We came to Pinocchio’s for dinner. The food was delicious - I had the seafood pasta, and it was loaded with mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari... it was absolutely delicious! The staff were so friendly. The restaurant was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Highly recommend!

This is a very good local Italian right under the Luas stop in Ranelagh. Very good pasta and exceptional quality pizza, staff very good. Try the Antipasta sharing plate, probably too much!

This restaurant has really good Italian food in the heart of Dublin. The food was lightly flavored without being dull--the taste of the ingredients came through instead of being overwhelmed by herbs. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice except that it was noisy...More
