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...

After seeing the episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives we thought it would be worth a stop next time we were in Boston. We arrived at 1:30 on a Wednesday so we were able to get a table right away. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli, our son got Rino's special and I got the scallops, shrimp and lobster pasta.... More

We ate at this location due to the closeness of the restaurant to our hotel. We found the menu in our hotel room and it was recommended by the front desk and several local people. We called in an order for take-out since they were busy and parking is hard to come by in the neighborhood. The food was decent... More

I know this place gets fantastic reviews and I'm not sure I see it. The two hour wait to get a table probably heightened my expectations, and reading all the reviews made me think it was going to be an exceptional meal. I got the lobster ravioli and it was good. Nothing that would stay in my mind as being... More

A varied menu with generous portions is second only to the wonderful flavors offered at this somewhat remote location (two subways and a bus). While not accepting reservations, Rino's is right across the street from a neighborhood pub that serves to heighten the anticipation. We enjoyed calamari and lobster ravioli that were delicious and priced very economically.

It's a little off the beaten path, but Rino's is the best Italian in Boston and is less expensive than lots of places you'll find in the North End. It's not the most convenient location for visitors, but the food is fantastic. And they serve the best lobster ravioli that I've ever had. I've been three times, and will continue... More

We went waited, sat across the street for an hour and a half at their owned annex, they lied to us and told us a few more minutes over and over again. I complained to the owner Anna. She invited us back and personally made a reservation for us at 630 PM. Again we had to wait across the street... More
