You’ll immediately feel like you’re part of the family at Rino’s - mostly because you’ll be sitting so close to the next table that you can’t help but overhear how Uncle Antonio’s latest hair loss remedy is coming along. Restaurant size aside, the menu is pretty standard American-Italian food - bolognese, chicken parmigiana, veal marsala - with unbelievably large portions. You can’t make reservations for parties smaller than six, so plan ahead and be prepared to wait in line before they open.
