I gave this rating because it's close and gone. There is a new restaurant in its place. Try the address and see if the new one is good. I haven't been there yet so I don't know.

Every now and again I've got to go get my Pinocchio's fix. Eat here just once and you'll be hooked. I've eaten just about every sandwich on the menu. Chicken, Meatball, Pork and Turkey . Various herbs and cheeze make these sandwiches so gourmet tasting....More

The food at Pinocchio's is outstanding and I love going there for lunch. One of my favorites is the white lasagne. Their soup and sandwiches are great too. The one drawback for dinner is the noise from the bar during happy hour and beyond.

We liked the food, but the service was slow even though we mentioned we were on our way to see a play in one hour and about 20 min. Hoping we'd have plenty of time. We had to rush to eat, take home the food....More

Pinocchio's is a great place to go for lunch or dinner as it's in a great location in downtown Merced. They're right next door to Playhouse Merced and up the street from the movie theater. They have a full service bar if you're inclined but...More

We actually come here often and always love it. My wife usually orders the grilled chicken salad - and takes home about half of it. For me, it's the Pinocchio special sandwich (1/2) and the iceberg wedge with blue cheese and bacon. Reasonable wine prices,...More
