It's tucked away in a "don't blink or you'llmiss it" strip center but it's worth finding for delish pizza. They offer mouthwatering combinations of toppings but I went with my usual, pepperoni, mushroom and onion. Cracker thin crust, zesty tomato sauce and generous slices of pepperoni. Sam, our server, was the only employee in the restaurant and boy, was she a trooper. Great personality, cheerful and took great care of my companion and me. Looking forward to next time.
I've been ordering takeout from Pino's for a couple years now and this weekend with my family visiting from out of town was the first time I ever dined in. As always, the food was incredible. There is so much flavor and you can tell the ingredients are fresh. Sundays are 20% off wine bottles which is nice. Please be patient as they are short staffed and service is a little slow, but everyone is very friendly and the food is absolutely worth the wait :)
This may be a “pizza place,” but we didn’t have pizza. My Veal Scallopini was prepared to perfection, tender and juicy with a nice perfectly cooked vegetable medley. Carol’s spaghetti and meat balls came with two large and tasty ones, drenched in a tangy tomato sauce. Our first time, but definitely won’t be our last!
I’ve gone to quite a bit of pizzeria’s in the Englewood area and this is hands down my favorite! It’s such a cute cozy spot, relaxing environment, great service as well. Even has a nice patio area. The Caesar salad is so fresh with the perfect amount of dressing and Parmesan. I usually order the pepperoni pizza too and it always fills me up. Can’t wait to try more on their menu. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food and atmosphere. Pino is wonderful!
Pino’s pizza is by far the best in town. The atmosphere is also refreshing - it feels like a real neighborhood restaurant, not the chains or hip LoDo/Highlands places that are a dime a dozen in the Denver restaurant scene. This is where we go whenever we’re missing the east coast.
Okay, I am giving 5 stars even though my experience is limited. I went here to meet with a friend/business associate to taste wines. That was the main mission. All were on the "by the glass" menu at Pino's Place. So my experience with the wine list is pretty good. Excellent value wines. Great quality at the price point. Better than average especially since many of the places you would expect to be serving you quality wine, aren't. (Advice for everyone: If you don't see the name or brand of the wine on the menu, don't order it. Move on to something you can at least look up on your phone.)Back to Pino's Place. The visit was over lunch. I shared a tossed salad and I don't know what the dressing was, but it was fresh and crisp and the dressing was really good. I don't know if it was home made or not. It was good.The pizza we got was delicious. We got the Diavola and shared it. It was like getting a pizza in Italy or at an Italian Restaurant in other European countries. Thin crust and not like eating a Stateside stomach bomb pizza. And again, it was delicious.I didn't pay the bill but I do remember glancing at the prices and thinking they were quite reasonable.The staff was attentive, polite and good natured. I saw nothing to criticize by the service. Would rate it above average. The atmosphere was very comfortable and pleasant.I don't live in Denver but when I am back up there now and then, this place will come to mind as a great place to get a meal. Maybe I will try something else besides pizza!
Experienced this place for the first time last Thursday and was so impressed that I had to come again today, and bring my wife. The first visit I ordered the shrimp and calamari appetizer and the pappardelle carbonara. The appetizer was generous and very well fried. Lightly crispy and delicious. The pappardelle was some of the most perfect pasta I have eaten, ever. Just firm enough to resist a bite slightly but did not stick in my teeth. You could tell it was fresh, homemade pasta. The sauce and overall flavor was heavenly. I savored every bite.For my second visit I decided to have the Chicken Caccitore. So much flavor, fork tender and I couldn't leave in good conscience without asking for an extra piece of bread to mop up what remained of the amazing sauce.This will be my go to spot for Italian. Sam, my server both visits is an amazing hostess and server. Friendly, personable and very efficiently aware of your dining needs.
I enjoyed this meal very much! More than I thought I would because I'm from New York and I know what good Italian food is supposed to taste like.
Amazing food and service
Hidden gem in a neighborhood of some decent food options. I had the pappardelle con ragu and was astounded, and very please to be able to stretch it into two meals. The house salad was also fantastic with the diverse textures and flavors. Between the two dishes, I was so happy to have such a high quality Italian restaurant a few walkable blocks from my home. I did takeaway but the inside looked clean and vibrant and the staff was very attentive while I waited for my order to be brought over. I had to wait a few moments for it to be finished, and I think 3 people checked on me to make sure I had been helped. This will be my new go-to for guests as I look forward to exploring the menu!
This restaurant is my favorite pizza place and there calamari and marinara is the best I have ever had. We also had the nicest waiter he was perfect and was super sweet
Delicious salad, lentil soup, and Margherita pizza. Super friendly waiter.
Yummy Pizza, and great service.
Love this place. I've been at least a dozen times and have NEVER been disappointed. The food is so delicious. Start with a drink in the bar and a meatballs appetizer. Be sure to consider the special. Finish with a cappuccino. Bon Appétit!
