“First Visit - But Not Our Last.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

There was a birthday in the family recently, & it was decided to opt for a restaurant that was positioned vaguely in the centre from where we all live. It happened to be Lechlade, & one of our number suggested Pinos, an Italian place. Good shout. It sits in the centre of Lechlade, & isn't hard to find, Lechlade being a fairly small town. Parking is quite easy, especially if you know to drive into their little car-park via their archway off the square. Pinos was once a pub, we're told, but we couldn't recall its previous name. Its now a longish eatery, neat & stylish, but not intimidating. Our party comprised 8 adults & our great-nephew, who's 18 months old. The waiters treated him very well, & his behaviour was great, despite one or two disparaging looks from a grumpy bloke nearby. My wife had Mushroom Risotto, & my choice was bowl of pasta with a lamb ragu sauce. Others had Pizza, pasta or other dishes according to whim. Some managed dessert, & pronounced it good. We stuck to Nastro Azurro beer, coffee or water, as no-one wanted wine. Well, four of us were driving, after all. Service was fast & friendly, & nobody went away half-full. The loos were nice & clean, & the whole place was efficiently run. In summer, one could go outside, as there were seats in the yard. All it would need is some sunshine & a fairly big grape-vine, & with a bit of squinting one might be in Italy......
The bill came to around £250 for eight-and-a-half of us, so about average, these days. We'll doubtless convene there again when another birthday rolls around.

“Delicious food ! Massive portions ! Classy romantic surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

One of my favourite meals ever ! I had almond crusted sea bass, there was so much fish I struggled to finish. My partner had the 28 day aged rib eye steak and it was so big he actually got bored of eating meat haha. Waiters were very attentive and the setting was lovely. It is perfect for a romantic meal, but there was also a family with a little boy at one of the other tables and the waiters made a fuss of the little one. Can't go wrong really :-)

“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Living in Lechlade it is easy to overlook the local amenities. Pinos has proved to be an absolute gem. The staff are very attentive without being intrusive, The food is well prepared,presented and delicious. The portions are substantial, so if you err on the lighter side of eating, don't try to attempt more than two courses! The wine is excellent and not overpriced.
