Yesterday was our first visit to this restaurant and I would thoroughly recommend it. They open at 5 on Sundays and we had booked a party of 20 for Mum's birthday. The waiter, unfortunately didn't get his name, was very attentive and very friendly and we had a great time. The food was lovely - I can recommend the seafood risotto. My husband had lamb shank and he said it was awesome. My dad ordered the special of lamb chops with pearl barley and other veg and we couldn't believe how much was on his plate - he was overwhelmed. Would definitely go again. They have a second room upstairs so they could deal with two good sized parties!

Came here with family after hearing good reviews.

It was a very busy friday night, and a downside is a lacxk of parking (a bit at the back, but even the double yellows where we could normally park as had my mum and her disabled badge, were the no-waiting kind so this wa sa minor pain).

The whole evening was quite slow; we were in the place for about 2.5 hours which would be OK but we were only able to get 8pm so were all hungry to start with. i don't mind a relaxed meal, but it did feel at times it was just too busy for them to cope.

I would try it again perhaps earlier on a mid-week night to see if its any better.

The food itself was nice enough, if not memorable. Drinks are quite reasonable priced.

There were no complaints, and the waiter was trying to ply us with an after dinner shot of something potent, which did endear himself as caring.

They thankfully do now take cards, not cash only anymore.

Can here on a weekday night and ate the £12.99 three course menu. Filo pastry starter was nice, following by a decent bowl of pasta and then tiramisu. A good, filling meal for a decent price.

First visit to Pinocchio, visited with relatives who live in Ashton really enjoyed the food and good service even though it was a very busy Saturday night. Food good and excellent value for money. Wish we lived nearer as I am sure it would become our local.

Great pasta and attentive staff.The restaurant dining space is not very big but well appointed.
Could not fault the food.
Big drawback is no card facilities.TAKE CASH.
