Reviewed yesterday NEW

One of my favourite places to eat in Brighton. Fantastic value for money, great service and lovely atmosphere. Loads of choice on the menu, especially impressed that you can choose any sauce on any pasta so literally hundreds of possibilities. Pizzas are really big and delicious. Never lets us down!

We have dinner a few days ago, and my daughter needs something gluten free. They offered their tagliatelles, but it has been not gluten free Take care, This restaurant lies to the people. She was in bed 2 days after this dinner. Terrible experience

Pinocchio has a very popular separate gluten free menu with pasta and pizza on – but not tagliatelle, that is on our main menu. More

Really good food everytime i've visited. Value for money is second to none, with a 2 course meal only £11. A 'must eat' for all Italian food lover.

I then ordered a pasta dish which had tuna in it, but It wasn't nice, very generous portion but the sauce was very bland.... More
