“Feels like Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

This is a charming and authentic Italian experience. The restaurant certainly feels like a family-run italian establishment. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is warm and informal. I have eaten here several times and the quality of the food is consistently excellent. Prices are reasonable and choice is good.

“No lie. Pinocchio is excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Definitely one of the best, if not the best, Italian meals I have eaten. Calves liver cooked to perfection. Washed down with an inexpensive, but very nice, bottle of Pinot Grigio. Amaretto cheesecake to die for. 3 courses for me & 2 for the wife plus the wine for £56, fantastic value. Staff, attentive, polite, courteous and knowledgeable. Recommend a visit.

“Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

I bought a deal from Live Elite £14.00 for two people for a pasta or pizza each,plus a glass of wine.
We visited the restaurant last night and enjoyed both the food and atmosphere. The staff were extremely helpful.
My husband had a minestrone soup, spaghetti bolognese and a desert, but I just had the pizza which I found was very filling. We shared a mixed salad.
The meal with our deal was very reasonable, and we feel we may return.

“Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff and ok food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I found although the food could be better, with starters, mains and three alcoholic drinks it came to £40 which on a Saturday night is excellent.

Lovely atmosphere, seating far enough away to keep out of other peoples' conversations and fast enough service you weren't left waiting for too long.
