This is a family favorite. This is old school Italian food. Home cooked, made to order, comes out piping hot. You will always see Pinky himself and you will enjoy yourself. Only serve a couple nights a week, weekly specials. Priced just right and cooked perfect. Nothing fancy, just grear food for many years.

Towny bar/restaurant that feels like it has been there forever. Everybody knows everybody else but friendly to newbies also. We have had dinner there a few times, lunch also. Burgers are awesome, can eat at the bar or in the dining room. Friendly atmosphere, definitely not upscale but clean, can sit outside in nice weather on the roped off sidewalk.... More

Checked out Wednesday nite special, chicken parm, and it was great. Italian bread, house salad, ziti and chicken parm all for $8.99 . Very good sauce. It was all good! Large portion, took some home. Place is small and hasn't changed in at least 40 yrs, if not longer. Bartender/ waitress very friendly and helpful

Going into Pinky's is like stepping back in time. Many locals know this is the place for excellent food and service...their specials are very good. We sometimes get their food to go a couple times a week but definitely once a week. The interior is old school and not a big dining room but the food is a can't miss.... More

We've been to most of the restaurants in Geneva, so many of which are closed on Mondays. We thought that we would give Pinky's a try. The tables are in the back, after you walk past the bar. The menu is very limited and as we attempted to order items, we found that several of the items on the menu... More

WORSR PLACE EVER!! While waiting on a table I was kicked out for eating a granola bar. Not to mention I was in shorts and it was 38 degrees outside.

I'd never been here before,but my guess is that this place hasn't changed too much in say, the last 50 years. It looks and smells old. And I don't mean that in a bad way. The only beer on tap is Milwaukee's Best. I'd never seen that before and I've been drinking in bars for 35 years! The guys in... More
