We ate at 4pm so the restaurant was fairly quiet. Despite the time, the food was brought quickly, and it was hot and very tasty. Recommend the Chicken and Spinach Tagliatelle and the Tiramisu:)

The two and three course menus are pretty cheap so you probably shouldn't expect too much - I'd rate the food as OK, nothing special, though the portions are generous. It has a buzzing atmosphere and always seems busy - wait staff friendly despite this....More

This is a justifiably popular restaurant in a great location, that serves good Italian food quickly and efficiently for reasonable value. Accordingly it is very busy, which is great if the front of house team are as cheerful, friendly and welcoming as the waiters. On...More

On Saturday Brighton was buzzing, we were lucky enough to arrive at Pinocchio's restaurant just before the evening rush, within minutes there wasn't a spare table & there was a constant queue. We enjoyed a delicious meal with wine and cocktails, everything was perfect. We...More

There is a disabled toilet on the ground floor, it's right out back past the kitchen, but the access is good. Yiu will need to let them know though, as it can be busy down there with staff running to & fro
