Has very reasonable deals both afternoons and weekday evenings - we however selected from the Chef's Specials for evening mains.

This restaurant is one of my families favourites. We have been coming here years. Always lovely and fresh also reasonably priced. Also the owner is lovely, always makes you very welcome. The menu is also great for kids :)

Great authentic Italian food. They do a great lunch time special menu. We eat here at least 2-3 times a month, wether that's as a couple or with our 3 chidren. The staff are always very attentive. I would always recommend this restaurants to friends & family.

We were disappointed by portion sizes here. We had elected to eat from the 2 courses for £10.95 menu which was restrictive in choice but included dishes that we would have chosen anyway. My breaded mushrooms were 6 half mushrooms with a spoonful of wilting leaves and my lasagne although it tasted lovely was not much bigger than a pack... More

Was a warming welcome by the host. He was really friendly and welcoming. The food arrived within 10 minutes of placing order and tasted really great, one of the best places I've eaten in the centre of Barnsley. I recommend you try, as I didn't know about this place until my partner talked about her friends and family eating here... More

Middle of board pizza restaurant. Nice staff and place to eat but the food was nothing to rave over. Don't get me wrong... It was nice, but it didn't say wow! I did have garlic bread and pepperoni pizza but still. You be the judge!

My partner took me here on a Friday night and the food was absolutely gorgeous. A couple of weeks later I came here with my mother inlaw and her mother at lunchtime. The pasta dish I ordered was ment to have chilli in it but it just tasted like a tin of tomatoes with overcooked pasta, my mother inlaw ordered... More

My partner and I visited Barnsley for a football game and ventured into Barnsley centre looking for food. After searching for half an hour for anything resembling decent we settled on Pinocchios and were happy with our choice. Good lunch time menu, reasonably priced and specials board when inside. I had a special made chicken, tuna and pepperoni pizza and... More

I do really like Pinnochios but the décor is very outdated, it could do with a big revamp. The 2 courses for £10.95 evening offer is good and the lunchtime menu is also very good value. I have never eaten from the main menu as if I am spending 'bigger money' I prefer to dine somewhere more 'fancy' but the... More
