Makes his own pasta and sauces. Fresh seafood and a brick oven for pizza. This gentleman is from Southern Italy and he can cook. We even made special requests and it was not an issue. Ask for the foccacia pizza.

If you crave real handmade dough, hot melted cheese with toppings a plenty then this is your spot. Impeccable decor, quiet without blaring music one block west of Coconut D, just follow their signage. They have other fresh made Italian dishes as well. Open evenings. Good for families groups or couples. Fast friendly service too. I'll be back most definitely!

We really enjoyed eating at this lovely restaurant situated on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of San Pedro. It was especially fun getting to know the staff (and pup) and hearing about their cuisine stories and how they get their authentic Italian ingredients over a highly controlled Belizean boarder.

My wife and I Got there for dinner, both ordered a small garden salad and simple pasta dishes. The sald took at least 45 minutes to get served followed by the pasta which then took another 45 minutes. No bread served with the meal. Other customers besides us were also experiencing the same mediocre service.

Incredible to find phenomenal homemade Italian food (brick oven pizza, lasagna, and tiramisu) at Pinocchio's on San Pedro Island. Of course the owner is from Rome. Tasted just like we had when we were in Rome.

We discovered Pinocchio's by accident while exploring some of the side streets of San Pedro. While not on the main road, it is worth seeking out for authentic Italian food. The owner (Max from Italy) was very welcoming and friendly. The homemade gnocchi was delicious, their bolognese sauce was very good, and their brick oven thin crust pizza was excellent.... More

The pizza was cooked in an outdoor oven by the owner and tasted great. Service was second to none and the prices are reasonable. Well worth a visit !
