Wow, wow, wow! I was brought to Rinaldo's for a birthday dinner and was really impressed with absolutely everything - The food, the atmosphere and the service.
We shared an entree to begin, having the oven baked scallops with cauliflower puree and prosciutto. Best meal of the night! It was absolutely delicious!
For main, I had the slow cooked Lamb Rump and was pleasantly surprised at the size of the portion. Not too big, but not too small. The parsnip puree and chips really added the special touch to this meal.
And the grand finale - For dessert, I had the baked cheesecake with a honey/nut topping, vanilla ice cream and poached quince. Wow. The ice cream had the genuine, home made, vanilla bean flavour and together with the poached quince, it was perfect! It made the perfect end to a wonderful meal.
I had a really great night and will definitely be returning to Rinaldo's to try some more of their creations!

Quietly understated, this informal, comfortable, friendly establishment would rival many eateries in Melbourne. The menu is seasonal, our meals were superb, couldn't be faulted. Good service, reasonable prices. We will be back.

Another b'day at Rinaldos & again we were amazed!! Food, service & attention to detail was second to none. My father is diabetic and was made his own fruit based desert & just loved it. All our starters, mains & deserts were mouth wateringly sumptuous & we left Rinaldos craving the next time we go- any excuse will do! Can't thank all the staff enough for another sensational evening :)

yum yum yum!!!! The pork entree off the specials and the gnocchi with beef ragu. Absolute taste sensations! Excellent service, great ambiance. Only let down was the dessert. Not up to scratch with store bought ice cream although homemade was advertised on the menu. And not entirely sure the choc cheesecake was house made either. however, I would definitely go back because the rest of the meal was 5star (or a chefs hat)!

Thank you so much for your excellent review. We are pleased you enjoyed your experience at Rinaldo's and even more pleased that you are looking forward to returning!
We are looking into the reason why that particular batch of icecream was not up to our usual high standard and have spoken with our staff regarding this.
All of our desserts are house made using highest quality ingredients.
We look forward to welcoming you to Rinaldo's again the future!
With best wishes

To be honest i am generally skeptical of rural hotels and restaurants, and yes i have lived in regional Australia and have seen a lot of regional Australia with work.

Thank goodness TA has this as number 1 or we would have not have visited it. I do like to do my own home work first and walked around the town to see what other eating options existed. Yes there are a few, however how can you not eat at Rinaldo's when the whole town is eating there!

The food is amazing. I chose the Gnocchi and it was amazing!! I rarely order this as few restaurants make it themselves. The desserts were incredible, a real enjoyable dining experience, i would have eaten here the next night we spent in town too however had other commitments.

Hopefully the other local restaurants can take a leaf out of what these guys produce and do.

I'll be back.
