This place has the best risotto of any I have ever had . They di not rush you - we often sit for hours and visit with old friends. The rest of the menu is always satisfactory. Prices are reasonable - portions more than enough - often take home for the next day. Only negative was the last time... read more

The local people stay in the community because the restaurants are the best. They take pride in their food and the atmosphere is quaint and encourages couples as well as families!!

The Cafe Rinaldi has a large varied menu but they are known far and wide for their risotto. It is a fun and relaxing place to go for dinner.

Good risotto and Italian food. Seemed that both food and service were better years ago, but it's still a good stop in Old Forge. We especially like the risotto, white and red.

Good, traditional, northeastern, Italian ( Tony Soprano would love this place) menu with lots of selection. We were there with a large group, so we got to try a little of everything. And it was all delicious. Staff is very friendly and works hard for you. If you like Old Forge style pizza, I would recommend the white pizza here.

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
