We went to Rinata for dinner last night, our first time there. The setting is charming and intimate. We were led into the main dining room, a little bigger and less crowded, and a very pleasant space. Jessica, our waiter, was friendly, helpful and unpretentious....More

Restaurant week fail. We did not find the food as delicious as those who posted as such. While beautiful the food tasted very average. The ambiance was ok though clearly they can spend a little on modernizing and updating a very dated space. Service was...More

I have drove by this for years. Was I surprised how amazing the food was! They had a party so our waitress was really busy but took the time to check in and be friendly. The food was soooo delicious and I can be picky!

Enjoyed my meal of fresh and spicy pasta. The appetizer was delicious. Best part was the service which was friendly and knowledgeable.

I had a birthday party in this restaurant with friends and everyone was satisfied with what they had. For mine, I ordered wild boar pasta and it was perfect! Too bad that I didn't order dessert.

I wish I'd known about this place earlier, as I come to Minneapolis frequently. The food is Italian -- obviously homemade. Chicken and red lentil soup is fantastic. Spaghetti and meatballs also. I've been there twice now, and have found the wait staff consistently helpful...More

Great taste in a quaint, cozy location. Wait staff was excellent and the pizza was delicious. Bartender doesn't skimp on the mixer either. Well done all around.
