Just fancied a plate of pasta, prior to a concert at the Brighton Dome, just around the corner. Bustling place, with some outside seating available. It was getting a little chilly, so we opted for inside, and were shown upstairs. Service was quick, and as drinks were delivered, our food order was taken. My wife had the Arrabiata, whilst I plumped for a Bolognese. Huge helpings, and more than we could eat! Only had a soft drink each, but even with service charge, it only came to just over twenty quid. Very reasonable, and the staff and surroundings were more than pleasant. Worth a go

I went to this restaurant after reading a book by John Prince where the characters ate at the restaurant. I've been to many Italian restaurants, but this is the best. Great food, great wine and a great atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the town.

We were staying in Brighton for 2 nights and stumbled open Pinocchios, 2 courses for £9.95 yes please!! The service was quick but not very friendly and the food was pretty underwhelming. It was cooked fine but I think maybe my expectations were far too high bearing in mind the price.
I had prawn cocktail for starters but found the prawns still had the black track (intestinal tract) which personally I find gross but I know it doesn’t bother some people. The pizza I ordered had sausage mushrooms and egg, again maybe my expectations were too high but I was expecting a baked egg with a soft yolk in the center of my pizza not a hard boiled one at the side.
The tiramisu on the other hand was amazing!!!
I would go back but would order different things.
