I love places like this! They've got all the old school Italian favorites. This is the type of place that you smell the red sauce before you even hit the doors! I had lunch here and they give you plenty to eat. The only thing missing was Frank Sinatra at one of the booths chewing down with his posse!

Not my first visit to Pinocchio, when I found out we were visiting Burbank was excited to go back. Pizza is very good, great crust. Also had the meatball sandwich with meat sauce. Comes with 2 salad sides and as we got there an hour before closing got a great portion. Meatballs are large, get 2 on the small sandwich.... More

I was famished and this place filled me up to the brim! I had just arrived from a 14-hr trip from the Philippines and I wanted real food. My uncle brought me here. Once you come in, you'll see a grocery filled with italian goodies and a deli that offers sausages (yum!!) , cheeses (I died when I saw those!),... More

I can't drive anywhere in the vicinity without wanting to make a detour to this place. The deli is top notch with great Italian meats, cheeses and other goods. The restaurant portion serves up very good pizza, Italian staple dishes and fantastic sub sandwiches.

You can tell when you walk into a joint that is an institution. There's a culture, a vibe, and everyone is busy and happy. Pinocchio's is definitely that kind of scene. The food was very good, very traditional Italian. Nothing spectacular, but everything was made right, and the portions were in fact huge. Counter service was prompt and professional.Stopped at...

I would give this place 5 stars, but my reason for removing a star is the way it's setup for ordering. It has a cafeteria style selection for the dishes. Yes, there is a menu above, but it's also nice to see the food in front of you which is constantly being replaced with a fresh batch since everything goes... More
