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.

Had a really good quality meal in this restaurant and were so impressed that we returned for 'take away' pizza the following evening. On both occasions the food was really good and when we ate in the service from our waitress Emma was exceptional. If you are in Whitianga then a meal at Dino's is a must.

This is our third time to Dino's. We wandered around town with family but couldn't find anything appealing so we went back to our favourite. The pizza's were great, good amount of toppings and a cripsy base. We requested a gluten free base and that was no hassle at all. The menu has changed from what is online at the... More

We loved the pizza here... It's served on a really nice thin and crispy base. We would definitely go back if we are up this way again. Quick and friendly service too.

I tried to go to Dino's last week, but it was closed despite the sign on the door saying that lunch hours were 12-2 (I was there around 1). I called the number and the voicemail message said that they were open 7 days. I was looking forward to eating there, and just very disappointed that they were not open... More
