Pino’s is back and perhaps better than ever. The new space is filled with wood and warmth and a menu that is all Pino. Fresh seafood–like octopus carpaccio grilled with lemon, arugula and grape tomatoes–sing the songs of the coast of Italy. This is Pino!
Pino’s is open for lunch Monday through Friday and dinner Monday through Saturday, and exciting details are everywhere on the plate. Our lunch of fresh artichokes with organic arugula (from Jessica’s Stand), fresh mozzarella and prosciutto is a dish people crave. And then, of course, there’s the carbonara. The bite of pepper that comes through the saltiness of the pancetta and cream brings this spaghetti dish together perfectly. It’s a true classic.
And best of all, the hospitality is just as good as the food.
Ossco bucco and veal Milanese, along with rich Southern Italian seafood stews and homemade bread, are all waiting to please the palate.
Established in 2000. Pino’s has been a favorite among locals since the first location at Main and Gulf Stream Ave. The other location was a 150 seat full service location at 100 Central from 2005 until 2010. Now the new location at Paradise Plaza has a casual chic ambiance where the foodies get together.
“I had heard about Pino’s for a long time before we finally got there. We should have tried it sooner. They offer authentic Italian food. This ain’t no Olive Garden! We ordered salads, appetizers like grilled octopus, and I had a delicious grilled striped bass. We were a party of 8. We all got to try a variety of menu items and they were all delicious. Pino made sure it was a special meal for all of us. He joined us for a special treat at the end of the meal. They play great chill lounge music. We closed the restaurant. Really enjoyed our night there!” – Nancy H.
