                 Went to Rinaldi's with friends on a Late Sunday night. Arrived and found not a soul in sight....we were the only people there. We were met by our server who 
                 was very nice and told us to "pick a table". Atmosphere very nice but TVs around the dining room felt more like a sports bar and not a upscale dining room. 
                 It's a BYO so we brought a few libations but had to ask for ice and wine bucket. Some of the apps we ordered were delightful. Italian tacos are a must have. 
                 Drunken clams had the drunk part that was awesome but the clams rubbery. Dinner consisted of 2 steaks (exactly the same steaks ordered cooked the same but 
                 with different toppings) and 2 Saltimbocas (1veal and 1 chicken). Steaks were inconsistent. 1 was thick and very rare with a great flavorful sauce and the other was 
                 about 1/2" thick and overcooked. A bit disappointing. Veal Saltimbocas was very good and flavorful but the pasta was not cooked in enough salted water so it lacked flavor. 
                The juice was ok but I kept adding grated cheese to flavor it. Pretty much the same for the Chicken Saltimbocas. We asked what desserts were made on site and 
                ordered one zappoli dessert and one cream puff dessert but our server came back to advise they were out of both. Disappointing and she probably should have known
                that before she took our oeder. We ended up ordering cheesecake and chocolate custard pie to share. Cheesecake was dry and just ok and chocolate pie was very good. 
                Prices were very high for a local neighborhood restaurant. Almost $200 for dinner (remember its a BYO). While the food was ok it was way too expensive for me to give a rave

             Rinaldi's Response!    
             This is why I will not be doing groupon anymore! These 2 customers came in together & wrote 2 of the same reviews on this site. They came in with a 2 week old expired $80.00 voucher & were 
             making a seen so I excepted the voucher! They put 3 stars to make the review look legit! They come in on a Sunday night @ 8:00pm & stay to 10:30 which is not a problem we never rush customers 
             but we close on Sunday @ 9:30 & so yes it is slow at that time there was 1 other table there! On weekends we have screen savers on our TV’s but during the week if a customer request us to put on a game and it is slow we will! 
             They say the clams were rubbery they are fresh opened and steamed! Steaks where not the same 1 was 10 oz the other 12 oz! I personally went to this table and asked if everything was ok. 
             There exact words everything is wonderful and they will definitely be back! I also gave them a complimentary after dinner drink! If the steaks were not cooked right why not tell the waiter! 
             All dished came back clean they ate everything! Please check out our menu prices & do the math! There whole check came out to $124.00 then minus the $80.00 voucher they paid $44.00. 
             Not all groupon customers are bad a majority of them are great and become regular customers. But then there are the nickle dimers who want to tip on the value of the voucher, 
             who get up set when the voucher expires, the ones who want to use 2 vouchers on a table & then when they don't get there way they write bad reviews it is not worth the head aches!   
             but have no fear this will save our regular customers & new customers money! instead of doing these vouchers and advertising we will be lowering our prices for you our valued customer!

              Service was very good. The veal dish was good. The fish dish was not cooked. The kitchen was Smokey which infiltrated the dining room. 
              They tried to make it right by heating up the original plate. They also provided a complimentary dessert.

             Response By Rinaldi's        
             I apologize for the fish I was a man short that Saturday & had a fill in helping out! I remember this table because it was the only complaint! 
             the fish came back it wasn't raw just a little pink on the inside. I put the fish in a metal cooking plate and put it in the broiler and then put it back on the original plate with 
               the pasta and sauce! To make up for it we did give free desserts & also took the fish dish dinner off the check! We always try our best to please the customer! 
​               Unfortunately you can’t please everyone! As far as the kitchen being smokey we did not get any other complaints that night nor in the past!

