We were staying on Cape Cod for vacation but had to make a trip to the airport in Boston and decided we should try to get to Rino's for lunch so we could add to our D-D-D list. We got there at noon on a weekday and waited about a half hour. It's a small place holding about 40 seats... read more

That you may wait 2 hours for dinner and when you eventually get your food it will be amazing. It's mainly because this place is so small and depending on the configuration of the parties, can only hold 15 groups. They shunt you of to their bar across the street to chill after you put your name in (need a... More

We decided to try this place on a whim after having seen it featured on Guy Fieri's DDD. We were driving from out of town and arrived at 9:30 pm. we were told there was a bit of a wait which we did not mind. As we are waiting outside, we see Guy Fieri dining there with a group! When... More

Big portions. Fare prices. However, not Italian food but Italian-American food

Today's food adventure was inspired by Flavortown USA. Otherwise I am not inclined to drive through or stop in a out-of-the-way inner-city neighborhood where parking is a challenge to eat at a place where crowds of people are hanging around on the street corners surrounding this small unassuming restaurant. It was a delightful experience. After eating lunch I decided to... More

You have to check out Rino's at least once in your lifetime! It far exceeded my expectations in terms of quality, quantity and value. I ordered the lobster ravioli, which was totally incredible. The raviolis were stuffed to the gills with fresh, succulent lobster meat, and the portion was huge! My partner had the seafood canneloni, stuffed with fresh lobster,... More

We were in town for a convention and made it a point to get to this restaurant. Called to make a reservation the night we got in town... and there was a three hour wait! The hostess gave us a super tip on when to come and be seated right away, so we stopped by the very next day when... More

Ok, I know Rino's is now a big trendy hot spot since it's been featured on the Food Network, but let me tell you, the lines were just as long before! The food is amazing, better Italian than I've had anywhere, honestly. Portions are huge and my favorite meal is the cheese ravioli. You get 3 raviolis the size of... More

Tried lunch there last Friday - 12:15P - 4 of the 12 tables in the place are empty, yet we're told there's 3 parties ahead of us. We're directed to the bar across the street THEY OWN and where the tourists and non-locals are kept at bay. Meanwhile, the locals slide in and are seated. We watched from our car... More

Plan to spend the night here. Go right at 5, or wait til 8, if you come anytime in between put your name on the list and wait it out. BUT -it was well worth the 1 hr 15 minute wait. The food was incredible. I had the lobster ravioli and it ranks near the top of the best meals... More
