Went for dinner

The food is very nice and good size portions but the only downfall is we had to wait over an hour for the food and with kids it was a bit difficult.

I love eating here as it is a Family owned Restaurant and they are very friendly and generous. The food is great and it is always busy and you need to book beforehand. I have had a birthday celebration here and they go out of their way to help you. Highly recommended.

The first couple of times we had a very good experience, nice food and good service. The other 3 or 4 times at Pinnocchio´s were a nightmare! They mention they have gluten free pasta and usually they run out of it so it´s not always available. If you ask garlic bread with the food, keep dreaming... you´ll finish eating the... More

A small group of us returned here recently for dinner. I hadn't been here for 3 years or so and decided to give it a go as we were looking for byo, in particular. Can't complain about the service which was very friendly and attentive. We shared a tasty pizza for entree while we all ordered differing mains. The penne... More

This is my second visit, found the food and service first time round average but thought I'd give it another try 6 months later. Busy restaurant with slow service. Good sized portions. The starters were good especially the calamari but average quality mains. The NY Sirloin was requested medium but came well done it tasty dry and the peppercorn sauce... More

Went to this restaurant twice now and I love it! The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is great. You can also bring your own bottle of wine which is a plus. The food is delicious! I even asked if I could bring my leftovers home with me because it was so good :)

Just ate awesome bugs for mere $35. There were 7 halves (3.5 bugs) with Penne pasta drenched in delicious garlic, creamy sauce. I have no idea these bugs taste so good! or may be their chef knows how to make them best. Highly recommended.

Our party of 4 arrived at 6pm on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly and given water for the table. We all enjoyed our entrees and mains. My husband and I had the eye fillet with diane sauce. It was the most tender steak I've ever had and all for the bargain price of $27.90. Served with baby potatoes... More
