Riganato's has an outstanding and extensive gf menu and they are very careful to avoid cross contamination. The food is amazing!!! We love their mixed grill with lamb chops, a pork chop and an Italian sausage! Their burgers and pizza are also amazing. Have never had a bad meal and have never been sick afterward.

I had the Bleu cheese burger on a gluten free bun with a side of Greek lemon chicken egg soup. The burger was fantastic, as was the soup.

Cozy place, good food. Staff are friendly and can accommodate other food allergies, too. GF menu now lists clearly that fried foods are NOT fried in a dedicated fryer, which is helpful.

We have eaten here several times and I feel super safe. They have a large gf menu and they take cc very seriously, Only thing I wouldn't order, per the owner if you have Celiac, is the pizza. He makes the dough in house, same as the regular dough. He couldn't say how much flour is in the air. So he wouldn't reccomend it.

One the most flavorful GF meals I have had. The owners are very careful to go out of their way to make you feel safe. They have a whole section of the menu. This is a scratch kitchen which is familiar with the needs of GF eaters.

They had nice variety of items in the GF section of the menu. It’s amazing that such a small restaurant is thoughtful enough to have a GF section. I can’t wait to go back there.

Gluten Free menu clearly identifies options. GF menu lists House-cut Fries but helpfully states they are “Not cooked in a dedicated Gluten Free deep fryer”. I had the grilled Pork Chops with lemon oregano roasted potatoes. Both were nicely seasoned, but chops were somewhat over cooked. House Chianti bottle was very good and reasonably priced.

There is a separate GF menu with many options, from pizza to pasta to sandwiches. There is usually a GF soup available. The Italian sausage sandwich is excellent. This is not a dedicated GF kitchen, but they seem to take care. I have eaten here many times within issue.

Absolutely phenomenal. I had gluten free calamari here on Thursday. I never thought I would be able to eat calamari in a restaurant again. It was so good. I was thrilled. So much in fact that we went back on Friday. I had the chicken riganato and French fries. It was awesome. The owner was wonderful and knowledgable. He was so friendly and attentive. My only regret is that I don't live in Illinois or I would go back here every day. I went here while on a trip for work.

I had one of the worst meals ever. The pasta was mush mixed with soggy veggies and the chicken had a sharp bone in it.

You know you hit a home run when the gluten free menu is about the same size as their regular menu. They are adding a great tasting gluten -removed beer on their menu from a local brewery.

The food is incredible and they really care about their guests. The special tonight came with a gluten containing cream sauce and without my asking them, they offered to whip up a gluten free version of the sauce. The pizzas are to die for!

Hubby & I went and yes they have GF penne pasta & pizza. However, the server did not seem to be sure of other GF options so I stuck the pizza because oenne pasta can disintegrate. It tasted good however was not sure if the sauce and cheese were GF since had some minor issues later. The server was nice and it is a quaint little restaurant. Hubby felt the italian sausage was less than average.
