Award winning Pinoli Restaurante brings true Italian fare to Puerto Rico through the use of recipes passed down for generations. The use of fresh ingredients in every dish only serve to enhance the flavors, making a meal at Pinoli a true Mediterranean experience.


Pinoli not only serves artisanal authentic Italian fare, but each dish is a gourmet meal. Some examples include ravioli filled with fresh ricotta Pinoli and white truffle oil, Fettuccine with Mascarpone and prosciutto di Parma, and Veal Scaloppine with fontina cheese, arugula, dried tomatoes and White wine. The dessert list is a long one, with offerings including the traditional tiramisu and pears in wine and Gelato. The menu changes weekly according to what is fresh, bringing a piece of regional Italy to each plate. They work with local vendors and have been doing so since before the "organic movement" was popular.

Pinoli Restaurante is a popular grill that happens to specialize in Italian cuisine. As far as service and setting, you can expect the formality to be informal. This location serves food for both dinner and lunch, so give it a try.


Dark hard wood floors with matching furniture lined with white table linens, and bottles of fine wine lining the walls give the private dining room of Pinoli Restaurante a refined feel without being pretentious. Meanwhile, the main dining room features tiled floors and Italian inspired artwork. Since it is such a small venue, they recommend reservations.


Pinoli Restaurante is located in Hato Rey, a neighborhood near Guaynabo; it's to the south-southeast of Old San Juan.

Vacationers can combine their restaurant visit with excellent local sightseeing options by visiting one of the area's many nearby attractions, such as Bosque Urbano De San Patricio.
