A perfect place for a gluten free pizza.

This family run restaurant is a favourite with the locals. Their anchovy and olive pizzas were very tasty and the friendly service is lovely. Ideal for all ages.

I just went here with my father for a quick lunch. The restaurant was empty due to it being mid week, however it was still a wonderful setup and the service was great! The pizza that we shared was truely devine, with a thin base, which had a delicious crunchy, puffy crust. Will definitely go here next time I come... More

We arrived at 8.30pm on a Friday night after going to the penguin parade over the Easter Long weekend. Place was winding right down. Pizza was surprisingly good. I presumed it would be average considering the overall appearance of the place so was pleasantly surprised.

We visited Pinos on the recommendation from the staff at the accommodation we were staying at. Fantastic pizza, fast and friendly service and good value. Will definitely visit again next time we visit Phillip Island.

We were there on a Wed evening before the penguin parade. Got a table outside facing the stage with a lady playing keyboard and vocal. Ordered a few pastas and a pizza to share - all were made fresh and served hot.

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.
