Pinos Pizza & Pasta - Bringing Italy to you

I'm surprised that this place has not been blogged a lot by foodies in PJ/KL. I was led to this simple restaurant after church by a friend who found out on this place through his dad. It's quite a gem, really. You won't get "WOW" pizza & pasta, but for the price you're paying, it's really worth your every penny!

Located on the ground floor of Wisma Thrifty, right opposite Hilton Hotel Petaling Jaya, this corner restaurant serves a good variety of pizza & pasta. As it's not an enclosed restaurant, it can get slightly warm during the day when the sun shines through the glass windows.

Variety of Thin-Crust Pizza from RM10.00 - RM15.00
It's a medium-sized pizza - enough to fill you if you're not a big eater. At least you won't feel "jelak" after finishing the whole pizza. Those who need to have more food in each meal will not find this sufficient, so go for an additional serving of pasta & you'll be more than satisfied :) All below RM25.00 - it's possible!

Tony's Special (RM15.00/pizza)
Sauce, Mozzarella Cheese, Chicken/Beef Sausages, Chili Padi, Anchovies, Capers, & Virgin Olives/Oil
Bite into the spicy chili padi in EVERY mouthful...eek! Those who enjoy spicy food may fall in love with this variant of pizza - so localized! 

Siciliana Pizza (RM12.00/pizza) - no olives
Mozzarella Cheese, Pepperoni, Chicken/Beef, Olives (opted out)
This is like a no-frills pasta for meat-lovers :) 

Siciliana Pizza (RM12.00/pizza) 

Super Special (RM15.00/pizza)
Mozzarella Cheese, Chicken/Beef, Mushrooms, Capsicums, Seafood, Pineapple, Garlic, Olives, Anchovies
This is like an all-in-one pizza. So Malaysian...So PerutBesi! Ahahahaha....PerutBesi, truly Malaysian :D I enjoyed the burst of flavours - sweet, salty, slightly sourish (sauce)

Calzone 'the big sock' (RM15.00/calzone)
Mozzarella Cheese, Chicken/Beef, Mushrooms, Capsicums, Garlic, Olives
Pizza toppings wrapped in pizza crust...haha...that's the summary ;)

Tony's Special Ala Mama (RM15.00/serving)
Salsa Rossa, Chicken/Beef Sausages, Anchovies, Capers, Garlic, Chili Padi & Olives
I actually enjoyed this...perhaps it's because the tomato-based sauce was really flavourful. It could do with slightly more herbs though :) 

Spaghetti Bolognese (RM12.00/serving)
Special Home-Made Sauce with Chicken/Beef
Looks good to me! But this is a very basic pasta...Vary Pasta have a slightly different level added to its bolognese, which I fancy as well. 

Spaghetti Aglio Olio Seafood (RM15.00/serving)
Simple spaghetti with olive oil dressing & seafood. No idea who this tasted since I didn't order it. But it sure looks delicious :) 

This certainly won't be the last time I'll pop-by here for a meal! I'll be back....

ohoh.... should try out their pizza and pasta someday since it's within PJ area. Thanks for the review! :D

@HenRy LeE: Should try ;) It's not the best, but for the price you're paying, it's good! I reckon Vary Pasta in DJ has better pastas with similar price range, but the Carbonara/Cream Sauce here is certainly better than Vary Pasta's. At least it doesn't have that unpleasant milk smell...so I reckon Pinos really uses cream! :D
