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.

We have visited twice in the last couple of months. Both times with family. Choosing of the specials menu represents the best value. Food cooked and presented well with excellent service. May feel a little cramped if get the wrong table

We visit this lovely restaurant on a frequent basis and have done so for many years. We cannot fault it... The food is out of this world, it's very well priced and the staff are lovely. We take many friends here and everyone one of them has enjoyed it. Truly fabulous

Great little gem for reasonably priced and freshly cooked food and so visit a few times per year and have never been disappointed. Choice on set menu is always good and what we normally settle for. Portions are also very generous.

I had a leaving meal at Pinocchio's just under 2 years ago for 40 people and it was a really successful evening. Everything was organised, food came out together, piping hot and everyone had the meal ordered.

Highly recommended!

I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and did so again last week.
Very welcoming,good atmosphere,excellent value (3 good courses for £12.95....14,95 for bigger xmas menu) and the food is proper italian cuisine..........good quality and plenty of it.........e,g, Sea Bass in a beautiful sauce,steak,proper very thin italian pizza and very nice pasta.........and the puds are fantastic! Liquer coffees and lemoncella shots to finish....phew!
Good food is no good if the staff and management aren't friendly and efficient - they are and they smile and nothing is too much trouble.
