About Pinocchio - South Yarra

Established all the way back in 1971, Pinocchio of Melbourne now serves handmade Italian food in three locations. This one, in South Yarra, can be found just off Toorak Road and is open seven days for dining that is fun and heartwarming. Inspired by the Italian tradition of enjoying food with friends and family, Pinocchio places its emphasis on menus that can be shared, using the freshest of fresh ingredients as well as recipes unique to various regions of Italy. The main menu is packed with antipasti, pasta and prime cuts of meat, while the pizza can be customised with a tomato or cheese base, then stretched up to a metre long – almost as long as Pinocchio’s nose after one too many fibs! For Pinocchio to have three locations, it must be doing something right. This South Yarra branch is decked out stylishly but with simplicity in mind, and the service is always top draw. Reserve a table while there are still some going.

Further Information

Pinocchio ran away, into all kinds of mischief, or so the story goes. You, on the other hand, will not be running away from anywhere once you’ve tried the handmade Italian food on offer at this, the South Yarra branch of Melbourne’s well-loved Pinocchio. It’s one of a family of three restaurants and it certainly delivers when it comes to simple, fresh and delicious plates that are ideal for sharing with good company. Sitting just off the bustle of Toorak Road and a hop, skip and jump away from South Yarra Station, Pinocchio’s interior is clean, crisp and the walls tell the story of Pinocchio. It’s the perfect spot for the little ones and the adults to enjoy the pleasantries of a proper Italian kitchen.

We weren’t lying when we said the food at Pinocchio’s South Yarra restaurant is ideal for sharing – there’s antipasti in the form of bufala mozzarella and calamari fritti, classic pasta plates and some extremely juicy cuts of prime meat, too. As good as all that is, though, for us, the main attraction at Pinocchio is the pizza. There are traditional toppings to suit all tastes and then diners can customise, depending on how doughy everyone is feeling: there’s regular, half metre, or full metre. Yes, you read that correctly, a full metre of pizza – we guess you have Pinocchio and his often rather long nose to thank for that, friends. Finish with a glass of wine from the vineyards of either Australia or Italy and you’ll soon see why this Melbourne institution is so popular. Reserve a table now!

Greeted at the door by Marco, very friendly and helpful with menu choices. We started with Aroncini balls, delicious! Then onto the main of veal, kale and mash potatoes Which, again, was absolutely delicious . Great experience, would highly recommend this Restaurant.

Delicious food, cheerful service. Noisy at times but only because people are having fun so if you're looking for a quiet conversation, maybe try somewhere else. I've been here several times and every time the food has been wonderful.
