Excellente !!!!!

There are no words to describe the hospitality, food, service, and overall comfort of like being in your Nonna's house for Sunday dinner. The chef/owner Pino was amazing.

My wife had a fabulous Osso Bucco , I ordered Linguini and Clam sauce . The menu clearly said "6 fresh clams" . I expected Red Sauce but it came with a watery white sauce and about 18 tiny sea clams . I asked Pino about the sauce and his response was defensive . I was very disappointed in our... More

The place is unassuming and it actually is very small but the ambience wasn't bad. I was greeted by a plate of Bruschetta and chose carbonara rigatoni which were great ! Maybe those were not made according to the original italian grandma recipe but nevertheless were very good and al dente. They do not serve alcool but there is a... More

We decided to try this restaurant because it was close to the hotel. What a find!! The place is very small but the staff is very friendly and can't do enough for you. We were told there is no liquor but we could go next door and buy beer or wine and bring it in. That didn't matter to us... More

We are here because of the great reviews. I love Italian food, especially homemade pasta. It is a little hole in the wall place, but even with only a few other tables of people it was deafeningly loud. My father had to put earplugs in. Everyone's voices just reverberate against the walls. You had to shout to hear each other... More

Great Italian food in an eclectic, fun setting. Owner decorated the place and it is a sight to behold (including the dolphins swimming on the ceiling. Pasta to die for. Warmest serving staff ever. BYOWine (you can buy a bottle down the street). We had a wonderful meal and a wonderful time here.

We accidentally found this place and I am absolutely glad we did!! The food was absolutely delicious!! The linguini and clams are so amazingly good, as was my chicken. The service is wonderful! Friendly and welcoming hostess /waitress. We were already happy with our dinner but the cannoli put this place over the top! I can't even describe it, so... More

I've been eating at Pino's for years now and am never disappointed. This is authentic, Italian cooking with friendly service in an intimate space.

If you've never had -- or even heard of -- Osso Buco, you can have the culinary experience of your life at this wonderful place. Pino prepares the food only after you've ordered it... nothing sits and waits. I had Osso Buco, pork on the bone that falls off when it sees your fork coming. And OMG -- DELICIOUS! Regina... More
