I've been to Rino's Place once. The food was awesome but the wait was 3+ hours. It was a Friday night.
Has anyone been there on a Sunday night? I'd love to take my parents there while they are visiting, but waiting a long time, outside, would not work for them.
But, if it's not crazy busy (in general), I think we can swing it.

It's been mentioned that if you have 6 people in your party, you can get a reservation. Otherwise, you could take your chances & show up on Saturday about 4:30 & you might get seated right away. If it's still a 3 hour wait at that point, you could maybe put in your name, drive to Square One Mall & do a little shopping, & you'll still be able to do dinner there at 7:30, which isn't too late.
I attempted to go there this past Saturday at 4:10, post-workout, totally starving -- I know, bad idea -- and ready to eat the bejesus out of some pasta only be told we were facing "at least" a three and a half hour wait. They did offer to take down a phone number, but I left my boyfriend in charge of the decision making and he declined to do that. Apparently people started lining up at 2:30 to put their names down. I already couldn't stand Guy Fieri...
Anyhow, according to their website, they are closed on Sunday. My roommate and her dad ate there around 4:30 on a Thursday a few weeks ago and she said it was pretty empty.
