Great food and service. We don't go here often because of the distance from our home but we like to go for special occasions.
An excellent Italian restaurant, serving good bread, fine wine and great main dishes. The "Utica Greens" were authentic, and calamari made for great appetizers. I had the pasta putanesca style with shrimp; which was very good. The other dishes were chicken riggiees, spaghetti, and scallops. Each dish was very good. Our rum cake dessert needed work, as I tasted no rum.
I n summary, a great place to go in central New York.
Never had a bad mealtime
We love Pino Bianco, one of the best Italian Restaurants in New York State. Food is absolutely delicious and service is excellent. Chef is very Attentive as well. Had table facing kitchen and it was fun just to watch how much detail goes in to preparing each scrumptious dish.
This was our 1st time at this restaurant and it was a great experience. The menu was expansive. The service was impeccable. The ambiance was quaint and inviting. The only criticism was that the size of the meals was huge. 1 meal easily makes 3 servings. We plan to return there our next trip back.
The menu has changed and I do not particularly like it. I would always order the mixed seafood but that has changed. The last time I had it they used salmon as opposed to sea bass.
I would Never eat salmon in a red sauce!
Scrapenellia needs to be brought back.
THe anti pasta needs to be revisited.
Hope some things will be brought back. Look forward to a return with better selections.
I ordered shrimp riggies but chicken riggies . The riggies were good but not what I ordered.
Our waiter, Herb was excellent! The food & atmosphere were wonderful as well!
The meal and service is always great here. It is our go to restaurant. Great food, great value.
Waitress was excellent attentive.Food was good,one of us did not care for the special they had that night and gave us something else.Manager came over and apologized which he did not have to.
Good food especially the meatball appetizer and soup.
Food selection was great along with excellent service.
My wife ordered the shrimp alfredo which was not on the menu, but was absolutely delicious. I ordered the lasagna which was awful. I’m not even sure it was lasagna. It was a bowl of cheese and sauce with no signs of noodles. The waitress took it off the bill without hesitation once she saw my lasagna. Ambiance is great, waitress great as well, just wish the food or should I say my food was as good as my wife’s. Prices high... not an everyday place to go. Good for special occasions. I wouldn’t recommend the lasagna!
Absolutely horrible food. The service was great but the food was horrendous from the salad to the appetizer to the entree none of it was enjoyable. And it was really depressing because it was our Valentine's dinner!!
Service was very poor, food was bad. Had haddock francaise the sauces looked like gravy from the can. The tomatoes sauce was equally as bad. The coors light in the bottle was good. Will not ever return
Four of us ate dinner here. Everything was delicious. Appetizers, main entrees, desserts, the whole meal was delectable. Filet was perfect, chicken riggies were very tasty. Would definitely return.
The past two times we have come to Pino Bianco we have had a terrible experience. In may, we came for my birthday and received very poor service. We were there for almost 30 minutes before a server came over. Last night, we tried it again because we have in the past had great meals. The meals were not the same at they used to be. I got the filet and my potatoes came whole instead of cut in half, which resulted in then not being cooked through and very hard to cut open. The steak was ok. The filet at Pino Bianco used to be on par with the steakhouse and that is no longer the case. The service was ok this time but not what we are used to from TS steakhouse. I suppose you get what you pay for. I don’t think we’ll be trying here again.
Went for a Valentine's dinner. Everything was amazing. Food and service were outstanding. Great job to everyone!
Our meal was great. Well prepared swordfish
Our waitress was very professional and personal. She did a great job.
Outstanding food & service... always a good time... and NO issues...
The food, service and ambiance was phenomenal. It was my first time there and enjoyed dinner with my mom and Godmother. All 3 of us were happy with our meals.
Enjoyed our meal. Would have loved to substitute the potatoes that came with my entree (noticed that mashed potatoes were offered on the special valentines menu) but when I asked if I could substitute I was told they couldn’t.. that those were only for that special and they didn’t want to run out.... really? No way to replenish a couple of potatoes? None anywhere else in your facility???
Perfect, or as close as you can get.
Food was delicious
Recommend the antipasto
My scallops we perfectly cooked
Service was excellent
Everything was great from the minute we were greeted at the door, until we paid the bill. The atmosphere is 'old school Italian' with red and white checkered table cloths. It was quiet in that you could actually have a conversation without raising your voice to be heard. The wine, while a bit pricey was very good and the meal was delicious. I would definitely go back again.
We sat by the kitchen. It was so loud we couldn't have a conversation. Listening to the cooks gripe was horrible on top of waiting for an hour for our dinner. When it came it was horrible. The worst chicken Marsala on the planet. Stouffers could have done better!!!
Awesome as always.
Took my mom to dinner we had a great time! Our food was excellent 😁
Chris our host checked in often during our date and our waitress Breanna was exceptional. Sat at the Chef's table and was sent complimentary apps. Excellent view of the kitchen. Best Chicken Marsala I have ever had. Will be coming back!
Service and food were both excellent. Server was very attentive to our needs.
I believe great bread and salad set the tone for a memorable meal and this was the case here. Two of us had pizza which was excellent. Great crust. Full of flavor and perfect I had the Chicken Riggies which was a bit rich for my personal taste and a little light on both the Chicken and cherry peppers. Wish I had gone with the chicken parm. We would not hesitate to return. Great service. Ambience. And food.
I have enjoyed the Pino for years. Nice atmosphere, good food and always great service.
Its a place my husband and I always like to go to when we go to the casino. Food and service is always excellent.
The food was excellent as always and our waiter Chris did an amazing job!
Food was delicious! Service was impeccable. Can’t wait to go back.
Love this restaurant and their service staff! Very accommodating!
Chicken Riggies are amazing! And the chef will make the chicken scarpella on request!!
Thank you for making my birthday very special with the slice of the best tiramisu I’ve ever had!!!
Awesome experience. We sat at the chef’s table and they gave us complimentary meatballs. Food was delicious and well worth the price. Outstanding server (Herb) who was prompt and caring. Will definitely be coming back because of him alone!
We always enjoy a meal at Pino Bianco before a show. The two types of arancini were very good. Both my greens and the roasted peppers gave a nice bit of heat as described on the menu. The flourless chocolate cake was not as dense as others we have had, but very good nonetheless.
Food and service is always fabulous. Never disappointed when dining here.
Always a great place to eat. Highly recommend the sea bass. Best around. Never a bad meal. Thank you!
