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..

We were taken here by friends and thoroughly enjoyed everything about this welcoming Italian Restaurant. The food was authentic and very delicious while the staff made our evening even better by attending to our every need. This is a must visit if you love Italian.

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.
