The last time we were at Dino, they were only playing emotional ballads from the 90’s, and at least one employee was singing along. That’s the vibe of this place. It’s a little neighborhood Italian spot with a cozy, minimalist space, and it’s perfect for a low-key date night. Prices are also pretty reasonable, especially when you factor in the very decent portion sizes. A bowl of pasta here will put you to sleep, and if you’re into simplicity, we suggest the spaghetti limone.
