Dino’s is a good choice if you’re looking for decent-priced Italian food. They have an extensive selection of appetizers, which are separated by hot and cold choices, and are arguably better than the entrees. You can make a full dinner out of a couple.
The tris di crostini is one of the better appetizers. They are pieces of bread topped with tomato, cheese, pesto and mushrooms and cost about $8 for three pieces of bread. Other appetizers include polenta with your choice of mushrooms, pancetta or sausage and pomodoro as well as winter squash flan and deep fried potato croquettes.
Dino’s has a small, comfortable, laid-back atmosphere with many tables for seating.
Entrees are quite cheap, averaging from $11 to $24. They also serve a wide variety of wines and offer suggestions of that will enhance the flavor of each meal.
