I like the idea of Pinocchio’s. The waiting staff are very friendly and the place is full, so it must be doing something right. Perhaps I just ordered the wrong meals. Our starter of funghi al aglio was probably the worst conceived starter I’ve ever...More

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.
