Great food, friendly service.

We enjoyed some tasty pizza and a nice bottle of wine. Very friendly service from all staff. Would recommend this place.

My wife and I selected this place randomly as we had just arrived by train from Naples. The owner welcomed us reluctantly dressed in scruffy, dirty shorts and a sweat covered tee shirt. He was unshaven and dismissive. We SHOULD have left then! We were really hungry so we decided to stay as there were a few people eating in... More

Shockingly poor in every way - it's the kind of place Gordon Ramsay would take on to turn it around. Food was below average, waitresses were terrifying, our order arrived in a random order, it wasn't cheap, there were mosquitoes everywhere. Couldn't wait to get out of the place. Only good thing about it was the Wifi!

We have visited the Amalfi Coast every year for the past 27years and we always go to Pinocchio Restaurant in Salerno at least 3 times each year. Rudolfo and Paola have become good friends. The sea food is magnifico and they are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Restaurant Pinocchio for a great experience. Richard and Deborah

Were here twice during our stay. Nice staff, the boss speaks English :-). The best selection of different pasta/pizza in town? Loved the bolognese and carbonara!! As a starter/apetizer you get some kind of bruschetta - free. Molto deliziosa!! ... very tasteful. The red wine of the house is great (which is not granted). The restaurant has a largeand nice...

We dived in here because it was pouring with rain - which meant that there were few other customers, but even so service was patchy and we got the impression that the waiters were busy doing something out back (watching football?) Had we read earlier Trip Advisor reviews I would probably have gone for the seafood rather than the pizza... More

We stopped here because I liked the position of the restaurant .Rudolfo came out ,his girls rearranged tables for us, they couldn't have been more helpful. The food was awesome, plenty of it and Rudolfo always had suggestions, several tastings on the house and plenty of laughter. When we left it was like we were family.

We were trying to spend time in a restaurant waiting for our 11:30 train, decided on stopping here for a drink, we then spoke to the owner sweetest guy ever, offered us this dish on the house which was a combination I d never have had and it was awesome, try their salmon salad, it's the best.
