Wonderful food, had a very excellent Chicken Cesar Salad, kids loved their pasta. The Gelato was delicious, and they had lots of unusual flavors such as salted caramel, peppermint bark, and blackberry merlot. Service was great, waitress was super friendly. Will definitely return!

We read several reviews of this restaurant and are pleased to say that the service was very good, even though it was our waiters first night, the noise level was OK and the food was delicious. The wine list is very satisfactory.

If you live in Merced you know there isn't much to do there, if you are looking for a great restaurant, that too is challenging. Pinnochios opened in the last couple of years and I think it is here to stay. Our family likes to go here before or after we see a movie or just for a meal out.... More

The white sauce lasagna I had there was good, but a little pricey. It came with 2 small pieces of bread, but no salad, for about $14. My son had a pizza with chicken & artichoke that he said was good. My husband ordered a roast beef sandwich, which was pretty plain and definitely nothing spectacular. It came with fires... More

Everytime I visit Pinnochio's I am struck by how attentive the waiters/waitresses are - can we sit by the window/can you split the salad/could we have a refill on our drink? Whatever your request they are super agreeable and friendly. Their salads/soups/sandwiches are delicious and the pizza the best. They have a ice cream counter with gelato and I love... More

It's clearly a popular celebration restaurant for students, families and colleagues. Expect a loud, rowdy environment. Downstairs is a sports bar feel. Great food at decent prices (not cheap, not expensive). Friendly service. We started with a garden salad and loved the jalapenos kick in it. The pizza was awesome - amazing crust! We got the J Law Special, and... More
