My wife and I had dinner at Café Rinaldi a few times, so we decided to try it again on a Saturday night around 6:30 PM. The restaurant was about two thirds full & we sat in a booth at the rear of the restaurant. I’m glad we did because every time someone opened the door to come in, the... More

My favorite place in Old Forge. We have visited a number of times and usually eat at the bar. Never feel rushed. Bartenders are attentive and friendly. Usually get pizza (red and fresh tomato basil) and the white risotto with mushrooms. I get the appetizer portion of the risotto and it is more than enough for my husband and I... More

Great Italian food and very reasonable pricing. You must try the white risotto. I personally like to add spinach to it. Other dishes to try: gnocchi, chicken francaise, and shrimp scampi over pasta. Any of their specials are delicious. Call for reservations if it's the weekend. A nice Lenten dish is the shrimp and pepper pizza. The crust is great.

We were just there for 2 private parties. One an anniversary, one a bridal shower. We had buffet for the shower. Wonderful. Pizza appetizers, white and red. Buffet was varied pasta, salad, chicken, veggies. All hot and plentiful. Two waitresses were with us keeping food fresh and manning the bar. It was great. I should know--I have had a shower... More

We felt the dishes were expensive and not to our liking. The atmosphere was fine and so was the service. Probably would not go back.

If you enjoy Italian food, then this is a restaurant that you must try. I had the homemade meat and cheese ravioli. I'm lucky I asked for extra red sauce because the sauce was that good! I even found myself swabbing up the extra sauce with the fresh Italian bread. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. We will definitely... More

We have been to Rinaldi's several times for their pizza which we both loved. This time we went to try dinner. For appetizers, I ordered white risotto and my husband had soup which was similar to an Italian wedding soup but a little different. Both were excellent. For dinner I had the linguini carbonara which is the best I've ever... More

Being in the area with entire family for funeral last week I asked my hotel for local best restaurant list and got over 50 names of which I reviewed over a dozen. Unfortunately this restaurants reviews on trip advisor and yelp seemed like the only one of the dozen that had good reviews. (makes me wonder). I brought 7 others... More
