This typical Piedmontese restaurant is at some 9,400 milometers from my residence. Unfortunately. But it is fully worth the trip (admitting though that it was not the ONLY reason for it). They are so strong in their antipasti, that keep coming to the table, in a crescendo of taste and within a beatitude of heavely quality, and so equally impressive... More

Good Italian cuisine, nice to sit and eat al fresco. Good service and good price for what we ate and drank. A little surprised at the high ratings its received, it was also recommended highly by a colleague. Maybe we just selected the wrong items on the menu or spoilt by other establishments that we go too. Will go back... More

Excellent service and lovely food. The staff were very welcoming... thankfully they had English menus and spoke English as our italian is not very good. We would definately recommend this place.

Fantastic Restaurant. Excellent anti pasti and Fiorentina Steak on the griddle that is to die for. The wine list matches the high standard of the food and booth are very much value for money. Matched by superb service. If you can find it do not miss out on it!

My friends and I had a celebratory final dinner at Pinin at the end of a golfing week. They were very accommodating and Davide, the owner, had no objection to us bringing our own Stilton and port (a tradition of our tour). We had a table inside the main restaurant but slightly away from the rest of the diners so... More

Restaurant Pinin is working from 1963 and the building is very well restored. It is very spacious and big restaurant; upstairs there are 140 seats and downstairs 230 seats so it is possible to organize happenings also for big groups, as weddings. Fireplaces give nice atmosphere. In addition in the summertime it is possible to eat outside in a beautiful... More
