A few years ago we really enjoyed family outings to Pino's but it seems to have gone downhill somewhat. Food is still ok but there is arguably better at local competition. Service lacklustre.

We were looking for a little restaurant in Sydney around the Crows nest area. Not many to be found open on a Sunday night. We "LUCKED" upon this gem. We were made welcome. The food was absolutely beautiful. If we weren't heading to central NSW in the morning then we would have come back on the Monday night (not too... More

Ate there with another couple and the price was very reasonable. Had a selection of pastas and pizzas which we all shared. The food just managed to satisfy our hunger. we sat outside on a chilly night and the only down side was the staff member looking after us seemed to forget we were there after she delivered the drinks....

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!
