A few years ago, I watched a clip about Rino's Place on the Food Network. What struck me most was the authentic Italian tradition and ingredients that the chef used in preparing each dish as well as the layering of flavors. My son and I finally made it to Rino's recently and had what I would describe as a mixed... More

So my wives brother called us in October and told us a friend of his made reservations for this great little Italian place in East Boston and we had to come. Said you needed to call 3 -4 weeks in advance for reservations. Everyone has to be there by the start time or they give your reservation up. Wow, must... More

Seating Warning: this restaurant is ideal for takeout but has minimal tables for dining in. Grant yourself a 20-40 minute wait in your warm parked car with your friends before expected to be seated. There is no space to wait inside. I dined inside and had the lobster ravioli. It was hearty, large ricotta ravioli but with incredible flavor. Great... More

This is the second good Italian restaurant i've visited in East Boston and i'm happy to say Rino's is an excellent choice, if your very, very hungry. I'm told there's a line every weekend, however we were there on a cool Saturday night and there was no line. They don't take reservations for small parties, which i find strange as... More

On the recommendation of a friend from East Boston, Rino's was the "must go" choice for my day-trip to Boston. A truly great meal that rivaled some recent great eats I had in Verona and Venice. Sopa Del Mar for me and Pasta Bolognese for my nephew. Great food, service and a friendly neighborhood atmosphere.

Completely blown away by the flavor, freshness & portions! The presentation was excellent and the staff was super friendly. I had the eggplant & veal combo with the homemade ravioli(huge) it was great! This was my first time here, but it will be a regular stop from now on when in Boston.

We stopped by Rino's on our way back to the airport, wanting to avoid north Boston parking. We were delightfully impressed with the quality of their food. Their Seafood Cannelloni is AMAZING!!! Great food and great service. Quiet atmosphere that's easy to have a conversation without loud music.

We saw this place on Diners, Drive ins and Dives. Guy raved about the fresh pasta- made, to order... And it was awesome. We started with the mozzarella balls, and bruschetta for appetizers. They were both awesome. We also got side salads: mine was a vinaigrette (a bit more dressing than necessary), and my husband's was caesar. Dinner was Rino's... More

Went to Rino's on a Saturday afternoon. Opens at 3pm. Got there 3:30. Waited about an hour to be seated. Worth the wait. Great service. Great selection of Italian or other choices, as well, if you don't want Italian. Enough choices to please any one. Everything we ordered was delicious. Every plate that passed by us to other tables, also... More
