Had to stand on crutches for over an hour? When asked for a chair was told we'd only be 5 minutes- what a lie. Had to sit out in the cold with the smokers-yuk! Toilets up a spiral staircase- has this place even heard of disability awareness. Food was dull- olives from a jar, in edible frozen mussels. To top... More

Very pleasant surroundings, very clean. Staff pleasant, friendly , helpful and efficient. Food very tasty. Four of us ordered 3 different dishes, all served at the same time. The mussels were especially tasty. One slight niggle. The wine glasses are more stylish than functional, very long stems difficult for aged hands to cope with; but the waitress was very helpful...

We went here on Sunday lunchtime at 1pm (there were 6 of us). When we arrived the restaurant had been open only half hour so wasn't overly busy. The menu had lots to offer and it took us all a long time to decide what we wanted, there was also a special board with lots to offer. When we the... More

The location being blunt - is grim. A stones throw from pizza delivery hell, a supermarket and some electrical neon signed Chinese place - it's not ideal to be true. And that detracts from the place being fair. A busy, pleasant gig - nice staff who seemed genuine, a decent menu ( I did struggle to find any fish at... More

I have had more hot dinners in Rinaldi's than I have had hot dinners.It is consistently good and Glynn,Nigel,Sarah and their colleagues are to be congratulated.Looking at some of the negative reviews here on tripadvisor I am rapidly drawn to the conclusion that there is a common denominator.Negative reviews are without fail written by customers who are surprised to find...

Not able to book a table so had to stand around for over an hour in a cramped area.I started with marinated olives(not marinated just out of a jar of oil).The fillet steak to follow was cooked to my liking,Rare,but if you wanted more than chips every thing was extra and that could easily add £10to your meal.As soon as...

If you don't mind taking a chance at getting a table, as you cant book, then definitely worth a visit. Lovely food and really nice wine selection.

Saturday night we ate at Rinaldi restaurant and was happy with the food & drink. Very busy evening which probably why service was a little slow but was fine as we were not rushing. Excellent atmosphere with pleasant staff. Good menu & not overly expensive. Would recommend to all.

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
