Ate at Pinocho's on our first full night of 4 ended up eating here every night food and service was that good. Group ranged from 15 heads on first 2 nights and 8 on final night each time we were treated well and drinks were served quickly. Food all arrived together and was piping hot. We had no starters but... More

We went here with a bunch of friends interested to try some Italian. The baked pastas were nice but pizzas I've had better at some gas stations. What disappointed us was the level of service. The staff seemed very uninterested and could even walk away in the middle of one of us speaking. Not a nice atmosphere in that way.

Not a relaxing experience at all. Staff were constantly rushing past our table. Too many table squashed in. Service was rushed and poor. I asked whether garlic bread was round like a pizza. He said they could do that. However, what was thrown onto our table by a rude waiter was what looked like a small roll cut in half,... More

We loved the location and the menu so much so that we returned the following night, The staff were excellent as was the food on both occasions. Very busy with mixed... More

We had a wonderful meal here last year and I have been waiting 12 months to repeat the experience. We changed into proper clothes to have a nice evening and asked for a table in spanish. Totally blanked. So rude. Really upset. Has put me off the marina for good!

Food, service, location, atmosphere. All excellent. Very popular and busy place but service was still spot on. All dishes were great and will be going again. Homemade desserts also which were top quality. A must try if in the area.

Loved, loved, loved this place. So many good things to say about it. We were holidaying in Benalmadena for 2 weeks over New Year and I think we ended up eating here about 8 times during the stay! I don't usually visit Italian Restaurants unless I am in Italy so that is saying something about how good it was. We... More
