Pinocchio is a little star in the village of Ranelagh. In days where service and standards are slipping in so many restaurants, this is one of the many areas in which Pinocchio has never faltered. Every person walking in their door is welcomed and acknowledged by their friendly staff. After that, there is the food! What can I say, always good, always fresh, always changing and truly a performance worth waiting for and I would highly recommend it!!

Went here for the first time last Saturay. Great atmosphere and tasty food, a break from the 'norm' Italian restaurants you normally find in Dublin. Great craic with a few live songs thrown in to the mix. I would definately recommend

This is a terrific little restaurant/cafe under the Ranelagh Luas St. Very authentic, fresh Italian cusine with the best coffee on this side of town. The staff are very polite & enthusiastic and service is excellent. I would recommend the dinner rather the lunch menu & It's definitely a good place for a glass of wine & some cold cuts before heading into town on the Luas. However it remains to be seen how it fairs during the summer as the interior space is more suited to winter dining and is a little dark.

I have to say I was a little disappointed by this place. Maybe my expectations were too high given my good experience of "Sapori", its sister cafe in Bray. The place was empty which maybe didn't help the atmosphere but saying that the staff were very friendy. I ordered the Pinnochio panini and while it was nice, I've definitely had better. The bread was a bit to much on the crusty side/verging on stale and was awkward to eat, it was toasted bread with a filling as opposed to a toasted panini. It's probably worth a second chance so I would go back .

I like this place a lot, it feels like a proper Italian cafe. The staff are Italian, and their enthusiasm for the food and drink they are serving came as a pleasant surprise.
The prices are very reasonable; around 5 euro for a panino, and 2.40 for a double espresso - both are excellent.

First off, I must confess that I'm a big fan of Pinocchio's sister café Sapori 'Campo dè Fiori' in Bray, therefore I'd be lying (no pun intended!) if I said that I didn't go here with high expectations. Realising that Sapori 'Campo dè Fiori' is a tough act to follow, Pinocchio Café does pretty well as sequels go! The location is perfect, tucked away under the busy platform that is Ranelagh LUAS stop. This adds to the raw Italian café feel with TVs blaring (something Italian), the bustling main street outside and the passing of trams overhead. I was delighted to see that they had brought Moak the Sicilian coffee they use in Sapori 'Campo dè Fiori' in Bray with them. (On a side note, Moak has surpassed Illy as my favourite brew!). The coffee machines are the real deal too, not some fancy pump driven mechanical device but an old skool manual lever operated one - kudos! The panino was good too, so all in all the perfect pit stop before (or after) a ride on the LUAS.
