Pino's Pizzeria Ristorante, Sydney

49 Willoughby Road,
Crows Nest NSW 2065 Map

Saturday night in Crows Nest is always good fun. Willoughby Road is buzzing as the restaurants fill up and this Saturday was no different. We had no plans, we hadn't booked so we thought we'd take pot luck.

We ended up at Pino's, an Italian restaurant near the to end of Willoughby Road. Pino's has been in Crows Nest since the seventies and has recently been refurbished. We decided not to have starters and I had Funghi Ravioli in Mushroom & Tomato which was homemade ravioli filled with ricotta & wild mushrooms in a cream, mushroom, chilli & fresh garlic sauce. The pasta was firm and al-dente and the sauce was really tasty.

For dessert I had the good old traditional Tiramisu. It was very good, but I would liked a little more alcohol in it. My wife ordered a Red Wine Poached Pear Pizza from the specials. It was just as it sounds - a pizza base scattered with red wine poached pears, spinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon with a dollop of ice-cream in the centre. It was great, and if it is ever on the menu when you go there, you must have it!

All in all, it was a very enjoyable and tasty meal and the service was very friendly and prompt. I love Italian food and this was very good. I'm certain that we will be going back.
