I've been to Pinocchio twice now - once in July 2016 and more recently this past weekend. The wait staff are amazing & so is the wine, but I have one complaint- the lack of a vegetarian main on the menu. Yes, you can order...More

My wife and I enjoyed a "Chef's Special" on Sunday night. It is a Tapas style meal and every meal came out hot and perfectly presented. Highly recommended to all.

The food here is divine - you cant fault it. The service is great too. The only criticism of the restaurant I would have is its weird decor.

One of our favourites in all of NZ. Fantastic service and food is superb to match. Must visit. Classic NZ food but done in a modern and delicious way. We'll definitely be back soon

At the end of our beautiful meal at Pinocchio tonight (chef's choice tapas which were ah-maze-ing), we were treated by Elly to a tasting of their new dessert. It's Paul's take on a deconstructed cheesecake with the creamiest most divine cheesecake mousse, the sharpest smoothest...More

Amazing service, ambience and food. Service was attentive but not too intrusive, pleasant surroundings that made me feel I was dining at the owners' home and pork belly with Asian flavours to die for.
