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

Last night my roommate and I did the great chicken parm debate of 2021. We got chicken parm from Mario's and rinos. Rinos came out on top in the long run because you really cannot beat the homemade pasta here. It's so delicious. I actually just had the leftovers for breakfast. So delicious and the portions are HUGE.

The best Bolognese I've ever had in my life. Amazing food, service made you feel like family... but good family, not in-laws. Lol

Rino's Place is a fantastic place to eat. The portions are massive but the flavor is even bigger! The lobster ravioli is an incredible dish that combines the best in fresh lobster with handmade pasta and sauce. For the rest of the menu we can just break it like this: The fresh plum tomato sauce is a delightful base for the rest of the ingredients the acidity is a perfect complement to cut through the cheeses but also lightens and brightens the seafood dishes. The handmade pasta is so fresh and tastes so good it makes an incredible hearty component that is filling but never heavy. It's a delicious treat. The seafood is so fresh and cooked so perfectly that even without the pasta or sauce it would be a delight but when combined with the sauce and pasta it becomes a magical study in layered flavors and textures. As a whole the dishes are so well balanced and thoughtful that they make the meal a true pleasure! The cozy atmosphere and friendly service make this restaurant feel more like a meal at your favorite Italian aunts house than a meal out on the town.
