Our server Miriam was so amazing. The environment was wonderful & I enjoyed that we could listen to music & watch the baseball game all at the same time. The food was nice & hot & the flavor was very good. I will recommend to friends & family. And I will also be returning. Thank you.

We decided to go out to dinner and tried Pinocchio's for happy hour. The Lasagna was awesome and so was the shrimp pasta. We have dined there several times now and haven't been disappointed. We will definitely be back.

While the food was great upon arriving I learned that the restaurant does not look at open table reservations. I had a party of 9 with me so naturally I made reservations; which were never received by the restaurant so we had to wait for 30 minutes for a table. Waitress took a long time to come up to table to take order and food took equally as long. Luckily the food was delicious once it arrived and my party was extremely happy. Overall I would give the restaurant an A for their food and a C at best for their service.

The calamari tasted like chicken, the pasta dishes had thin weak sauce, one got sick on the lobster ravioli, and my marsala chicken dish was very oily. Do you have a new chef? I won't be back!!

Great live music place, no cover charge to listen. Great, reasonably priced food. Neighborhood feel, everyone friendly. I can go there alone and feel right at home.

Place is ok, but in the case of my visit, food came out slow and wasn't anything to write home about. Seems like a good place to take kids, and it has a distinct neighborhood feel. If I lived near the establishment, I would give it another chance.

This place was so much fun! My husband and I went to the grooming expo and couldn't decide what to eat, I picked Pinocchio's. The best pasta I have had in quite some time now. The live band Detweiler was awesome! The service was great, we didnt wait long, and people kept coming in after us! Overall we had so much fun..I said we have to come here again even if we live all the way in San Bernardino lol. Amazing place...

Dishes are more than plentiful and tasty. One main dish feeds two. Two dishes easily feed 3 or 4. Pizza is also great.! If you want best sports TV viewing, ask for lounge seating on reservation.

Waitress was very nice given the limitations she was working with: 1) handling too many things at the restaurant (serving her customers, answering the phone, etc; 2) we got there early (5:30pm) and they were out of some dishes?!;3) half our party had to switch dishes and then got wrong things; it was a birthday meal for a friend and was very disappointing.

Pasta I ordered (Penne with salmon in a light cream sauce) was very good. The only issue is that there was a live band there, and they were a bit loud, and their music sounded like elevator music (jazz flute, sax, etc.) But the pasta and also the garlic bread was good.

The food was pretty good but not outstanding. But what made the evening worthwhile was the music combo playing jazz and the blues on Saturday night.

That's really why I went. I love the Sat.night jazz band, don't even know their name but they're great!
wish they had gluten-free pizza, it looked good but I'm gluten-free. more and more people are and restaurants too. it's not hard.
noise level is very, very,very high in there.

We've been there twice and both times we were met with poor service and attitude from the servers. Special requests were not met
and the servers do not check in on you often. You have to keep asking for missing food or they take too long in serving. Armen has major attitude with the customers, I'm not sure if he's the manager or the owner, but he needs to learn people skills. It would help in making you feel like you would want to return. I've given this restaurant two chances, and bith times I was unsatisfied. I will not return here nor will I recommend it to anyone.
