Pros: Good pizza - great dessert

Went to Pinocchio yesterday. It has been completely renovated, more hip, has a cafe menu too. The main menu is basically the same as before, with some additions. The food was, as usual, great. The pizza is awesome, the traditional greek

The changing colors of the Pinocchio Palace sign are oddly mesmerizing. The food isn't, however, but that's okay--I specifically go there when I want a greasy calzone, which they do excellently. Most restaurants in the neighborhood do Greek or Italian, not both, so this seems like a good compromise place. The problem is that in doing both, it doesn't excel in either. Still, an Italian-American friend of mine who is extraordinarily picky about her Italian has made this her staple in the neighborhood, so draw your own conclusions. Excuse the contradictions; perhaps I'm just mirroring Pinocchio Palace itself.
