Service was a little slow but it worked out well because we didn't want to be rushed and just sit and talk for a while.

This place never disappoints and is the best restaurant we've ever been to in the area. The food is always prepared perfectly and is very flavorful and the owners and staff care about their customers. If you want to try unique Mediterranean Cuisine with a unique flair, Riganato is a can't miss choice.

Great food, not afraid to apply seasoning; stuffed roasted peppers are great but the sea bass and white fish were outstanding.

There was a party of at least ten women at a table next to us celebrating a birthday. That made the restaurant very noisy.

Hidden Gem! We found them in the coupon mailer and wanted to try somewhere new. The coupon was not good for Friday night but we went anyway and we are super glad we did. It's a small, cozy cute dining room - feels very homey. I would make reservations since it is so small - we did. The prices were very reasonable - the portions were large. The bread was outstanding, lasagna was the best we have found anywhere near this area. Cesar salad was amazing and the pizza as well. We will be back soon to try other menu items. Oh , the meatball appetizer......definitely try that.

Lovely, cozy restaurant with friendly staff, artful environs and outstanding, fresh food. The only problem is the noise on a busy night.

Great service and time to enjoy our meal. Delicious birthday cake delivered in a sweet timely manner

Very special place!

Small, quaint, good service, solid food, excellent sangria. Doesn't have a bar to sit at to await reservation time. Glad it was a Sunday night and not too crowded - no waiting. I would gladly dine here again.

We were here celebrating Valentines with friends that have been to this restaurant before. The staff is always very nice the food is out of this world and their homemade sangria‘s are delicious. I thought for sure being the weekend of Valentines it would be really busy but being able to make a reservation a week ahead of time really helped out

Food was outstanding! They had a big gluten free menu! Although we waited a very long time for our food but we were with friends so it gave us more time to visit. The manager(or owner?) kept apologizing and even bought a round of drinks. I totally will go back to try other foods.

Quick same day reservation on "Open Table" - we're pretty booked but got in early! Small quaint dining room - fire place - felt like what I'd imagine a small eatery in Italy might feel. Quicker service- great bread and wine. Had the meatballs with rigatoni - very very good!! Extensive Gluten Free menu (essential for my wife). Off the 3rd street drag in Geneva but soooo worth it! Go you won't be disappointed.

Very nice place fast service and real good food. We made reservations for 6:00 we arrived 15 min early and were taken to our table right away.

The Cream of Artichoke soup was delicious. The Black Angus Shishkabob was cooked to my liking. Beet salad was also tasty. We had dessert which we normally don't eat as we have enough at home. I had German chocolate cake and wife had cannoli. Service was up to par as it is with the good waitstaff.
