    Three quarters of entree could not be eaten at the time. but was not offered to take with us. Busboy just came along and piled table garbage on plate and took away. Wasn't even offered doggie bag. Thought that was very strange. Considering the veal parm was $30 and huge, we couldn't take it home.

    I ordered the Arugula salad with oil and vinegar as the only dressing. I was served an Arugula salad, loaded with vinegar and was told the oil was on the table. I like my salad with oil and just a touch of vinegar. It was disappointing, but since the original salad came with walnuts, that I had requested not to have, I ate the second one I got. Maybe it was my misunderstanding, but I think when you order a salad with oil and vinegar, you should be given the salad with nothing and then given the oil and vinegar to dress the salad the way you want it.

    THE $43.00 SEAFODD DISH WAS EXCELLENT. VEAL SHANK WAS WARM NOT HOT. THE CAPUCINOS WERE TOO LARGE AND A BIT BLAND. WE DID MAKE RESERVATION FOR THE NEXT NIGHT (MY BIRTHDAY) AND CANCELED RESERVATIONS WITH ANOTHER VENUE. MY WIFE HAD THE SPECIAL SHRIMP, SCALLOPS AND RISOTO. THE SRIIMP AND SCALLOPS WERE EXCELENT BUT THE RISOTO WAS A BIT ON THE CHEWY SIDE. NICE FLAVOR BUT A BIT UNDER COOKED FOR OUR TASTE. I HAD THE VEAL SHANK THAT MY WIFE HAD THE NIGHT BEFORE. MY WIFE BROUGHT THE FACT THAT THE VEAL WAS WARM THE NIGHT BEFORE AND BE SURE IT WAS HOT FOR MY HUSBAND. IT WAS EXCELLENT. $13.00 FOR A GREY GOOSE MARTINI WAS A BIT PRICEY BUT,IT WAS A GENEROUSE SIZE DRINK. ALL IN ALL OUR TWO NIGHTS OF DINNING WAS ON THE HIGHER SIDE OF GOOD.

    What makes this bad review sad is that my husband and i were away celebrating our marriage from this past Friday.on the way home from canada, we stopped to spend a night, I have never been to turning stone so it sounded good. We found your restaurant on the website and thought awesome, a cute little Italian place. We waited almost an hour for our food (mind you, reservation was 9:45pm) our water cups were left dry. Our waitress was MIA most of the time. When she did come to our table to take our plates she remained silent and walked away. Never offered us dessert we were going to get but we lost her for another 20 minutes. Couldn't get our check To what was supposed to be a romantic dinner with my new husband turned into a nightmare

    We arrived 15 minutes earlier than our reservation time but the hostess kindly seated us right away. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. I asked her which of two dishes that I narrowed my choices down to (not an easy task they have a great menu) would she recommend. She suggest one as long as I liked a little spice. It was delicious. My husband enjoyed his dish as well. The chef delivered a complimentary bruschetta which was yummy. Thanks for making our meal a wonderful memory!

    Apparently this place never heard of garlic or seasoning. Seriously bland and boring food, best I can say is, there was plenty of it. But I've had better Italian food from a can! In a hospital! On an airplane! Worst Italian dinner I've ever been served and seriously overpriced.

    My husband and I went to Pino Bianco to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and we were so glad that we did! The servers were attentive and welcoming, and the food was delicious! We were going to each order a Caesar salad, but our server suggested we share one- and she was right! They even split the salad into two bowls for us so we didn't have to worry about it, which was extremely helpful. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan, and my husband ordered the Lasagna. My chicken was almost the size of my entire plate! I couldn't eat the whole thing, but I sure wanted to! My husband loved his lasagna as well. After dinner, the server surprised us with a chocolate dessert- the plate even had "Happy Anniversary" on it! We'll be back!

    I'm glad we had a chance to eat at this fine restaurant. The appetizer of the fried calamari was done perfectly. I ordered the veal piccata and that too was delicious and tender. My husband had the shrimp scampi and the shrimp were huge and cooked perfect. It was not over whelmed by garlic and butter, but very flavorful. Dessert was extraordinary. I had a creme brule that came with cranberry almond biscotti; My husband had a banana rum cake. Both out of this world! I only wish we could have met our Chef Carmine. We are huge fans of his. If we return to Turning Stone, we will visit this fine restaurant again.

    This was our first time eating at The Pino Bianco and it will definitely not be our last! I had Haddock Francaise which was outstanding and my husband had the Chicken Francaise which was also fabulous. The marinara sauce on my pasta was delicious and the Caesar Salad was fantastic. We were seated in a romantic booth which brought me back to the old Italian restaurants in New York City. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is willing to pay a little more for a high quality dinner.

    My boyfriend and I dined here on 07/08/14. We have had dinner at this location before the remodel and we loved it then, and we still do. I really enjoyed the new décor and I loved that we had the open curved booth. Very romantic in an "old school" way. The only thing missing was Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci (wink). The food was just as great as it was last time we were there. I had a pasta dish and he had the lasagna. Due to a current medical issue, I can not have certain foods. When I explained this to our waitress, and asked to have an item altered on the menu, she was more than understanding and let me know that it wouldn't be a problem to accommodate me. We both look forward to our next dinner at Pino Bianco!

    Meatballs were very tender, moist, nice flavor. Husband loved chicken riggies, tender, moist chicken, gave it a 4 out of 5, I thought the eggplant was average, had to search for the riccotta and spinach, tasted more of the batter coating than eggplant, it was tender. Staff was very friendly, helpful, and attentive, enjoyed the wine.

    Fabulous dinner! the night we came to Pino Bianco there was an event at TS so you had a condensed theatre menu. I had my heart set on eating Ossobuco but did not see it on the menu. I asked our waitress if it was possible to have the Ossobuco and after checking with the chef, she said that it was possible but that it would take a little longer to prepare, which was fine with me. I was extremely happy with my dinner! It was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully!! It was worth waiting for!! My husband ordered the lasagna and was also very happy with his dinner!! We will definitely dine at Pino Bianco again in the near future!!

    first, they had no record of our reservation. I had printed a confirmation. after eating tasteless bread and oil I ordered a second glass of wine. my glass was soiled from handling the bread. the waiter brought a small carafe and poured the wine into my dirty glass. Second, to put it bluntly the food is not mad fresh. and if it is they better hire a new chef. if I wanted frozen food I could have gotton it much cheaper at bj's. sorry but I won't recommend this place to any one. I do have to say the waiter was great and im sure he was told if he dirty's to many glasses, he has to wash them..

    My wife and I have been here many times, and recently went for our 11th wedding anniversary. It is a favorite restaurant of ours, and every time we go we are never disappointed. I can't compliment the service enough. Simply fabulous! I only gave the food 4 stars because I had my heart set on Veal Ossobuco, but when I ordered it I was told that it would not be ready until after 7 pm (our dinner reservation was at 6 pm). However, the waitress suggested Veal Francese (which was NOT on the menu) as a substitute. I gladly took her up on the offer and enjoyed it immensely. I would highly recommend Pino to anyone and everyone that wants outstanding Italian cuisine.

    This is our fourth or fifth dining experience at Pino and it was wonderful! Food delicious, excellent wine, staff extraordinary, just lovely surroundings! Each time we visit we try a different entrée and we are never disappointed with taste, portion size, authenticity, etc. We don't visit Turning Stone Resort to gamble, golf or enjoy entertainment. We just go to the resort to eat at the wonderful restaurants within the resort complex. So far, Pino is our very favorite place. DON'T CHANGE A THING FOR US!!!!
