It is very rare not to be seated on arrival at this large family restaurant that caters for everyone. I have been here many times and never been disappointed with the fabulous food and service. Everyone at Pino's makes you feel like family and no request is a problem. Delicious food, great pizza and risottos.

We tried Pino's during a week end trip to Phillip Island. They really were very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pizza had a real Italian quality to it, especially the base. There was a great atmosphere. Definitely recommended during any stay on the Island.

Despite turning up late after the Penguin Parade we were still welcomed in. The kitchen was closed but pizzas were still available - which was exactly what we were after anyway. Staff were terrific and pizzas were divine.

Exactly what we were looking for....Pino's offered a nice variety of choices on its menu at affordable prices. We loved the mussels as an entree...the sauce was to die for! The pumpkin gnocchi and pizza customized for my husband's discriminating tastes was perfect. The young waitress was cheerful, accommodating and had a great sense of humor. The Shiraz on special...

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

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. Being a celiac, I really appreciate being able to enjoy their gluten free pizza. ( the only downside is the little extra cost for glutenfree) but apart from that, I would definately... 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.
