Hi, we are very happy that you enjoyed your visit! Hope to see you again soon

Went here with high hopes but ultimately was very disappointed. Ordered the seafood paella for two which cost the best part of £50. It had lobster, prawns, squid, monkfish and clams. The clams were the highlight, everything else was over cooked, rubbery and dry. Have...had much better meals elsewhere for half the price.More

We've been going here for decades, since they were on Restauradores square (where they'll return soon). Clams 'bulhao de pato' and the rock salted shrimp are a must. Portuguese tap beer is often served too warm in Portugal but not here! Have the monkfish rice...and sit outside. The waiters love to chit chat and gossip about the old days and it's a joy. Pinoqio is an authentic Lisbon classic.More

What used to be a lovely ‘local’ at the bottom of Liberdade has become a chain like feeling place and they have jacked prices up in to silliness. If only yhe quality of the food had remained, but that has headed south. I was very...disappointed and sad to experience this. I feel sorry for the staff who are left to defend this to their customers.More

Definitely at the higher- and more expensive end of Lisbon dining, but still pretty reasonably priced, Pinoquio delivered very good seafood paella in enormous portions, served in a chaotic but entertaining fashion. The restaurant was jammed when we visited but we were well looked after...and you could spend the entire dinner just watching the chaos all around. Great evening, and definitely recommended.More

Though the location in Baixa is easily associated with tourist targets, and the street has its quota of eatery hawkers, don't be put off. The inside is spacious (esp. in this period!) and easy on the eye, fairly subdued decor, The seafood curry listed under...their Specialities section delivers on quality and volume. Lovely fresh prawns and lobster served with rice. I accompanied with sauteed green beans but the volume was sufficient without these. A nice bottle of house white Borba and the wonderful home-made vanilla and lemon zest ice cream rounded off a final evening in this city. Service is friendly, some speaking English better than othersMore

Amazing seafood rice. Not the cheapest in the area but well worth it for the great decor, service and high quality ingredients. Amazing wine list also.
