the service was good except our waitress never told us her name and had no name tag on. The food presentation was excellent- loved the menu except the salad had little dressing or added ingredients except for the blue cheese cracker and watermelon pickle- the salad was mostly frisee, which was not that great. loved the amuse buche, swordfish and dessert-

We have been dining at Riganato Old World Grille for several years. The food is always excellent. We've tried at least half the menu offerings over the years and have never been disappointed. Portions are very large and always delicious. I highly recommend Riganato for Mediterranean cuisine!

About the restaurant
Nestled in the heart of downtown Western Springs, Petite Vie offers a menu curated with classic French dishes infused with Chef Paul Virant's signature flair. Spending time researching in France for inspiration, Virant has crafted every dish with meticulous attention to detail and a reverence for tradition.

Seating 65 guests, Petite Vie’s intimate space exudes the warmth and comfort of a traditional French brasserie, while seamlessly blending modern design elements. A collaboration between Virant, his wife Jennifer and long-time friend and designer Jody Tate, every detail at Petite Vie tells a story of meticulous craftsmanship and thoughtful curation.

Featuring French intricacy and layering, the space is a canvas of artistic expression, with artwork curated from both local talents and treasures acquired during the team's time in Paris. Framed prints, commissioned paintings, and a round antique mirror passed down through generations, adorn the walls, adding layers of intrigue.

The fixed price special is a nice deal for two. Chicken Marsala was delicious, and the Limoncello cake was a great topper to the meal.
