When reliable service and great food count, Pinotta is the place to go. I have been going to Pinotta for years now and I am never disappointed. The respect the staff give to you is outstanding and the food is always delicious and exciting.

Dinner at Pinotta was a delicious delight! We shared multiple small dishes and a pasta main - and the food was plentiful and delicious! Service could also not have been better, with professional and caring staff. When our outside table became a bit chilly - they found us another table inside! Thanks to all for making dining at Pinotta another winning outing!

Set menu overpriced.
Music too loud - if you need to raise your voice in this COVID period you're spreading particles further.
Pompous attitude

I made the reservation way in advance and specified that it was my wife's birthday and that she was pregnant. Despite that, they sat us at the back of the restaurant right next to a group of six people, who were visibly drunk, very loud, and kept getting top-ups from staff for the full hour we were there.

To my surprise, the front of the property was absolutely quiet and peaceful. Also, nearly empty upon arrival AND departure.

When leaving, the person at the front of the house just started asking very personal questions to my wife about her pregnancy. These weren't welcomed or incited, but very annoying and also very hard to avoid as we were paying for our meals.

We skipped dessert only to be able to leave the place.

We try to support our local businesses but find no pleasure in having a mediocre evening and be charged for it. This is not the Pinotta we knew or loved.

I have been to Pinotta many times and on this occasion, I introduced two new friends to the establishment. Glad to see that they both loved it also. "Feed me" was a good option and it was plentiful and delicious! We will all definitely be back!

We had the Good Time feed me menu which was incredible from start to finish. It was such a luxury being treated to a mystery menu at the whim of the incredible chefs. I can't recommend Pinotta highly enough.

Thanks to all for delivering a great local experience for our anniversary, especially to Heidi for putting together a fascinating matched wines experience which was also good value considering the range of what we tasted. See you again soon cheers.
