Taste the finest Essex County has to offer.
Farm to table at its best in a relaxed pub atmosphere.
Located at 131 Elliott St W (formerly the Nesbitt Inn), Rino’s Kitchen is chef Rino Bortolin and his wife Anastasia Adams’ latest culinary project. The historic 100 year old house is a quaint comfortable setting to enjoy Rino’s freshly prepared menu. The pub offers a full menu focusing on local ingredients and supporting local growers whenever possible. Join us for lunch, dinner, a coffee or a pint. We offer a wide range of catering menus, both on and off site. Contact us with any questions or inquiries.
This beautiful century old house was one of the first houses in the neighbourhood when it was built back in 1915. It was, and remains, a cornerstone and gathering place in the Midtown neighbourhood.
Many of the original features remain with a working fireplace, original woodwork, and original stained glass windows (rumoured to have been designed by famed Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh).
These beautiful features create a quaint and comfortable atmosphere for dinner or simply a couple of drinks. During the summer months we feature a unique outdoor patio nestled in the backyard garden. The charm and vibe of the house helps inspire a sense of comfort and hospitality that we hope greets all our guests.
