This was our first time visiting rinaldis and we will definitely be returning. We was a little disappointed about our 40 minute wait but realised why it was so busy when we had eaten as the food was very nice. Will definitely be returning :-)

myself and my girlfriend must have visited rinaldis 10 times in the past year. We have never had a bad experience, the food is great in particular the Steaks and the staff are always friendly. The place always has a buzzing atmosphere whatever day or time we visit. Don't change a thing!!

The manager attended our table and talked to us and it was all very pleasant. When our food came it was exceptional and we were all pleased that we had chosen... More

This was a return visit, we were so disappointed that a disabled customer was discriminated against and the manager stood by and allowed a regular customer to swear at a group of dinners to the point where he supported her and the innocent group had to leave. This was totally unacceptable customer service and I shall not visit the restaurant... More

It has taken me two days to calm down so I can reply to this review, for those that don't understand the review, this is the third review from the same table where we closed a window and this gentleman has said we have discriminated against a disabled person by doing so! It later transpires that a member of this... More

I know we have already reviewed this lovely restaurant but felt compelled to give another opinion after our 1st visit. To our delight, upon arrival Nigel immediately recognised us especially our youngest boy whom he even remembered his name (not bad considering it's been 5 weeks since we last visited. Taking our order was the lovely Natalie, who was attentive... More

Had a great family lunch. The meal was outstanding value with good portions and of course very tasty. The menu is extensive with lots of choice. The staff were always on hand and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This lunch time was my first visit to Rinaldi's. This is a place I have passed by so many times and always intended to visit. Now I'm glad I took the time. Food - Linguini and meatballs for me and a Pollo a la crema affair for my wife were nicely presented and very tasty. I abstained from chips which... More

Went on a busy night on spec. They had a party of 45 in. As solo diner you always get seated quickly and I was. Their rose wine was beautiful served in a large luxury glass which made the experience very decadent. I had the vegetarian calzone; which was just the right portion size & tasted great. The mixed salad... More

I managed to order exactly what I wanted and it was yummy. Wine was nice, service excellent. Not been for awhile and last time I went I was a little... More
