This is our favourite spot in Brighton. My little girl loves it here. Good hearty italian food in the perfect location: right beside the Theatre. Great value too!

Pinocchio is a great value Italian restaurant and has been operating in Brighton for many years - so clearly doing something right! It can be very noisy when it is crowded, so if you prefer quieter dining try to go outside the peak pre-theatre times or peak lunch times (try around 2pm). The service is very friendly and also fast.... More

Been here 3 times already and this is by far my favourite Italian restaurant in Brighton. Their pizzas and pastas are really good and they also have amazing desserts. The staff is very friendly. I highly recommend it. Will definitely go back!

Service is very swift and efficient , nice clean tables and good variety of food. This is a chain restaurant so do not expect authentic Naples quality Pasta. But overall hot tasty and very good value for money. The Desserts were the best thing of our meal. We were taken as part of a business meeting, it is not a... More
