Fantastic food and service. I managed to indulge myself with the veal, and it was prepared to perfection. This restaurant gets very busy during MotoGP weekend, and you may spot a star or two dining here. Plenty of motorcycling memorabilia adorns the walls, including sets of leathers.

This is a large restaurant in the Main Street of cowed on Phillip island. They offer a wide range of pizzas and pastas with a few specialists dishes and some nightly specials. I have always found the staff to be pleasant, efficient and keen to please. The food, whilst not gourmet, is always good. I can recommend it to families.

We stopped in at Pino's after the Penguin Parade. We definitely needed something warming as it had been freezing at the Parade. We were not disappointed with Pino's. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was quick and friendly. I would not hesitate to go back next time we are in Phillip Island.

I reviewed this restaurant about 10 months ago and raved about the Veal Saltimbocca. I have been several times since but have not had the Veal Saltimbocca again until last Thursday. I was sooooo disappointed - instead of juicy veal wrapped in caramelised prosciutto on fresh mashed potato with a delicious sauce as previously served - I received chewy veal... More
