I ordered takeaway food through the deliveroo service and was so disappointed. The food was not particularly cheap, but unfortunately the real issue was that it was flavourless and cold when it arrived. The pizza was clearly cooked earlier than the pastas I had ordered, and so despite them being warm my pizza certainly wasn't.

I was at the opening of pinos nearly 40 years ago but they've lost me now. Visited several months ago and the food was not as great as usual but service still terrific. Tried again today. I should have realised something was up when I tried to phone to book only to find the number disconnected. Booked on the net.... More

Warm embrace of a down to earth homestyle italian coking. You have the traditional fare of food that doesn't pretend to follow the fad.

A wonderful pizza very well leavened and with real Italian taste ingredients. All the people are so nice and atmosphere is warm and welcoming as usually is an Italian restaurant in Italy. Very good choice of Italian wines and pasta is very well cooked. Strongly suggested

Pino's used to be a regrettably average Italian restaurant. However, after their revamp the food quality has improved exponentially. A very pleasant surprise. Definitely check this out if you're in Crows Nest, you'll get the best pasta in the area for sure!

We used to love Pino's for its traditional Italian food and wine and friendly service. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed when we visited over the weekend. The menu had changed and the food was flavourless and overpriced. While the service was very good, we will not be coming back anytime soon as it was a real disappointment. Pino's should go... More

Visited Pinos on a busy Saturday evening - ordered pizza and garlic bread however the pizza had next to no topping, was tasteless and cold. I can't comment on the garlic bread as it never arrived. Very poor service and staff seemed disinterested. Ashame given its past history as the Italian institution for Crows Nest. Value for money also poor.... More
