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

We really enjoy this restaurant for both the dishes and the staff. Great and interesting wine list, entree's change frequently with some interesting and tasty specials. If you need a reason to go, it's the gelatto's which are home made and outstanding. The balsamic and pistachio are both as good as anything I've had in Europe. Tracy is a great... More

My husband and I have traveled to Tuscany several times, where family-owned trattorias were our go-to places. Pinocchio's is such a place. It's a husband-and-wife operation--Tracy is the hostess, and Giovanni is the chef--with the charm and intimacy that only a family's investment can provide. Every Thursday, they offer half-price bottles of wine. We've eaten here three times since we... More

If you want great Italian food - this is the place. The chef is from Italy and presents traditional Italian food with an American twist. Service is attentive and you immediately feel welcome when you walk in the door. For dessert, the gelato is hand made in a variety of flavors. And if you like pizza, be sure to try... More
