We ate dinner here with friends and the quality of service was so much better than what we had experienced at another restaurant at lunch that day. The staff seat you at the table with the menus, wine list and water in the one move. The menu options include daily specials as well as the regular menu . The food reflects seasonal variations and is really delicious. The wine list reflects the rich varietals from the region and the recommendations go well with the meal selections.
This was our third visit and we have been very impressed on every visit.

Doesn't look much from the outside but once inside perceptions are positive. Spacious, warehouse feel with tables well laid out and spaced. Service throughout the night was friendly and efficient. A very good menu selection and wonderful combinations. The type of place that needs multiple visits as there is so much temptation. Being a group of 4 allowed us to experience a wide selection across entrée, main and dessert and we were very happy and complimentary. Good wine list. Overall a great experience and a credit to the region.

We hadn't visited the Milawa region for many years so when the opportunity came up we took it. Booked a nice B&B for Saturday night and then decided to visit Rinaldo's on the recommendation of Tripadvisor for dinner. They are one restaurant that really has excellence in hospitality sorted. The building itself is quite plain and on the outskirts of Wangaratta. A rural supplies structure in a former life I was told. It certainly had the now popular "industrial look". The tables were unusually large which meant that there was plenty of room for everything. Although there were some largish groups near by the acoustics were excellent and we could carry on a normal conversation. There was good space between the tables. The restaurant was adequately staffed for the level of bookings meaning that the evening happened in a timely and relaxed manner. The wait staff were very, but not over, attentive and were interesting and interested people. The food was first class and represented great value. Plenty of flavor and balance and lots of thought put into the combinations. There was an extensive by the bottle wine list. The only small negative was I thought that the by the glass wine list was limited could have featured some of the excellent local vineyards. Thank you for a lovely evening.

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.
