“Why is this a secret?”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I have lived within 5 miles of this restaurant my whole life and never knew it existed! Why are the owners keeping this a secret? I went here for the first time and had excellent homemade eggplant with pasta. It tasted so good and fresh, which was especially good 'cause I had a really bad experience with another restaurant in the area not long ago. The restaurant is simple and without much decor, but the food, value, and service are good!

“Great southern Italian food.”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Dino's is a mom and pop restaurant that has been around for a long time. They serve good traditional southern Italian food that is both comforting and rustic. The portions are quite generous and the prices more than reasonable.

I have had the Chicken Marsala, the Chicken Parmigiana and the Veal Parmigiana on different occasions and all were outstanding. They make their own bread daily and their sauces based on old recipes. The entrees come with fresh bread, soup or salad and a side of pasta.

The waitstaff is always pleasant and efficient.

This is a small restaurant in a small strip mall but it is a great spot to go when you do not want to get dressed up and just need a good evening meal. I want to go for breakfast sometime and try the fried polenta with mushrooms, onions and peppers. Yummm.

“Outstanding Italian Food - HOMEMADE!”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

My family and I go to Dino's regularly for both breakfast and dinner. There is no beating the eggplant and veal parm meals. The sauces are delicious and taste as though they have been simmering all day long. The omelets for breakfast are delicious, as well as the Italian toast. Dino's is a great place to eat and enjoy the company of good friends and family.
