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

We booked Cafe Rinaldi in Old Forge for a private party - 25 people. We were set up in a banquet room behind the main restaurant, which was closed as usual because it was Sunday. Cafe Rinaldi was recommended by locals who swore this was the top choice of all the many Italian restaurants in Old Forge, the so-called "Pizza... More

My husband and I stopped for dinner on a Friday night. I have had the risotto (white) here before but this time I had the special risotto cake with chicken and sun dried tomatoes. It was fabulous. My husband, who isn't a fan of risotto, also thought it was amazing. He had the other special, veal saltimbocco, which he enjoyed.... More

I saw they were noted for risotto, so stopped by on a recent business trip. White risotto was quite good, but enough to feed about three people. Suggest you order the appetizer size and have room for some of the side dishes.