                The veal is so thin it's the best I've ever had. It's served over linguine. The combination makes for a delicious meal. Expect good food for a good price

               This is the third time I have been to RInaldi's (formarly Bella Napoli) I am an Italian-American who grew up in NYC and in a city where 50% of the restaurants are Italian, 
                I now can discriminate good from bad and mediocre authentic Italian cuisine. On this trip my wife had their spinach ravioli and rated it FIVE STARS.     
               Delicate, flavorful, al dente (if that is even possible with ravoli)  I tried a dish from the "Healthy menu" Chicken with mango over lettuce"               
               The option was over spinach or lettuce. It was superb! My general comment about the environment which I have voiced whenever I have visited this establishment
                has to do with the TV screens.The first time I was there they had three TV screens tuned to sports events. I said to the manager. "Why sports - is this a sports bar?" 
               Today the selection on all three screens was a selection fro the Fios "urban landscapes" collection. It was very pleasant to look at.
               I can highly recommend this restaurant.

                     Although I was surprised to get a $4 charge on the bill for an Alfredo sauce that was put on the side of spaghetti. It has a friendly atmosphere. 
                     Service was pretty good. Lauren gave some suggestions which is always helpful. She was right on par with them also!

                and has really a nice cozy atmosphere. The food is great! Rinaldi the grandson of the original Bella Napoli is the cook and the food is great!!

               My family and I went to dinner at Rinaldi's on saturday. Great place ! Amazing food and atmosphere! We will definitely be returning.
               It's a beautiful place and they also had live entertainment. The owner Rinaldi really makes an effort to interact with his customers.
               I recommend the calamari cino appetizer!

             We were a party of four. We were there for 3 hours. There were five other tables of patrons. Not crowded, but the service was extremely slow. Food was lukewarm (eggplant rollatini, 
             cappucino!!), 3 of the 4 of us received our entrees and the 4th waited close to 10 minutes for hers. The food was really good, tho, so my husband and I will give it another try

   I do have your ticket. Your entrée order was put in  8:12 & sent out 8:38. The 4th dinner I do apologize for the waited did not put it in we made it as fast as possible. Remember all dishes are made to 
   order sometimes the waiter makes a mistake and sometimes the kitchen. As far as the food coming out lukewarm  that I can't explain all food comes out as soon as it done! Again I apologize.

              This place is very "Jersey Italian" and it is just the way an italian growing up around here would want a restaurant to be like.I cant believe the list of complaints from some reviews. Too much 
              pasta ruins the meal?Tv's in dining room? Not enough customers inside?To the owners please ignore these silly complaints.A real jersey italian would never complain about being served too 
               much pasta.We enjoy not being able to breathe or stand after eating. According to some mcdonalds must be a wonderful dining experience since it is always packed. This is an excellent
               Italian restaurant.its a place where u can go, have a large meal, and sit with ur friends and family for hours if u choose, just like us italians do at home and on holidays.Rinaldis understands 
              what the  dinner table is all about and I recommend this place to everyone.

              BEST IN TOWN”
              This was our second time eating in this "off the beaten Boulevard" in Kenilworth. The first time we had a coupon for $15 off of $30. What a fantastic little place. Each meal is prepared to order, 
              so if you are in a hurry, this is not a place for you. My husband had the pasta e fagoli soup....a large bowl that we shared and every mouthful was amazing. I had the Chicken Franchaise and 
              took home half my meal along with my pasta. the sauce was the best - I just wanted to drink it.....(but I didn't). Hubby had the chicken parm and the piece of chicken was huge. I would definitely 
              recommend this restaurant to everyone.
              We had to make reservations - but when we got there- there was only 1 other couple. Probably need reservations for Saturday nights. The wait staff and the owner/chef came out to talk to us as 
              if we were family. Loved it and can't wait to go back

