I have been here probably 10 times in the past 3 months while visiting family. The staff is amazing, the owner greets people warmly, the wait staff is efficient and the pizza is fabulous! Excellent meatball grinders too! A real find in a small town!

I have not had a bad meal there in years. Chef's specials are always good additions to the standard Italian dishes, sandwiches and pizzas.

Diversified menu, fast service and great food. The eggplant is excellent. Sliced thin and if you order the peppers and onions on your grinder or sandwich, it's amazing.

Stopped on my home for eggplant grinder. It's ok, I've had better but the place is always crowed with locals eating in or take out. Like their onion pizza.

We have been dining in ( back room a lot of people miss) and doing take out so many years I can't believe I've never rated. Great meals, super pizza, and long time help have made this "piazza-rant" a favorite that we've supported for years. There's a reason this place has survived for so long!! Try it.

Food is average. If you want to experience the manager's unbecoming temperament toward his employees, this is the place to go to.

I had no idea that they had a large cozy dinning room in back of the restaurant ! The owner greeted us on the way in and thanked us on the way out . I had the chicken parm and my spouse had the scrod both cooked to perfection. I started with homemade pasta vegetable soup which was tasty. Worth... More

While they have only one size in the GF pizza it is perfect. I get spinach, onions and black olives.

I've met many people in the area who frequent this place by CVS. It has the look of any Western Mass pizza joint-ovens dominate the space and it is usually crowded with locals grabbing take out.. Not one of them knew the secret. But perhaps nobody has noticed the back door? It looks like it leads to a utility closet... More

Although the staff is super friendly at Rinaldi's, it is outweighed by the terrible food. The steak was covered in some type of canned gravy, presumably to hide its appearance, and honestly I did not feel so well after eating it. Although the servers were friendly, they were very slow, even by suburban standards, and the menu selection was limited... More
