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!!
This is hands down the best Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh. We get takeout and dine in regularly and the food and service are always fantastic.
By far our favorite Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh. The food is unreal and service is great! Get the Bolognese, you won’t be sorry!
Everything was lovely and we will be back. :)
Delicious food; well prepared; friendly service; chef/owner friendly & helped bring serve our dinner.
Will definitely return.
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.
Tremendous in every way
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!!
The service and food were excellent, and importantly the attention regarding COVID made us feel totally comfortable.
Every meal at Pino’s is a special occasion. Service is on point, atmosphere is welcoming and the food is to die for.
Love the atmosphere of this neighborhood restaurant. The Lobster & Scallop pasta was delicious. I will definitely return
We absolutely LOVED all of the food here from appetizers to desserts. The wine was great, the service was quick and friendly, and the atmosphere was perfect for date night! 100% would recommend!
Good and atmosphere were excellent
Wonderful night out with a great outdoor ambiance! Thank you!
Excellent food and ambience. Wine by glass a little expensive but overall very good/excellent.
Good on all accounts
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.
Always feel safe. Food is very good. Staff terrific. Prices a bit high. Overall worth it
Food and beverages are really top-quality. Beautiful place indoors and out. Terrific friendly service.
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.
Great food and a friendly, neighborhood atmosphere. Really good wine list too.
Another excellent meal. Never disappointed
Another wonderful evening at Pino's. The atmosphere was extremely relaxing and the food was excellent.
I highly recommend an evening at Pino's!
Fabulous dinner. Great wine-thanks for the recommendation Mary. Cozy atmosphere. Pino’s is our favorite go to place. During quarantine we would get take out pizza. Excellent!!!
Great outdoor experience. Felt safe and welcome. Pino’s remains a go-to restaurant.
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.
Pino has been our go-to restaurant for any occasions since we moved from NY.
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.
Once again Pino’s lived to our high expectations. Great food and good service.
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!
We had a wonderful dinner food Was outstanding everything was homemade service was impeccable would definitely recommend this restaurant
Great food great service!! Pasta is homemade and delicious. Little gem!
Pasta is so good! Salmon was amazing. Fresh made in house tirimasu to die for.
Service and food was excellent. Working under today's restrictions for restaurants everything was perfect. This was our first visit to this restaurant won't be our last. We sat outside reminded us of some of those small restaurants on the streets of Italy.
We always love it here
As always, a fine dining experience!
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!
Had outdoor seating on a lovely evening. Very good service and good food. They appeared to follow all of the COVID guidelines in a safe and efficient manner.
