The service was good and so was the food. Food came out timely and was well prepared and very enjoyable. Tables are very close together, but that didn't bother me. Hostess was nice and got us drinks while we waited for our table.

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.

We are fortunate to have so many great restaurants in the St. Charles / Geneva area. But Riganato always rises to the top for us. The food and service never disappoint.

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 waitress came to our table and took our drink order all with in 10 minutes of us walking in the door. Nice people to visit with a real feel for customer satisfaction.

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.

The food is delicious. Good-sized portions. Lots of variety. We had a waitress that was very attentive. Bite-sized desserts so you can have a sweet without the guilt. The noise level is a little high but you can still have a conversation without yelling.

The food is overrated and mediocre at best. It is not an Italian restaurant. It is Mediterranean. The meal I had was pasta with sausage and meatball. Not authentic. Sauce was tart and just average. I thought we were going to an Italian restaurant but don't be fooled. It is not. Will not go back.

We eat at Riganato fairly regularly. The food and service are always excellent. Everything on the menu is good- pizza, pasta, meat entrees, etc. Their ricotta-stuffed meatballs and their marinara sauce are standout items.

The cuisine - amazing Mediterranean combo of Greek/Italian inspired offerings.
The fish served was sublime.

Have gone back to Riganato's again and as always food and service is great. My wife had the char-broiled Chilean Sea Bass and I tried the Rustic Lasagna. We also had some appetizers. We had the roasted beets which is fantastic and the grilled octopus as well. Overall Riganato's has everything from sandwiches ,pizza and great entrees from steak to seafood and chicken. I would definitely recommend trying their cuisine. It will be worth the trip.

We love Riganato!!!!! We go there for our special occasions & we’re never disappointed with the food, atmosphere & the great people who serve us. Karen, our waiter person on Friday, was delightful & we absolutely adored the way she led us in the “happy birthday” song to my husband. It was such a memorable evening, thanks to Karen & the staff.
