The best Italian food I've ever eaten. We make sure to eat at Rinos every time we visit Boston.

There are no words on how to express this place.The food and service was incredible. 9-22 is a special day and I didn't mind playing $100 plus tip on top (for 2 people).The $100 included an appetizer, main course, dessert and 2 drinks. In my opinion, if you like Italian food, this is the place to be.Small little place with character.

I was visiting Boston and only had one night and wanted to eat some authentic Italian food. My family took me to Rino's and it was exquisite. The food was amazing with a real downhome vibe. A must visit.

Amazing. Rino’s is the best pasta I’ve ever had. The bottles of wine were reasonable. The proportions were large so there was plenty to take home and have as a second meal. The rino’s special had so much flavor and the cream sauce was stable. The scallop and lobster special was perfectly cooked with huge tender shrimp and three lobster tail portions.12/10 recommend!

Lives up to the hype. The lobster ravioli is a must, but everything is so good. Get there early to beat the crowds and enjoy a leisurely meal.


My wife and I, first time visiting Rino's. We had a 200.00 gift card for almost 2 years for this place but between life being busy then covid we just didn't get there until August 2021. I'm glad we did though and we will be back. If you don't have a residential parking permit take an Uber or you'll get a 60.00 ticket, but trust me it's worth it.We love Italian and spend much time in north end but this place is the real deal. We tried 3 appetizers and 3 entrees and it was all awesome. Started with bruschetta, shrimp scampi and little necks in garlic n oil. For entrees, lobster ravioli, chicken, broccoli rab with zitti and lobster/shrimp/scallop over homemade linguini with red sauce..it was all fantastic, but the lobster ravioli will keep us going back there for a long time. We waited 45 minutes to be seated but I would do it every night if I could.The wait staff was friendly, on point, knew the menu and timed everything perfectly. Rinos's dropped the mic. Check out the pics! Great job!

Pasty gnocchi the size of sea scallops. Flavorless sauce. Supermarket quality mozzarella cheese on the Caprese salad. Over cooked shrimp scampi. Angry waitresses that look at you with a disgusted annoyed face if you ask for the most simple thing like a wine list. I am never coming back to this place. You should spend your money somewhere else. This place completely sucks. It used to be so much better.


Our food was amazing and the service was as well. We were on a girl's trip and one suggested Rino's Place. I am so glad we tried it. I will be back!

I’ve lived in Boston many years, been to most places in the North End, but Rino’s is my favorite Italian. The menu is fantastic. The layered eggplant appetizer is my top pick. Be advised they don’t take reservations for parties under 6 and the wait can be very long, plan ahead! Worth it. Their lobster ravioli was featured on DDD and it’s very good.

Wonderful atmosphere and food. Homey and casual, a great place to go for a meal. You’ll go home with plenty of leftovers too.

Food is amazing and a portion could have fed the 3 of us.. so basically you won't leave hungry but you will leave with left overs! Their homemade pasta is top notch. Husband got the veal chop (wish I had put utilitie by it so you could tell the size better) it was definitely Fred Flintstone size ?. We were on vacation and someone recommended...will be back when on Boston!

What a gem this place is. My daughter craved an authentic, Italian dinner, and didn't want the hassles of getting to and around the North End. So we discovered this wonderful restaurant earlier this week - tucked away in the heart of a residential East Boston street. I had a superb veal dinner, and my daughter a rigatoni dinner that was so huge we left with enough leftovers for at least two more meals. It was a beautiful evening so we ate outside, but had we chosen inside we would have sat at a table with white linen on it. Elegant and classy. You won't go wrong with Rino.

We had a wonderful dinning experience. The grilled scallops. And sauted spinach with lemon chelo glaze were to die for. Succulent and perfectly prepared. The chicken parm with homemade pasta was ausome. My dinning companion had the pasta alforno. The wait staff was attentive and very friendly. I would highly recommend this this.


We had a nice dinner . The food was good . We left a nice tip . Being considerate, we got up from our table in case other customers wanted to sit inside . There was several empty tables outside , we sat down to wait on our Uber . A young woman came outside and said “ you cannot sit there “ ! - I said , we are paying customers! We JUST left our table inside , we will be gone fast , our ride is coming very soon - She said that does NOT matter You cannot sit down there ! I have never been treated so RUDE in all my life -It was UNBELIEVABLE -I don’t care how good your food is if you treat people BAD I will never be back - and would never recommend this restaurant
