Rinaldi's is owned and operated by Rinaldi, (grandson to Mr. & Mrs. Rodoquino)
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.
You will certainly enjoy the old world charm along with our warm cozy decor, soft lights, comfortable seating, casual atmosphere along with flat screen TV’s and a stone faced brick oven. Our staff is friendly and professional and always happy to serve you. You will feel like you are back at momma’s house.
We offer a wide selection of elegant desserts freshly prepared on our premises.
You can either sit inside or outside on the Patio. Our establishment seating occupancy accommodates 90 guests.
We also do private party events and outside catering.
