This was our third visit over the space of eight years and it is still a great place to eat. Service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious. The friendly waitress recommended great wine and food for a reasonable price.

Having read the reviews, we decided to give Pino's a try. My husband is always more concerned with the portion of food with restaurants but I must say Pino's trattoria did well with both the quality and quantity of the food. We had the osso bucco and a gnocchi with roasted pumpkin sauce. It was just sooo yum and satisfying.... More

Pino's is great, took a friend there recently who is allergic to garlic - they bent over backwards to ensure her meal was garlic free. Lots of choices on the menu & it all tastes wonderful.

Been to Pino's many times and the meals are always great and excellent value for money. It can get very busy but the staff work very hard to ensure that everyone get served quickly. Will always have a meal at Pino's when were on the Isalnd..

Fabulous authentic Italian food served with a smile. Racing memorabilia and great photos decorate the large but intimate restaurant.

If you go at 3pm, only pizzas are available :(. They're alright. The crusts were too thick for my liking. Otherwise service was decent and atmosphere was authentic enough.

Unfortunately at this time of year our trading changes to reflect the season of Phillip Island. Being open all day is what we do however we do have to limit what we have on offer to better manage our low & peak seasons which is common with the majority of restaurants here.
