Pinocchio’s nose grows when he does not tell the truth and I am afraid that the 150 or so reviewers that gave this place a full house must have had their nose grow a little bit when rating this place. Don’t get me wrong it was not bad but just average, however it earned an extra star from me for its great value and enormous dishes! Worth the visit in not so attractive Lille!

What a lovely little restaurant. Themed on Pinocchio, as the name suggests, with lots of posters, Books, comics and marionettes around the walls. Staff were friendly and welcoming, and it had a nice atmosphere. I went just after opening, and a number of tables were already taken, and the stream of customers was constant whilst and was in there. Many appeared to be regulars, as they were welcomed by the staff as you would with friends.
The pizzas seemed to be very popular, but I tried the steak with the various sides. Having seen the photos on Trip Advisor the sides came as no surprise to me, although having two types of potato and tagliatelle carbonara with a steak seemed slightly odd, but the carbonara was good, and the steak was cooked as requested (rare), and was tender and juicy. The amount of food meant as was too full for a dessert, which was a shame as I wanted to try their Tiramisu. Give it a try if you are ever in Lille.

On a recent overnight stay in Lille we popped in here for a meal and were very glad we did as it was delicious. It's a little off the beaten track but the service was excellent and the pizza I ate freshly cooked and scrumptious. The decor is quirky and the food reasonably priced. Bravo.

A very friendly place with honest food. Great taste, even greater prices.
We ate the escalope and the ravioli with truffle which were both very very nice and plenty.

Italian food with a French twist, like pizza topped with emmental cheese - delicious! Wide choice of food and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended!
