A hidden JemThis is really a very good restaurant that doesn't appear to get much traffic. We have gone here a number of times and have never been disappointed. This time around we has the bruschetta, ravioli & the flank steak all which were really very well prepared. What I really like is the consistency & the fact that they don't seem to take any short cuts.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to Rinata a coupleWe've been to Rinata a couple times now. The service is always great as is the food. It's a smaller place so you better not mind being close to other restaurant patrons. Overall it's definitely worth trying out. Go on a Monday or Tuesday night fr half price bottles of wine.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMStill amazingWe have been going to Rinata for three years. Their pasta is handmade. The caesar salad is still our favorite; it's packed with flavor and enough garlic to make your taste buds dance. All of their dishes are filling even though they look small. The olive tapenade ith the bread is to die for. Their menu changes regularly and we have enjoyed every dish that we have had. Some stand out dishes are the gnocchi paired with a protein, fettuccine with shrimp in a white wine sauce with chili flake, and their fettuccine puttanesca. My husband adores their meat dishes that include a hangar steak, short ribs with risotto, and wild boar with gnocchi. You can even call ahead and request them to make gluten free pasta. This is truly a gem. Enjoy!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat italian FoodOur waiter recommended the spagehetti and meatballs which I rarely order when dining out but this was a fantastic dish. The meatballs were some of the best I have ever had! And the bread served before the meal was delicious! The bar has also made great use of Proseco and Lemoncello in some very satsfying cocktails!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for date nightWonderful food, great amount of space given to talk. Took my parents and my fiance here for my parents' 34th anniversary. Everybody loved it. Would not recommend for children, but Sunday date night is perfect--good price and good amount and variety of food.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightFood was incredible. It's definitely a cozy little place, lots of candle light. I could see it normally being really quiet but there was a large group in the same room as me and my date so that definitely contributed to the noise. Reasonable price for the quality of food also. I would definitely recommend to anyone for a nice first date.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my favoriteThis is one of my favorite places to go for a nice dinner. The food and service is always great. I'm Italian and I think their pasta dishes are the best in town.
The noise atmosphere is usually good except this time we were seated next to a table of 20 women having a party which made it difficult to have a quiet conversation at our table. Since the restaurant was not crowded it would have bee nice to have been seated further away. We probably should have asked.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, serviceFood was excellent, service was very attentive. We enjoyed our visit and will be back.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't tell Al Vento loversWe love the food at Al Vento but it can be very loud. Rinata is its sister restaurant with the same great food but much quieter.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealWe all enjoyed our meals. The hanger steak was a big hit at our table. The waitress was pleasant and recommended a nice wine. We had not been there for a while but will return soon.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent neighborhood Italian!I love the separate rooms, provides a very quiet, and possibly romantic feel if you take a date, and I recommend that you do.
Service was prompt, knowledgeable, and very friendly.
I took a date on Sundy night and we tried the $20 4-Course meal. We both ordered different items and everything was excellent.
Great experience overall, highly recommended to friends.
Enjoy!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, tight spaceThe food and wine was great but we were packed in like sardines. I had the Fusilli, a bottle of wine and we split a dessert. All were very good. No place for waiting groups to hang out while their table is being prepared to they were standing right next to our table while we ate.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYour neighborhood Italian bistroGood solid Italian rustica style. Housemade pasta. Small but solid wine list. Quiet.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBursting with flavorOur party of five with varied choices all commented on the full flavors of the selections. The tirimisu was light and amazing. The mint chocolate chip gelato was fresh tasting and not too sweet.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was prom night Saturday,andIt was prom night Saturday,and large tables.full of prom dresses. The large groups did not seem to affect the good table service and attention we received. Halibut w spring risotto were really a treat. !
