Driving through Geneva we thought we'd check Trip Advisor for a suggestion. Riganato's popped up with some nice reviews. We sure weren't disappointed. They have a cozy fireplace, quiet and efficient service and moderately priced food. The food was the star. We had the Chicken Riganato and it was some of the best chicken I've ever had, moist, freshly cooked with lots of spices. The Meditteranean spreads were a delightful appetizer with our wine and a great spinach salad to share made the meal complete. Weleft trying to figure out when we can visit again.

Riganato's is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant located of State Street in Geneva. I had the Ricotta stuffed meatballs and they were awesome. Would recommend this place to all my family and freinds!

This was our second trip back to Riganato's, and once again, the food, service and ambiance was exceptional. In fact, we now feel this is the best restaurant in Geneva. We went on a Thursday night and this small, quaint, homey restaurant was packed. It does get a little noisy because the restaurant is small, but it's well worth it. They have a lot of variety on the menu which is slanted towards Italian & Greek. My mother again got the chicken and lamb chops, my wife ordered the gluten free pizza (she said it's the best she's ever had) and I had the spaghetti and meatballs. The house salad before our entrees was delicious since it had olives, feta cheese and an awesome vinegarette. The entrees were cooked perfectly and seasoned very well. The service was friendly and efficient. The chef always comes out and talks to the customers which I feel offers a nice touch to the service and shows that he's interested in getting input on the quality that his kitchen is putting out. There are many good restaurants to choose from in Geneva, but in our opinion this is the very best.

Given all the great places to eat in Geneva, calling us the best really means a lot to us. We are still new and are still improving, but reviews like this are fantastic!!

We were there for the first time last night and were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted and seated immediately. I had the whitefish sauteed in rosemary and my husband had a pesto chicken paninis. They both were delicious. The owners did an excellent job on remodeling the building. It had become rundown and an eyesore on the east side of Geneva. The interior was light and airy; very clean. We will return.
