I took my mother here for lunch and really enjoyed it. The salad was fabulous - they have the best blue cheese dressing I have ever tasted. The artichoke dip is fantastic, and I love their bread sticks. The linguine with clam sauce is delicious....More

Brought my wife to Brighton for her 70th birthday with a surprise party with family at Pinnochios. Had a private room upstairs with a great hostess/waitress Marilyn. She was SUPER. Courteous and helpful, she made it a great time for all. Great food, highly recommend.

Pinocchio's is the only Italian option in Brighton so if it's what your craving its your only option. The place is small and cute! But it's not my favorite place. The staff is not overly friendly and and the food is good but not great!...More
