Last minute booking saved me!

Booked in a panic last minute for a group of 10, in the end we ended up turning up as a thirteen in total, but staff were very accomodating and managed to seat us all together despite it being very busy. This was such a relief and we were so grateful. I love the traditional Italian set up with... read more

We ate at Pinocchios after a graduation ceremony on Tuesday. We booked initially for 6 but needed to add one more to our reservation which was no problem at all when we rang up earlier in the day. We booked for 7pm but arrived early at 6:30pm and were seated straight away by the friendly staff. Can not fault this... More

Absolutely lovely place, staff were so friendly and accommodating. Lovely to the children. Absolutely beautiful food - we had pizzas, spaghetti bolognaise, lasagne and a veggie dish - all were lovely. The offer smaller meals for children under 12 which is great, what was left of our 2 year olds pizza was boxed up for us to take home. Really... More

Its very friendly and has a nice atmosphere.The value and quality offered is amazing at £8.95 for 2 courses or £10.95 for 3 courses. For this you can choose a starter/dessert and main (2 course)...

The rest of the girls agreed so we booked a table for 7.30. What a good job we did as when we sat down and was tucking in to our beautiful meal the queue... More

My daughter and I booked a table for 6pm and on arriving at the restaurant they couldn't find our booking but we were on an 'overflow'. We were seated and the restaurant was certainly busy with a good buzz and the staff worked quickly and efficiently. We both had the three course menu for £11.95 and the food we had... More

Great atmosphere in the restaurant and really nicely themed with Italian artwork and Pinocchio of course. Food is excellent in both taste and value. The set menu of a selection of starters and then any pizza or pasta is very reasonably priced. The pasta is always fresh and tastes great.

This is a great and therefore busy restaurant run by an Italian family. The food is excellent value - you can do 'cheap deals' from about £5 or can 'upgrade' and enjoy superb home cooked fish and meat specialities from the extensive menu.. Pasta is always fresh and hot, house wine very 'more-ish', good veggie choices and a great classic... More

It was so busy and very difficult to get and pay our bill. The service was excellent, the food was served almost before we got our drinks. The prices are very fair. I just feel they made additional staff considering it was a Thursday night. I cannot imagine what a weekend is like.
