Ok, I'm a foody or foodie not sure how to spell it. I like to try different places and food. If it says home cooking I pass because I get good home cooking at home. That's simple!
Saw Rino's on DDD and wanted to try it. The GPS got me there without problem and parking was easy within the block, got there around 11:30 on Good Friday. Saw that a wait line was forming so stuck my head in the door gave my name and got in line, I was #7. Beautiful day so stood outside and chatted with others who were waiting. There was a party of 10 celebrating something and when they left it cleared a bunch of tables. My wait was less than an hour.
I ordered the DDD featured lobster ravioli and it was great! It came with a salad and bread and both were very good. I should have waited and ate the bread with the ravioli as there was so much sauce I had to get extra bread to clean my plate. Actually, I couldn't clean my plate there was just too much!
I'm not used to house made pasta or ravioli so it was a little thicker pasta than I expected but oh so lovely. One reviewer said theirs had very little lobster, I just can't believe that. I thought I was eating a whole lobster with big chunks. On top they have a great sauce with even more lobster.
The place is tiny but works well. I was impressed at how many regulars were there being greeted with a kiss or warm handshake. It's the kind of place I would love to have in my neighborhood.
Having said that, I wouldn't want to live in Rino's neighborhood. The streets and sidewalks were literally covered with garbage. I've lived in third world countries and seen better. Shame on the people of this neighborhood for allowing this to happen!
If you want to see the kitchen just use the restroom, you walk right through the kitchen.
