Very fast service, great food, has authentic style taste, and fast polite service, located in waterfront area of town, on street parking at least at night. Go there after the penguins.

We ordered garlic bread, a meat lovers pizza and a carbonara pasta dish. All were delicious! There was not a crumb left! Perfect service, waiters were very polite and attentive. Good Value.

If you're a family looking for afamily friendly eat out then this place is for you. Reasonably priced and large portions. If you're looking for a quiet dining, head down the street!

Family of four - cold, hungry and craving for good italian food. We researched on what's good near the penguin parade and this popped up. Arrived at the restaurant around 7.30pm and it was packed despite its big space. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait long. Wait staff was prompt, friendly and attentive. Very hip and bustling ambiance! We ordered... More

We had a lovely experience here on a Friday night. Although, it was busy, everything arrived quickly and was beautiful. We had Carbonara and the Salmon...absolutely Devine. Would come back. Our waitress was lovely, a gorgeous, friendly, young lady with brown hair and glasses:)

Really lives up to its reviews! Cold and hungry after the penguin parade. The marinara pizza was so awesome- nice thin crust, succulent seafood on top. Even my kids wanted to eat. Regret not getting the largest size!

We ate here as a family while holidaying in cowes for a week, such delicious meals all four of us had and those Nutella canolis were to die for. Will be making our two hour drive back just to eat here again.

This would have to be the best pizza I've had. Good quality and fresh ingredients. The staff are friendly and service was great. I would highly recommend you visit if you love Italian food.

We needed to grab dinner before continuing to the penguin parade. Our guide mentioned a few restaurants. Pino's looked the most interesting for a quick meal. The selection was good. We did not have pizza, but the pasta dishes were very good. The restaurant was not busy so service was fine. Cannot say what it would be like if they... More
