Looking for meal before penguins. This place has heaps of room - inside and out. We had a balmy night and the outside service was great from cheerful staff. usual menu, with good quality food and reasonable prices. Ideal for a casual eating experience.

3 of us enjoyed a lovely dinner before the Penguin Parade. Not busy for our visit and coincidentally the service was prompt and pleasant. Pizza was quite tasty and the large was more than enough for one 30 year old male. The lasagna was the best the girlfriend has ever had and the atmosphere was cool with all the motor... More

This place was packed to the gunnels last night. There were some great points, and no 'real' disappointments, just a few areas that could be improved. Despite us having no reservation and it being the busiest night of the V8 Supercars weekend we were seated very quickly. The place is decked out in Moto GP memorabilia which makes for a... More

Eating at Pino's Trattoria was a highlight of the Phillip Island Moto GP weekend. How the staff cope with the crowds is amazing and the quality of food and genuine friendly and attentive staff made our visits memorable. And bumping in to Moto GP teams & stars is an added benefit!

I've been meaning to write a review for Pino's for a long time - as it does deserve one. My latest visit was for my birthday which fell on MotoGP Thursday. A somewhat busy night for Pino's (other restaurants on the island would not be able to cater to such crowds) - at a guess there were 20 tables of... More
