Can't argue with a full house

Called last minute on Saturday. We were a little unsure as my son said you can't book, but 5 minutes away we called and asked if they could do 4 adults and a baby in highchair straight away, they said get here in 5 minutes and they did. Well its been many years since I was last in here... read more

Came here recently with some friends for an evening meal. First time that I had been in years, so I was quite excited! We were seated straight away, and the service was good. My starter was beautiful, salmon and crayfish. My main started out well, pasta bake, until I got halfway through and discovered a very long hair mixed in... More

We decided to give Rinaldis a try after hearing friends and family rave about the place so many times...Originally we thought about going on Mothers day but instead changed our mind and decided to go on a saturday lunch time. Upon arrival, we could see that the restaurant was nicely populated but not over bearing and we were welcomed with... More

After reading the reviews on here, I felt I had to leave a review of my experiences. I have been visiting Rinaldis for several years now and have never had anything but fantastic service, a great atmosphere, the food is amazing and very good value for money. I can't help but feeling that the bad reviews are extremely unfair, yes... More

The restaurant from the onset looks very sleek and stylish, but the Food is very basic for the heavy price tag and the service is slow and clumsy, and after hearing about the ZERO hygiene rating! I would be giving this place a wide birth form now on!!!

We dined here last night (Saturday) with the in-laws and had a fantastic meal/evening. Arrived to find the restaurant extra busy, probably down to pay day weekend, and we're advised the wait would be about an hour for a table. We always know there will be a wait on a Saturday evening, so we have a few drinks in the... More

We visited Rinaldi last night, I have visited previously around 10 years ago and some how never got around to returning . I think the main reason is it alway looks so busy! . Last night we were out early and got seated at around 5.30, good timing as within a short space of time the restaurant was full. I... More

We came here for my uncles birthday and asked if they could seat twelve of us, they told us it would be an hours wait at the most. It was only after two hours that they actually seated us in the restaurant. To make matters worse, while we were still waiting they brought out the cake and hand it to... More
