  When visiting landmark restaurants in major cities, I try my best and temper expectations.  Everything I have heard and read about Rino’s in East Boston was that it was fantastic.  Here is a picture above of the street corner where it is located.  What you don’t see here are strip malls, huge parking lots, and flashy signs and lights....
