The food is amazing and it is totally worth it but getting a seat is a pain in the butt and you probably would have to be there several hours early. I would recommend getting a group together because they take reservations for 6 or more. Definitely go to the bathroom while there too is right through the kitchen.

Having seen this place on DDD I attempted to eat here a month ago but when I arrived at 7pm I was told there would be a 2 hour wait and that was on a Wednesday night. I chose not to wait then hoping that I would be back in the area again and have another try. I managed to... More

If you can't decide what you would like to eat,since there are so many great items to eat. Try the Rino's Special, here you will get the taste of three great food times that are served over a bed of home made pasta. Chicken, Veal and Shrimp in a great Sause will make you want to come back for more.... More

This is a small place. A group of 12 of us showed up, with a reservation, and wedged ourselves in. One of our group had seen the place on Triple D and declared we had to go for the lobster ravioli. We took trains to get there (a short walk of perhaps 6 blocks from the blue line) and parking... More

In Boston recently for training. Thought we would check out Rino's - since they were on DD&D. Parking was a little tough - all street parking. We got lucky and found a spot about a block down. I had looked online and it said to call to get on the wait list - since it was a Tuesday I didn't... More

I have been to Rinos a few times but this time I was able to share it with my family. We were 7 people so we were able to get a reservation. We had an excellent server and the food was out of this word. We shared; the soup of the day. There was such a large portion that we... More

Hands down, the best Italian restaurant in Boston. I use to live right around the corner from them, consistently great food and charming service. Be prepared to wait a while for your table, but it's completely worth it - and they have a wine bar that serves appetizers right across street, so waiting is easy.

Nothing like the taste of fresh pasta with only the best ingredients. This place makes some of the best dishes along with the best Lobster ravioli I have ever tasted loaded with chunks of lobster inside and on top. Portion sizes are huge and it's nice that you can order 1/2 size appetizers so you can try different ones. The... More

I can only add to the many super reviews of this place! BUT...I want to shout out to Judy, the hostess 'extraordinaire'. The food was fantastic, the experience was better! She is as memorable as the food! Lobster ravioli as good as it gets. We had to wait across the street, at their bar, good appetizer, nice place to relax.... More
