A good friend of mine describes Pinetta's as the best food with the worst service in town. I wouldn't say that, but the service could be better. However, the food is some of the best in town and is quite a bargain. I particularly like...More

My wife and I love to go eat somewhere that one or both of us have never been before. I've been to Pinetta's 5 or 6 times but she has never been. When you walk in it's dark and intimate, only candles on the tables...More

Atmosphere here is extremely interesting. Wait staff is also very interesting. Food is always very good--especially the fresh pasta with pesto and the lasagna. Sensation salad and bread is good, also.

A complete lack of cleanliness and worse hospitality shouts loudley over average to good food. Occsssionally, the food can be excellent but the extremely inconsistent preparation is not worth a roll of the food roulette wheel. Usually, a food comment results in a rebuttal rather...More

Everything about this restaurant will leave you with strong opinions. Entering from Perkins you are met with a corner entrance in an old strip center. The restaurant is small and if full somewhat cramped. The original owner's kitchen table is still in the restaurant from...More
