Great food made to order. Very personable staff. The ambiance inside the restaurant makes one feel you are in Italy.

There are only a few good restaurants in Secaucus and this is one of them. We were here the first night they opened and have been regular customers ever since. Very good food made with loving care by Pino. Small place with very few tables so you need to make a reservation in advance especially on the weekends. Homemade pasta... More

The food and atmosphere is terrific. It's just a small place and sometimes hard to book spur of the moment. If you can get in its well worth it. We live in town so it's always worth a try

Homemade pasta to order, the 3 ravioli's(spinich, cheese and lobster) with cheese, pesto and tomatoe sauce was excellent. Also had the chicken sorrentino, was great. Chicken was very tender. It is a wait but what do you expect for fresh homeade pasta made to order. I will be back.

Food here is ok - not great. It is a little expensive for a BYOB. The kitchen is child size, so each dinner takes forever to come out. If you go, plan on being there for a while. And if you are with a big party, you are there for hours.

We are from Maryland, in NJ/NY for the holidays. We found Trattoria da Pino on TripAdvisor. We dined there last night, a Sunday evening. The owner is the chef and prepares the food himself. Therefore, be prepared for a 2 + hour dinner. It was worth the wait. The lasagna special was our favorite! The owner's nephew was our waiter.... More

The food seemed all made from scratch, shrimp cocktail appetizer was delicious, especially the sauce, the mussels others ordered came in a plate of many, and the clams others... More

There are no words to describe the hospitality, food, service, and overall comfort of like being in your Nonna's house for Sunday dinner. The chef/owner Pino was amazing. He comes over to your table, asks what you would like to eat, prepares it all from scratch. We handed back the menus and said to him... Surprise us. Well, from the... More

My wife had a fabulous Osso Bucco , I ordered Linguini and Clam sauce . The menu clearly said "6 fresh clams" . I expected Red Sauce but it came with a watery white sauce and about 18 tiny sea clams . I asked Pino about the sauce and his response was defensive . I was very disappointed in our... More

The place is unassuming and it actually is very small but the ambience wasn't bad. I was greeted by a plate of Bruschetta and chose carbonara rigatoni which were great ! Maybe those were not made according to the original italian grandma recipe but nevertheless were very good and al dente. They do not serve alcool but there is a... More
