Review: Pino’s Italian Grille and Pizzeria

Deadra Miller, staff writer


Pino’s Italian Grille and Pizzeria is owned and operated by a local family that has at least two other restaurants within 50 miles of Dillwyn, Virginia. Pino’s has a friendly atmosphere where everyone knows everybody, so it is hard to hide if you want a quiet meal with your significant other.

Serving fresh and handmade goods, Pino’s definitely gives you what you pay for in a meal.

I ordered the $10.99 cheese ravioli. The dish came with eight ravioli, each the size of my palm and stuffed to perfection. The homemade sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese covering each ravioli made the dish smell extraordinary.

The lasagna and chicken parmesan meal was great and the tomato sauce did not drown the crispiness of the chicken breast.

Having children that are picky eaters is not an easy task for any parent, especially in a restaurant. My younger son, who chose the children’s meal of spaghetti and meatballs, loved every bite and drip of sauce that came with it.

Since my children had pizza earlier in the week, I limited them to ordering anything but pizza off the children’s menu, which led to my older son ordering chicken tenders and french fries.

In short, Pino’s Italian Grille and Pizzeria is flavorful, great quality and, to quote my youngest son, “cheesy.”

If you are ever in Dillwyn and want a great meal , Pino’s is the place.

At 15498 N James Madison Highway, Dillwyn, Virginia, Pino’s is hard to miss.

It is open every day except Tuesdays and some holidays. The hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.; Sundays 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.
