Wonderful

Really enjoyed our time here. Food was delicious, I wanted to try everything! Server was pleasant enough, though she was busy. My Water stayed filled which is something I watch for everywhere I go. I will definitely be returning when I make my way back!

We went to Pinocchios on a Friday evening and it was packed but that's to be expected as about every place in town was. I've been there several times and there is a good sized menu to choose from but I went with my regular, the Jiminy Cricket sandwich, which is pastrami and Swiss on a sourdough bun with garlic-Parmesan...

Great sandwiches, yummy salads and of course pasta. Fast and friendly service. Reasonable prices. Worth a stop for happy hour drinks and dinner. Nice spot downtown in the middle of everything. Usually busy but with a nice vibe

This is casual dining, good for families, relatively inexpensive, and not bad at all. It is a rather typical Italian style restaurant with decent marinara and a white sauce that was quite good. We had regular baked lasagna, white lasagna and chicken parmesan. All were good. Service was good, prompt and friendly. For good standard family dining, this is a... More

Heard many good things about this place. Brought the whole family here for a birthday celebration. The service and food were good. The restaurant set-up reminded me of a upscale Denny's however. Booth seating available, etc.

Very good food with an Italian bend. Try the Jiminy Cricket sandwich (pastrami and cheese on sourdough with garlic fries) and have a Snowshoe Grizzly Ale (on tap).. You'll thank me later..

Been here a few times now and have to say that though the previous incarnations on this corner were hit and miss, this one has been consistently good. We have never been when it was overly busy but the service has always been excellent. The mainly Italian menu is varied and includes sandwiches and pizza.

This place is awesome. Great food, drinks and service. Great place to meet people for drinks, lunch, dinner or even business. Pizza's are great. The Blanco lasagna is Freaking awesome. ask for extra garlic and red pepper flakes.
