I went the other night for my anniversary and I have to say the food was excellent. I love the look of the restaurant; it gives a very elegant and warm feeling.

Four of us had a delicious dinner Sat. night at this cozy restaurant. The chef is A-1. The service was tops and it was very romantic when the owner, who couldn't be nicer, played the piano. We can't wait to go back this week-end.

I brought my daughter and her boyfriend to Dino's for her birthday when Dino first opened. We had a wonderful dinner and left with a full stomach & a smile on our faces, not to mention the great entertainment of a few piano players. The food was delicious, great service. I went back again 2 weeks later with a female friend and again great service and incredible food. My Filet mignon could be cut with a fork, the Ceaser salad was absolutely delicious. This is a very cozy, comfortable place to eat and I have no doubt that soon it will require a reservation to get a seat. I will be back.

I can't stress enough how great this place is. It is so cozy and the food was out of this world. The staff could not do enough for us. I will be back and I recommend it to all.

My husband and I can't wait to go back on Sat.- the chef's special salmon is calling me. Two other couples are joining us - I can hear the piano already! Everyone should try this restaurant and will be hooked after five minutes.

This place is horrible. The service was seriously under par. The owner was rude after asking for a cup of coffee when we waiting 20 minutes and instead of speaking with the waiter repremanded us for speaking too loudly so that other customers wouldnt hear. The food was so so but not enough to warrent the bad service.
Obviously u don't have the patience for good food and was not there to dine.If u wanted a Diner there is one near by.They will serve u coffee all day for $1.75

I cound not agree more with you. I looked at the menu and there was nothing jumping out at me as appetizing to eat. The menu was ordinary - food I cook myself. When I go out to dine I want to be wowed! Icould not complain about the service. I thought that was satisfactory. Piccols food is much better!

I COULD NOT AGREE MORE! I THOUGHT THE MENU LEFT A LOT TO BE DESIRED. FOOD THAT I WOULD COOK MYSELF. WHEN I GO OUT TO EAT I WANT TO BE WOWED. THAT I WAS NOT! WAIT SERVICE WAS SATISFACTORY. PICCOLS FOOD IS MUCH BETTER. I WOULD NOT GO BACK AGAIN AND MY HUSBAND HAS CONCURRED WITH ME ON THAT.

Can't be beat for absolutely exquisite food in a humble setting and excellent service (which is all part of its charm).
Get your best bottle of wine from home etc, and go and enjoy

The food and the service was excellent. The waiters were very attentive to all our needs. The menu was unique compared to other Italian Restaurants. The waiters were a lot of fun. I would rate Dino's Joint 10 out of 10.

Sounds like it's not your kind of place... I've known Dino for 20 years. Nothing but good. Methinks you were loud, rude and overbearing. Art thou Jewish?
Art thou anti semetic?? and rude???

Went to Dino's on a friday night. Thought the place was tiny, but worth a shot. Not impressed with the food. Was asked to leave after not even two hours so another party could sit there. Would not recommend this place to anyone. You could go to much better places than this in huntington!!!!!!!!

I've been there several times. Great food and an excellent wine list. Friendly service from a staff who does everything to please. The decor and ambiance is warm and inviting. This, along with the live piano that is often heard in the dining room can make for a really pleasant evening. Prices are moderate. I recommend it for sure.

My wife and I went to this place a couple of weeks ago, after seeing Jersey Boys in Manhattan.
The food was fine. The place at most holds 40 people. I am glad when we went there were only 8 other people in the restaurant, since the tables are extremely close together. If this place was full, I am sure it would be extremely noisy. I am sure the wait staff means well, but as soon as I would drink less than 1/3 of my water, the waiter would be there to refill it. I found this to be annoying. With the wait staff of five having nothing to do since it was quiet this Saturday night at 6 p.m., I thought as I was eating my filet, I was being stared at.
We should have stayed in Manhattan and had dinner at Gallaghers. I don't regret going since I heard a lot about the place, but I wouldn't go back.
Upon exiting the place, the entrance is so small, that an entering couple had to exit the entrance way so that my wife and I could get out, and we are small people.
