Had two days in NYC. Passed Rino's after theatre matinee. Went in, on a hunch. Great ambience, but wow, we found everything was unexpectedly just perfect - the service, the food, the atmosphere, hard to find this combination anywhere. Beats ANY Italian restaurant, and we have dined in a lot of them. Where did we eat the second night? Why settle for less than the best - we went back to Rino's!

We were referred to this restaurant as one that the locals frequented, where the service was excellant and the chef would be happy to prepare and serve dishes not listed on the menu. Maybe that is indeed the case for locals who dine there - but not for my sister-in-law and me. We arrived late, about 10 pm, after touring downtown. As we were travel weary and the hour was late, we decided to share an entree, vegetables, and a half carafe of wine. That decision must have offended the waiter as we received terrible service from that point on. There was a $2 service charge for 'sharing' posted on the menu - we were totally ok with that charge! The steamed vegetables were cold and the seafood pasta 'ok'. I just don't feel that we should be held hostage to the waiters expectations of 'what we should have ordered'. We left the establisment with very uncomfortable feelings. It was not a good experience.

Pros: great bread

Cons: service

I don't know where to start, so I'll start at the beginning (always a good idea), when we came in on a warm and humid night and the place was hot as blazes. The front door was open, as was a large bay window in the front. I asked the manager about the lack of AC, and he said that the AC was on. I asked how effective it could be with the door and window open, and his replay was "that's how we've been doing it for the past 20 years. Next, I noticed how the prices listed on the restaurant's web site bore no resemblance to the menu at the restaurant. For example, the grilled veal chop on the web site is $22.95, but at the restaurant it's $27.95. Other items were similarly incorrect. Speaking of the veal chop, when I asked the waiter to describe the type of chop, he told me (at 6PM) that they didn't have any available because of a "large party." My pasta was good, once it was returned to the kitchen and brought back with the right sauce. My veal franchaise was terribly over salted, though the veal itself was tender and well cooked. And yes, the bread was very good. Service, not so much.

Pros: Too few to mention

Cons: Just about everything

.

The Pinot Grigio the waiter chose was rather nice.The bread was so amazing that my mother ate 7 pieces before the calamari appetizer.The calamari was the most tender we ever tasted.We all had homemade pasta dishes which were very tasty.We finished with regular coffee which was amazing,a cappucino which was very good.Desert was Italian cheesecake so so yummy.A very good dining experience.

I found this by researching City Search and Trip Advisor. This restaurant has it all, service, personality , reasonable wine prices, killer food. Frequented by locals who are regulars. You never want to miss a place like this when visiting a city. Very good overall price/value rating. Sicilian cooking with great sauces. You feel like you are eating with the family.

My wife and I ate here on June 18th, and had a wonderful meal. We felt as if were eating with the family.
We had reservations at 8:00 P.M. When we arrived we were seated immediately. Every one of the restaurant's staff was very friendly, and the manager even visited our table several times. The special
for the evening was seafood pasta, with linguini; muscles; shrimp; calamari; and clams. It was absolutely
delicious. We both thought, even with a bottle of wine the price was a very good value. When we were served our coffee the manager brought us a piece of cheesecake on the house. Excellent dinning experience.

This place is soooo good. Everything from salad to dessert. Homemade pasta and bread - not for weight watchers - but hey if you're on holiday why not? The service was quick and helpful. One of the owners was there and he came over and chatted with us and made us feel welcome. The value far outweighs the reasonable price. Go to this restaurant.

We found this restaurant while searching on Citysearch for a place to eat before the theatre. Everyone gave it a good review and they were correct. Small place, not crowded when we arrived, but by the time we left it was full. The food was delicious with many choices, the service was good, although they did forget about us towards the end of the meal. Prices were reasonable for the city. We do recommend not sitting against the wall in the back, or you will hear people going to the restroom during your meal. Other than that, all in all a good experience.

This place is great. Excellent italian comfort food. Not fancy but the food is amazing. I've lived in the neighborhood for seven years and can't believe that I just ate here for the first time a month ago - and it was my Mother who lives in Chicago who actually suggested it. She loved it too. Lots of tourists in there so that keeps all the NY'ers away - too bad - they don't know what they are missing.

To be honest...the food there is really not bad...above average...consider the price...However, the service is really bad...the pizza we order came uncut...when we asked the waiter to take it back and cut it for us...He had to pull the pizza to confirm that it was not cut in front of us! Like that we have reason to lie to him! And be careful when u charge ur card! they typed one more zero and made our bill from $178 to $1780 and forgot to void it!

This restaurant was beyond our expectations. We went with a group of 15 women who love to have a nice meal. The waiters went out oftheir way to meet our dinign needs. the food was outstanding and it did not break the pocketbook even with acouple of glasses of wine. Highly recommended. Make reservations if you are a group of 4 or more. Fills up quickly after a play.

I eat here frequently because the food and service are consistently terrific. Restaurant is small but not cramped. Thin-crust pizza is yummy but I generally opt for the chicken, fish or pasta dishes. My favorite is the chicken parmesean -- I know . . . so mundane -- but Rino's take on the comfort-food classic is perfect. Chicken is moist and not overwhelmed by the sauce and cheese. I usually ask for an angel hair pasta side instead of potatoes and veggies. Ambience is not elegant but, for me, the food and service win out over mood lighting and hip flower arrangements.

Probably one of the most underated places in NYC.
Fantatsic thin crust pizza and great chicken, veal and pasta dishes. Service is very attentive; this place can't be beat; go and you won't be disappointed!

We ate here after seeing a play recently and we were very happy with the food, service, atmosphere and price. Conveniently located near Theater District, it was one block away from Neil Simon Theater. Small restaurant, open to street on 8th avenue. I had Filet Mignon, my daughters had pasta and caesar salads. My wife had swordfish and salad. I had two glasses of wine. Cost $110. Can't beat it.

We eat here all the time. It was so hard for us to find a good, cheap italian restaurant without travelling all the way down to little italy. Rino is it for us.
