Too big portion sizes not worth the money they charge. Very expensive. I got an entrée as I heard their portions are large. So the calamari and salad is basically 4 full size squids cut up with a burnt sauce. And a tiny little bit of green. Where was the salad? It was like a slaughterhouse of calamari. The waitress...

The good: Most of the service is amazing. The waiter we had and the manager were welcoming, warm and lovely. The waitstaff are Italian, and it is like being welcomed into a big Italian family dinner. We were originally sat inside but they asked if we wanted to move outside when a table became available. There was also no waiting... More

Went to Pinocchio's on our trip around Australia and were very impressed with both the food and service. Asked to have pork belly main as an entree to share between the four of us and were advised the beef brisket would be easier to share so ordered that instead. Talk about mouth-watering! Came with chips and home-made coleslaw and was... More

The prosciutto and mushroom pizza is excellent with thin crest and generous amount of topping. However the smoked pork belly is bad. The helping is huge and generous. But the bottom half of belly is totally dried out and hard like cardboard. I notice similar problem with the beef brisket at the next table.

Generous, delicious meals. Friendly staff. The place gets very busy so booking in advance is a good idea. Probably some of the best value in Exmouth where dining out is generally expensive due to the remoteness.

Great - busy with both campers and locals having a good time and enjoying great food. The owner and staff were excellent and service great. Food was lovely: huge portions of seafood spaghetti for me!! Also, interestingly, they have a choice of smoke-house meats smoked on the premises so so can choose from either excellent Italian or some lovely brisket... More

Went here for an Italian meal after a big day out swimming with the whalesharks craving a big filling meal. Definitely got that but ended up with the smoked meat deal that they do! It's hard to resist if you like your bbqs and you like meat! On offer they had veal ribs, pork ribs, pork belly and beef brisket.... More

Excellent food- well priced and welcoming to all its customers. The Gelati ice cream was excellent. Enjoyed by the locals so it must be good.

Massive serves of perfectly cooked meat served with chips, coleslaw and a pint of beer... what more could you ask for? Great pasta and home-made gelati that's what! Throw in fast service with a smile... Highly recommended!
