Great family restaurant

Great little find in Cowes. Very popular and well cooked food at reasonable prices. Love the little touches here and one I loved is they do cappuccino with home made Biscotti. Too few restaurants do this these days and this gets a massive plus for me.. Very very good.

No better place for a family meal. Quality food and pizzas at fair prices and good service. House wine is also quite good.

Delicious food, full of flavoured authentic Italian cuisine. This place was recommended to us by a member of staff at the Penguin Parade Centre on Philip Island, so glad they recommended it, my dad loved the gamborini especially the chilli oil he could pour over it, our pizza were delicious and mums carbonara was lovely. Highly recommended family run business... More

My partner and I went to Pino's and boy were they busy! We couldn't get a table at the start which was totally fine told about 1/2 hour wait... We just had a few drinks at the bar, and probably only waited about 15mins before we got a table. Staff very friendly and prompt. Food was absolutely delicious, real Italian... More

Here we were in a smallish Victorian country town looking for a suitable restaurant. We saw Pino's Trattoria and decided to "give it a try". The atmosphere was excellent as was the food and the service. The décor was in accordance with traditional Italian restaurants. Parking was no problem. Pricing was most reasonable.

Went in as family of 4 (two tweenies), expecting marvellous fresh seafood, and wonderful traditional italian food, as was advised. Waiting only 15 mins for a table was a good start, and staff were friendly and efficient. However the menu was very limited (mostly pizza), with only a few other choices of mains (only one seafood), the atlantic salmon. We... More
