Popular venue, good food, recommended, may need patience when busy

Atmosphere good, food lovely, only downside can get busy because it is good. Stick with it. Not too pricy either, value for money.

I hardly write anything on trip advisor but felt compelled to do so about Rinaldi's. I've been going here with my daughter who is 9 for at least 6 years. If I ever ask her if she'd like to eat out this is always her choice of venue. We always get in at evening opening time usually on a Friday... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night, the place does not take bookings, so you have to wait for a table to suit the size of your party. In our case (party of six) we waited forty minutes. the bar was VERY busy, many just gave up waiting for a drink. Once we got seated, the service was good,... More

We had a party of seven people and every one of us enjoyed our meals thoroughly. Pizza's were cooked to perfection, no grease at all and very reasonably priced. Deserts were sublime and the hot chocolate was one of the best I've ever had!! As for the service, well, what can I say. BRILL-I-ANT! I think their names were Georgina... More

I visited this restaurant with my daughter on a Mum and daughter night out. She kept telling me I should visit as the menu, food and service are excellent. No wonder people are queuing to get a table, its great. Portions were good sizes (although a travesty that I couldn't finish my Tiramisu). The house red Merlot was excellent too.... More

This restaurant is local to us, but this was my first time trying here! The one glitch is that you can't book ahead but I do understand managements reasonings behind this, it gets busy! Which speaks for itself diners can't get enough of this place! While you wait there is a bar area you can sit in while a table... More

The restaurant does not offer a booking policy but as a group of 8 they managed to seat us within reasonable time together. There is a variety to choose from on the menu from salads, pastas, pizzas, steaks and the prices are reasonable too Will defiantly be visiting again

Visited here for sisters birthday, food is good, point off for the atmosphere, feels very frantic and closed in, but would happily have another trip there. Whole family enjoyed the experience.
