    We had a nice dinner at our first visit to Pinnochio's. The food was good and the wine selection was excellent. Unfortunately, the service was very slow and not very attentive. We waited a solid 20 minutes before ordering drinks and had to ask the waitress if we could order our dinners after waiting another 20 minutes. The water glasses were empty throughout the dinner and additional drinks were never offered. The restaurant was busy and perhaps the servers were overwhelmed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    My husband loved the raviolli he had, the pistachio salmon I had not so much. The pistachio topping was mushy and had no taste, also think the salmon was over cooked. I had it at Rovezzi's once and went to your restaurant purposely because it was on your secials :( I was very disappointed. But the service was excellent!!!!

    We love this place. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Always something that appeals. We go all the time and think it is one of the best Italian restaurants around. Nice dining room and always fun to eat at the bar. Good value. Great martinis. Great staff! The risotto is excellent and a great choice of seafood and veal dishes.

    The restaurant was packed, but we were shown directly to our table. Dining room is somewhat crowded, but my date and I had a 4-table to ourselves. We had to shout throughout dinner, as everyone else was--it was very loud! Wide selection on dinner & wine menu. House pinot gr. was v. good. Complimentary rustic bread with seasoned dipping oil was very good. House salad was "weedy" but gorg. dressing v. good. Basic mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies arrived lukewarm. Veal Francaise was nice, but a bit weak on flavor. Filetto Gorgonzola (beef) that was ordered medium arrived medium-well, but otherwise was tender and flavorful. Will try again when they are not so busy--it is very convenient (ample free parking) and prices are very reasonable.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/8/2011
    An absolute waste of an evening. I have heard for some time how great Pinocchio's is (and many reviews seem to concur). I can only imagine these people don't appreciate quality food. The calamari appeared to be the frozen kind from a bag. The linguini pescatore included shrimp that I would not eat. They just looked bad. My husbands veal was tough beyond belief and not at all flavorful. The wine list is what I would expect given the restaurants back woods location. So many better establishments heading toward Springfield. Don't wast your time.

    We made a reservation but weren't seated until 50 minutes after our reservation. The waitress was not attentive - when items were requested it took forever to get them. Two people ordered a filet medium - one was well done and the other rare. We've been to Pinnochio's several times and loved it. We were SO disappointed with this visit.

We also frequent another restaurant that we like and we compared them after dinner. Pinocchios was less expensive. The food and service as mentioned above. It was a great evening.

    An OUTSTANDING early Saturday night dinner with my wife and son. Could not decide on flat bread or garlic bread for an app so we got both...still dont know which one we liked better as both were great!!! Dinner consisted of Filetto gorgonzola (fillet with roasted garlic gorgonzola demi glaze with mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies) for my wife, pasta fra divallo 6 out of 6 on the heat index for me(shrimp which I had changed to scallops chicken and sausage serve with liguine) and gamberi saliccia for my son (shrimp sausage roasted red peppers provolone sauce tossed with liguine). EVERYTHING and I do mean everything was gone when our servers returned...this was ONE OUTSTANDING MEAL...WORTH THE TRIP!!!

    We have been several times. I find the menu full of choices for everyone. All people in our party enjoyed their meals very much. The service was great and i thought the pricing was very competitive. We live in Brimfield and frequent the Sturbridge restaurants. I think they just charge more because of Sturbridge. I think you do a great job and we will be in more often.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    We went to Pinocchio's for a family birthday in a group of about 8. The food was delicious, and the server was good. My only complaint is that the only tables really big enough to accommodate are long, so they stifle conversation a bit. For a large group, I would probably go to their sister restaurant in Ware because they have large round tables in the dining room.

The food was excellent(we both had delicious seafood dishes), the ambiance/decor was perfect(it felt homey without being tight), our waitress was great (she even updated us on the Red Sox score-per my request.) We definitely will return!

    Service seemed young and inexperienced - lots of reaching across our plates to fill the water glasses, trying to take away plates we weren't finished with. Waitress seemed rushed. Food was good, though steak was cooked medium well rather than medium, and presentation of meal wasn't nearly as nice as that of the appetizer. Definitely the best "nice" dining option in the Palmer/Ware area, but doesn't compete with quality/experience of dining in Northampton/Amherst.
