Lovely Italian restaurant with good choice of meals. We had a set menu meal at £9.75. This gave plenty of choice on the starter main and desserts. The portion size was not scrimped on at all and cooked just right. Service was also very good attentive but not imposing. Worth booking as it did get busy. Restaurant was used by... More

My family and I recently took a trip to Brighton to meet some friends. When it came to dinner we were in search of a reasonable priced Italian restaurant suitable for families and Pinocchio definitely fits that criteria. The food was very tasty, the staff were polite and friendly and the prices were very reasonable, all of which you would... More

Probably one of the worst restaurant experiences in quite awhile. After getting the first, and the second part of the order wrong….the waiter decided to contradict my daughter (I had gone to the loo). After that; he just spent the rest of the meal glaring at us while another waiter took over. We then had to endure the chav couple... More

I was recently visiting friends in Brighton who suggested we visit Pinocchio's for lunch. It was a busy afternoon, but within minutes we were seated on a table outside where we could enjoy the sun. We chose the 3 course deal for £9.95, which was an excellent price considering the high quality of the food. The garlic and herb mushroom... More

My boyfriend and I fancied pizza last night, but not takeaway, we'd never been to Pinocchio's so thought we would give it a try. We arrived at the restaurant, the waiter didn't even greet us properly, just simply pointed at a table near and put some menus down. We asked to sit outside, so he walked us out again and... More

Visited here on a Weds evening, great food off the 2 course/3 course menu. No service charge on bill, so naturally left a tip. Went back on the Friday, again great food and low behold a 10% service charge appears on bill. Never left a tip. Would have given it 5 stars if we hadn't encountered the sneaky service charge....

My husband and I visited for the lunch deal in July, the waitress didn't speak any English and no staff seem to know where the tables are located so we kept getting other peoples mains, ice creams and dishes brought to our table in error totally unprofessional and laughable! The food average I could make a better lasagne and portions... More

This is not the place for hi class food but what you do get is really good pizza and pasta at prices nobody could complain about. I had the fixed price menu and had mushrooms as a starter then an American hot pizza. Really nice pizza with a thin and crispy base, no soggy bottom here. The staff were really... More

Enjoyed the good value two course lunch menu a couple of weeks ago. The restaurant was busy as graduation day but service quick and efficient and the food tasty.
