Went to Rino's on a Saturday afternoon. Opens at 3pm. Got there 3:30. Waited about an hour to be seated. Worth the wait. Great service. Great selection of Italian or other choices, as well, if you don't want Italian. Enough choices to please any one. Everything we ordered was delicious. Every plate that passed by us to other tables, also... More

This is a very funny place because it has no parking lot and a long wait. We went on a cold Thursday night and had to walk from our parking place on the street. We luckily got in right away because it was 5:30. Very small restaurant and can be loud. Very good food. Some of our orders were Stuffed... More

This place is a small, local family owned restaurant. Had no idea it was featured on DDD prior to visit. Service was great. Food was awesome. Lobster Ravioli was best I have had and the Open Ravioli with lobster, scallops and shrimp was unique and delicious. Close to airport and away from downtown traffic, so parking is much easier. Definitely... More

Last year we went to Rino's after seeing it on Diners, Drivers, & Dives on our way home from Maine. There was so much lobster in the Lobster ravoli that we decided to go back again this year on our way to Maine,which just happen to be our anniversary. It took us 4 hours to get there. What a BIG...

we have been meaning to go to Rino's for a while and finally got there. I have found my goto place when real good Italian food is what I crave! We had the octopus appetizer, lobster ravioli and Rino's special. All of it was excellent. The food brought to other tables looked equally awesome. I plan to return many times

We just got back home from a vacation with our son in Boston. I was so excited to be able to visit and eat at Rino's Place in East Boston. I had seen the segment on Diners and Drive In's a while back and was so looking forward to the Lobster Ravioli. The owner/chef cooked this dish with Guy and... More

First time and all I can say is I need this restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale! Met college friends my boyfriend hadn't seen in over 15 years and this is their favorite restaurant. The portions are ridiculously large! I had linguine and white clams. Could have fed 3 people easily! Home made pasta too! One in our group had the mushroom... More

I just read all the bad reviews after I went there and I can't believe it. Yes, we waited a little bit but the hostess kindly took our phone number to let us know when the table was ready and also directed us to a nearby bar to have a drink. The food was outstanding! Huge portions, and our server,... More

Been to Rino twice, first time, was by chance. Was staying in the near by hotel (near Logan), want to grab dinner, asked the hotel staff -- they have a print out of local places. This is one of the place that the hotel shuttle will take me. What a dinner -- this is, if you like home made Italian,... More

This restaurant is the epitome of a North End Italian restaurant. I guess. First one i have even been to. Very small, quite, intimate atmosphere. Got in at about 545 and fortunatly got right in at a table as this is a very very very busy place. Sorrounded by business men and woman i felt a little underdressed but whatever.... More
