We came from Oregon, Florida, South Dakota and Arizona to gather and have a great dinner. It did not disappoint. Chef Pino came to visit and made the night even more special.

Unique and calm atmosphere with no tv or loud music.
Many great Wine choices by bottle or glass. The homemade pasta with marinara sauce and meatballs was some of the best I've had. Our service was very good.
Somewhat pricey but worth it.

We went this evening for our son's birthday and it was the first time for all four of us. What a great dining experience. The restaurant has a great ambience and our waitress was excellent. We began with three appetizers and each was wonderful. The fried calamari was the best we have ever had and the baked olives were such a delicious and interesting dish. All of our dinners were excellent from salmon, to steak to the homemade pasta. The dessert was perhaps one of the best I have ever had with puff pastry, berries and lemon mascarpone. Wine was reasonable and very good. So with all of this said, I would suggest that anyone give this place a try. Great for families, couples and kids. I don't know how we waited so long to eat here and will most definitely go again and again.

I’ve been to Pino’s in the past and remembered the restaurant as much better than tonight’s experience. The menu looked so good, the dishes were, unfortunately, disappointing. The fried calamari was not hot when served, soggy breading and chewy. The salad I ordered had barely a sprinkling of goat cheese and four little cubes of beets. The pizza was also a miss. The sauce had no seasoning and the cheese, again, was sparse.
We also ordered gin and tonics. I think they forgot the gin. My friend ordered the salmon special, prepared and served without imagination. Our bill was over $100, yikes! No plans to ever return.

This place is always consistently good, we love the appetizers, pasta dishes and soups. The $25 bottles of wine are nice as well. Our son really loves this place, it's best to make a reservation as it is a small bistro style restaurant. Also has a decent bar area for a meal there as well.
