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

Located right on the seafront and close to the old town, Pinocchio quickly became our favourite during a recent stay in Salerno. Everything we ate there was delicious - meats, fish, antipasti, pasti, pizza and the best roast vegetables ever! Puddings all home made and just TOO tempting! Food and house wine all excellent value. The wonderful Rudolfo, who runs... More

On our way back from the marina, we were starving and searching for a place to have dinner. We were fortunate to find one not too far on the main boulevard that offered a special deal at 25 euros with wine and water for several courses. At first, we were concerned since they seemed to be slow to secure our... More

The waiter was very friendly and I really enjoyed my meal of chef's pasta with seafood. My son's pizza had good crust and toppings but it was burnt so that affected his level of satisfaction. Service was ok but a bit disorganized. All in all a fine experience and I would go back. Just not out of this world.

There's a reason this place has been open since 1973. One night in Salerno, there were 12 of us walking by this restaurant and we took a look at the menu from the sidewalk. Rudolfo, the owner, was seated at one of the street side tables and told us with such confidence, that if we didn't like the food, then... More

Had a great fruti de mare, with amazing fresh clams! Cherry Tomatoes were bursting with flavor. Good house white, kept it simple and everything was up to par! Right on the main promenade in Salerno.
