We had a wonderfully enjoyable night out at Rinaldos. The food was great as to the ambience. The service was a highlight. Our waiter and waitress were just gorgeous and ensured our night was perfect.

Beautiful calamari for entree, it was delicate and tender, for main I had the beef that was cooked just right for my liking, &, how can you go to an Italian restaurant without a Tiramisu, it was perfect and the service was great too.
I’ll be back on my next visit to Wangaratta.

Really great food but a bit disappointed our favorite steak dish has been cut from the menu. Steak we had was excellent anyway. Good service and atmosphere and had a really nice time with old friends.

It was a birthday dinner for my wife. Service was very slow with the exception of asking for drinks. We left and did not wait any longer to be offered dessert or coffee as it was getting too late to wait. Some cold water would of been nice too as it was warm sitting outside.

We loved the atmosphere and service of this restaurant. The price was pretty steep. No complimentary house bread and olive oil/butter, yet we were paying for $16 for entree which was only small 2 pieces of battered Zucchini flower. And the main was overcooked spaghetti carbonara $25 with hardly any pork cheek pieces on the plate, was pretty bland too. Lamb two ways was nice. This restaurant will have an extra 10% surcharge of weekend/ Public Holiday.

While holidaying in the area, we visited Rinaldo's to quietly celebrate a special occasion. We secured a delightful table overlooking the river and parkland. I was pleased to see that the wine list contained a large number of local wines and upon making our selections the drinks arrived promptly. We both ordrered the house made gnocchi for main course and it was perfect. A decent serve of plump pillows of potato goodness with a rich ragu topped with parmesan. Simple and deeply satisfying. The banana fritters for dessert were very interesting, a little rich and sweet for my palate but I could easily imagine many, many people enjoying them. The wait staff did an excellent job of looking after our needs through the evening. Overall it was a very good dining experience. We would recommend Rinaldo's Casa Cucina to our friends and we will return when in the area in future.
