Pinocchio Ristorante

The Pinocchio Italian Restaurant has only been open a week but its red signage already has a presence on Unley Road and it has its own web-site. It takes over from the old GGB's restaurant at 50 Unley Road, that was reviewed here earlier. It has the linen tablecloths and napkins that perhaps were used at GGB's and are one of the hallmarks of a fine restaurant. The owners are recently from Italy and have the challenge of setting up the restaurant and working out how to use local products.

Marco, the waiter volunteered to try to make Merkel a thick Italian hot chocolate. The attempt was not completely successful. While the flavour of the chocolate was good and rich, the consistency was thin. Marco also mentioned that he would normally top such a drink with a special whipped cream that was not available. Still, I will add this to my list of Italian hot chocolates as I believe he will go to some effort to perfect this in the future. The drink was three dollars and served in a Lavazza coffee cup.
