Well kept secret which I am passing around as this Italian restaurant is divine. Nice cozy environment with wonderful food. Still thinking about what a delicious meal we had!
The food is always good. I've never had a disappointing meal.
Food is always outstanding❤️
The food at Rinata is always fresh and flavorful. They make their own pasta, and when I want a true Italian flavor this is where I come. Their wine selection is decent and they use good wine glasses (important). They also have a full bar.
Rinata is a family favorite. Especially during the winter, when the Italian style interior feels warm and cozy. The menu lends itself to cozy dishes that feel like they may have been braising all day. It is like a warm bear hug on the most brutal of winter nights. And when temperatures dip a score or two below zero...that is no small thing.
I was so impressed with everything. Everyone at our table ordered something different and we all enjoyed every single bite. The service was great. The ambiance was great. It was a fabulous experience. Definitely would encourage everyone to visit.
Rinate, with it's tasting menu, is a great deal with gourmet ingredients and preparation. The rigatoni with elk was very flavorful. What's in that sauce? The bucatini Amatriciana was the best I've tasted in the Twin Cities, bright and spicy. We'll be back!
I am a Rinata irregular. Given that I live 15 or more miles from it, that is. And that we like to cook ourselves. But when I want food I can count on, an informal vibe, zero attitude and good value wines, Rinata is my favorite place for going out.
We sampled a number of menu items, and all were very good. Quite frankly, what we liked best was the ambiance...it was QUIET, although much of the restaurant was filled while we were there. Very nice setting for an anniversary dinner, as we could easily have a conversation. We will go back!
