Stopped by Dino's for a quick meatball sub and it was awesome. They were quick putting it together, good meatballs, bread and cheese. I would highly recommend them for a quick lunch!

Dining at Dino's was a lovely experience. It is a local place with local folks. An elderly woman dining at the table next to us made me feel awesome when she said I looked pretty and classy. The food was hot and came out quickly. The adult beverages were priced nicely. Will definitely return if ever in Boston again.

Lots of bread with minimal garnishing, the chicken was dry and portobello overcooked And indeed these subs are huge!

Stopped here for lunch and it was wonderful. Small spot with very large sandwiches. One sandwich is definitely enough for two people. Would absolutely go back again.

I have eaten lots of spaghetti marinara but nothing comes close to Dino's. A must do (don't let the very basic decor put you off)

Delicious food and smiling service...we loved this spot so much that we ate here 2 nights in a row. Unlike so many places on Hanover Street, the servers were friendly and happy to have us. Patrons order and pay at the counter. The menu is large but ask for their favorites and the the staff is happy to share recommendations.... More

Lobster ravioli was excellent, worth getting on the side streets for. Very small place, most people coming and going were for take out but there were a few tables to sit.

Stopped by on a snowy Sunday, had their Italian sub, great flavor and loaded with fresh cut meats. Hots were just enough to keep things lively. Just what you would expect from a North End establishment, will go back next for their Steak & Cheese.
