The meat and three lunches are right out of my grandma's kitchen. The greens are not the sterile health-food variety most "home cooking" places offer now. These are the real thing! The cornbread dressing is the real thing, too. When my daughter comes to town, it's Dino's Italian she craves, but for me, it's the genuine home cooking my husband and I love.

Dino's in an unassuming, quite and somewhat out of the way eatery in Midtown Memphis. These factors only serve to add to the charm of this family owned Italian eatery. Let me warn you ... go HUNGRY! You will want one of everything on the menu. We had a shrimp Alfredo that was absolutely heaven on earth! I have never had a more luxurious, creamy handmade Alfredo in my life. We also had Eggplant Polenta Torta .. words cannot describe the lucsious Marinara which, of course, is made from scratch. The food was so divine. The Italian Salad that preceeded the meal was a meal within itself and delicious! We ordered 5 entrees so that we could bring several home. My only regret is that I was too full for the Tirimisu, which I hear is the stuff of legends. It is created fresh daily by the owner and chief food wizard at this amazing neighborhood Italian restaurant. If you are in Memphis I can only say three things ... GO .. GO... GO! You will not be disappointed!

I have been going to this place my whole life, and my family has been since before I was born. They have the best spinach ravioli ever, as well as the best lasagna. I love the meat sauce that comes with it, too. Even though I don't live in Memphis right now, my family still does, and I make it a point to visit Dino's every time I'm home. I also always take home some frozen ravioli and meat sauce to make at home when I'm feeling homesick. I love it! It's not Olive Garden or even close to any chain. It's my own little hole in the wall secret.
