I had the eggplant parm. It was absolutely delicious, crispy and flavorful. I loved it. We sat at the chef’s table and was treated to crostini with crema and arugula. Delicious and thankful. My husband had chicken parm, very moist and yummy. We shared the strawberry limoncello cheesecake. Fantastic! Never disappointed at Pino. Mary, our waitress, took great care of us. We enjoy sitting at the chef’s table and watching the kitchen activity. THEY ALL WORK HARD. Thanks again for a GREAT dinner at Pino!

We went for the Culinary Tour of Italy. This month was Lazio. We opted to add the wine pairings on.

They allow no substitutions, which in general I understand, but my sister has a food allergy so it would have been nice if they would have accommodated that by switching/substituting one thing, especially since they were not busy.

First course was ok, except it said it came with "Grilled Artichokes". It came with one half of an artichoke heart, that was NOT grilled, and obviously came from a jar. There was one small piece of mortadella.

Second course was basically fried arancini. Per the description, it was to be stuffed with cheese that would strand out. It certainly did not. It was not cheesy at all. No glorious stands made an appearance.

Main course of carbonaro was extremely bland. Mostly overcooked spaghetti, with a few tiny scraps of prosciutto. Terrible. For the price paid they could have given a lot more prosciutto and maybe that along with pepper would have helped. MAYBE.

Dessert was ok if you like chocolate fruitcake. Think they could've done something a lot better than hard cake.

The wine was ok except the barbaresco was terrible.

The courses came out really close together, so we were still eating one when the other came out. The place was not busy so the timing should have been better. If the food had been good we would have been rushed through an expensive dining experience.

The food WAS nicely presented but that's among the only good things I can say about it.

We were not asked if we wanted to earn rewards points on the meal so did not give the card upon paying, but asked right after and were told that everything had been closed out and there's nothing they can do. Literally five minutes after we paid. No one at Pino Bianco or the Rewards desk would help. NOBODY could manually add on credit? Bull. Terrible customer service.

Save your $200- take it anywhere else and get a better meal and hopefully better customer service. Total rip-off.

We were seated within 2 minutes of on-time arrival. Warm Italian bread with a spicy butter and garlic spread and water arrived within a couple minutes. Drink, salad and dinner orders were received in a timely manner. My wife's Chicken Francese was okay. There was a lack of sauce and it was thin. My Chicken Marsala was good; I would have it again. All of the staff was courteous and our waitress, Kelly, was pleasant.

My wife’s birthday was on 9/14/21 and we had her birthday dinner at Pino Turning Stone. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The staff personnel we encountered were excellent.
The food was very delicious and the presentation was outstanding . We look forward to our next visit to Turning Stone and Pino Bianco.

I had the sea bass, it was excellent!! Also got the clams for an app…they were delicious! Added the Utica Greens, they were good, but had WAY too much breadcrumb on top. That was my only complaint.

We were seated at the chefs table, an interesting experience. Our waiter, Brian, was great. We spent a decent amount of time observing. While things seemed to run smoothly, it is clear as in most business some work much harder than others. One standout employee was Virginia. Man does she hustle! She is so sweet as we engaged her in conversation. We told her how hard we saw her working and she mentioned she was 69! I couldn’t believe it, she was seemingly working at twice the pace of younger employees. She is a gem. I hope she is recognized for her efforts.

We had a lovely booth and Jessica did a wonderful job as our server. Now we can add to to the list with Brian and Kelly! We are always so well cared for at this restaurant! My husband got the lasagna and it was not hot. It was immediately corrected and Todd, the manager, came over to make sure everything was satisfactory. It was. The food is delicious and the price are so very reasonable for the quality and service! We’re going back on the 3rd! Can’t wait!

Your waitstaff was really great, but your hostess seemed overworked, and was very curt in her demeanor and interactions. We were turned away when we arrived 20 minutes early (that’s fine), but then waited 10 minutes at the podium waiting for someone to seat us AFTER receiving the text that our table was ready.

Service, ONCE IN THE RESTAURANT, is amazing , we've been several times and service is always great, Chris was our server this visit and is wonderful. The front door staff desperately needs training and management. We arrived 20 minutes early for a 5:30 reservation and they made us stand there for 10 minutes because "the 5:00 and 5:15 reservations need to be seated first " What ?? They open at 4 , there is no way any guests sat at the table assigned to us prior to us, why make us stand there and wait ? While waiting, I ventured in the restaurant, saw many empty tables , once they "approved" us to sit, we were taken to a table that had been available the entire time they made us stand outside. We come often , we love the food however the last few times , actually getting to the table for our reservation is frustrating. Hospitality at the front door is lacking.
