Finally we have confirmation. Pinocchio, the Italian restaurant in the south park blocks, has closed. From its opening, it was criticized for the off-putting renderings of art which featured Pinocchio noses, and the overall, somewhat garish decorating. These things could have been overlooked, but the food never rose above mediocre. Still, it is sad to see a restaurant going under, especially when jobs are hard to find these days.
Here is their final note:
Pinocchio has closed its doors to the public. We want to thank
everyone for their great love and support for us these past two years.
We appreciate your patronage tremendously and hope to see you all in
some other form in the future.
Please know that Pinocchio was a business based on love and genuine
appreciation for food, wine, and friendship. We had a terrific time hosting you here as our
family. Again thank you so much.
