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.

We are from Melbourne and stayed one night in Wangaratta. We booked online without expecting too much. How pleasantly surprised we were - we were given a table beside overlooking the river, the service and food were excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant. Rob and Rachel

The meal my wife and I had was very good and the service was excellent. I love sitting on the back verandah on a warm summer night looking over the Ovens River. We have always enjoyed our visits.

I really enjoyed my experience at this restaurant, had read the reviews and the location of the place stood out for somewhere I'd like to try.

I had the scallops for entree. Absolutely beautiful for for presentation. I found everything complemented each other well, it was however a little bit salty for my liking and overpriced for only two scallops. At $16 I'd expect 4 is appropriate.

Four main I had the fettuccine dl mare . The pasta was cooked beautifully in a lovely rich tomato sauce. The seafood complemented the dish well and was cooked well. A good portion size for what you pay for.

Overall I would love to return to this restaurant and try what else do you have to offer. The menu is well thought-out and the location is blissful.

Hubby & I celebrated our 15th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday night. Service was excellent! Food delicious! Full of flavour & presented beautifully. I can see why it was busy. Food came out in good time. We shared a gnocci main as entree. You can tell it was an old family recipe. Very lovely! Then pork belly & beef fillet as main. So yummy 5 stars from us!

Delicious meals and professional service. Ozmist cooling system proved invaluable on a 40 degree day. The house made gelato is always a hit summer or winter!

We found our main meal was very slow getting to us. 45 minutes after ordering was very slow. It wasn’t very busy. Our friend had only ordered an entree but had to leave as she had an appointment. Apart from that we couldn’t complain. Our sweets arrived in reasonable time. The food is extremely delicious. Our waiter & waitress were very friendly. I would recommend your venue to friends & will definitely be coming back. Our friend will also come back but will make sure the rest of her afternoon is free. 🤗⭐️🤗

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.
