This place was buzzing for a cold night in July! Service was quick and efficient, the Calimari was cooked to perfection. My wife had two entrees and I had a main. Both arrived quickly and were delicious. One glass of wine from the per glass menu was all we needed. Staff were happy and attentive. Considering many places on the... More

After wandering around downtown Cowes looking at various restaurants, we selected Pino"s Trattoria as their menu had the sort of thing we were looking for. It is a reasonably large restaurant with nice seating areas inside. The night we were there it was quite busy, filling up quickly. We had spaghetti and meatballs, an olive starter, and some wine and... More

I went to Pino's for lunch on a Sunday. It's a rather large, open restaurant but they have broken it up into different sections so that it is not too barn-like. I ordered the prawn spaghetti and my wife the pumpkin home made gnocchi. Both were very good sizes and very tasty. It wasn't anything super special, but exactly what... More

This place is a great choice when you're undecided about where to eat in Cowes and want great food at a reasonable price. It was our third visit in 6 years but after a long interval. Our positive memories were borne out again by a great authentic food experience. On a winter midweek night we enjoyed what I would call... More

This is a large place, probably prices reflect the food. We bought the carafe of house white which I would never do again, it was terrible, actually couldn't drink it. Food was ok, probably do great pizza and pasta so if you stick to that style you would be happy. Didn't love it will give it another go, may have... More

I'm sorry to hear that your wine was undrinkable. There is a little history in our house wine by the carafe. It was on our original wine menu 24 years ago and even though we have tried to get rid of them as we serve some amazing local and imported wines on our wine list, the locals still love it,... More

My husband and I came to pino's after visiting the penguin parade so it was kind of late. We were welcomed straight in and the waitress was fantastic. She was friendly and helpful.

The take away pizza was pretty good. Nice bases and simple toppings. Especially liked the meat lovers. I would go back again.
