The North End is great and all but if you want the best Italian in the city come here! This is the best Italian I've ever had. We had a potluck with the 4 people I was with and shared every entree with each other. We had the chicken parm, lobster ravioli, gnocchi, bolognese, and the pasta al forno---they all... More

Heard about this on Food Network. Long wait, but well worth it! Friendly staff, but small space. Ordered the lobster ravioli which was fantastic. Portions are huge, so plan to bring home a doggy bag! I would highly recommend this place.

The food was very good for the most part. The portions are excellent. Our kids loved the ravioli. The squash ravioli app was good. We didn't try the lobster ravioli everyone else has raved about as we were taking a seafood break - which gave us the opportunity to try their meatballs, which were excellent. There's no kid's menu, so... More

Small, homestyle family restaurant. Good food - not too much going for the decor or the bathroom - clean but far from the norm.

While some of the negative reviews complained about the wait, if you go expecting the wait it is no big deal. We waited about 2 hours on a Thursday night. Went across the street, had a few drinks and an app and enjoyed the wait. The hostess came over and checked on us and updated our wait. Once we got... More

In a residential little Italy type neighborhood is this tucked away gem. Waited two 1/2 hours on a Wed night but waited at their bar across the street. It was worth every second! Husband had Rino's special.. Veal,shrimp,chicken in a rich mushroom wine sauce. Mine was actually an appetizer.. Smoked mozzarella stuffed eggplant with their signature red sauce. I will... More

Finally able to have dinner at Rino's after a couple of previous tries where we could not get in. Since this place is always crowded, getting in is never easy and 2 to 3 hour waits are the norm. This time, due to an event in Boston that friends of ours were also attending, we were able to make a... More

If I had to choose my last meal, it would be the lobster ravioli from Rino's Place. Go out on a high note. It's incredible.

My partner and I heard about Rino's place from Diners, Drive-ins, and Drives. The food at Rino's definitely did not disappoint! The portions of food are ridiculous and the lobster ravioli I ordered was out of this world. There was tons of lobster in the ravioli, and chunks of lobster meat in the sauce. Definitely a must try if you're... More

The food was absolutely delicious! Olive Garden doesn't hold a light to this place. Was a long wait, but was able to have cocktails across the street w/partnering dining spot. Service was good! Small & intimate, no parking, take a cab or public transportation (Boston's a walking city). Overall, pretty darn good. Would have gone back for lunch later...
