The food was awesome and we rated the value very good for homemade pasta and quality of food. Gave 4 stars for overall merely because the food, rather than the interior decor is the clear focus of the restaurant. But we would rather eat great food at a casual neighborhood restaurant than mediocre food at an impeccably designed restaurant. We will definitely go back.

Have enjoyed meals at Pino's after ball games, before theatre & date nights with my wife. Always consistent quality with very good service. Creative fare & nice wine list.

After attending a public event our group [4 people] made a quick reservation at Pino's, were we ever glad we diid! The food and service were first rate and the comfortable semi casual atmosphere was just right. Everyone in our group ordered something different and everyone was pleased with their order. In fact we asked for small tasting plates so we could share our goodies with each other. We had heard that Pino's was a BYOB establishment however that has apparently changed, no big deal though, the "25$ a bottle wine list" actually served up very nice bottle [or two] of Cab. Will be sure to return and would gladly recommend Pino's to anyone visiting the east end.

This is our go to spot. But even our favorite place can have an off night. Service, as always, was outstanding; wine was good, but it was a very busy night. Glad we had reservations. Food was good but not the standard of what my husband and I were use to getting. We will be back, but maybe not on a Saturday night.

we took our 90 year old friend and his wife for a birthday dinner - I made a reservation for 6:45 -
and indicated it was for a birthday and requested a birthday dessert - we ordered and waited an 1.5 hours for our entrees as people around us ate and left, even though we asked several times what was going on? I and my husband then both spoke to our server about a candle and 2 desserts we wanted, after ANOTHER 0.5 hour one dessert and no candle- asked for coffee and got cup with massive liptstick marks - so gross - everyone there blamed someone else on the excessive wait, mistakes etc, no attempt to make things better, our bill came out and we were charged for everything -
owner made a rude remark as we left - WILL NEVER EVER GO BACK- WORST PLACE EVER

If you know anything about Italian food, this is the place to eat. We have been here several times and will continue coming back. Joe the owner/chef makes an appearance in the evening to make sure every meal was enjoyed by all. Thanks Joe!!

I enjoy the ambiance of PINO - the wait staff is great - the atmosphere cozy and warm and never too noisy. Great food and reasonable. I especially like sitting outside in good weather - or at the bar. Thanks!

Pinos is always reliable for a nice drink and meal. From my house it's a nice walk through the park to get there, so I appreciate the casual atmosphere yet delicious fare. And I really enjoy the art from Haiti that adorns the walls. Art and deliciousness all in one.

I had always walked past Pino's but never stopped in, so when my folks, who were in town visiting, stated they wanted Italian I suggested we go there! We couldn't have picked a better spot. The sangria was made just right and delicious. Our food was fabulous - from the calamari to the pasta dishes and pizza. Thank you all for making our evening great! :)

Pino's is our favorite place for authentic Italian food with flair. We have never been disappointed except that the linguine with clam sauce is often times not on the menu. Especially like the variety of appetizers and home made pasta and desserts.
Owners are present and engaged and eager to please.

Good atmosphere and very good services. They had good wine list with great prices for a bottle. The food was good especially the halibut, steak, and Italian fries. One of our party has a shellfish allergy and the halibut came with shrimp Risotto. The kitchen made a special order for her with the halibut and pasta without the shrimp. It was a very enjoyable evening

This is a very nice restaurant with great food, great wine, and great service. If you don't know what wine to drink with your meal they will go out of their way to pair the wine with the food you ordered. The entire staff is very welcoming and friendly.

Waiter Mark was awesome, the food was delicious Italian cuisine. It got a bit costly, because my wife and I drank a ton of wine and while the menu is overall not cheap, it won't break you either if you keep the wine to a minimum. :)
