We received a lovely warm welcome from Annelise, and very knowledgeable and friendly service all night. Dinner was delicious, lasagne fantastic. Green veges 'Verdura' crisp and tasty. Tiramisu was light, not over sweet or too creamy. We loved it so much we came back for breakfast the next morning!

Although Pino passed away a few years ago his wife and family have carried on the true way of presenting a fantastic Italian meal, a honour to him. We eat there every time we're in Melbourne and it's well worth the drive to Phillip Is , The atmosphere, decor, service, meals are just A1, wherever i travel and eat Italian... More

Our family had a great meal here. The grilled calamari and Verdura (vegetables) that we had for entree was superb. Pizzas were delicious as was the gelato for dessert. Great service in this well run family business. Highly recommended.

I love pizza. Had many pizzas over the years, in Italy, melbourne, usa...heaps of places, but this was hand's down one of the best pizzas I've had. Handmade sauces, great toppings and the best base I've ever had.

We eat here every year when we’re over for World Superbikes. We arrived a few days earlier this year, and our first night in Cowes, Saturday, where else to eat but Pino’s? It was about 5.30pm and we decided to eat in. There were quite a few empty tables so the waitress said we could sit anywhere we liked. We... More

We travel over an hour to Cowes every fortnight just to have dinner at Pino's. It is the best food and quality service and kid friendly. My kids are fussy eaters but love all of the food on the Pino's menu. It is my no 1 eatery and would definitely recommend it to anyone!!!!

Pino's is a second home for us when we stay on the Island. It is a well established Italian restaurant whose quality of food is always of a high standard. The food choices are varied from pasta, pizza, seafood and even steak lovers would not be disappointed I must admit that our favorites are the home-made lasagna, pizza trattoria ,pasta... More
