The Best Pizza in the World!!

We eat here every year when we’re over for World Superbikes. We arrived a few days earlier this year, and our first night in Cowes, Saturday, where else to eat but Pino’s? It was about 5.30pm and we decided to eat in. There were quite a few empty tables so the waitress said we could sit... read more

We travel over an hour to Cowes every fortnight just to have dinner at Pino's. It is the best food and quality service and kid friendly. My kids are fussy eaters but love all of the food on the Pino's menu. It is my no 1 eatery and would definitely recommend it to anyone!!!!

Pino's is a second home for us when we stay on the Island. It is a well established Italian restaurant whose quality of food is always of a high standard. The food choices are varied from pasta, pizza, seafood and even steak lovers would not be disappointed I must admit that our favorites are the home-made lasagna, pizza trattoria ,pasta... More

Been here twice as it was the only place left open after 8pm on a Sunday. It's a confusing establishment as there are about 4 counters you can order at, but if you want pizza you have to go to the pizza counter, which is down three flights of stairs from where we say in the beer garden. Why can't... More

This place has the best Pizza"s in Victoria. The staff are cheerful and friendly and we didn't have to wait too long for our food even though they were busy...A good place to eat as a family or as a couple. Very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend.

30 of us rocked up for dinner and couldn't book with a group that size... however, Pino's always have options for big groups and let you move the furniture around... we ended up using the takeaway menu and feeding everyone with great food in the beer garden and had a brilliant evening.... they are always friendly and accommodating and always...
