We went to Rinata for dinner last night, our first time there. The setting is charming and intimate. We were led into the main dining room, a little bigger and less crowded, and a very pleasant space. Jessica, our waiter, was friendly, helpful and unpretentious. We ordered the house red, a Barbera (an excellent, medium-bodied and nicely-balanced everyday red), and... More

Restaurant week fail. We did not find the food as delicious as those who posted as such. While beautiful the food tasted very average. The ambiance was ok though clearly they can spend a little on modernizing and updating a very dated space. Service was good I was just left wanting.

I have drove by this for years. Was I surprised how amazing the food was! They had a party so our waitress was really busy but took the time to check in and be friendly. The food was soooo delicious and I can be picky!

The service was good, great location with free parking just behind the restaurant.The food was ok, I would not call it authentic Italian but rather 'semi-americanized' Italian. Our entrées had a strong butter taste. The monk fish was on the salty side, not quite fresh, but I do understand that we are located in Minnesota. One detail worth mentioning here.... More

Enjoyed my meal of fresh and spicy pasta. The appetizer was delicious. Best part was the service which was friendly and knowledgeable.

I had a birthday party in this restaurant with friends and everyone was satisfied with what they had. For mine, I ordered wild boar pasta and it was perfect! Too bad that I didn't order dessert.

This is now my favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities. The bread served before the meal is so delicious, it should be illegal. Oh, so warm...so amazing dipped in the olive oil / tapenade dip. The spaghetti and meatballs are the best I've EVER had, and you must save room for the Tiramisu. The place is not fancy, and the... More

It is so obvious when everything is made on site with fresh ingredients. Great pizza is always an easy test of quality. Homemade ravioli - squash in this case mat the test. This is just a small space but offers great service, lovely fresh entrees, nice wine selection. Very reasonable prices as well,I always a bonus.

I wish I'd known about this place earlier, as I come to Minneapolis frequently. The food is Italian -- obviously homemade. Chicken and red lentil soup is fantastic. Spaghetti and meatballs also. I've been there twice now, and have found the wait staff consistently helpful and the food consistently good -- and also a good value. Food is made to... More

Great taste in a quaint, cozy location. Wait staff was excellent and the pizza was delicious. Bartender doesn't skimp on the mixer either. Well done all around.
