This small gem of a restaurant had a menu loaded with great selections. The Spedinni was yummy as was the White Pizza. You could tell they used fresh ingredients. If I lived here I would certainly go back! Their pizza crust is yummy, the service was excellent and the food came in a timely manner served piping hot. Another culinary... More

It ain't pretty but the food at dinner-time is outstanding. At lunch, they sell slices to workers nearby; a bit like Sbarro's. But at dinner, Pino turns into super-chef and puts out some of the best Italian food in town. I eat here regularly and often spot local celebrities such as news anchors. It is a casual atmosphere but the... More

Pinos pizza Al Centro is a very special spot. The margherita pizza was very special and we are every bite there was to he had. The garden salad was very good as was the service and the ambiance. This chef /owner puts his heart and soul in this restaurant and it shows. Reasonably priced and surprisingly easy to dine here... More

This is hands down one of the best pizza places in the state of Arizona! Neapolitan/ NY style pizza. The Spaghetti with bolognese and the calzone are also stars. They make the best bread as well. Pino has passion with his food and it shows . I will be a long time customer to come. This is an old school... More

I was looking for a non chain, local place within walking distance of my hotel and stumbled on Pino's Pizza. It worked out perfectly! The staff was very friendly and told me to sit anywhere. The diners appeared to be mostly locals, a few "scrubs" from a hospital across the street-a good sign. I ordered the spaghetti & meatballs. The... More

After trying to go to a local Mexican place where the wait was more than an hour, our Hilton shuttle driver recommended this place, within walking distance from the Hilton. I was with 4 colleagues and we were initially nervous because it doesn't look like much from the outside. However, the food was terrific. I had the spaghetti capri, and... More

Tough to park, but worth it. I've rarely ever seen portions so large at a pizza-type restaurant. Calzones were monstrous as were the salads and pasta dishes. Most everybody in our party had to get a take-home box. Good service considering our party was around 20, the guy kept up on everything and even asked personally about the meals whether... More

Pino, the owner, is true blue Italian who visits Italy often to update his Italian culinary acumen. Pino's is a casual Italian place in Central Phoenix. In my opinion, he makes the best pizza in all of Phoenix. And it's made with love. The menu offers all kinds of Italian pasta dishes, including seafood dishes. I've taken numerous friends there...

Pino's is our go to restaurant. The service is always wonderful; one can tell the employees are happy to be there. Many are long time employees and they recognize repeat customers. The food is always excellent. There are several pizzas and pastas to choose from. It's mostly a pizza place but there are a few pasta and hot sandwich dishes.... More
