Ask for the black label pizza list

Reliable venue over many years for mix of pizza and pasta dishes. Black label pizzas are good - try the "Toxic Waste"

As everyone seems to be saying, it was always so good in the past. First time I've ever had antipasto with only meat and bread. I was trying to convince myself this was authentic Italian. The mains were pricy small and rather ordinary. Get yourselves a new chef or get the boss to pull his finger out. Service was ok.... More

We went to Pino's as a last resort on a Sunday night because most other places were closed. We saw that the menu had completely changed from when we were last there. There was nothing appealing about the menu. When we asked the waiter if they did anything simple like spag bol, the answer was no. We ordered some food... More

We made a group booking and were 4 adults and five12 year old boys. The service was very slow and disorganised. We arrived at 7pm. Our meals arrived at various times so we couldn't eat together, with 2 boys finally getting their pizzas at 8.40pm. The staff were apologetic but it was just chaos all night. The wines were nice...

Like previous reviewers, I struggle to understand what has happened to such a popular Italian place in Crows Nest. This used to be one of my favourite places to frequent. This evening we were surprised by a menu change. The staff informed us that this occurred 6 months ago. Meals are much smaller in size yet more expensive - almost... More

Our not so good experienced started with the hand soap in toilet smelling bad - I think someone had used a detergent of some sort instead of soap....

I have been going to Pinos for years and have loved it. The food was tasty and what I consider to be home style Italian. I went on Friday night for dinner and I certainly won't be going back again....and I'll be telling my friends not to bother either! The menus has recently changed and so has the chef I... More

Its unfortunate that such an old establishment is now serving mediocre food. The papardelle i had was tasteless obviously rewarmed in a microwave with a bland meaty pieces and creamy sauce. The garlic and cheese pizza that arrived as starter was just ok. Sweets were strange specially the tramisu had nothing to do with the tramisu that we all know.

Been coming here for 30 years but recently there has been a menu change. We ordered prawns as an entre, two very small half shelled prawns in a tasteless mix came out. Honestly the prawns had no taste or texture. possibly frozen and the price for this small dish $ 19.00. That's $ 38.00 for 4 small prawns! When I... More

We have been going to Pino's since it opened in 1973 for all sorts of reasons from a quick meal after work, family outing, takeaway pizza to Corporate dinners. Their menu was extensive, typical Italian, the service dependable, the food was tasty, generous, covered the tastes of three generations and a visit was value for money. Something has changed as...
