Description: Pino's Italian Restaurant is located in the vibrant heart of Crows Nest...
Pino's Italian Restaurant is located in the vibrant heart of Crows Nest. We aim at bringing our customers authentic, fresh Italian food. All our fresh meat and poultry is free-range and grain fed and from Australia. Our cold-cuts, sausages and aged meats are imported directly from Italy. Our fresh cheeses are all from Australia and our mature cheeses are imported directly from Italy. Our restaurant is full of atmosphere and our chefs can meet all your venue and menu requirements. Our seasonal menu changes every few months, so we can use the best of ingredients and have the best dishes for that season. It is based on our Sardinian roots with traditional dishes from this beautiful region which is an amazing natural and culinary part of Italy.

We weren't planning on ordering pizzas, however we had trouble finding anything else inspiring on the menu so ended up with pizzas. They were ok, but nothing exciting. My chicken and olive pizza was a little bland and could have done with some additional ingredients. The desserts were fairly... read more

We went for a dinner on wed night. Short tempered waitress. Asked for red house wine. They did not have it!? Instead recommended imported red wine from Italy. Obvious difference in price. Asked for beer - they ran out of two brands of Australian beer. Again, we were forced to buy imported Italian beer. To start we were offered complimentary... More

Having booked we arrived exactly on time. The first waiter could not find the booking but the second found it. Only half the group were seated and the waiter handed out menus to all present. Service was slow. We noted an adjacent table had been waiting for dessert for some considerable time so we decided not to have dessert. The... More

the Pizza is fabulous and the staff are very efficient. Wine list is great as well. Nice place for lunch or dinner and the food never disappoints. Did I say they have great pizza?

Oh well there's always a 1st time. - Menu didn't cater for everyone - Entree was oily / greasy - Main Meals were expensive and portions were more like a small entrée and expensive - Kids meals were well priced and ridiculously larger than our adult meals however the pizza was soggy and...

It's been a while since I've been there. It will be a lot longer before I return. The pizza was soggy and tasteless. Did I want to take the leftovers home? No thank you: they're left over for a reason - the food wasn't good enough to eat. My friend who is much less fussy than me was equally dissatisfied.... More

Went on a Friday night with a friend, had the Ragu pasta and it was delicious. Lovely fresh pasta and ingredients and a very homely, comfortable atmosphere. Although we didnt have kids with us, they seemed very accommodating of the kids around us.

Bad service expensive and poor quality food. Duck was tough, creme brûlée was cold. We were told the chef had left so bar staff had made the cheese platter and desert. Would not recommend.

Slow service, a long wait for meals, expensive and very disappointing dishes which had been described "upgraded" from the past. Pasta dishes undercooked, no flavour, no flair.
