Excellent food. Not the usual Italian dishes welcome variety. Went early so atmosphere only building up. Pretty busy by the time we left. Good attentive service. Shay

Service was outstanding. We were not left waiting at all on the food. Quiet enough atmosphere but not dead for a rainy Tuesday night.

I came back for a dinner in Pinocchio with a friend who requested a 'non fancy, informal place'. From my past experience, i knew Pinocchio fits the bill. It was empty when we arrived there (18.00 on Monday, so no wonder) and got more full after 19.00. I had the house special appetiser, which was a type of bread, soft, with cheese and grilled veggies in the middle. Good, though not amazing. My friend had the Italian salad, which she was very happy about. For mains, we both had house-made ravioli, which were perfectly cooked (too many Italian restaurants in Dublin tend to over-cook them) with truffles and lovely creamy (yet not too heavy) blue-cheese sauce. We had a glass of red each, with my friend opting for the lighter red while i went for a more full-bodied wonderful deep red (both are Italian but, alas, i forgot the wine names and they did not indicate them on the bill). We were too full for dessert but i had a cup of Moka, which was very satisfactory. The waitress was excellent in both manner as well as mastery of dishes and the wines on offer. Only thing...that almost got me to drop them a notch on the rating is that prices went up compared to my last visit there and relative to the size of dishes. Specifically: Wine glass: 7.50 each (reasonable); Salad Italiana / other starter: 10.90-11.90 (each) Ravioli of the day: 18.90 (bit steep).

We dined here on a MenuPages voucher; we got a reduced menu from the "normal" one which was a bit of a scam....and in spite of apparently having difficulty getting a reservation, the place was virtually empty. Staff fine...but all very misleading...and this is an expensive restaurant...won't be going there again. John

5 of us ate here on a Thursday evening. the restaurant wasn't full and service was good. I ordered the ravioli special and I think it was a starter due to the size, although it was pleasant to eat. For an Italian restaurant not to serve pizza is a bit odd, just didn't feel like a true Italian Restaurant. Restaurant is ok, but then so are so many more, slightly overpriced.

We came here with a Menupages deal. The place was almost deserted on a Saturday lunch time. Friendly service. The antipasto starters consisted of 5 types of thinly sliced Italian cured meats, grilled aubergine & courgette with garlic and 3 different bits of cheese with lovely ciabatta. It was a generous portion and very tasty. I have never had an Italian pinotage before and it was very nice. My husband had penne with tomato sauce with Italian sausage and red pepper. His only complaint was that there was too much sauce on the pasta, which you won't get in Italy. I opted for the ravioli with ricotta cheese and spinach with tomato sauce. The ravioli was home made and very good. Not so sure about the tomato sauce. It reminded me in taste and colour of canned tomato soup of decades ago. It takes away from the lovely ravioli. This place would have so much more atmosphere with proper brick walls inside in stead of brick wallpaper, which is just odd.
