This was one of only a few restaurants open on Mondays. Fortunately, they make very good food as well. Had the capriccioso pizza with olives, capers and anchovies. Delicious but not for those watching their sodium intake. The house salad was tasty with local, seasonal greens. The service was very attentive and friendly.

Don't be fooled by the rather austere view from the outside. Ladies, you need to change your sign... This is not just a pizza joint but a restaurant with superb Italian fare. We arrived with a hearty appetite after the hike to Cathedral Cove. The chicken fetuccine was the best my wife ever had and my lasagne was excellent. With... More

After such a bad experience at Salt Restaurant the night before our group decided to try something a little simpler and it was awesome, the staff were so helpful with such a large group in such a small restaurant & the pizza was devine!! My advise don't walk passed call in

We liked this place so much we ate there twice. The food is fresh, good quality, reasonably priced and the service was excellent. Their garlic bread is the best!!

I would not call myself a regular in Whitianga’s restaurant scene but to me this place has lost its allure. In the past I was contemplating popping into Dino’s at least twice on a long weekend. Brilliant pasta, good pizza and outstanding service…However this time I was disappointed. We visited as a party of 4 with 2 pasta dishes and... More

We dropped in at 8.50 but they still said they could make us dinner even though they were finishing up soon - we both had pasta and it was delicious and even had a small side salad on the plate which was a lovely tasty surprise Friendly staff and tasty food

Dino's serves mainly pizza and pasta. Both are perfectly adequate though service was rather slow. My husband's lasagne was also somewhat stodgy, while my pizza was perfectly adequate. OK for a change from the burgers and ribs.

Good little pizza place in town centre. Usual menu but ingredients tasted very fresh and they offer small pizzas! Decent wine and not expensive. Nice homemade tiramisu to finish. Good service (they were very busy because of inclement weather). Recommended.
