Pinocchio has been in Brighon for many years and even after a fire it has kept it charm. Pasta, pizza Wine and atmosphere. 4 generations of our family have been coming here and will carry on.

Great place to go for quick fresh Italian food. Restaurant has a nice bustling atmosphere. Food is unbelievably good value for money. Especially the special two or three course menus. Service is friendly and speedy. I'd definitely recommend after a busy few hours shopping in Brighton. What makes it even better is that it's a private local business rather than... More

Wide menu, delicious pasta and pizzas. Always come back for the Tagliatelle ai pomodori e pesto. Nice atmosphere although usually it is pretty busy. Poor service when they are too busy.

Had tickets for Sunny Afternoon and this place is virtually next door to the Theatre Royal. Had a two course menu that was very reasonable, prawn cocktail and mushrooms in garlic, then aubergine parmigiana and a pizza. Good service, friendly atmosphere and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Having failed to see Father Christmas because of unpublished over-subscription at Preston Manor, we needed to treat our grandchildren. We've been to Pinocchio before, but I had quite forgotten how family-friendly is was and with a stunning affordable menu. The service staff were fantastic and the portions generous. Highly recommended.

This is a great restaurant, you can tell that they know what they doing as it always busy. Pinocchios has a pleasant bustling atmosphere and quickly serves good value no nonsense Italian food in generous portions. I have eaten here many times over the years and will carry on doing so.

Took my nephews here for a Christmas treat. Lovely food and fast service. Only complaint is that as we were seated upstairs we thought it maybe a bit more roomy. I was wrong I appreciate that it's the time for office parties and Christmas nights out. But there wasn't enough room between tables to move our chairs. We were on... More

Such good food! A big bustling restaurant. Friendly and fast staff who know how to get a table for 10 fed and watered before a show at the Theatre Royal. Personal service by email when making the booking and a lovely big table upstairs for the 10 of us. Everyone loved their food. And the price!! OMG! Where can you... More

I've been here often but recently 10 of us went to a show at Theatre Royal and had pre-show dinner here on a Sunday night. Excellent choice of food, wide range including pizza, pasta, meat and fish. All very reasonably priced and tasting wonderful. Good service - if you explain you have a deadline then they will make an effort... More
