Great atmosphere...

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... read more

Terrific people who treat you well. We were made to feel like good friends with all of the staff. Food was delicious. I especially loved the creamy balsamic dressing on my salad. Risotto was awesome and I had enough left to take home for my daughter and granddaughter to enjoy. I will certainly return. Pasta dishes looked fabulous so that's... More

fantastic food, fantastic atmosphere, exceptional service. We went all out- appetizers, salad, mains, desert- and every course was exceptional. The flags of Italy bruschetta was so great- especially the garlicky white bean one. My adventurous husband got the soffits and tripe- and I was actually jealous! It was so delicious.

Cafe Rinaldi changed up their menu. Noticed the addition of Arancini (Sicilian Rice Balls) as an appetizer, one of my favorites, will definitely try them next time. We specifically went there for an Antipasto and dinner. They offer several Antipasto's, we chose the Pepper Antipasto, the change was no more lettuce or banana peppers, it was filled with big chunks... More

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

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.
