We ate here the two nights we were in Phillip Island. Great pasta and pizza. The service was excellent. An Italian restaurant actually run by Italians.

We'd been at the Penguin Parade and realised it got too late to go home for dinner. We looked on line for places that were open and Pino's seemed like the most likely to have decent food and some adult beverages. It's not fine dining,...More

Stayed at Phillip Island over the school holidays and this was definitely one of our favorite restaurants for dinner. The kids meals were nicely sized. Carbonara was delicious.

If you want quality food and drink this is a good place to be. During peak times hard to get a table but great quality with good atmosphere with memorabilia on the walls.
