We arrived at the Boston airport and headed straight to Rino's. The lobster ravioli was absolutely wonderful! A lot of ravioli filled w chunks of lobster in a great tomato cream sauce also with chunks of lobster. My husband had the Rino special w shrimp, chicken cutlet and veal cutlet in a cream sauce over pasta. He enjoyed every bite.... More

Save your money and time. Excessive wait, poor communication from staff and very average experience characterize Rinos. Go to the north end and any random restaurant will out cook and out match this average Italian food eatary. Don't waste your time......

My boyfriend and I have been here a total of 3 times and fall in love with this place all over again each time. The most recent trip was for my moms birthday, and this restaurant once again failed to disappoint. With flavorful appetizers such as the seared scallops and crab cakes to downright delicious entrees such as their seafood... More

We had a great visit to rinos! Staff was beyond friendly... the food is delicious, old school Italian with a few unique add-ons. Share appetizers, if you get and you have to try more than one dish... the meals are HUGE. Just go order and take it home! We had everything possible as we were a large party and minus... More

Rino's is one of those gems in East Boston that makes your mouth water thinking about homemade Italian food! Truly a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The restaurant is small, reminding me of the North End in Boston. Reservations can only be made for parties of 6 or 8 or more I believe. Normally quite busy for dinner but... More

Between us all we had the Bruschetta, Cheese Ravioli with Pink Sauce (fantastic with the largest ravioli I've ever seen), and chicken parmigiana and finished with an almond desert if the style of tarimisu. Sooooo gooood! Be ware the huge portion sizes...we ordered wayyyy... More

The line was 25 deep at 2:50pm today 10 minutes prior to opening. Clearly nobody was fazed by the recent less than excellent reviews and neither were we as Zagat reviewers and other critics consistently rave about this place. We were excited to try it out. The portions are really big, the quality of the food is excellent and the... More

Rinos is a bit over hyped. the food is great but in my opinion over priced. $20+ for gnocchi, plus its almost impossible to eat there. The one time I did they sat our group at different tables.

Rino's Place is an East Boston neighborhood restaurant. Far off the tourist path and a bit of a trip to get there. Given that it is a neighborhood restaurant, parking can be a bit difficult for dinner, as you are competing with residents for a limited number of spots. The wait staff was excellent and probably they know all the... More
