Pino's Vino e Cucina
Couples on first dates relax and share cocktails at the hand-crafted wooden bar. The soft, smooth music allows the conversation to flow. And should it stop, our friendly bartenders know how to break the ice.
Lovers celebrating an anniversary sit opposite one another at candle-lit tables and raise their glasses to past happiness and future love. Our waiters ensure they are well taken care of without intruding on those special moments.
Our menu, which uses traditional Italian produce put together with a little panache’, was designed to be shared. Small and large groups celebrate birthdays, homecomings, Christmas parties and corporate functions at our long table, where share plates are passed around and no-one is forgotten.
We can’t wait to meet you.

We had the Tuscan degustation menu - was great. Look forward to trying the main menu.
Fantastic dining experience! The staff are just superb and look after you.
Fantastic restaurant. Definitely not a ‘cheap eats’ but great value... ambience, service, great food, tasty wines!
The service was outstanding and the food sensational. Couldn’t fault it
Thoroughly enjoyed our night. Food and service were amazing!
Have been to Pinos a few times and always return. Don't think we ordered very well this time around. The wine and dessert was perfect, but the food was a bit average. We did a few entrees and shared those as a meal:
- olives, bread,
- buratta - would recommend
- octopus carpaccio - wouldn't recommend
- beef tartare - pretty good
- yellowfin tuna - didn't have much flavour
Also appreciate that we did not get textures right on this meal and ordered the slimest of foods haha.
Every aspect was amazing!! Can’t recommend this place enough
poor service, a bit too much preasure, they kind of force you to take the olive + bread for starter, which cost a gentle $16... moreover, the cook the pork cutlet rare! i wont go back
Pino's Vino e Cucina make you feel very welcome and make the effort to listen and recommend carefully. Superb food every time. A minor gripe, I'd love more vegetarian options.
Second time we had diner at Pino’s and it’s always outstanding in terms of food, service, staff... really recommend this place!
Love this little place. Food is exceptional and service is great. Ah ha hidden little gem in the middle of Alexandria
Excellent as always!
We arrived with a very important business contact and had a table of 3 booked, on arrival we were told that we would have dinner at the bar as all bookings for 3 eat at the bar.
My wife would say I am always too loose, that I never make a fuss over these things but even I was surprised that a restaurant would assume that it is ok to take a bar seat booking for a dinner reservation without clarifying with the customer if this is ok, it simply did not meet our requirements for such an important dinner.
At the end of the day it is up to the restaurant as to how they run their business but I just think that they should not assume that it is ok for them to handle bookings without some clarity if they are only offering bar seats , had they told us that this was the case upfront we would have went elsewhere without any issues.
Amazing food and wine!!!
Food was excellent - they were training a new chef and the service was a little slow due to that, but it was explained to us from the outset. Wine menu great!
My daughter, her husband and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant service and food. The Ambiance was just what you would expect from a wonderful Italian restaurant. We will return before our return to Canada. Loved the oysters and pork neck. A nice vegetarian entree would make this a 5 start.
Authentic, high quality Italian food. Superb wine list and exceptional service.
Sharp, professional service.
Experienced chefs and produce on point.
Hidden away in the back streets of Alexandria sits this neighbourhood gem which offers a simple one-page menu which, in comparison to many Italian restaurants, is unexpected. But you can be sure of the quality with every dish which is uniquely made with the finest ingredients, exceptional detail and wonderful tastes and textures.
Having been a couple of times before we tend to save visits for special occasions as to truly enjoy the visit partnering with a wine tops things off and the selection of wines is high-end with many having been imported so bottles are priced accordingly.
Well worth visiting the area to enjoy this mighty fine restaurant.
Great service and food - the black pudding was superb, pasta excellent & risotto was perfect. The ricotta cake was a gem for dessert.
I took my elderly Mum here for lunch. It was a Sunday at 12:30 and as the area is a mix of industrial and residential, it was super quiet which made it lovely and relaxing.
The service was spot on and the food was exceptional. The pasta was hand made and beautifully cooked and portion sizes were generous with beautiful presentation. I’m definitely going back. Next time I will try it in the evening and would definitely go on a date night as it has quite a romantic feel.
They tried to sit us at what looked like a window bench that would barely be suitable for a morning coffee let alone a nice, expensive dinner. They said they could not sit us at an actual table because others (apparently more inportant as maybe not booked through open table) had first right at real tables. Disgusted with how poorly we were treated so we left.
After living in the neighbourhood for many years, I'm delighted to have such a quality dining experience just on our doorstep. Lovely ambience, divine food & wine and attentive service. This was our second visit and we'll be back for more, that's for sure!
This was one of favourite restaurants this year. They've got it all right : )
Wonderful neighbourhood gem. Professional service, incredible food and lovely romantic ambiance. A must visit.
A fabulous evening from start to finish. The owner greeted us and made us feel very welcome. Our celebration was acknowledged and the attention to detail was consistent throughout the night. The food was delicious. We will definitely be back! Thank you
As always this place is a must, people need to find this place and try. It’s next level for a spot in Alexandria
The service at Pino's was amazing. They made us feel very welcome and even had a prosecco on arrival for us as they knew it was for a birthday. Food was delicious, especially the eggplant parmagiana, the duck and always good to see suppli on an Italian menu.
Will definitely be back to try things we didn't.
Massive favorite! Highly recommend for all occasions
We had a fabulous experience at Pino and would high recommend to Italian foodies.
A great dinner spot - lovely warm setting on a winters evening with hearty food and friendly staff. Highly recommended1
There is a warm glow as you approach this restaurant because of the many candles burning inside. On a cold wet night it beckons you inside. The music was not to my taste and too loud which spoilt the ' glow' factor. However, the food was very good and we were attended to by a generous Italian waiter.
The food and wine was delicious and the service very friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and great music! Will definitely be back next time I visit Sydney.
Amazing again. Thanks Giovanni. My old local will not be happy I’ve found this spot
We live locally & I felt like spoiling my bf on a lovely long boozy lunch. It was incredible in every way. The Manager Giovanni was so fabulous. His recommendation on food & wine was bang on.
We will be returning as after as we can. Love it.
I wish Pino’s was my local. It’s the kind of place I would visit often if it was. The ambience was warm and inviting, perfect for a cosy date or just with friends. The service was caring and friendly - no hipsters here. It felt like how restaurants ought to be - delivering on good service but without the attitude. The food was thoughtful and delicious.
Overall it felt like there was a lot of heart and soul from the kitchen to the floor staff to the environment. I’ll definitely be back and will recommend to my friends.
Amazing Italian! Loved the food and the cozy and warm environment. I will be definitely coming back!
My favorite italian resturant in Sydney: delicius food and great wine!
Great little restaurant in our local area. Nice relaxed atmosphere, not too busy.
My partner ordered a meat dish and wasn't advised by the waiter that it didn't come with any sides, he would have ordered sides if he had known. In saying that we felt like the main dish was a little overpriced as you then had to order sides on top. He went home a little disappointed and hungry.
My meal and our friends pasta meals were lovely, but came out around 5 minutes apart from each other which we found a bit odd.
The weight staff were lovely but were a bit slow and not very attentive.
