We had a really good meal (two antipasti, one pizza and one meat course), followed by a hand-made tiramisú. Each dish was great. The services was also really nice.

Risotto di mare was good enough, but pasta was better. We ordered 1 Risotto di mare, 1 Pappardelle alla porcini, 2 Cocacola zeros and we paid 31.30€. Nice and neat people. We went at 19:15 and place was just opening.

This family run business was a highlight of our holiday and that was due to the quality of food that one associates with Italy as well as the warm welcome and genuine appreciation for your custom. We enjoyed the experience so much that we went back twice, something that I had been keen not to do with such a wealth... More

The place is obviously very popular & we had some tasty food here (I would recommend the grilled seafood) on a busy Saturday night in Salerno. The maitre d', however, was somewhat overbearing, dismissing a couple of our stated meal choices as not what we'd REALLY enjoy and throwing down, with what appeared disdain, the credit card offered at the...

We traveled to Salerno because the town offers easy access to the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Pinnochios Restaurant is directly parallel to the beautiful marina and Bay. It was recommended by the staff at Hotel Plaza because the food is delicious and the owners and staff are so gracious. We found that Pinnochios had down home cooking and they gave... More

The food is just average. Nothing to rave about.. The only thing that's good is the mozzarella, it's juicy and a must try when in Salerno.. If you find a better restaurant serving this cheese then go there.

We discovered this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon when everyone else was closed. The owner and his family were gracious & generous. The owner became fast friends with my husband and teenage sons when they discovered their common love for motorcycles. They had great time sharing stories and pictures. We had his cheese sticks appetizer, pizza, ice cream dessert and... More

A slap-up feed of delicious, very fresh seafood in a great ambience. We recently returned for the first time in 14 years and weren't disappointed. It's very much a case of "where the locals hang", so defintely a place for people-watching. The steady stream of regulars all seem to be on first name terms with the owner (and he with... More

We were in Salerno for 1 night and found this interesting little place on the sea front area. My husband was attracted by the large tv as the Euro football was on. The waiter was great with recommendations but the food itself was average. I had chicken which was greasy, I'm not sure what part of the chicken it was,... More
