Went for a family meal with my daughters and my partner, arriving early evening - just after 6pm. We were shown straight to a table, which was good, as you can't book - a mistake I feel on weekend nights at least. The menu is very good,and there is a specials board which listed some very tasty sounding dishes. We... More

First visit, following recommendation from friends. You cannot book a table but have to turn up and take pot luck.. We went early and did not have to wait, but I'm told it can get very busy later with consequent long queues. The up side, we are told, is it can have a very nice 'buzz' to the atmosphere. The...

I dined recently with my husband, my mum, stepdad and sister. We arrived just after 6.00pm and were greeted and promptly seated in one of the booths. Unfortunately we were sat next to a table of 4 women with 4 girls aged about 10/11 years old (2 of them were celebrating their birthdays). The parents did not control the girls... More

I visited rinaldi's last week with some friends for our friends pre wedding meal. We had booked a time but as we were running behind schedule they were more than happy to push our booking back to a time that suited us. The staff were very friendly and ensured the 2 young children that came with us were entertained with... More

The trouble with rinaldi isn't so much the food it's the inconsistent service. I ate there last night after a 45 minute wait (which we didn't mind at all) we were given a great table and I must say the new decor is great. The first guy who started to serve us came across like he wanted to chastise us... More
