Dropped in here, for pre-show meal. Enjoyed their 2 course menu for 9.95. Good mushrooms with a side order of garlic bread. Main course was veggie Spinach and ricotta cannelloni, which was very tasty and a decent sized portion. Good Birra Moretti alla Siciliana beer.

Service was SUPER slow for us and it seemed like the servers really only paid attention to older people/families. It took around an hour and 20 minutes for us to order and receive our food, because it took us about 20 minutes to flag down...More

We are disappointed to read that you didn't have the service experience that we are so proud of at Pinnochio. Christmas time was incredibly busy for us and hope that you may visit us again in the new year.

Pinnocchios is a Brighton institutuon. This is a proper old school independent Italian restaurant. The decor is classic Italian also. Wooden floors, high ceilings, pictures of Venice on the walls, jars of pasta, an open view of the kitchen and amazing wafts of delicious cuisine....More

Pinocchios is a tiny little family run business which is always busy with a fabulous atmosphere! Its not posh or fine dining but it’s a lovely good hearty Italian meal. The portions are huge & the prices are far too cheap! A must try!

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

Hi, Yes they do vouchers for gifts, all you have to do is pop into the restaurant with your credit card or cash and they will write out a voucher for you that you can give as a gift, Barry.
