Description: Marianna Frusciante, and her partner Paul Cookson, became the new proprietors of Pinocchio’s Italian Restaurant in 2005.This was somewhat of a homecoming, as Marianna’s father Antonio, had first opened and ran the restaurant for three years in the 1980’s. It was then known as 'Torino’s, in the former Bargates Shopping centre.Now pinocchios is serving up home cooked Italian food in friendly relaxed surroundings.

“Good food”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Went last night on spur of the moment !
Even though I live in burton haven't been before but just fancied Italian so made a phone call to see if there was any tables available , the lady who answered the phone said they were very busy but if I didn't mind waiting she would fit me in.
Well am I glad I went it was a chilled expirence and well worth the wait ,only two staff on for such a busy place I think the one lady was the owner! But the coped really well.
I was driving so had a coke my wife had a glass of wine we had starters and a main and thought the £ 37 bill was pretty good tbh!
Had an Indian take away earlier in the week and that was £28 and not that good
In conclusion glad I wanted so Italian and this will now become a regular eatery!!

“Great food, good service and value for money - what more could you want?”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Visited wth 24 friends - even though we were such a large group the food was excellent. Staff were friendly and the service was very very good. Had a great night. Just wish we lived nearer so that Pinocchio's could be my regular restaurant.
