“Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Pinocchio's is a fun place to go with a few friends, have a few drinks and eat a few goodies. I like the bar area. Although it's a little noisy at times, they have happy hour specials that mimic some of their larger dinner menu at a slightly discounted price and rather than ordering 3 sliders I can order one at a time. I really recommend the meatball slider - Delicious!
Service can be a little unprofessional. The servers aren't always experienced and it shows. On the other hand, they are friendly and make you feel welcome.

“Can't take more than a group of 5”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

We walked in with a group of 10, the restaurant manager could not accommodate us ... What's worse is that he dint even genuinely try!

Place smells of dirty feet.. Never got to try the food

“Fresh sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I loved my sandwich. The bread was so fresh and the serving for a small sandwich was quite big. I especially like the zucchini sausage soup. The best!! The service was fast and friendly. We go to this place a lot.

“Nice, casual setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Friendly, quick and efficient service with a good mix of customers. An enjoyable downtown restaurant overlooking Main Street. Not a huge menu, pasta was so-so, but the sauce was great, and everything reasonably priced. The atmosphere is pleasant, but we sat upstairs and it was a bit noisy.

“Good fare in downtown Merced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is one of the better places to eat if you are down town, main street Merced. It is
a casual dining option with pizza, sandwiches and salads. The pizza has a cracker crust.
Service was friendly, food good and prices moderate, a pizza is $13, a chicken sandwich $ 9.
There aren't a lot of options in downtown Merced. Pinocchio's seems to be a favorite with the locals and it is located on the little square.
