Out of town and had lunch here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor... this restaurant is EXCELLENT...thank you TripAdvisor. The staff were over the top welcoming, friendly and informative. And the food was AMAZING! I had the chicken Riganto and a side of Riganato Al Salsiccia...WONDERFUL...and so much. We will return to Geneva just to dine at the restaurant.More

Our Party of 5 went to dinner on Saturday. The Fried Calamari was delicious. Pizza with pepperoni & sausage was great. Greek Pastitsio, was tasty, very authentic, and a huge serving for one person. I ordered the Cheese Tortellini, and my serving could feed 3...people. I am Italian, so sauce needs to be authentic. This was more like tomato paste thick, but not to my liking. Deserts were all very good. Limoncello Cake, mouth watering. The staff are all extremely friendly. There is a full menu, with selections to please everyone. There is a small outside patio. Tables inside were all social distanced.More

We have always loved this restaurant and the quality and love that goes into the preparation of their food. Recently we had take out for the first time at lunch and found that their luncheon portions are as large as the dinner ones and at...a very reasonable price. The Rigatoni Al Salsiccia is absolutely amazing as is their homemade ricotto stuffed meatballs, plus so many more. Thank you, Nicolaou Family, for bringing your Old World Italian dishes to us!More

We ate at the Riganato last night and I thought the food was amazing. Nick's calamari appetizer was especially good. My husband had a steak and it was cooked perfectly and my tortellini with italian sausage was wonderful and the portion super generous. We ate...outside and the all the servers wore masks, so it felt very safe in this COVID 19 season. The restaurant isn't on a popular downtown street, but you can enjoy the amazing food here then walk off your dinner on 3rd street.More

We had dinner here on a Saturday evening before our son’s hockey game. We had a large group of parents and 13/14 yr old boys. The staff was so accommodating and very friendly. Everyone really enjoyed their meal. Some had burgers, some had pasta, some...had the chicken kabobs, some had the Branzino special. We shared the octopus, mussels and beets appetizer-all very tasty. Good food and good atmosphere. We would definitely go back if in the area again!!More

Family run in a home like setting, Chef and owner Nick makes everything homemade. The setting is a former house so you're eating either in the living room or enclosed back porch. Everything is spotless. Lunch and dinner specials differentiate the menu, which is otherwise...the same at all meals. Prices are in the $10 to $16 range. The Italian sauces are fantastic. Always fresh and full of flavor. The kabobs are well seasoned. Everything here is really good. And because the kitchen is so close your meals always come out hot. The only downside is that when the dining room is full it can get noisy so ask for a table on the back porch, much quieter.More
