Rinaldos Casa Cucina is located in one of Wangaratta’s original art deco buildings – once home to the local garage – now a beautiful trattoria-style dining space offering indoor and outdoor dining options and take-away gelato bar.
At Rinaldos Casa Cucina expect to experience Adam Pizzini’s love for Italian home style cooking, for family, for seasonal local produce and for the place he calls home – the lower valleys of Victoria’s High Country.
Adam is passionate about show-casing the best of what Wangaratta, the King Valley, Milawa Gourmet Region and surrounding area has to offer.
Rinaldos is a little ‘touch of Italy’, over-looking the picturesque Ovens River, in the heart of Wangaratta.

Service was very attentive and the young staff tried hard. An above average wine list with a good range of Italian wine including (with surprise) four choices of Barolo. Food above regional average and wherever I looked guests were having a good time. A telling observation.

Fabulous, except for the party of 70 guests alongside us. The main speaker was screaming into the microphone which was particularly annoying.

Service is fantastic. Very happy helpful and attentive staff, couldn't fault them.
Food was unfortunately disappointing and rather tasteless. Loads of cheese on top which I usually like but it was to much. Fresh greens were crisp tasty and very fresh but then drowned in cheese again -Not necessary, the vegies spoke for themselves. Has the potential to be great but I felt it fell short. Sorry

We were catching up with friends we had not seen for several years. All of us were visiting Wangaratta. We booked online via Open Table. We were greeted by a very efficient and friendly staff member. We were surprised by the size of the restaurant and the excellent choices on the menu. Food and wine were all local produce. Meals were excellent and very flavoursome.

We were visiting from Perth and this restaurant was recommended by a friend, so glad, because we absolutely loved it!! Food was exceptional, we certainly did not expect this quality of authentic italian cuisine. Staff were super friendly and service was brilliant! Loved seeing the whole pig on the spit as we walked in.... it was packed with flavour with bang on crackle. Could not fault this place ...beautiful restaurant, do yourself a favour and try it, you will not be disappointed!

This was our fourth time dining experience at Rinaldo’s. The service was excellent, speedy, knowledgeable and friendly staff. The food was very good - well presented and tasty. Portion size of the Barramundi was small which was disappointing.
Beverage offerings were extensive and the staff were extremely helpful and attentive.
The biggest disappointment - the restaurant was freezing!! Three of the party were forced to don overcoats during the meal and the cold was such that the whole experience was a major disappointment. Consensus of the party - Never again in winter!

Thank-you for your feedback, John. It was an particularly cold evening and we have since rectified the issue, which will keep the restaurant warm in future. Kind Regards, Rinaldo's Team

My daughter, my granddaughter & myself went to Rinaldos for dinner as an early birthday dinner for ourselves. The staff was respectful of my granddaughter and ensured that she was catered for first. The food was amazing and a great selection of the drinks.

Our party of four enjoyed another evening of fine dining at Rinaldo's. We have never had an ordinary meal here. We noted the wine list has been changed to reflect a variety of italian style grapes...so no chardonnay, however pinot grigio delicious. Highly recommended.
