they prepared food... More

If you want a completely different culinary experience in the tri-cities, you MUST go to Riganato's. We've gone probably 10 times in the past year (my apologies for not reviewing sooner 😬) and I have never had a meal that I would say was less than excellent. It's a great combination of Italian and Greek...so you can have lamb chops... More

Atmosphere warm and friendly on a Saturday night. Food delicious and our server as well as the owner and chef came out to talk to us and ask how everything was. Our 12 year old grand daughter was going to get a regular portion of the spaghetti and meatballs, but our waitress graciously suggested that the kids portion is more... More

We've been going to Riganato Old World Grille since they have opened. If your looking for a delicious meal, that's made from scratch, then look no further. Their selection of appetizers, such as giant meatballs, calamari, fried or grilled zucchini are not to be missed. They also have beets, served in a salad or on their own with olive oil,... More

We took my 84 year old mother (visiting from Az) to Riganato's on Christmas Eve. Having lived in Chicago for many years, she originally wanted to go to Greektown for Lamb chops, but he cold and weather was a bit too much for her. After a bit of research, I found Riganato...we live in Elgin and frequent downtown Geneva but... More

Excellent food every visit! We've never had a bad experience. The food is always amazingly fresh and it's a great value. Recommend the kabobs the pizza and the soup. Soups are made fresh daily.

We moved to Geneva from Connecticut, home of Pepe's in New Haven and RoseLand Pizza and it took us forever to find a perfect thin crust, pie sliced, pizza. Riganato certainly fits the bill. The staff is so friendly and all the food is great. We think it is like finding gold! It can get crowded so call for reservation.... More
