“WHAT A MEAL!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I were in the area visiting, and we relied on tripadvisor for our dinner. This place was exactly how others reviewed; good home cooked meal, real Italian not Americanized. Pino thank you for the amazing pasta dishes. They don't have a liquor lic. But you can bring your own!!! Worth the wait for your meal, don't be put off by the outside. The servers were very warm and explained the menu well.

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

This was by far one of the best restaurants with the best service and food I've had in a long time.

After a long day in NYC, I googled to find a good restaurant in Secaucus, New Jersey [where we were staying] and this restaurant came up. The restaurant closed at 10:30 PM and it was 9:15 PM - we jumped in the car after deciding it was worth a shot, we arrived at 9:45 PM and were treated to an amazing meal, great service and plenty of leftovers for the next day!

The portions were huge and nearly everything was homemade! Simply amazing!

It was our first time visiting New York and stayed in NJ and stumbled led across Pino's...Amazing food, great service perfect atmosphere oh and did I mention AMAZING FOOD!! We still dream of the rice balls and pork chops with marinara sauce....and now I'm drooling again! It will be our first stop the next time we're in the area.

“What a great spot for a gathering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We hosted a small retirement party as well as a Christmas gathering with friends.
On both occasions we were truly satisfied with the meal provided as well as the atmosphere.
It was like hosting a party at home with the addition of an excellent chef and staff.
We were served a number of excellent appetizers prior to the main courses.
Some of our guests were surprised that more food was coming after the appetizers.
The meal was not rushed and we were able to enjoy the moment and not feel pressured to leave
I would highly recommend if you want to slow down and enjoy a wonderful meal in a no pressure atmosphere.
It is BYOB so you can enjoy your personal wine selection

“Tiny, intimate, you felt like part of the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

A friend chose this restaurant off of Trip advisor, it was probably one of the best dinners, environment and fun we could have ever chosen. The Server described the lengthy list of specials so well, we felt like we had gained 10 pounds just from listening to her, home made pasta, amazing food all the way around, cute and quirky. can only seat 30 people, so make a reservation, BYOB which is always nice on the wallet but they easily shared Sambuca on the house with espresso and coffee after dinner. This place shows the best of NJ. We had a reunion of 6 friends who hadn't seen each other in a very long time, the folks here made it a night to remember - Don't miss this place!
