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

I have been going to this restaurant for 35 years. I used to know Pino himself, before he passed some 4 years ago. The chef, George used to come to our table. The restaurant was always reliably 'good fare' Italian. Nothing pretentious, but with a bottle of red, I used to proclaim Pinos' pizza as the best in Australia! I... More

Very cute settings and very nice customer service. For the rest nothing wow. Antipasto was ok, we shared a platter of affettati and cheses, but they could have added some more bread/focaccia. The pizza with melanzane (eggplant) was nice, but not enough melanzane (few bits and pieces, while in Italy you normally have few full slices) and no much mozzarella.... More

This place serves good Italian food. The patio is always busy and inside is cozy but a bit loud. Food reasonably priced and wait staff quite friendly