The energy level in the restaurant was high all night, but it is a smaller space and it was mostly full.... Glad that we had reservations!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great restaurantThis is a great restaurant for date night. I have been to Rinata 4 times now and have eaten really well each time. My date had the ravioli with butter squash and I had the bucatini alla bolognese. Both were delicious and the sauces were amazing. The bread with olive oil and chopped kalamata olives was also a very good starter. The ambiance was nice and it was actually the quietest experience I've had there, the other times I had been to Rinata it was always a full house. Very nice evening.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAs any other time we haveAs any other time we have been there, terrific food. I bit noisy, but not bad and the service is just fine. We really have enjoyed Rinata every time we have gone.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulFound on TripAdvisor, it was a gem. Delicious food, courteous staff and Mon and Tue is 1/2 priced bottles of wine.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Date Night menu was outstandingThe Date Night menu was outstanding and so was the food! From the mussels to the beet salad to the asparugus ravioli to the tiramisu unbelieveable! Truly the food could not have tasted any better-the fresh flavors in each dish were superb! Even though our server could have been friendlier and a bit more attentive I still gave it a 5. Don't miss Sunday night date night-4 courses for #20.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA very pleasant surprise find!Food was all outstanding (caesar salad, hanger steak, tiramisu). Waiter was attentive and very friendly, appropriately chatty, but gave us privacy. I had requested with my reservation a table in a quiet area if possible because I wanted to get acquainted with a new friend; they delivered ... walking through another room I found it quite noisy. Rinata was selected by my friend over my two suggestions; I was very pleased when I left.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time at a fourWe had a great time at a four top in the bar area for dinner. Food and service were great! We will be back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of 4 enjoyed theOur party of 4 enjoyed the ravioli, gnocchi with shrimp (x2), and halibut entrees. Delicious as usual. The menu rotation keeps us coming back regularly.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food we ordered was veryThe food we ordered was very good. We enjoyed our baked feta appetizer. I would serve a different type of bread with the olive oil and kalamata tapenade. The salt on the crust of the focaccia was too much. Our waitress was prompt, attentive and friendly. Enjoyed Rinata very much.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for date night!My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 4 year anniversary and it was perfect; the food was great, the service even better, and the atmosphere fantastic. Low lighting for a romantic feel but not so low that you can't even read your menu (I'm picky about lighting). The menu is small but the food is great, and that bread that comes with the meals - Amazing! I had the hanger steak with mashed potatoes, the demi sauce wasn't to my taste but it was still a great meal. He had a sausage pizza from the happy hour menu and it was $6 and bigger than a dinner plate - he loved it. We also ordered dessert, a lava cake with gelato for him and just a scoop of vanilla gelato for me. Both were really great, truly delicious gelato.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy food. Always excellent.Yummy food. Always excellent. Kudos to the chef! Never disappointed. Never!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food is the normWe always have a good meal here, the food was outstanding as usual! Appetizers, entrees, dessert- all was delectable! We went a little later, around 8:00pm... Only downside that night was some bad vibes from staff around 10pm while we were bellied up at the bar finishing our bottle of house wine- I thought the hours were until 11pm on Fridays? We do live nearby, however, and have been here several times before and have never felt less than welcome on any other visit- hopefully it was just a fluke!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat italian dishes and prettyGreat italian dishes and pretty good wine selection for such a small place.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time we dine at RinataEvery time we dine at Rinata it is exceptional. The food is delicious, the service is awesome and we always have the best time!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my fav italian restaurant!I have always liked dining at Rinata. You can tell the chef take time and pride in preparing food because the quality is always there. They also serve dishes that are not found everywhere, or at least give it that unique twist. The lamb meat sauce (on Bucatini alla Bolognese) is done really well and so is breaded cod with arugula risotto. The house baked ciabatta bread with olive tapenade is always given as a starter and it gives a very nice taste to whats to come.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT A+This was our 2nd time, and we had a great experience again :) It's my girlfriend's favorite place now. The ambiance is great. The food tastes good. And the staff was very accommodating. We're definitely coming back!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