          Reponse by Rinaldi
      the customer finishes dinner & receives the check and presents 2 vouchers 1 from restaurant .com  & the second voucher  from Rinald'is that reads "can not be used with any 
      other voucher this includes restaurant.com" in which the waitress explained 3 times! The customer said that the restaurant.com was a gift. The waitress called me and I also explained that it was 
      not  a gift card that it is a $15.00 voucher from restaurant.com that just because some one bought it for you that does not makes it a gift card it makes it a gift voucher! A gift card is a card that is 
      purchased with a face value then redeemed for that value!  I told her if she likes they can use one now and the other the next time they come in! She responded we won't be back! I did not 
      respond and left! I knew at that point the only way they would have been happy was if I took both certificates.  
     We try our best to make all our guest experience with us the best we can but you have to remember we are in business to make money we to have to pay our bills to keep our   
     doors open! Thank you Rinaldi

    "Response by Rinaldi" All dishes are made to order unfortunately if you come on a Saturday night it may take longer for certain dishes to come out especially steaks cooked well done. Most of our 
          customers know this and do not mind the wait! We will not put any dishes out with out my approval! Many establishments will send out dishes before its time to keep the customer from waiting to 
          long! I refuse! the reason 1. The customer will either eat it and be dissatisfied or number 2.the customer will end up sending the dish back in which they will have to wait longer! The longest wait for 
          a dinner after apps are served is 15 to 20 minutes! Thank you Rinaldi

           I came to Bella Napoli (I'm guessing it's now renamed Rinaldi's?) on a Friday night for dinner with my boyfriend. We both ordered filet mignon- I ordered The Christopher, which  
           came  with a fig/balsamic sauce. The sweet, tangy sauce mixed with the steak was incredible, as were the creamy, buttery mashed potatoes (I've tried to cut starch out of my diet, but  
           couldn't resist these!). The crowd here seems mainly middle-aged/elderly, and mostly loyal customers. The -1 star is because they gave me a little bit of a hard time when trying to   
           redeem my http://restaurant.com certificate, but ultimately they accepted it. I definitely plan on going back with a bottle of wine, since it's BYOB :)

             Pretty decent food. My one major complaint was that the sauce for my Mussels Marinara was lukewarm, but it was still tasty. I haven't seen the normal menu because they had a    
             shortened one for the evening. Our waitress was really nice and the rest of the staff was also friendly. We got some free cookies and eggnog because it was Christmas Eve. Much   
             appreciated. Dessert was excellent; we shared the carrot cake and a cake which tasted like a good humor toasted almond ice cream bar. I'd revisit Rinaldi's
             good people, and the place to be.

           If you are looking for authentic Italian pasta dishes with "Moms" home-made sauce you have just found it and that's just for starters. Their fish and veal dishes are extremely tasty.    
           Their mussels marinara in the hotsy totsy sauce are a great way to start your meal followed by shrimp parmigiana (the absolute best and I have had it many times in other 
           establishments), and finish with lemon cello cake. What I like best about this BYOB is that the chef Rinaldi will accommodate you. If you want something that is not on the menu or   
           want a dish modified Ron will go out of his way to satisfy you. The staff and Chef make you feel like family

           I went out last Sunday with my boyfriend for dinner. We went to Rinaldi's because my parents always tell me how great the food is! They were right! It was awesome! Their home 
           made  marinara sauce was delicious, just as good as my Italian family! and the cuts of steak are delish! I had the Janel sauce, just the right kick to it! the seafood also was very good 
           and tasted very fresh! I'm planning a girls night out with my friends and we are defianately coming here, and we are also taking my parents out this weekend there! we will definitely  
           be regulars at Rinaldi's!!!

           Excellent food! I went on a Saturday night with my wife and another couple the service was great and very friendly they made us feel right at home! The food was excellent all dishes 
           made to order a little bit of a wait but worth the wait! If you like spicy the hotsy totsy shrimp appetizer and the steak Dominic excellent! We also ordered the drunken clams & calamari 
           cino both unusual and great never had anything like it before. We also order sausage & long hots great! The rest of the dinners great my wife order the shrimp parm which comes 
           over linguine she loved it! The other couple ordered one clams over linguine & the other pork Murphy they loved it! Great desserts try the crem brulee! They also send us a 
           complimentary after dinner drink! They are a BYOB.. to top off the night they have live entertainment every Saturday! Will be going back very soon

           Of the three entrees purchased one (shrimp francaise over linguini) was good. The other two (ravioli and a chicken dish) were mediocre. Sauce on ravioli appeared Canned diced    
           tomatoes with a little puree added and ravioli themselves comparable to supermarket frozen brand!

