Food was not appetizing nor enjoyable. It was disappointing all round really
really disappointing meal. The bread was so salty. The prawn started was tasteless, as was the risotto special. worst meal I had in a long time. really surprised with the positive reviews. Thought it was awful. would never return
Food was delicious m, very decent price.
Brilliant, food. Service was lovely guy
Five of us thoroughly enjoyed
Wine good and fair price!
Pleasant, friendly service, good food.
The food was lovely. 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 Went for dinner with friends and we definitely loved it the food and customer service.
Everything was marvelous.
Great food and service. A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Excellent food, starter & main course were super. Service good, tables a little too close together so difficult to have a private conversation but otherwise no complaints
Food was flavourless and bland. Forgettable and will not be back.
This is a lovely, personal restaurant. 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.
Excellent food at a very fair price. Service was friendly but efficient. Strongly recommended.

Lovely spot, great service
The staff are so nice at Pinocchio's. They made a fuss of our birthday boy. He was chuffed!
Reasonably price, great service, tasty food. Decent wine choices and good place to bring kids.
Refreshing to go to a restaurant in Dublin where there is actual diversity among staff and to see a business hiring people who live with disabilities. Seems to have made a very happy and friendly staff team at this place!
Gorgeous Italian food with excellent staff & atmosphere. :)
Pinocchio in Ranelagh is a fabulous restaurant. I highly recommend it. The staff including Antonio are amazing and a warm welcome is always guaranteed. Food is the best Italian food in Dublin - authentic and delicious. 100% perfect!
