“Fun Pizza Place Downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

If your looking for a fun place to eat on a Friday night, this is a good option. Great variety of pizzas, pastas and other dishes. Service is a little slow during peak hours but if you have the time, it's worth the wait. Great "pub" like atmosphere with a full bar. Worth a look.

“yummmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Always great food here. Busy place, so get here early for lunch. Pizza is excellent! Pasta cooked perfectly. My only complaint is the iced tea--I don't think it is fresh brewed-which is a must for me.

“GREAT PLACE TO HAVE DINNER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I love this place. It is casual enough to enjoy yourself but the food is not casual. It is like a 4-star restaurant without the suit and tie attire. The staff is very helpful if there are questions about the menu. Pricing is very fair and you always get enough food to take some home for lunch the next day. Would definitely recommend.

The food portions are very large, and very tasty.
The bar is one of the best in Merced.
Friendly staff, and very accommodating.
Love those Pinocchio's.

“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.
