The food was excellent and tasty. The recommended prawn sparghetti was superb. The pizzas were nicely done and the kids voted with their mouths by finishing everything and ordered more!! We are a traveling group of 21 and i think everyone was well satisfied. The service was excellent and very friendly and the waiter throw in some magic tricks for... More

Don't recommend the prawn spaghetti, it tasted super strong fishy. They had whole prawns with heads on top which probably made it taste stronger. We all felt sick the next day. The panacotta was straight from sitting in the fridge all day. . The Pinot grigio was strong in flavour. The only good thing was the arancini balls, they were... More

Visited here for dinner with my family of 7. Ordered 2x Family size pizza. Serving was huge, pizza taste fresh, hand-scretched with fresh and generous ingredients. Price is reasonable and not expensive. Recommend to get big or family size as one is never enough.

After a very average meal at the pub we decided to have coffee and cakes at Pino's. The coffee was good my canolo was average. The food seemed quite good. We should have come here for lunch instead of the pub. The set up was very mess hall in appearance. Will try the full menu next time we go.

We had a great lunch at Pino's Trattoria while on holiday in Melbourne. We had lunch at Pino's on recommendation of Trip Advisor. Lunch was fantastic. Very good value. The pizzas were amazing. I recommend this establishment.

The service was the absolute high point of our visit to Pino's. Unfortunately we didn't get her name, but our waitress was young with long dark hair, and the service was top notch. The food was also very good, my husband had the carbonara (I had food envy it looked so good!) and I had spaghetti and meatballs. The food... More

We were in Australia in March and went to Phillip Island to see the Penguins on a bus tour. The tour stopped in Cowes and, in order to get to Phillip island on-time for the arrival of the Penguins, gave us 45 minutes for dinner. With this time constraint, it was essential that we got quick service. We were very... More
