I didn't stay long so I can't really judge the atmosphere but I had a great meal. I would definitely go in with family and friends.

Home style type cooking that you can get at home. The food seems to have deteriorated since I was there last. The eggplant parmigan was lukewarm, too much mozzarella cheese and sauce and not enough eggplant which was oily, and seemed like it was warmed up in the micro-wave.

I've been here a few times on dates as well as once on my birthday. The food is amazing, almost as if you are in Italy. The service is incredible, the manager always comes up to you, took my coat in the winter. Small place, but romantic inside. Highly recommend!!

My wife and I went for dinner last night after reading good reviews here. Small, cozy place, wonderful staff. We ordered off the menu, as I was not in the mood for the special. Bread came and was a bit disappointing; no olive oil, just butter, one piece of ciabatta and a bunch of slices of nondescript white italian bread. The ciabatta was good anyway. Had the swordfish carpacchio on arugula, which was quite good. The stracciatella soup was good, not too salty like in many places. We had the truffle tortellina alla vodka for our first plate, and it was excellent; perfect balance of flavors. We had the saltimbocca for the second plate, which was good, but not excellent - slightly overdone, the veal could have been more tender. A glass of house Montepulciano red went well with the dinner. We finished with a couple of decaf capuccinos which were very good, and a hazelnut cream filled pastry puff with mascarpone cream (special dessert). Excellent dessert. The service was impeccable, with waters refilled promptly, too many plates on the very small table being arranged effectively, grated parmesan brought without asking and left there for the whole meal, etc. They didn't have to leave the towering peppermill though. Total bill came to just under $100 (without tip). Overall, one of the better Italian places in the city, and the best I've found so far on the Upper East Side. We'll be back!

My husband and I found Pinnochio when we first started dating and have gone ever since. We take every visiting family/friends to this restaurant and they are speechless after taking one bite. My husband in particular loves the tarimisu... I love the fettucini pinnochio.... but all is amazing!
