Our family of six had a totally superb dinner at Pinoli. The gnocchi with sage was fantastic. Other gnocchi dishes were also great as were the risottos. Service was attentive and we had a great conversation with the owner. We highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a cozy and beautiful small restaurant, with an exclusive Italian menu. The chef obviously takes great pride in his creations. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients as you enjoy your dinner. Wine menu is noted to be carefully selected. Excellent choice!
