I have eaten here twice now, and both occasions opted for pizza, it was excellent. Good and quick service. Will for sure visit next time I am at Philip Island. However, one time was a Friday night and I do recommend booking.

Pinos hasn’t changed much over the years. Same interior, same friendly service. The lasagna is rich but moorish. I loved it! The other guys in the party had pizzas which they enjoyed. Pricing as you would expect.More

Terrible, unclean premises, expensive and too much on the menu. We ordered pork belly Italian style and chicken parmigiana, crackle on the pork wasn’t and there was absolutely no love in the Patmos, dry and very tasteless! Avoid at all costs.More
