We were going to see a concert at the Theatre Royal in the evening and wanted a nice meal beforehand. Looking around the area near the theatre, we picked Pinocchio as we liked the look of it and Italian food is usually good. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent with a waiter taking our food order and when... More

We went for lunch today with our two small children for a birthday treat for our daughter who has just turned 5. The food was superb, fresh tasting. Lovely salad bar. Portions are very generous and the children's portions are big and excellent value, we have visited this restaurant many times as we are local and we always find the... More

The food at Pinocchio was okay - definitely didn't seem to be authentic Italian but was good enough for something warm to eat on a cold day. The service wasn't great - 3 tables were served in the 20 minutes that we waited for our mains and it was only then noticed by our server who asked us to remind... More

Always had a good meal here and the lunch menu is good value for the money. The service can be a bit slow as it is very often packed out.

We came to Brighton for the weekend, arrived quite late (9.00pm) so decided to find somewhere nice to eat. We liked the look of Pinocchio, there was a lot of choice and the prices seemed more than reasonable. The woman who gave us our table barely smiled at us and showed us a table near her and just put down... More

The food here is delicious. It's owned by the same people as Donatello, in Brighton's Lanes, & is pretty much the same menu, though with the occasional variation when it comes to what is served with the main courses, ie, on the Saltimboca Alla Romana: Donatello serve mashed potatoes, Pinocchio serve small, saute style roast potatoes. So, if you love... More

We visited them on a busy Saturday evening,we found table immidiately (it was early but really busy) but we had to wait exactly half! hour for some pasta and an empty dish (which was for the self service salad) ! In the end we had to pay a surprise service fee which was 85p which was not mentioned by anyone... More

My boyfriend and I turned up for an evening meal with no booking but got a table immediately. The staff were very friendly and efficient and there was a really nice atmosphere in the restaurant. We both ordered pizza which were big sizes, maybe a little bit too cheesy for me but my boyfriend loved his. Good coffee and a... More
