Participant: Pinocchio’s Bar and Grill


by Johnathan L. Wright

The original Pinocchio’s in Reno has been welcoming customers for nearly 25 years; the Sparks restaurant has been doing the same for 15 years. The family friendly menu is served in lively spaces filled with memorabilia. Look for dishes like calamari steak appetizer, a big ass salad, a Philly steak sandwich with cheddar and grilled vegetables, pizzas, and spaghetti and meatballs.

Owners J.P. and Barbara Pinocchio say they’re excited for Reno Food & Drink Week “to meet some new people and maybe see some familiar faces we haven’t seen in a while.”

Pinocchio’s is a fun, family owned and operated establishment that strives to give good, friendly service along with a quality product.
