I went here last night with my Mum. We turned up around 6pm without a reservation and I think we got the last table. I haven't been here for around 18 years as I got food poisoning. I can't remember much else from my previous visit but I have to say I was extremely impressed with everything. The decor was... More

The food is amazing! I've been a lot of times and tried pretty much everything on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The food is brilliant - great fresh food with lovely flavours. The atmosphere is nice - although can get a little too noisy. The staff are always very polite and competent. I have always enjoyed going... More

This was our first revisit to Rinaldis Restaurant since it changed hands from the original founders some years ago. However the food and wine menu choices were still excellent, including the daily blackboard menu, and we had a very enjoyable meal. The service was very good and attentive, with plenty of advice from the proprietor on our choice. The atmosphere... More

Took my partner here for his birthday last night. It was a perfect evening. Food was delicious,staff were attentive,and the atmosphere was wonderful. This is a prime example of how a restaurant should be. Will definitely be going back and will recommend to friends and family

Atmosphere, staff, and most of all the food, brilliant and well priced the specials always worth a look at. I’ve never been there when it hasn’t been at least 75% full in the evening. Try the steaks and the pastas, what the kitchen work and join in the birthday celebrations.

Small bar area and far too long to wait -once seated in restaurant again lengthy wait would appear if you are part of the in crowd served much quicker -however the pasta dish I had was lovely -a suggestion perhaps have a booking system?

Firstly, the food here has always been excellent. All the classic Italian dishes and a good variety of veal, liver and seafood options from the menu and the specials board. Portions are generous, it's always arrived hot and at the same time. Kids can make their own pizzas, which always keeps them occupied as they trade mushrooms for pepperoni etc... More
