Since it was a Friday evening around 6:45PM we knew many restaurants would be busy....Cafe Rinaldi was no exception. We were headed back to Syracuse and were hoping to find a nice spot for the 4 of us. There were no seats available in the dining room but there were 4 available seats on the lovely bar. We were greeted... More

As officially an Old Forge resident for a year, and having been around the blocks, I can say hands down this is my favorite place to go. I have been a little disappointed with some of the other places in town My only complaint is that their menu prices don't match the prices we were charged.

What a great meal we had here. The pasta fagioli was excellent. Full of beans in a tasty broth. We had the sausage calabrese and the chicken rinaldi. Both were excellent. Portions enough to take some home. The cannoli was very good too. Ask for Dana. She was a wonderful server.

I waited nearly an hour for my food. The two others with me waited 30 minutes. The couple who came in after us ordered the haddock, which I ordered, and a pasta dish, which was served to them about 20 minutes later. Yes, I did time the service.The ones I was with were finished eating by the time I got... More

This restaurant has so many great dishes, and we've been there so many times, it's hard to say what is the best but I'll pick three items. The best appetizer is the Grilled Shrimp. It's served over toast points in a scampi sauce, perfect. Without a doubt their mushroom risotto is the best I have ever had, it alone is... More

As you face the building, parking is on the left. There is a 2nd lot to the left that as of now you could also park in (it is not owned by the restaurant). Upon entering, go left and check min with the hostess I noticed that most people held on to their coats. The drinks are reasonably priced and... More

Rinaldi's is a family run restaurant that serves Italian food a la Scranton. They give you more food than you can possibly eat no matter how good it tastes. We had the "pizza" which is served in what they term as a "tray". Basically, this was more like I would call a calzone than a pizza. We ordered a white... More

Food was all delicious, huge traditional antipasto, risotto cakes in the vodka sauce are a delight. Gigantic portions. Bottled beer needs to be colder. Good service.
