We began our five-day stay in Panama City with dinner at Rinos, primarily because it was within easy walking distance and was recommended by our hotel staff.
On a busy Saturday night, we started with hot garlic bread that was as good as any we've ever had. The fettuccini with eggplant sauce and a Greek salad for two were a great combination. Not only was the service good, but we also observed that the noise level was low, especially for a practically full house, in contrast to what we're accustomed to in Brazil. In addition, Rinos' trio provided some melodic entertainment. The ambiance was agreeable, too, though not outstanding.
Rinos merits a higher rating..no complaints here.

I was on a business trip and had dinner at Rino's. It is an italian restaurant in Panama City. Food and service was good but not great. Panama is a really hot and humid city, so they should offer your red wine a little bit chilled. Drinking red wine at room temperature here is not right.

We were looking for somewhere to eat on a Sataurday night near our hotel and came across Rino's. We sat outside as there was a private party going ojn inside. We ordered Ceviche (good) and Bruschetta (average) followed by Sea Bass (excellent) and Filet Planche (nice steak) with Plantains. Washed down with a bottle of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon.

Service was OK although they were very busy inside. Nice meal and not too expensive so overall very good.

Last night we ate with friends in that run down place. Everything looks old, smell old. The food is ok, the service is a disaster.
Last night there was a boxing figth in the tv and waiters and even cooks were watching tv instead of pay attetion to the clients. First and last time I go there

Though there are other nice Italian restaurants in Panama city, Rinos is one of my favorites. It is located on Avenida Federico Boyd and has plenty of parking spaces with valet parking.

You can dine outside (limited space) or inside in the air conditioned two-story restaurant. The ambiance is very nice and clean, the service is good and the food is great. The prices are right too.

I have been at Rino's several times in various ocassions such as with girlfriend or family celebrations and it has always been top of the class.
