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.

Just love it there. The best outside of Italy and New York. New Jersey too. The perfect place for a date or just a good old dinner night with friends or family.

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
