The seafood soup with bread seemed to have been simmering the entire day! It was thick and very tasty and generous seafood inside!

The name might put you off but the service,choice and quality of food was very good indeed. Don't be tempted by the pizzeria next door this restaurant is very good indeed.

I took my friend here who was visiting Norwich for the first time. The portions were very generous, reasonably priced. Food was delicious and felt very authentic. The service was good. Staff were friendly. We will be returning!

I visited this place on Friday 3rd March. I booked a table for one at 20:00.When I walked through the door, I was greeted in such a nice manner, that was warming. The waiter seated me near a window, which I admit, the view wasn't that great, considering it was a Friday night, lots of people around. Anyways, I ordered... More

I already went there twice and will definitely go back Asap. The food is outstanding and the service is also extremely good. Got out of the restaurant extremely satisfied (both me and my friends, in both occasions). It is rightly priced and the quality of the food is perfect. Being an Italian living in Norwich, I can affirm that This... More

We came to believe that on Friday night any good reviews of this restaurant were clearly telling us porkies. The food was so bland that is it was a color it would be magnolia. Service was interesting but at least we were seen too quickly so we didn't have to stay in there too long. Honestly the pudding I had... More

Pinocchio's is an traditional Italian restaurant and pizzeria in Norwich.Owned by brothers Gonario and Andrea, who have been the trade for over 20 years and are very passionate about the industry. Comfortable seating and immaculately laid tables, and stripped wooden floors give the room a rustic warmth. They serve a wide range of traditional Italian cuisine for every occasion, including stone-baked pizzas; authentic pastas; steaks on stone; classic meat and fish dishes; as well as tempting antipasti platters and entrees. As always, with an Italian meal, there is nothing finer (or more indulgent!) than finishing with a sumptuous dessert like Tiramisu or Zabaglione, or even a rich glass of dessert wine. Loyal customers rate the buzzing atmosphere, extensive menu and interesting pasta and pizza dishes; Pinocchio's restaurant is ideal for a family meal, catching up with friends or even a romantic dinner for two. Pinnochio's has an extensive range of red, white and sparkling wines, for any occasion.
