Great service, excellent food, relaxed environment! Make sure you book as a lot of people were turned away while we were having dinner. The chocolate terrine for dessert was to die for!

If you're in Martinborough you must have dinner at Pinocchino. Dined there with four girlfriends friends and all meals were divine without exception - really beautiful dining experience.

If only I was a Master chef judge I would rate the meal I had 10/10. Delicious rate eye fillet with bacon croquettes, brocollini, black truffle, mushrooms. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Highly recommended.

Very welcoming and it was almost fully booked when we phoned the day before we wanted to come for dinner. The service is perfect - attentive but not over fussy, and the food was amazing! Will definitely come back again.
