This is the 2nd time I visited Pino's for dinner and I was a little disappointed because of the service. They ran out of the wine I was after, that was really annoying. And although they offered the same type of wine by the bottle only, she could have offered it by the glass but didn't, even though I asked.... More

We went on a very busy Sunday night (public holiday eve). We had to wait about 15 mins for a table that we were told there would be 2 high chairs for but alas we got none. This was not great with a 15 month old and a 10 month old. Our waitress was kind enough to find us a... More

Dine inside or outside and a delicious Italian cuisine with very welcoming Italian host. The veal was delicious and we each had a meal that delighted our palates. Most enjoyable.

Positives are they turn the tables over quick and get people through but it's very basic,average food. Not that cheap. We had a mix of pizza, pasta and calamari. Priority seems to be table turnover not the food. Extremely noisy as well, like a big cafeteria. Wouldn't go back.
