Amazing! We went there for my birthday at the beginning of August, the food was so good, I couldn't fault any of it, the service was great too, my son has Aspergers and can be a bit loud, the waitress was so nice to him and told us not to worry about him being loud, little things like this make...

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

Rinaldi's is one of my favourite places to eat. The menu is good, food is always excellent and of high quality and the price isn't bad either. The only let down is the waiting/bar area, especially on a busy Friday/Saturday night. If the venue could extend or re-arrange this area it would do a whole deal of good, a lot... More

We visited as a group of 11 for a birthday celebration. We were seated quickly and well looked after, all of the staff were lovely and the service was great. The food was beautiful and very well presented. Would definitely recommend and look forward to going again x

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...
