The atmosphere was great, typical Italian chatter, not library silence like you get in many restaurants now. The food and wine was honest and yummy, plus reasonably priced. The staff were really friendly. Definitely will be going back. Thank you.

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.
