    Rinaldi's is owned and operated by Rinaldi, (grandson to Mr. & Mrs. Rodoquino)  
​ 
    Rinaldi is back in the kitchen! After 25 years as one of the original Bella Napoli cooks. Do not confuse with the Bella Napoli at this location from 2010 to 2012! These are new owners & New Chef since 2013!! Taught by his Grandmother Carmella and Aunt Rose he is back. All Dishes made to order including the Lasagna!!! Old world cooking with Modern Dishes and Fusion Italian Dishes!! Come and taste the difference!! Come and see what all the buzz is about!!! 

    Rinaldi grew up living with his grandmother Mrs. Rodoquino in the apartment above Rinaldi's Restaurant. He   watched and learned from his grandmother on how to prepare everything from scratch. Fortunately he paid attention to  her 'old world' cooking style and mastered those 'homestyle'  tastes and flavors which is being served for all to enjoy at the restaurant today! Grandma would be very proud!

    He remembers when customers would come into the restaurant, sit down and relax -- talking with one another like one big happy family! Others would just come in to pick up a takeout order. Back in the day, customers would bring in their own pots and pans to transport the food home. It was all good stuff then as it is now!

  Rinaldi valued and appreciated that time when everything was made with pride and people appreciated fine home cooked meals. He has incorporated that old fashion comfortable charm! 

Rinaldi focus and goal is to bring back that authenticity
                                           ​<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
