“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

There is nothing I can say about this restaurant other than fantastic! The food is excellent and the wait staff are friendly and helpful. We ate here 3 times during our Rome stay. They have a great selection of wine and encourage you to take the bottles that you did not finish with you. I have never had that not only suggested but encouraged before. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this restaurant.

“Hospitality!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We came to Rinaldi al Quirinale for lunch based on the recommendation of our hotel. We had the spaghetti carbonara and the seafood ravioli. Both were wonderful and very fresh. But the best was the level of hospitality presented by the staff. We liked it so much we returned later for dinner. We then shared a whole fresh fish. Fresh fish in Rome is not inexpensive, but we were able to select the fish we wished to eat and we were told before hand the weight of our fish. So we were aware of the cost. It was delicious, fresh, and a delightful experience. We will be back. Hospitality is a key ingredient for any good restaurant, and Rinaldi does it well!

“Not worth your money; avoid raw fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Overpriced for food quality. Really nothing spectacular for the price charged. Moreover both me and my wife got sick after rawfish we had...(everything else was cooked and others ate exacly same dishes entire day but rawfish..). Check was hefty even with moderately priced drinks... staff was nice. I bet you can find better deal for the price.

“Wonderful neighborhood seafood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Our hotel made reservations for us here. We sat outside, in one of those covered dining areas (literally) on the street. In fact, everything slopes with the street...inside dining is available but it was too nice an evening for that...

We asked for recommendations and were offered two different seafood pasta starters. Both delicious, as was the white fish in orange sauce, the leadt expensive fish entree. We also asked for a white wine recommendation which was also quite nice: a recently rediscovered grape from antiquity which makes a flavorful but not so fruity wine.

Prices can be atmospheric for both food and wine, but it is easy to avoid that trap. I don't understand why anyone would complain or be surprised as one reviewer was...

My wife had a pepper steak and gnocchi as she isn't a fan of seafood. Good but not great, she
said. Our waiter agreed it was a shame she doesn't like seafood, as it is their specialty.

So for a nice seafood dinner in a neigh good restaurant, go for it. Although the non-seafood menu is extensive, I'd suggest going elsewhere if that's your preference.
