Pino's has been a favorite for my family for years. Jen and Joe have a real mastery of making the experience of dining out a wonderful time. We ordered the Carbonara, Bolognese and the Wester Ross Salmon. What a delicious dinner. We almost don't want to eat the leftovers so we can savor the flavor as long as we can. Yet we will!!

Amazing service and fabulous food! Highlights included the crispy brussels sprouts, the Italian fries with fresh herbs, the Italian wedding soup, the gnocchiette, and the fluffy pumpkin cheesecake. Highly recommend.

Pino’s was incredible, I will absolutely come back the next time I’m in town!! My boyfriend and I had the calamari and bruschetta, which was an incredible start to our three course meal. And it just kept getting better!! The waitress, bartender, and chef/owner were all so welcoming and gave amazing recommendations. Truly, I urge you to support this business!!

Loved the whole night. The manager Jen was particularly amazing. We can’t wait to go back.

Good neighborhood spot with great food and a great vibe.

They also made every effort to make sure we felt safe and comfortable and that our experience was the best it could be.

Highly recommend.

Have always had good dining experiences at Pino's. This date we had to deal with the Covid-19 problem and were seated outside. Still not a problem, as the staff attended to our needs well. Pino's is on a quiet street and our evening went undisturbed . Food was served hot and tasty as usual, the house made pasta with marinara & sausage hit the spot. My wife tried the chicken scaloppini and commented on the fine wine sauce & presentation. We also enjoyed a nice bottle of Montepulciano at a very fair price.
We will continue visiting Pino's for a great meal, each time.

There hasn't been a time we have dined here that we haven't asked why we don't frequent this restaurant more often. The service, hospitality and cuisine have never failed to exceed our expectations. There are undoubtedly still a lot of concerns and uncertainty about if now is the time to start returning to some sense of normalcy in the ways we previously enjoyed. I would like to assure you that your experience at Pino's will go a long way to convincing you that it is in fact the right time. Haven't been out in a while, long or otherwise? Start here. Haven't been back and aren't sure if you should go? Make a reservation today.
Fantastic food. Fantastic people. A for certain gem of a restaurant where everyone does everything they can to ensure you have the best experience they can provide.

It was excellent authentic Italian food. I was disappointed they didn't recognize the special occasion - Birthday - that was checked. Other restaurants that day did. Attention to detail is always important.

It was a wonderful experience at Pino’s! The food there is great, and the chef is very kind. The service there is great as well, and even if you takeout some of the food and microwave it, it tastes just as good.

Discovered this hidden neighborhood gem last evening while visiting my sons in Pittsburgh. We enjoyed a lovely outdoor dinner on a cozy sidewalk table with amazing food and welcoming service! The owner/chef,Pino, even took the time to come out and check with us and chat! It was an overall incredible experience, and can’t wait to enjoy it again! Try Pino...you’ll be happy you did!

Food was outstanding! We had outdoor seating on the sidewalk next to the curb. Not the ambience we were hoping for but it was our first time so we didn’t know what to expect. We do plan to visit again and request indoor seating for the full experience this place has to offer!
