Went there with a group of friends. Service was very friendly and efficient. The pasta is okay, but wouldn't recommend the pizza at all. The base is tasteless and hard, not better than the ones from the freezer section at coles. Not in a rush to go back to Pinocchios at all.

The food was good but expensive and the service was very poor. It took us 30 mins to even get a drink! Yes it was busy but it's not worth the expense for such slow service.

We visited here last night with a group of 14. Whilst the service was ok the pizzas were terrible. The base was clearly store bought and was very hard. Everyone who ordered pizza left at least half of it. Very disappointed :(

Busy Sunday night, we order a Tomato Bruschetta as a starter cause we thought the steaks would take time since it was well-done. For a italian restaurant I was expecting more from the Bruschettas (very dry bread and could add some cheese on it). We order one Eye Fillet Steak and one New York Sirloin, both well-done and sauces on... More

This is the fourth visit here on the invitation of others. Unable to talk them out of it as I knew what to expect. Most recent was a birthday dinner with over 35 people. Restaurant itself is lovely, clean, though extremely noisy and the staff are very friendly. The toilet facilities are also clean. The food unfortunately is well presented... More

Visited here in a Saturday evening, although it was quite busy and we had no booking, they were very welcoming and found a table for 4 of us. The food was really good and prices very reasonable. Will be visiting again.

This place has great seafood, particularly the Balmain Bugs, but the service for us and the people around us, this time, was obviously boring for the staff. We had booked a table and I said that it was a special birthday and I wanted a good table. We were at the back of the place and in a black hole... More

Had the most unwelcoming experience at Pinocchio's tonight. Came here to have dessert after a lovely meal with my daughter. Asked the waitress if we could have a table for coffee and dessert and was shocked to hear that they would only do it this time since it was not full house. It felt like a slap in the face... More
