Always a great meal and fantastic service. Definitely the best pizza I have ever had. Ice cream with sparklers for my little girls birthday.

Working on a recommendation, we found Pino's very busy but they managed to fit us in. Food was authentic Italian - nothing fancy but good and tasty with an excellent selection and good wine list.

Nice place for families, lots of space, good quality food. Only one waiter outside though, probably could have done with 2. He was nice though. Big pizzas :)

Liked the menu, had few options eg pasta, pizza, fishnchips, chicken parma etc and the service was very quick!! Outdoor n indoor sitting, we sat outside, lovely atmosphere. Had a very late lunch with 7 with others.

Hubby and I called in for tea. After a short wait to be seated we settled in to read the menu. Lots of choice. We ordered food and drinks, all delicious and great value for money. Excellent service too, great atmosphere- a lovely place

Busy, noisy restaurant with a somewhat authentic Italian atmosphere, but the food was a bit disappointing. Salad was small and super basic. Pizza was not dressed very generously. Pastas looked good. We didn't try them.

Good pizzas here. One of those places where there looks to be lots of vacant tables but at the same time, there was a long queue! The queue moved fast enough, so, it was not a big issue but I’m sure the table waiting process...More
