What more can I say, I love this place. (5 of 5 stars May 13, 2012; Yelp) As many have said in other reviews, be prepared to take your time. If I have 2 hours to spend enjoying myself, relaxing this is where I usually end up. The owner Dino will most likely come over to greet you with open arms, a bottle of wine, & a big smile. I always make it a point to say hello to the cook (Dino's wife), & see what she has going on in the kitchen. We will move around freely in the restaurant at times, sometimes sitting on the sofa, maybe outside for a bit to enjoy the weather if it is nice, or at our table. There is no rush, the wine is always nearby, the appetizers are delicious as well as interesting, & there is never a dull moment with Dino around. What more can I say, I love this place. Who wouldn't?!
Hard to compare! (January 2012; Facebook) Food was amazing, service was wonderful. Highly recommend for a romantic date, small party. A real Italian experience.

Fabulous attention to detail (5 of 5 stars April 20, 2011; TripAdvisor)
Pre dinner for 5 relay runners upon a speedy mission to Coos Bay. Dino made up a table for us w/out a reservation upon a busy Friday night. Treated by him, Paulina and family like the only ones present. Fabulous cuisine by his wife, i have traveled in Europe, and I know. Only place to go in Roseburg OR.
The taste of Italy without the airfare! (5 of 5 stars Jan. 16, 2011; TripAdvisor)
What good fortune we had to stop in Roseburg tonight! We had a wonderful meal at Dino's Restaurant. From the first moment of entering the restaurant, we knew we were somewhere special. The ambience is perfectly natural Italian. Our meals were divine: from the Spinachi Lemone & Chitarra Al Abruzzese to the Insalata Calbrese & Lobster Ravioli coupled with perfect wines, we could not have been more pleased with our meals. We've been to Italy many times and often lament on how difficult it is to find an authentic Italian meal in North America: but here it is! At Dino's the portions are generous so it would be possible to have a filling, satisfying meal by ordering only the main course, although I would have hated to miss my appetizer. We left wondering whether the local Roseburg citizens fully appreciate how rare is the wonderful Italian restaurant they have right here, any time they choose. We'll have to plan to stop in Roseburg in future just so we can have another meal at Dino's!
Excellent Authentic Italian (5 of 5 stars Sept. 17, 2010; TripAdvisor)
Probably one of the best Italian Restaurants I've been in since I returned from Europe. I've been twice, both times the food was excellent. First time Linguini Vongole, and second time Veal Picata. Both were excellent. Far and away the best food in Roseburg.
"Dino's was one of several restaurants to us by the Roseburg Visitor's Center when we were travelling through recently. The food was excellent and the restaurant has a lovely "family" feel to it. Nicely decorated and very welcoming. Everything was delicious! ..."
