Too expensive

I received a gift certificate to Pinocchios and thought two of us could have dinner and pay a little extra after the dollar amount of the certificate was met. Dinner for two with dessert and wine for one was very pricey. Food was good. Service was good. But we will not be going back at those prices.

Stopped in for dinner. Sat outside on a nice evening. Excellent choices on the menu. I couldn't decide what I wanted. Our waiter Andy was great. Everything was good except the Veal Marsala. It was a little bland, not much flavor & the sauce a bit watery. The veal was a little tough. I would like to try the pizza... More

We went Pinocchio's last week only to be disappointed. Been there many times, but this time I took an ole grade school friend from the 50's. It's really a nice cozy place and to eat good Italian fare but they dropped the ball this time. We had a assorted seafood w/ clams,mussels,and shrimp over fettuccine pasta. It was cold !!... More

A friend and I went here tonight and the food was just awful. I ordered a Special -- some sort of crepes with chicken. There were two little crepes with some sort of bland filling inside with no chicken, unless it was pureed, and a watery alfredo sauce. My friend ordered grouper which was way undercooked. Both dinners were way... More

Scratch Italian food. Creative. Great wine list...Our family of 5 had wine, appetizers salads and dinner for $139 and that included a 20% tip! We are already planning our next trip. Comfortable casual dining with UNBELIEVABLE. ..food. Really...try it.

I can't believe this place is minutes away and I'm just discovering how delicious this pizza is. I am very picky with pizza, as an Italian raised in new england ( known for good pizza) I have yet to find a pizza I truly enjoyed in authenticity, quality, and taste. This pizza is definitely worth trying, as well as the... More
