Steve Pinau (born 11 March 1988) is a French footballer.

Pinau, a French youth international, started his career with Monaco, making two appearances in Ligue 1. He signed for Genoa on a four-year contract, but was almost immediately loaned to Hibernian.[1][2] Genoa also paid Monaco €560,000[3] as training compensation.

Pinau made his debut for Hibs as a late substitute in a 1–1 draw at Inverness on 23 August 2008. He was restricted to substitute and reserve team appearances for Hibs, as he struggled to displace established forward Steven Fletcher, Derek Riordan and Colin Nish.[4] His only goal for Hibs was scored in a 4–3 defeat against Greenock Morton in the Scottish League Cup.[5]

FC Lugano, the sister club of Geona, signed the French forward on loan for the 2009–10 season.[6] After half year with Lugano, he was loaned to AC Arles-Avignon.[7]
