Rinaldi's is a family run restaurant that serves Italian food a la Scranton. They give you more food than you can possibly eat no matter how good it tastes. We had the "pizza" which is served in what they term as a "tray". Basically, this was more like I would call a calzone than a pizza. We ordered a white... More

Food was all delicious, huge traditional antipasto, risotto cakes in the vodka sauce are a delight. Gigantic portions. Bottled beer needs to be colder. Good service.

I'm typically a huge fan of Cafe Rinaldi, but we had a horrible experience last night & if I could, I'd give it 1/2 a star. We had reservations, but still had to wait 20 min for our table -- if that's where it ended I would have been fine with that. An hour after we ordered we were just... More

Very good food and large portions. Our dinners were great. My Chicken Calabrese could have been a little spicier but overall is was great. My wife's veal was very tender. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful.

We had some excellent dishes here, most notably a grilled shrimp appetizer, a manicotti entree, and veal piccata. The manicotti was as smooth as silk. Portions are generous - we saw an antipasto on another table that looked large enough for several diners to share. The pasta fagioli soup, however, was rather bland for my taste. Atmosphere was reminiscent of... More

The atmosphere, service, and food were all very good. It is one of the few restaurants open on a Monday night.

Best Italian Cuisine in the area! The hostess and our server Tracy were so nice, and the male servers were just as gracious. Even my service dog Baby was treated with the utmost of welcoming. The portions are incredibly huge and the food is seasoned perfectly.

I guess we ordered the wrong food tonight. It was Friday Pizza night and we heard Rinaldi's Cafe was a great place to eat. Seeing the wonderful menu, we were tempted to order a big dinner, but opted out for our usual Friday night pizza. This was our first time to visit this cafe and we were very impressed with... More
