I can't drive anywhere in the vicinity without wanting to make a detour to this place. The deli is top notch with great Italian meats, cheeses and other goods. The restaurant portion serves up very good pizza, Italian staple dishes and fantastic sub sandwiches.

You can tell when you walk into a joint that is an institution. There's a culture, a vibe, and everyone is busy and happy. Pinocchio's is definitely that kind of scene. The food was very good, very traditional Italian. Nothing spectacular, but everything was made right, and the portions were in fact huge. Counter service was prompt and professional.Stopped at...

I would give this place 5 stars, but my reason for removing a star is the way it's setup for ordering. It has a cafeteria style selection for the dishes. Yes, there is a menu above, but it's also nice to see the food in front of you which is constantly being replaced with a fresh batch since everything goes... More

Such a great restaurant! Very informal and attached to a deli market. When we moved to the area, the long time residents recommended this place, and I am so glad they did! It was a little confusing my first time at this restaurant. When you walk in, there are 2 counters. The one on the right is gelato, the one... More

Pinocchio or Monte Carlo Deli & Restaurant is located in the old downtown business section of Burbank. Parking is free and easy as there is parking adjacent to and behind the restaurant. We ate in the restaurant section, to the left of the entrance. The menu and prices are posted on the wall behind the counter, and there is a... More

The only advice is that you cannot order pizza till after 4pm. I wish they would make it earlier so people could get in on this for lunch. By far the best pizza in Burbank. They also have salads and lasagna if pizza is not your thing. It is cafeteria style but the food is great and what a deal!... More
