    The lobster ravioli is THE best. So amazing. Also enjoyed the fettuccine alfredo. Perfectly cooked pasta and amazing flavor. Buffalo Mozzarella was also a good starter.

    Great little Italian place in East Boston. Get there early for a table as they do not take reservations.

    (Best of Boston 2013-EAST BOSTON) Improper Bostonian says, "Rino's is the poster child for making the most of what you've got. With a dining room the size of other Italian restaurants coat checks..."

    Try the "Layered Eggplant" for an appetizer; the blend of pesto sauce, eggplant, and mozzarella cheese was an unexpectedly delicious combo.  For dinner, the veal dishes are well done; try one.

    Excellent food, but watch out- the soda is not bottomless and I was charged $2 per glass.

    It is worth all the hype. It it worth a two hour drive and three hour wait. Stop across the street for a pre and post drink!!

    Yes, there's amazing Italian food outside of the North End. Locals have always known that it's the place to go for huge ravioli and excellent homemade pasta. [Eater 38 Member]

    The bruschetta is like none other, along with the mozzarella balls! Both amazing. The gnocchi is light and melts in your mouth, the lobster ravioli is amazing, and the fucilli is the most amazing

    Lobster ravioli here is the bomb! A MUST try. The ravioli is stuffed generously with lobster meat and melts in your mouth. And definitely order their calamari for starters!

    Get the eggplant appetizer w/pesto! It won't disappoint. Entree portions are absolutely huge. And don't let the wait time scare you away - get a drink across the st - but save your appetite!

    Looking for great Italian food with even greater prices? Look no further. Rino's has been featured on a few TV shows. Paninis are popular at lunch, and the Shrimp Scampi is a must for dinner. Read more

    Make reservations if you have 6 people. If you don't, be sure to visit Prima E Dopo across the street for drinks and appetizers or stop by after dinner for dessert.
