This restaurant has so many great dishes, and we've been there so many times, it's hard to say what is the best but I'll pick three items. The best appetizer is the Grilled Shrimp. It's served over toast points in a scampi sauce, perfect. Without a doubt their mushroom risotto is the best I have ever had, it alone is... More

As you face the building, parking is on the left. There is a 2nd lot to the left that as of now you could also park in (it is not owned by the restaurant). Upon entering, go left and check min with the hostess I noticed that most people held on to their coats. The drinks are reasonably priced and... More

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
