We really enjoyed eating at this lovely restaurant situated on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of San Pedro. It was especially fun getting to know the staff (and pup) and hearing about their cuisine stories and how they get their authentic Italian ingredients over a highly controlled Belizean boarder.

My wife and I Got there for dinner, both ordered a small garden salad and simple pasta dishes. The sald took at least 45 minutes to get served followed by the pasta which then took another 45 minutes. No bread served with the meal. Other customers besides us were also experiencing the same mediocre service.

Incredible to find phenomenal homemade Italian food (brick oven pizza, lasagna, and tiramisu) at Pinocchio's on San Pedro Island. Of course the owner is from Rome. Tasted just like we had when we were in Rome.

We discovered Pinocchio's by accident while exploring some of the side streets of San Pedro. While not on the main road, it is worth seeking out for authentic Italian food. The owner (Max from Italy) was very welcoming and friendly. The homemade gnocchi was delicious, their bolognese sauce was very good, and their brick oven thin crust pizza was excellent.... More

The pizza was cooked in an outdoor oven by the owner and tasted great. Service was second to none and the prices are reasonable. Well worth a visit !

We really enjoyed Pinocchio's, the gnocchi was fresh made and perfectly done, the pizza was fantastic and the service outstanding. Find this place when in San Pedro, it is outstanding.

We visited here last week while staying on Ambergris Caye and I'm at a loss for words! We weren't sure what to expect since it's low season and we were the only 2 people in the restaurant. My husband ordered pizza and I ordered the spicy spaghetti. We were a little surprised when the server (who is also the chef... More
