Pinocchio's, Minehead.

Not terrible. But could be so much better

From the outside it looks like a quaint Italian with a nice looking menu. 

My wife and I ate the deep fried goats cheese to start. Quite tasty but it was a pity that it looked a little too much like something you would buy in the freezer compartment of a supermarket. Assuming it was home made, a more natural looking breadcrumbs would have worked better. 

Our 4 year old demolished one of their pizzas and I really enjoyed the sauce on the seafood pasta. Overall, the food was quite tasty.

But they let themselves down on the detail. A bit of Italian music would work well - certainly better than U2. And I'm not convinced the pasta was home made.

I don't think the restaurant deserves the poor reviews it gets on tripadvisor but it could be so much better.
