If you like Italian food, this is not for you. Second rate food, tired surroundings. There are much better places to eat within a few minutes walk.

Pinocchios is really authentic--the decor has been the same for years,but the familiarity is what takes us back regularly.The pizzas are really delicious,and the staff so friendly and welcoming.There is a good atmosphere,which we and our friends appreciate.

Authentic Italian it may be , but it needs updating.Plastic tablecloths and old salt and pepper pots, come on its 2014. Pizza was hot, but bland and a bit tasteless. We wont go again, we will wait for a table at SOHO next door.

Scaffolding on the outside but still open.The service was very quick,maybe too quick as it did not give you time to take it leisurely,maybe because it was not too busy. good value but average Italian fare

Also the prices are very reasonable, and you get more for your £ than at pizza express across the road (which we also went to) we found the pizzas great, and they can change it to what you want, add...

Lovely friendly welcome from so many staff as soon as we sat down and before we even ordered!!! Food choices were great and I loved the steaks and deserts. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff.
