Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went last night and had mussels and calamari to share between 4. Really big portions. We then had the salmon and broccoli tagliatelle x2, mushroom tagliatelle and tuna steak. We should have got the tuna steak rare rather than medium on reflection but it...was lovely regardless. All pasta was absolutely beautiful homemade. What a great find would definitely recommend.More

Ate here for the first time today. The service was very friendly and very efficient. We felt like we were eating at home. Starters were garlic mushrooms followed by grilled tuna with sesame seeds and balsamic. Both courses were delicious and the tuna was cooked...perfectly. Including desserts and drinks the bill was under €50. Thoroughly recommended.More

The food here is delicious with generous portion sizes. The service is quick and the staff take meticulous care of their customers. The food and drinks here are very affordable. Plenty of outdoor sitting area. It’s perfect for anyone who likes Italian food.

This is a welcoming restaurant, with a nice ambience in which to have a relaxed, good quality meal without being rushed. We sat outside watching the world go by and eating some fine Italian dishes. Our shared antipasti starter platter was excellent and definitely sufficient...for two. We both followed that with mushroom and truffle pasta which was gorgeous. All accompanied by a reasonably priced and very gluggable red wine. Location is good. Atmosphere is good. Service is good. Food and drink are good. Cost is reasonable. Not a lot else to say. Pinocchio ticked all the boxes and if we were staying longer at the resort we would have returned for an encore. Highly recommended.More

The food, atmosphere and service were of great quality. We sat outside, however, there is a sheltered enclosure. I found the menu to be limited in choice, however my husband did not - preference of opinion. The night we were there for dinner was extremely...busy, however, the food was well worth the wait. We enjoyed our evening without feeling rushed to finish our dinner. We loved the Tiramisu for dessert. We will return to "Ristorante Pinocchio".More

Me and my partner visited last night for dinner and it definitely exceeded expectations. We were seated in the sheltered area outside with a lovely view of the beach. Our waitress was very attentive and helped us when needed. The menu had a great range...of options. We shared calamari for starter and it was the best calamari that either of us have eaten, tasted very fresh. For our main course, I had the four cheese gnocchi and my partner had the chicken and bacon spaghetti, we both really enjoyed them and sent back clean plates. Portion sizing was perfect. For dessert we had tiramisu and chocolate lava cake, both tasted amazing! the service was fast and friendly, couldn’t fault it one bit. We would recommend and definitely worth a visit!More

After a few disappointments with food in other so called "authentic" establishments thought would be safe with an Italian and wasn't disappointed. Excellent lasagne. Ordered potato wedges as a side which were also great. So many other places serve stick thin overcooked fries so was...nice to actually taste potato. Tiramisu to round off was superb too. Staff were great as well, friendly and attentive and reasonably priced food. Worthy of 5 stars.More
