Extensive menu with great choices, but the portions are HUGE, so you might want to share some entrees.

Not impressed. Food was mediocre, tables were so close you could hardly find a path to the door. Husband commented that his tortellini was similar to the frozen bag grocery store type. My gnocchi paled in comparison to Cooper's Hawk. Sorry. No need to go back. (no complaints with service)

Food was great and value good. My only complaint is that our waitress was so unfriendly and we are an easy group! We tried to crack jokes, nothing could get her to smile. Kind of put a negative tone on our experience. Will give it another shot, because the food was good.

Its alway been a good experience but I used open Table for a 8:30 reservation and the receptionist made it sound like that was possible - I told her I had a reservation - she came back a second time and asked for my confirmation number which I had - it was annoying that she asked twice - not a open table issue it was hers.

Casual dining- food was excellent- like eating in someone’s home. It was very loud - even after the fire alarm was shut off by the fire department. But overall a great value. Service was a bit slower than I am used to in similar places.

We love Riganatos Okd World Grille. The fish choices on the menu are the best! The chef is accommodating to our requests and are always friendly. This is a small restaurant with a good atmosphere. Even the bus boy was outstanding-polite and willing to help out when asked. This is our favorite restaurant in the area.!

Sat 4/13 @6/30pm reservation. Family owned restaurant, extremely small dining room w/12 tables. Good service consisting of 1 waiter & 1 waitress. 2 runners bringing food and clearing. Food is reasonably priced, large portions. Little bit of everything from Soup, sandwiches and pasta. Parking is limited. We had to park across 38 street dodging traffic.

Drinks, apps, and entrees we're all fresh and above expectations. We enjoyed grilled octopus salad and gnocci the most!

Service was okay, but dining room was rather cramped during our stay. This was somewhat distracting with movement and noise, but it might be hard to improve as the restaurant is located in a former residential home.......quaint, but needing some updating and expansion.

Riganatos is my "go to" place because I know it will always be good. I like to go for lunch during the week because it is not crowded and the lunch specials are the high quality and one can visit with your friends without a lot of noise. I highly recommend giving it a try.......and you will also make it your "go to" place.

Great local restaurant with something for everyone on the menu. Appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, pizza to full dinners specializing with an Italian flair. Whether it’s lunch or dinner you are sure to find a dish that appeals to you. Their Greek lemon orzo soup is a delicious staple and the Riganato chicken never gets old.
Small bordering on intimate; I suggest a reservation on weekends! And don’t forget carry out or catering options.

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.
