We were visiting Cheverny for a wedding and happened across this place. The slightly garish decor might have out us off but it was one of the few places open. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The staff were excellent and of course so was the wine.

Food is edgy... the one thing that saves this place is turnover, the place is really busy because of it's location so close to Cheverny's castle. Expect pre-made dough topped with canned sauce and whatever topping you chose (or something close (?) to that). Wine by the glass is not bad. It's not expensive.

We went to Chateau Cheverny on a Tuesday and when we wanted to have lunch Pinocchio was the only restaurant opened in the surroundings. It seems that in this region of France many restaurants close on Mondays and Tuesdays. We had a salad with tomato, mozzarella and rocket served on a thin pizza crust. The salad was tasty. We also...

We ate here before heading over to the castle for an afternoon visit. In view of its position we expected it to be expensive, but this was not the case. The pizza my husband chose and salad I selected were very tasty and good value for money. The service was appropriate for style if establishment.

Very nice located close to the entrance of Cheverny Castle the Pinocchio looks very inviting for a lunch or dinner. However the apperance is deceiving. The staff was very unfriendly - at least to foreigners not perfectly speaking French. We had to wait more than an hour for our meals and two out of three main courses had been already... More

We came across this pizzeria by chance on a Tuesday evening. At first there were only a few eating but it became really busy, and the kitchen did well as we counted a dozen takeaways being collected too. A popular place! I can understand why as my husband's pizza had a very generous and tasty topping. My salad was excellent... More

We visited in the evening, from our campsite, looking for something vegetarian to eat. Several very good choices on the menu here, and the French restaurant summer evening ambience that we really enjoy. There were several families with young children, and everyone was very relaxed. Between us we had pizzas and salads, all with interesting ingredients that lifted them above... More

We popped in for a drink and found the beer (pression, 50cl) almost twice the price of nearby Cour-Cheverny. Nice place though, and friendly service.

We discovered this place by accident.... we had been deviated from Orleans to just south of Blois due to floods in the Loire area and directed to this charming Italian restaurant by our B & B hosts. We were celebrating our youngest daughters 18th birthday and as she and her sister are real 'foodies' we were hardly expecting a pizzeria... More
