The service was awesome but the guy that served us a lil bit arrogant when telling the menu as if we “couldn’t afford” it. The food is good and the place is great.
Great overall experience! Would try again for sure
Great evening with friends to celebrate a double birthday and made more special by the receipt of complimentary champagne on arrival. We were touched and found the service excellent. The double seating with an early and a late sitting is less to our liking and we did feel rushed at the end.
Just very good Italian. The lamb Ragu was gorgeous and would be back just for that. Struggled with the Italian wine list but our headwaiter was very informative and picked some very nice wines for us. We didn't try the desserts but were happy to finish on a few beautiful hard cheeses at the end there.
Excellent attentive service. We had the Baccala, Eggplant Parmigiana, tagliolini with spanned crab and the risotto. None of them could be faulted. Definitely be going back....many times hopefully
Fabulous good, Fabulous service every time. Highly recommend!
Absolute gem of a restaurant! Pinos was a great find; right in the middle of Erskineville/Alexandria. So delicious! Loved the weeknight special of rock lobster tagliatelle. The waiters were great at guiding us with the amount of food to order and the wine to choose with our meal. Really nice!!
Really yummy authentic food. All the pasta is fresh and made on the premises. We will be back. The alcohol is expensive.
The food was good but let down by the service. We had a 1.5hr sitting and arrived 5 min late for our booking. Our mains took a while to come out and we were rushed out the door by the waiter who said that our meal was rushed because we had arrived late!
One of the best in Sydney I'd say. Great prices, great food, great cocktails, fantastic service.
Just as awesome as the last time we dined.
Sat at the bar, excellent cocktail list and great little wine list.
Food and service was on point also.
We'll become regulars in time.
I could not fault anything!! The only thing they could have done to go above and beyond is give it to us for free. :) but it was worth every dollar!!!
My local and I adore the place. It’s absolutely brilliant.
A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. We will definitely be back.
A wonderful restaurant with beautiful dishes and a great range if wines. A bit expensive but will defenitely be back when i save some mpre $
Blink and you’ll miss it, pinos is tucked away within Alexandria. They offer a wide selection of wines and a carefully curated menu. I recommend getting an antipasto to start as their cheeses are wonderful. The staff are friendly welcoming and helpful when you’re stuck on what cheese to pick. Wonderful atmosphere 10/10 would recommend. A little expensive but worth it.
Really enjoyable Sunday lunch with close friends and family.
Interesting decor, with lots of attention to detail. Although quite dense with 'rustic' dark timber joinery and features, the gentle lighting and open feel from the perimeter windows provides a lovely ambiance.
The food was excellent across all courses; gorgeous, melt in your mouth beef carpaccio, homemade pate (including a few shavings of amazing lardo (not 'lard')), a full flavoured plate of fregola with prawns and asparagus and a cleansing, white chocolate semifreddo with rhubarb and chocolate shavings were all great.
Capped off with a super refreshing amaro from the Italian Alps, you couldn't really ask for more.
creative, delicious italian. cosy atmosphere. super friendly staff, amazing wine list. a beautiful neighborhood restaurant. will be heading back to Pino’s for sure.
Ticked all the boxes for me. From the moment the doors opened i felt comfortable. Great food, great fitout and the waiters new the menu inside and out. Highly recommend.
We ordered 3 entrees plus bread and olives to share between 8 people, and they bought out 3x each of the dishes. We had to tell them to take the extra dishes back (it was a ridiculous amount of food). The staff where then quite rude and it just made things quite uncomfortable. The mains were not great, pasta undercooked and other dishes bland. The wine was great, the atmosphere really good, exactly the type of place we wanted for my husbands birthday. The service and food just let it down.
Highly recommend Pino's Vino e Cucina we were in Sydney prior to leaving for our holiday to Vietnam. We did a random google of resturants in the area we were staying and were fortunate enough to get a booking at Pino's Vino e Cucina everything was perfect.
Great start to our holiday hadn't left the country but already living it up.
Fantastic food, service was wonderful and really nice ambience.
Gorgeous food - it was unpretentious with simple dishes served with care and beautiful produce. Perfect for a date or catch up with friends - loved the easygoing, cosy atmosphere. I'm definitely going back!
Great food, really friendly staff! Will go back for sure.
The food was only out done by the service. Matteo (owner and chef) was authentic, attentive, knowledgeable and an all round great person. It was like going around to a friends house for dinner...But this friend is an amazing cook!
This restaurant is run with passion, warmth and sincerity - these qualities are reflected in the delicious food, the charming service, the lovely ambience. I cannot recommend Matteo and his team strongly enough!
Delicious food, great service, awesome cocktails!!
Literally a neighbourhood gem - great food, wine and atmosphere.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Pinos. The food and service was excellent and the atmosphere lovely. I wouldn’t recommended sitting at the bar though if you intend to stay for a while as the stools get uncomfortable and the air conditioning is cold in that area. Our waiter kindly moved us to a table as one was available on the night we were there. I can’t wait to go back again.
The restaurant is a great find in the middle of Alexandria, the ambiance and overall feel of the venue was great.
The menu looked very promising with a traditional Italian menu. The wine selection was amazing and great for wine lovers.
The entree was fantastic (their burrata special) however my main was a bit too salty. My friends however have any issues with their mains. Overall, the service was too slow which was a let down to what could be a really great restaurant.
Lovely ambience, food, wine with friendly and knowlegable staff. A ‘neighbourhood jem’...Easy to recommended...
We had been meaning to go to Pino's for a while and used the occasion of friends visiting from New Zealand. We couldn't have chosen better! Pino's was intimate enough for us to have great conversational catch up, the service was brilliant with wonderful food and wine recommendations, and the food itself was divine. I had oysters with watermelon and cab sav sorbet - loved it, the duck breast which was delicious and presented wonderfully, and I couldn't resist dessert just because I was having such a good time. My friends all raved about their meals as well - so I can't be smug that I made the best choices. We all loved it!
Warm, friendly atmosphere, and splendid food. Always a treat.
Nothing out of the ordinary. Mozzarella was clearly frozen beforehand, as was the prosciutto, and the portions weren't Italian! Overall, way too expensive and service was amateur.
Everything was great, from booking the table, the service is great and food exceptional. Great vibe at all the tables, the customers look relaxed and happ.
Love this gem of a restaurant. The staff are so professional and the food is not your typical Italian . The menu is creative and the food is very delicious, with a good wine list .
We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Pino’s. Amazing service, food and wine. Highly recommend.
The food was delicious and the service was great. Will definitely be going back soon for more
As our Uber approached, the driver said 'ooooh, romantic'. He was on point. Huge wood panel door entrance — dark, candle lit, handsome Italian staff, very date flavoured with excellent food to match the special occasion vibe. Get the tornorello pasta with vongole.
An amazing, cosy, little gem within the city fringe. Staff were accomodating, attentive and knowledgeable. Not to mention their great wine selection.
Grazie to Mateo and team.
