Nice luncheon after a funeral

Following a morning funeral our family and friends (about 30) gathered at Cafe Rinaldi for a luncheon. Turned out to be a good choice. The main food was tasty (roast beef, chicken, risoto, veggies), as we the appetizer pizza and dessert. Our host (who I believe was the owner or related to the... read more

Relied on this website which is usually pretty believable. NOT THIS TIME!! Made a reservation a day in advance. Unfortunately got there right behind friends of the hostess that did not have a reservation. Obviously she gave our table to her friends and sat us in the bar room, across from the TV!! LOUD,LOUD,... couldn't converse with our daughter who... More

Came here due to a Restaurant.com coupon. Brought my inlaws along and we all enjoyed it very much! The service was impeccable, the food tasty and plentiful! I had the 12oz Lobster and my husband had the 10oz Filet. We split these two, as we love Surf and Turf! Will definitely be back to try some of the other scrumptious... More

Great meal, all 6 of us had something different and everything was excellent! Rinaldi's was recommended by our hotel, portions were so large we all took some home and enjoyed the next day.

It was a great overall experience. Enjoyed dinner with my family, where the wait staff was pleasant, and helpful. Our food arrived in a timely fashion, and was delicious.

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 we... 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.
