    The food here was excellent. Def one of the best chicken Parms I've ever had. Waiter and staff were very friendly and professional. My gf is a picky eater so if she loved it, than you know the food was great.

Ralph prepared delicious veal and eggplant entrees for us, and our wait staff, especially Tim, could not have been more attentive. You are sure to get a warm welcome and fabulous food at Dino's.

    Great service and a nice place, but food is good, not great. Veal was slightly overcooked as was the pasta. Dessert was a bit bland. Sauces were tasty. Not a bad choice if someone suggests it. You could surely have a worse mealmpicking blindly.

    We had 14 people for dinner for an 85th Birthday. The group were aged from 20's to 85. Baked Clams and Fried Zucchini got rave reviews. The tossed salad was perfect. I had soft shell crabs that were good over a bed of Spinach. I tasted the homemade raviolis stuffed with spinach and cheese and they were excellent. The dessert of zabaglione and strawberries was the sweet finish.

    My husband and I shared a delicious meal here on a Friday evening. Immediately upon sitting down, we were served a warm bread basket with italian bread and garlic knots. We enjoyed our fried zucchini appetizer and both of us ordered specials on the dinner menu. The Chilean Sea Bass was incredible - literally melted in your mouth. The stuffed shrimp was also very good, but it said it was served with vegetables and instead came out with rice. The dessert cart had every delicious dessert that you can ever dream of. We shared the flourless godiva chocolate cake and it was one of the best I have ever tasted of that kind. The waiter was attentive, but not hovering. We will definitely return.

    My husband and I made a 7:00pm reservation and when we got there it was loud and packed. We waited a while until we were able to get someone's attention about being seated. Finally after several minutes an older man ( maybe the owner) came over with the book and pretty much was yelling at us and had a nasty attitude. He pretty much said our reservation meant nothing because we would still had to wait at least another hour to be seated. What's the point of taking reservations? And after the ways husband and I were spoken to we weren't staying anyway.
