I was very enjoyable to be able to eat outdoors in a beautiful setting. Service was great.
We are very glad you are back in business.
Excellent experience. So glad they are open again!
My husband and I shared/split a Caesar salad- it was half heads of romaine with dressing, croutons and Parmesan. It was good and plenty for both of us!
I had the special- braised boneless short ribs, garlic mashed potatoes and fresh roasted seasonal vegs. The short rib was amazing!! It melted in my mouth! Potatoes and vegs were delicious-roasted to tender! I ate everything!!
My husband had 1/2 portion of wild caught salmon with vegetables.
He said it was delicious but was about 3oz so a bit on the small side. Still... very good, cooked to perfection.
Our waiter was helpful, friendly and attentive!
Our other wait staff( assistant to waiter) was the most delightful person! We engaged her in conversation which I do not think she expected. It was what made our evening!!!
I would recommend this restaurant for the food, prices are average for the area, it is a bit noise/cave like/ echoing in the room. Currently they have combined the Fireside Lounge with the restaurant so outside is music/dancing and more noise.
Otherwise recommend for a nice dinner especially if you do not want to drive
Elizabeth and her assistant name? are phenomenal as always.
Love the consistent great food!
Everything was great but not fantastic. May return in the future.
We appreciated the kind service and great ambiance of this hard-to-find gem. The food was okay, but the drinks were great, the setting was made for conversation and the attention welcome.
We are both gluten intolerant and they were great to accommodate. The outdoor seating is awesome
Our server, Jose is a treasure! He was attentive, obliging, and so pleasant! The chicken panini sandwich was delish and my husband’s pi Zuni I burger outstanding!
Great waitstaff! Very accommodating.
Had dinner before Jazz concert on the property. This restaurant never disappoints on their homemade pasta. My favorite place to eat when In the desert
Our dinners were perfectly cooked, portions were generous and prices were reasonable. Save room for dessert - the presentation is top-notch with flavor to match.
Great service Great pizza from wood fired oven.
Wine pairing was exceptional. Presentation and matching were excellent. Meeting chef was great and Chris and Marco from Riboli did an outstanding job. One of best we’ve ever attended
The restaurant was in a lovely resort. The food was very good and service was friendly and attentive.
The entree's were all very good. Appetizers were not. Service was very slow in spite of the restaurant not being very crowded.
The food was good, portions more than adequate. The menu is very limited. The service was split: the waitress was mediocre at best but the assistant was much better.
What a fun Valentine’s date! An excellent paired menu with reasonable prices, we loved the food and the craft cocktails. Angel was a great waiter and the outdoor space was nicely heated.
We were there on Valentines evening and everything was as to be expected for hotel dining. We had a seven o'clock reservation and told it would be a wait, because, as standard for hotel dining, they had overbooked. They did comp us a cocktail, which I was impressed by. The prix fix menu was very nice and the food was good and decently priced. The room had no feeling of Valentines day. Consumers were not given a red rose and the decor had no Valentine theme.
The service on this particular evening (Valentine's Day) was especially bad. It was, indeed, so bad that many patrons left before their food was served. Our meal was very long in coming, the food was just OK, and the prices were not good value. All in all, this was a disappointing experience.
Staff went above and beyond. Thank you
Restaurant was not crowded but service was spotty. Server was helpful with wine selection. Pizza was good.
The food is superb - well presented and deliciously prepared.
Service exceptional. Food average. Setting beautiful and convenient to villas
Great view, sevice and food. The flavors in the watermelon burrata salad amazing! Our waiter Lance was very friendly and took great care of us. We will be back!
Our server was amazing and fast. She recomended the shrimp pizza and I loved it! My wife had the 1/2 salmon and raced about it.
We went to celebrate our anniversary. First time there. The service was great and we were made to feel special. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. It is nice to see someone enjoy their job.
We were there on a cool evening end it was dark. Consequently we could not sit out on the patio/Terrace.We would like to go again during daylight hours because the setting and the grounds look fabulous.
They looked to be understaffed, but that is a poor excuse. Took 20 minutes before we first saw our waiter, another 15 before my drink came. We were encouraged by the waiter to try the buffet for dinner. The chicken was terrible, potatoes were fine, no vegetable available. Would have complained, but waiter never came back around. The bus lady did a great job though
Great Food and Service in a Beautiful environment!
The food continues to get better and better
Out of root beer, ( how does that happen?) out of 2 appetizers we tried to order. The pasta dish my husband ordered was the worst pasta he had ever had. ( How does that happen?) I ordered a cauliflower steak and it tasted like they just cut it open and forgot cooked it for 5 minutes. No seasoning and raw. Our " Italian Wine" at an Italian restaurant you would think would have been good, but I think they just dumped their red wine vinegar into the glass. Such a horrendous over priced and unedible meal. I am horrified that the Westin hasn't done something to change this. The worst meal in this country we have ever had.
A delicious, friendly and amicable ambiance is the perfect setting for this excellent Italian cuisine restaurant, we had a couple of dinners at this place and both were extremely enjoyable.
We wold recommend asking for tables near the window, the spaghetti with meatballs, chicken parmigiana, prime and rib with shrimp and the French bread dessert are all outstanding.
Hostess was not friendly food ok nothing gr8 ambience 2 bright . If u hav children it works
Delightful Italian style restaurant with friendly service; family, elegant and romantic ambiance and delicious Italian style cuisine.
First time at Pinzimini for lunch. Lots of vegetarian friendly choices, wonderful vegetarian soups,salads and entrées plus many other items. The gelati’s with berries topped off the meal. Great service from Jose
The food was really good, our server Lance was really awesome. We had the calamari, the shrimp, the Salmon and meatballs.
We were here on Christmas Day with two disabled, elderly parents (before the large brunch was offered). This was a special outing for them. Though we asked for quiet, padded seating, relatively near the restroom, we were placed as far away from the restroom as possible, then completely ignored for 20 minutes. There were only two other tables that were occupied. Staff were bustling, but when we attempted to contact them to get service, we were ignored. Worse, yet, one staff member told us that this was not his table. What table was his, then? The only table receiving service had two small children. Though we were not in a hurry, it was time to eat and one of our group is diabetic, requiring regular meal times. After twenty minutes we received menus. Fifteen minutes later our order was taken. Then we got water. Nothing else was offered until the food arrived a full hour after our arrival. My meal was cold, but I wasn't able to wait another hour for more food. It was if the staff wanted to dissuade these old people from eating at their establishment, in favor of younger, more vibrant clientele. Despicable. Meanwhile, the bustling staff was slamming plates around, generally making a loud racket while we were trying to converse. This was a thoroughly irritating and unfriendly atmosphere, created by the callous and neglectful staff. Management take note: This staff is driving away paying customers, despite the lovely environment. We felt completely unwelcome.
Won’t be back
See personal message
They messed up and forgot to put our order in so an hr+before we ate- things happen and they owned up to the error apologized and made it right with a couple extra glasses of wine and a discount- food was good and the resort is awesome- would come back.
It was terrible. Do not recommend, do not go here.
Even though Pinziminis only offered a shortened menu due to a couple of special events we enjoyed the dishes we ordered. We have dined at Pinziminis in the past and always had exceptional good food and service. Yesterday was my husband‘s birthday and again, we were not disappointed. The free dessert was incredible. If you haven‘t ordered the meatballs, Pinziminis signature dish, you should. There are beyond delicious!
