“Amazing Vegan Pasta”

Pino Italian Restaurant
Ranked #189 of 657 Restaurants in Newcastle
Cuisines: Australian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 July 2018

The food at Pino's is so good I either eat in or grab takeaway once a week. The weekly changing menu is not only genius, it is delicious and keeps me coming back for more. The arancini is out of this world, the pastas are simple yet fully of flavour and the salads are fresh and fun. If you like Brussel sprouts, the roasted sprouts are a must order. The place is always packed which is testament to how good the food really is. Have never experienced bad service either on the phone or in person, quite the opposite.

The Set Up-You can't book. So if you enjoy standng outside and waiting this restaurant is for you.

Food-If you know how to cook don't bother coming here.The food is vegan and nice but not extraordinary.Two mains to choose from Pasta with salsa di Pomodoro and Pasta with mushroom sauce. Pretty easy to make at home-ours is better at home. Portions ok but not big. MENU-Limited. Entrees-arancini, bruschetta. 4 or so to choose from.
It 's simple, nice food.

Atmosphere-Great! Funky groovy.Loved it. Done a great job.Byo.
Clean.

SERVICE- The waiter was very unfriendly and quite rude! After we'd had our meal he virtually told us to "move it along".He wanted to fit in a table of 6.THIS IS WHY WE WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS PLACE...He was too rude. We 've been to lots of restaurants in Newcastle and haven't come across such a poor attitude to service. When you go out to a restauaurant part of the experience is to enjoy great hospitality-unfortunately due to the service we felt the hospitality was really very poor. It isn't enough to have a funky place!
Disappointed!We don't recommend eating here.

Food was old and seafood overcooked and rubbery. Very expensive for what you get, wouldn't order again.

This small friendly restaurant serves great food promptly. We had pasta and it was delicious. Unpretentious places like this are hard to find.

Our girls had meatballs and spaghetti, they enjoyed every mouthful. Best they have ever eaten. I had the special seafood pasta. I asked for some chilli and I was served their own char grilled sauce, it was beautiful. Could recommend this restaurant.
