Visited for the first time last night and could quite happily dine here 3 times a week. I generally don't write reviews, as if you're open and trading I kind of expect you to be of a certain standard. However, this restaurant surpassed my expectations and as previous reviews helped inform my choice to visit, I hope I can do the same and Pinocchio's stays around for a long time.
Not only was the food really, really good (goat's cheese starter was amazing!), but it was very reasonably priced and the set price menu made it even better! Whilst the restaurant frontage is quite understated (blink and you'll miss it), looks are definitely deceiving. The staff were friendly, the place seemed bright and clean and our waiter even had a personality/sense of humour which only added to the enjoyment of our evening. I was also surprised to learn (based on previous reviews) that they are now fully licensed and it is no longer necessary (or allowed after jan 31st) to take your own alcohol. Great news. I didn't feel rushed to order/finish/leave as can often be the case and the only negative that I can find is the fact that I didn't know that it was "payment by cash only" until I handed over my card to pay. Not the end of the world but I would have preferred to know at the begining of the evening, rather than the end.
Ultimately a really nice evening and overall experience. I'm so glad I've discovered this restaurant and locally in Ashton too. I will definitely be visiting again and no doubt on a regular basis.
