“Tucked Away Gem In the North End with Amazing Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you want amazing italian food at a decent price, Dino's is your spot. The atmosphere is more a of a low-key cafe but the food is absolutely top notch. My favorite dish is the pumpkin tortellini but forewarning it is intensely creamy and might be best split with someone. Dino's also has huge sub sandwiches for under $10 that you can easily split. The location on Prince and Salem is away from the busy crowds and next to a 24 hr bakery (who serves fantastic chocolate cake and black and white cookies).

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We stopped here for lunch having no direction or idea what we really wanted. There are so many choices in the area. We ordered a Dino's chicken and split it, the sandwiches are huge! The counter woman brought it RIT over and offered an extra plate an utensils. They were very friendly, the food was really good and the atmosphere busy but comfortable. Nice place.

“good for take out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Small place,about 15 two seater tables. Been there a long time. We sat inside and had Calamari. They serve good cold beers and do a lot of take-out orders.

“very good”

I wandered into this restaurant last night and was glad I did. I ordered the Dino's special sub sandwich and all ingredients were fresh, served on a very good bun. Will go back.
