I had the arancini and the gnocchi with nduja and my girlfriend had pizza and the soup of the day which was vegetable soup. We both agreed the food was superb. However, it was very expensive. Food of similar quality can be easily gotten for cheaper in most restaurants, even in restaurants within a stones throw from this one. Even the wine was quite pricey. The service was very friendly and helpful, but it was a bit slow. The restaurant was also oddly empty for a Friday evening at 7pm, despite being very well located in Ranelagh, a popular spot for restaurants, and most other restaurants in this area were busy. This made the experience slightly more uncomfortable as we felt like there must be a reason nobody was coming here. At the end, we concluded that it must be because of the poor value. Would be a great restaurant if it was cheaper, as the food was genuinely fantastic.

I booked because I was looking for good food, reasonably priced with a nice, non intrusive, non loud music, relaxed ambiance. It was the 34th anniversary of my father's death - an important date. We were not dissapointed. Pinocchio is staffed with pleasant, authentic and attentive staff, easily located under the Luas tram station in Ranelagh. The overhead trams are irrelevant in the ambiance of this unique restaurant. As it is a small restaurant I encouraged booking. Open Table.ie is excellent. There is on street parking but I recommend public transport so you can enjoy some wine. Excellent food, reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
