Italian
Since opening the door to our home, this humble Italian restaurant in Alexandria, we have been blessed with the company of hundreds of curious diners in search of something more.

Couples on first dates relax and share cocktails at the hand-crafted wooden bar. The soft, smooth music allows the conversation to flow. And should it stop, our friendly bartenders know how to break the ice.

Lovers celebrating an anniversary sit opposite one another at candle-lit tables and raise their glasses to past happiness and future love. Our waiters ensure they are well taken care of without intruding on those special moments.

Our menu, which uses traditional Italian produce put together with a little panache’, was designed to be shared. Small and large groups celebrate birthdays, homecomings, Christmas parties and corporate functions at our long table, where share plates are passed around and no-one is forgotten.

We can’t wait to meet you.

The food was a bit let down this time, the pasta lacking favour with morton bay bug and average belly pork dish.

The food was alright but the set menu literally gives us the food we don't want to order. May come again but will never choose the set menu. Very bad choice by the chef.

Unfriendly service, made to share a table for my 30th birthday that was books weeks in advance and being told to squish over twice. 3 things wrong with our order, no mentions of specials. Was recommended the most expensive glass of wine without being told the price $35 a glass. When you’re paying $700 for a family dinner you’d expect much better service. Disappointed.

I never reply to any review, but I will make an exception for this particular review. I serve you, and I kid ask you to be mindful of the people next to your group. The order was taken by me, and double-check with the table. No mistake was made. My waitress suggested a wine accordingly to your request, and she pointed to the drink list. The price of the wines "by the glass" and "by the bottle" are stated on our drink list. We are sorry if you have mistaken the price with the vintage of the wine.

Outstanding! Staff were lovely, very welcoming and knowledgeable. The food was unreal, authentic Italian and top quality, worth every cent. The wine list was very impressive, something to suite everyone and well thought out to match with the food.

Fourth visit and still many more to come. Service whilst seated at the bar was warm and attentive. Food was creative and well executed. Ambience really felt like a neighbourhood trattoria you'd find in Europe.

Very cosy atmosphere. Extensive wine menu and knowledgeable sommelier. Menu is designed for sharing but the food portions are very small so need to get extra portions for larger groups. Eg 7 pieces of eggplant involtini was $66! And water is $13!

This restaurant is exquisite. So few places manage to create an ambience that is warm and inviting but Pinos is next level cosiness - very soothing to the senses. The food is delicious, the wine list is divine and the service is both confident and relaxed. Beautiful neighbourhood location and a vibrant joviality is experienced by the patrons. I would definitely eat here regularly if I didn’t live in Melbourne. LOVED it!

Yummy food and wine. A lovely family celebration for 7 people was changed when the restaurant staff tried to charge us a Sunday service fees twice! A food and drinks bill for $700 was turned into a $940 bill - 10% service fee ($70) for Sunday, another 10% ($77) for more than 6 people, then another service fee ($ 85) . Staff a bit surprised when we questioned it!
Addition:-
Matteo kindly phoned us to follow up on our restaurant experience. He was gracious and explained some circumstances and encouraged to dine there again, which we hope to soon.

when you can't go to Bella Italia you go here. As soon as you enter this beautiful space you feel like immediately taken back to Italy. The seasonal menu is authentic and absolutely delicious. The team is friendly, fun and very attentive. Buonissimo!

Another fantastic meal at Pinots for us.
The ambiance, service, wine list, food were as fabulous as always.
It's not the cheapest italian around, but if you want a gorgeous, romantic setting, great wine and food, and terrific, experience service, then you will love Pinot's.

We had been meaning to try Pino’s for a while and decided to go for our anniversary. From the moment we arrived, we had a lovely experience. The service was brilliant, the food so yummy and the atmosphere was buzzy. Although on the pricier side, we feel it was worth every penny and would not hesitate to recommend
