We have eaten at rinaldos on many occasions and the food is always good and good value for money. The menu consists of some traditional italian favourites and some dishes that can best be described as italian influenced. We have always had good service but on this occasion it was poor. The staff appeared to be mainly inexperienced and learning on the job - they couldn't find our confirmed internet booking, our waitress seemed not to be able to tell us anything about anything on the menu, she confused a rose with a reisling, we were delivered someone else's meals and the bill was inaccurate at the end. A bit more staff training is in order.

Thank you for reviewing Rinaldos, we are pleased that you enjoyed your meals. You will know from dining with us on previous occasions that we strive to achieve a consistently high standard of food and service. It is unfortunate that the night you reviewed us, three of our key wait staff called to say they could not work. We replaced them as best we could so as not to cancel bookings on such a busy night right before Christmas. Please know that this does not happen often. We apologise for the mistakes that were made on your table, and hope that you will come again and enjoy our usual excellent service.
Happy New Year!

It was a very busy Saturday evening due to the La Dolce Vita Festival in the nearby King Valley and Rinaldo's was fully booked.
I had reserved a table for myself and friends from Melbourne. On arrival, at 7.15pm. we were taken directly to our table and given menus and a wine list.
The standard menu is extensive with a good selection of starters, mains and deserts. The was also a specials menu. The wine list is one of the most extensive I have ever seen at a restuarant, with an excellent selection of local and other wines.
The services was very good not too slow, not too fast and waiting time was reasonable, and my friends prefer at a good restaurant. We were not in a rush but there to enjoy the good food, wine and company.
The Kitchen, especially the Chef, Adam Pizzini, was very busy but this did not effect the service or food quality.
My rabbit entree, Pork Belly main and ice cream selections desert were excellent.
A great liqueur coffee finished the night.
My friends also enjoyed the food and the evening.
Well done Adam and all at Rinaldo's

First class food and service. Wish Rinaldo's had been there when we lived in Wangaratta. It is now our place to eat when we are in Wangaratta.
