Our favourite local restaurant by a long way! Even when it's quiet (by Rinaldi's standards!) there is still a great buzz about the place and when it is busy, it is positively vibrant. The owner Glyn and his friendly and efficient staff greatly assist in making this a great experience. The menu is just big enough to give plenty of... More

Visited to celebrate our daughters 40th Birthday, our group was 11 people.. We received a warm welcome from the waiting staff and had a reserved table. The menu is Italian Cuisine prepared to the highest of standards from wonderful starters through to mouthwatering Mains, and scrumptious Deserts. Wine and beers are reasonably priced for a Restaurant of this quality. The... More

Fabulous food, great atmosphere, fab staff and good price, what more could you ask for??! You can't make reservations here so get there early or be prepared to sit and have a drink.

Saturday Evening Review The food is good - but it is a restaurant and this is their key business. Service is reasonable but the itch is how the place is managed; We found ourselves waiting for an hour after arrival. They do not take bookings / reservations (not at the weekend I do not know about midweek) The place is... More

A mistake with a wrong salad was spotted by the waiter on delivery and changed in two minutes. Food was good quality and portions were... More

If you could book a table in advance I would award Rinaldi's an excellent, but you have to turn up and take your chance and this can take the edge off the evening if you have a long wait. I have always found the quality of the food to be very good, from simple pasta's, pizza's through to seafood and... More
