This place has the best Pizza"s in Victoria. The staff are cheerful and friendly and we didn't have to wait too long for our food even though they were busy...A good place to eat as a family or as a couple. Very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend.

I have eaten at Pino's many times and continue to go back time and time again. The pizzas are traditional Italian and in my opinion are the best on the Island.

Couldn't get a seat and was informed by waitress that there would be a 30 minute wait to be seated. She suggested we order take away and sit outside. Very disappointed as we sat waiting for our order and noticed all the queue of people seated and receiving their food before our take away order of pizza, lasagne and pasta... More

Fantastic food. Plenty of staff willing to work. A little noisy in the restaurant and sometimes you have to wait for a table. Cannot book in advance here. Do not have to wait too long for your meals
