We decided on an early dinner before our vacation on a Saturday, thank goodness we got there before the doors opened at 3pm...we got the last table but it was worth the wait! The staff was friendly and entertaining and the food did not disappoint! For appetizers we had clams cooked with garlic and wine, asparagus wrapped with prosciutto served... More

Fresh made pastas. Majority of entrees come with Italian bread and butter and a salad. The pasta portions are enormous. You can share an appetizer and a main course between two people with no problem. We have shared the spiral pasta, gnocchi and ravioli. For appetizer, the buffalo mozerella and tomatoes is great. We have ordered a full and half... More

Seriously Rino's makes exceptional Italian food. Pasta is homemade. I had the chicken, broccoli fettuccine Alfredo. The flavor was exceptional. Veal parmigiana for my sister in law and lobster ravioli for my brother in law, both exceptional and flavorful. Busy restaurant but we never felt rushed.

Not ideal for families with kids, but would make a great place to go on a date or business meeting. When you first walk in be careful not to open the door too quickly, there is a table right there and you might hit someone. You are packed in there like sardines. But the food is absolutely delicious, I got... More

We arrived at the Boston airport and headed straight to Rino's. The lobster ravioli was absolutely wonderful! A lot of ravioli filled w chunks of lobster in a great tomato cream sauce also with chunks of lobster. My husband had the Rino special w shrimp, chicken cutlet and veal cutlet in a cream sauce over pasta. He enjoyed every bite.... More

Save your money and time. Excessive wait, poor communication from staff and very average experience characterize Rinos. Go to the north end and any random restaurant will out cook and out match this average Italian food eatary. Don't waste your time......

My boyfriend and I have been here a total of 3 times and fall in love with this place all over again each time. The most recent trip was for my moms birthday, and this restaurant once again failed to disappoint. With flavorful appetizers such as the seared scallops and crab cakes to downright delicious entrees such as their seafood... More

We had a great visit to rinos! Staff was beyond friendly... the food is delicious, old school Italian with a few unique add-ons. Share appetizers, if you get and you have to try more than one dish... the meals are HUGE. Just go order and take it home! We had everything possible as we were a large party and minus... More

Rino's is one of those gems in East Boston that makes your mouth water thinking about homemade Italian food! Truly a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The restaurant is small, reminding me of the North End in Boston. Reservations can only be made for parties of 6 or 8 or more I believe. Normally quite busy for dinner but... More