         To anyone who has had my sauce it is made 3 times a week this person does not know the difference between chopped tomatoes and fresh plum tomatoes! the raviolis made weekly   
         past reviews rave about the sauce and ravilolis! Stay with Olive Garden!

           Excellent food, pitiful service. Two stars for the quality of the food, but the positive review ends there. For starters, the only one who seemed to be doing any work was the busboy, 
           who was actually kind enough to notice we hadn't been brought anything for an entire hour since we'd arrived. He was the third person in that hour we asked for water (without 
           actually receiving anything until then). The place wasn't even particularly busy. In addition, our orders had not been taken until shortly after that point. Our food finally arrived around 
           the 90-minute mark and we were happy to find that it was quite good. However during the time we ate, two people were seated next to us and were quickly given water, wine, and an 
           appetizer. They seemed to know the waitstaff, who actually spent more time talking to them than doing much of anything else. During the ongoing conversation, one of the   
           waitresses loudly discussed a few topics with them including bestiality and twerking. Lovely. It took us another half an hour to get the bill, which admittedly was an easier wait 
           because we finally had some food in our bellies. In conclusion, if you're either very patient or have some relation to the people who work at the restaurant, you might enjoy your 
           dinner here. If not, stay away until they get their stuff together.
           I'd love to see this place improve in the future because as I mentioned, the food was very good (especially the 'Dominic' steak entree), but they've got quite a few staffing issues to 
           work on in the mean time

           Food here is excellent - spot on. Owner is hands on and tastes everything that leaves the kitchen and the food reflects it. Food takes a little longer than usual as everything is made 
           fresh - no frozen stuff here. Definitely worth the wait.

FREE DINNER OFFER!! TAKE THE YELP CHALLENGE! READ ON.
SOMEONE SHOULD INVESTIGATE YELP!!!!! If you follow reviews especially yelp you must read this! Yelp is not what it appears to be! Pass this on to a friend! Did you know that if you are a business owner and you do not advertise with yelp they will pick and choose reviews they want to list! I did not know this until a few customer brought it to my attention that they had wrote positive reviews on yelp that were listed for a day or two but then taken down with no explanation. A number of reviews were completely taken off that were copied and pasted to my website before disappearing for good! Yelp has listed all negative reviews but not any positive! When I inquired why to yelp they said they could not recommend my business. I asked what does that mean they said they are not familiar with my business that if I was to do some kind of advertising with them they could recommend my business.So in so many words if I was to do some type of advertising with them it would boost the positive reviews to the top of the page & that would mean they would recommend my business. I ask you what does advertising have to do with picking and choosing what reviews are listed! It’s a shame that a small business has to be pushed into a corner to do business! Do not believe any of the reviews if a business does advertising with yelp they will be on the top of the list and the bad reviews will be hidden! So what business is really good and really bad! Update! Yelp has been calling me for the past 6 months to do some type of advertising with them and I have been avoiding there calls. When I spoke to them 6 months prior I told them why would I advertise with yelp with those negative reviews? They said they would call me back in a few days. In one hour after getting off the phone with them I had all positive reviews and the negatives taken down! That was 6 months ago now they have slowly put negative reviews back up and put one 4 star & one 3 star the rest are all old dating back to 2012 when it was under Bella Napoli. If you have been in Rinaldi's and you liked it give it a positive review and see how many days it stays up! PASS THIS ON TO A FRIEND!! up date they had called me 8/1/2015 to advertise I told them why would I want anyone to go on that site to see those old negative reviews. the next day there was a 5 star review put up from 2014 from a customer who I had told about this I don't think they realize what it said! A week later a new 5-star rating was put up like I said lets see how long they stay up!! Up date the review taken down 8/10/2015. Now how to get a free dinner. I challenge anyone who has eaten in Rinaldi's and enjoyed the experience to give a positive review if it stays up for more than 2 week I owe you a dinner!!

