Went there to have a pizza, mainly based on the overall very good rating. We were disappointed. They claim to serve 'homemade' and 'fresh' pizza. The base of our pizza was definitely frozen. I asked (the very friendly) waitress. She confirmed that the pizza base...is made in advance, then frozen. In my opinion this cannot be considered 'fresh'. The ingredients of the topping were fresh. We were actually not at their main outlet near the Lighthouse, rather at the one next to PNB.More

We had pizza, penne and chicken tenders that were ok but not extraordinary... Food was something anyone can prepare from one’s kitchen. Worth mentioning though is the very friendly Honeymay - our food server who was all smiles and patient with our orders and requests.

Visited with friends. Place is small so you have to be there a bit early to dine in. Pizzas may take a while to be ready because they make it from scratch --- plus points for thin crust pizza! Despite that, their pizzas are really...good and worth the price.👍They also do takeout; same goes for delivery but if the shop's busy better do the takeout or even better, dine in.More

Don't believe what the maps tell you! From the capitol, start walking towards the lighthouse. Jino's is located on the right side of the National Road near Escalona St. When you get there, you'll be seated in a garden, savoring the smell of pizza being...prepared. I was already hungry when we got there, so good thing the prep time was just right. You order by ringing a small bell beside the house's front door. My wife and I had a 12 inch Hawaiian Pizza and one medium sized Chicken Tenders. The pizza was good! The tenders was just right. I'm not sure if this is the best pizza in the island, but it was this evening. Notes: They offer take out and delivery.More

This was a welcome sight after we had watched the sunset and lingered at Basco Lighthouse. In that area, they were preparing a table for dinner - apparently you can have this arranged to have a "candlelit" dinner just on the grounds - we got...hungry thinking of it. On our way down, we walked past a house blazing with lights, and found out it was a pizzeria. We went in and decided on the spur of the moment to have pizza and pasta to recoup our energy. Cozy surroundings and since there was no crowd, it was a good place to unwind and recharge our inner batteries. I recommend this for a stop, before or after going to the Basco Lighthouse. They also do deliveries.More

Ordered this for delivery. It was surprisingly fast. It tastes good naman but the dough is a bit chewy so we’re not sure if it’s freshly made. We also ordered penne pasta which they only have one kind and wasn’t that good.

This is real pizza, not using fake ingredients and is delicious. Garden setting, very nice owners. Wish we had pizza like this in our hometown. Better than pizza Hut or yellow cab!!

At a reasonable price the pizza and pasta are a true find in the lovely city of Basco. Run by a family with a nice home atmosphere. Finding Jino's is easy just head to the lighthouse and you will pass this fine little restaurant. Reward...yourself you won't be disappointed....More

It is walking distance from where we stayed. They also deliver with a small fee. Menu is only a few pasta, pizza, appetizer and drinks. We ordered two pizzas and one pasta. And boy they were delicious. This is the best pizza in Batanes.

They are located near the Basco Light House, if you are heading to the light house make sure to notice a house selling pizza on your right. It is best to always book a table in advance and pre-order but when we went to do...so we were told that we don't really need too because they weren't expecting a lot of dinners that night. They open in the afternoon till late night. We ordered all meat (2) and a seafood. The biggest size is good for 3-4 pax but I think my companions were really that hungry so they ordered another all-meat. We had couple of beers for each too. PRICE: 2 all-meat, 1 seafood biggest size, 5-6 beers. We paid an estimate of 1,700-2,300php (ESTIMATE)More

Oh yeah!! When you feel so lazy to go out because you're tired after all the trekking, and walking, this place is a life saver! We had our pizzas delivered to where we stayed. I asked them to remove the cheese, and just replace it...with more tomato sauce, and they did. I am very happy that they listen well. It only took them 20 minutes until our order has arrived. We were very happy. Price is just the right amount in my opinion.More

Jino's has the BEST PIZZA in all of Batanes. Arguably even better than most pizza shops in Manila! Take my word for it. GO HERE when in Batanes. + Location is very accessible. You'll pass by this pizza shop going to Basco Lighthouse. You won't...miss it! This place didn't go empty when I was there. (I went to Basco Lighthouse many times so I can tell haha) + The magic happens in a backyard. I guess the most popular backyard in Basco. You'll never think this place offers the best pizza by just looking outside. You have to go in the gate and ask to be seated. I actually think (though not verified) that the family who owns the business are their own kitchen and service crew. + Like Casa Napoli, you have to try Jino's Pepperoni Pizza. I also added an order of Penne Pasta (yup, always hungry) and they were super delicious! 10/10! Add this to your itinerary when visiting Batanes. Jino's will instantly capture your heart (and stomach) with Italian dishes that are both affordable and palatable.More

What a life saver, especially with picky teens just looking for something familiar. We didn't get a chance to eat at the restaurant, but ordered pizza delivery 2x during our stay. The kids enjoyed the Hawaiian and cheese pizzas. Generous size. Above average for price...in the area, but we understand, as pizza ingredients need to be brought to the island after all!More
