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).

We went here for our son's birthday. The food was superb, the atmosphere is great and the prices are very reasonable. We took the granddaughters as part of the party and they always look forward to going again
We had a family birthday here - the atmosphere was great and the food was excellent - we will definitely go again. This is great if you are alone or in a group
We went here for a birthday celebration - our children and grandchildren absolutely love it and we return as often as we can - I would recommend this for special occassions
The meal and service were excellent, whether you eat off the main menu or the fixed price the standard is equally good- I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in Bournemouth
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!

Really enjoyable experience and we had a lovely meal to celebrate my 50th birthday. I have always wanted to visit as I collect anything to do with Pinocchio. Well worth a visit and we will certainly be returning
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 .
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