             My husband and I went to Rinaldi's for an early dinner yesterday 6/26/16. This was our first time at this restaurant and we were extremely happy with our meal. I had the calamari cino which was OUT  
             OF THIS WORLD and hubby had the sausage with apples and onions. (Hubby is hard to please when it comes to food and he ranted and raved about his appetizer). I had the linguini alfredo with 
             chicken still which was delicious also and hubby had filet mignon medium well. I was floored he didn't complain about anything, he enjoyed his meal as much as I enjoyed mine. Serving portions were more 
             than enough, we could not eat all our food. Our waiter Jeff was a breath of fresh air! Koodo's to the cook, we plan to return to try other items

            I have now eaten here twice. The first time I went with my family and we were all very happy with our food. The service was great, but we were the only table in the restaurant. We decided to host our office 
            party here and chose the family style dinner. They served 20 people hot fresh food which everyone enjoyed. The service was good and the waitresses were nice. We also brought all of the alcohol and 
            saved a bundle. As is common with large parties they added the tip of 20% to the check and I was happy to pay it.

             Whoa, that was good eating! We tried this restaurant for the first time today. We are big fans of the place across the street; however we wanted to try Rinaldi's , for a change of menu and style. Oh my 
             we were not disappointed. Our meals were fantastic. The pumpkin sauce was well prepared with great seasoning, I had it over ravioli that is also "homemade". We each had a chicken dinner. The Cajun 
             sauce was very nice, not too much heat, very pleasant. The Franchais (sp) was also very well prepared. Even though we got our food to go, it was prepped with great care! This is definitely not my last trip to 
             Rinaldi's. Bellismo!!!

             We had a delicious dinner, I enjoyed the Flounder Oreganato over linguine and lemon. My dinner companions had pasta with vodka sauce, and bolognase respectively , and the other diner had chicken    
             piccata . Everyone was satisfied with the food .We were lucky enough to come on a Saturday night when they had an entertainer. His name is Adam Shaber and he really played to the crowd, bouncing 
             around the decades of rock and pop from the 50's to today. They should have him more often. I really enjoyed his vocal style.

              1 star really! The food he rates great but gives a 1 star because of a party that was there before he came in was to loud. We only have 1 room the party was for 20ty people plus we had live entertainment   
              that night how quiet did he think it was going to get. When he came in he seen the party going on he had a choice to stay or leave he decided to stay if it was noisy when you came in did you think it was all 
              of a sudden become quiet!!. But to give a 1 stare because of other customer behavior that is ridiculous. I emailed him and issued him a voucher to come again for dinner. FYI we usually have live 
              entertainment 3 Saturdays a month and 1 Saturday out of the month we have no entertainment for those who want a quiet Saturday night out!! Thank you Rinaldi

               Omg. The worst service I can remember in a long time. It was our waiter's first night and the rest of the staff did not pitch in. In fact, they all seemed to be roaming about aimlessly. The food was mediocre at 
               best. How can you screw up salad....pasta with no flavor (I think the sauce was just hot water), fish portion was tiny, etc. Table with no salt and pepper. Had to beg for grated cheese, extra bread, water 
               refills. Yuk

               RESPONSE FROM RINALDI
               This review Is totally bogus! This person is Karen S. who is married to Steven S. I will not say the last name but he is friends with one of the employees that was terminated 1 week prior! I had a problem 
               with 2 staff workers the week before in which they were terminated. Any body who has been to my restaurant you know I       
               don't have to defend my food!! But its hard to believe someone would be so heartless to write a review about a waiter who was being trained!!

