About Pinocchio

Established all the way back in 1979, Pinocchio has established itself as a favourite among Bournemouth’s aficionados of Italian cuisine, the go-to place of many locals when looking to indulge in authentic pizza, pasta and other rustic Italian favorites. With its cosy and traditional ambience, Pinocchio provides the perfect setting for a family meal or celebrating a special occasion. Start off with some appetisers like the avocado prawns or a selection of cured Italian meats, before moving on to the homemade lasagne, some market-fresh seafood like the fillets of lemon sole pan-fried in lemon, butter and parsley, or another Italian classic like the vitello alla giotto (veal cooked in mushrooms, onions, cream and white wine). Is your mouthwatering? Book a table now for an unforgettable meal in Bournemouth!

Excellent food,excellent service. A very pleasant evening , we were a group of 7 and not one of us were left disappointed. If your in Bournemouth on holiday, well worth spending an evening in Pinocchios .

This is a traditional Italian restaurant serving all the old favourites. Its still just as it was in the 80s, which some people might hate, but we love as it has a lot of memories for us. The food is always tasty and the staff friendly although last night we did quite a bit of waiting which got irritating towards the end when we wanted to get away. But all in all I love Pinocchio's would recommend it, and we'll certainly be going back!

Brilliant food brilliant service atmosphere was very nice prices were reasonable and our waitress was happy and perky that really set the mood, very attentive to the customers needs despite us being outside when came to the end of the meal (what I assume to be manager) was ready to hand the bill and we paid promptly, change took a while but that was the only thing I could fault them on. Overall brilliant meal and I would recommend to anyone

A very friendly family owned business which we go to each time we visit Bournemouth. Our last visit to the restaurant was as enjoyable as every other time we have been the high standard of food and the service is always consistent and we are always highly recommending it to others as we know they won't be disappointed.
