Return again for a shared pizza before we left . Would definitely... More

We came here last April and were very impressed at the high quality of the food and the low cost. Unfortunately this time i was extremely disappointed. Mushrooms not cooked enough with no flavour, the fillet steaks just not what they should be and cut down on size. Such a shame as we were looking forward to it. Staff were... More

Pinocchio has been our restaurant of choice for Italian food since we first came here in 2015. It was recommended to us for its pizzas, which are great, but it is so much more. We ate there last night with visiting family and all six of us were wonderfully satisfied by meal's end. Most of the group chose the sopa... More

We went for the wood fired pizza and a Mediterranean salad and both were delicious. We washed it down with a nice bottle of Chianti. Dinner for two with tip about 40 euros. It was a nice evening and most of the diners seemed to be locals which is always a great indication of a place to dine!

5 of us had dinner at Pinocchio and we all enjoyed our meal. The food was well presented and delicious. Between us we had steaks, pasta, sea bass and risotto with each one of us commenting how good it was. The setting was lovely - great ambience for dinner and to end the meal complimentary limoncello. Definitely recommend.

Visited for lunch. Shared melon and serrano ham as starter, was a good portion size. Then we both had pizza. Nice thin and crispy Base with good amount of toppings. Worth a visit.

Dined here twice on our short trip to Nerja. The food was gorgeous on both occasions. The locals use this restaurant which is the best review you can get. Very busy on Sundays so be prepared to wait.

Staying in Nerja for 10 nights and our appartment owner recommended the restaurant. Wonderful selection of Italian food with everything at fair prices despite being in the tourist area of the town. I had a tasty lasagne (€7.50) and my husband had grilled salmon (€12) which came with jacket potato and fresh vegetables. With house wine at just €2.50 a... More

I cant figure why Pinochios isn't more highly rated on Trip Advisor. This is one of Sid Cromwell's favourite Italian restaurants, good value and excellent food, keep it a secret though 😀

Thank Corinitza