               My wife and I had lunch at Rinaldi's and we both loved it! I can now stop searching for the best calamari ... Rinaldi's has it ... light, flavorful, tender, perfect. Every dish is made fresh, and made exactly the 
               way you want it. I asked for a layer of sausage in my Eggplant Parm ... no problem ... and it was fantastic! Be sure to get the Lemon Cello Cake for dessert. It is just great. We have a new favorite Italian

                spicy, and enjoyable. Chocolate mousse cake a must. Server attentive. We were seated outside due to a private party so server had a walk to get to us. Pleasant, checked back on us frequently. I would 
                highly recommend this restaurant. Sort of a hidden gem.

                 really messed up one of the rating is completely fake he told me he notified yelp & it is still up. The other one was a groupon customer that tried to use a $80.00 expired groupon he ended up excepting it 
                 look what that got him! Both reported and both still up! Shame on yelp. lets see how long this stays up!!!!! WHERE ARE ALL THE POSITIVE REVIEWS! THEY SHOULD BE LISTED NOT HIDDEN!

            fruit Di'mare 8 to 10 mussels 3 came back closed some times fresh mussles refuse to open. But you fail to mention we replaced not only with mussels but we also gave extra shrimp , calamari and

                 My husband and I dined at this restaurant about two weeks ago because we had a Restaurant.com certificate. My expectations were not high because the place was 
                 fairly empty for a Thursday night. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the food and service. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was fresh & tasty. Beware that the portions are unusually large. 
                 My husband & I took more then half our dinners home and froze them in the take home containers. We just reheated them & they were still very good. We will definitely return to this restaurant and 
                 recommended it to others.

              Food took entirely too long to come out and we were quite early for dinner. People were eating and leaving before we were served the meal. Cold near the door.I've been here before and it was quite good.

   Rinaldi's response! I do apologize for the wait but the customer failed to mention it was Valentines day one of the busiest holidays of the year! The customer comes in with 2 adults and 3 children! I will not rush the  
   food out before it is ready! If I do that it will only come back with more complaints.Some dishes may take longer then others, your dish may be an easy dish but the other guest at your table meal may be more           
   more time consuming!  We want  all of our dishes to come out together! Remember all of our dishes are made to order that is what gives us a step above the rest! That is also why we have complimentary 
   entertainment to ease the wait! Thank You Rinaldi!

          On a cold Monday night, decided not to go home after shopping but have a big hot meal someplace close by. Chose Rinaldi's, Very attractive decor. mostly small tables with 3 tvs on the wall (all had on the 
           local weather) Selected Veal Marsala and grilled chicken over vegetables. While we waited we enjoyed the superb loaf of hot italian bread. Tammy our server told us it was homemade and offered to bring us 
           another loaf. She also mentioned the chef didnt like the breads from area delivery services so chose to make his own. She was attentive and friendly.Since this was our first time, she suggested a few items for 
           us, emphasizing everything was made fresh to order. We were both pleased with our selections ( not ones she suggested) and even had leftovers as portions were generous. She made suggestions for 
          dessert and we ordered cheese cake. Tammy also told us about weekend activities and Tuesday night 'make your own' pizza. We were told fresh vegetables of all kinds, as well as many toppings were 
          available for a custom made pizza. Pizza of any kind was not available on this Monday night. ( I am unsure of the reason but saw varieties of pizza were on the menu, so it must not be just a Tuesday night 
          availability) I would not consider this a pizza restaurant Its definitely a quaint Italian restaurant.I know we'll be back

             I enjoyed the hotzy Totzy shrimp and did not get a piece of the breaded mozzarella appetizer that was on the table. My grand daughter ate most it ! The other thing is chicken parm is a pretty simple dish and the only thing that makes the difference in my opinion is the 
             sauce (Gravy) . Yours is one of the best i have ever had . My Italian wife makes her own from the tomatoes we grow in the garden and hers is very good as well . I made 3 different types of meatballs in the last 2 months ( one was a vegan for my daughter) . I am looking 
             forward to trying the ones you make soon . Thanks once again
