The Hotel Pinocchio features seven clean, comfortable, recently refurbished guest rooms. All are equipped with full bath, minibar, television, telephone and Casablanca ceiling fan. Located on the quaint, tree-lined Piazza del Mercato in Frascati's historic center, the Pinocchio is no more than a few minutes' walk to all of the town's attractions including the railway and bus stations. Hourly rail service brings guests into the heart of Rome in less than 30 minutes while a reliable bus network provides connections to Rome's Underground and to other historic communities in the Castelli Romani. With its proximity to the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), the European Space Agency, ESA Centre for Earth Observation (ESRIN), The Spaceguard Foundation (SGF), and the Ente per le Nuove Tecnologie, l'Energia e l'Ambiente (ENEA), the Pinocchio is also the ideal hotel choice for the business traveler.


Frascati, home of the Locanda Pinocchio, is often called ''the pearl of the Castelli Romani.'' Long known for its hospitality, Frascati offers visitors a taste of life in a small, sophisticated Italian town while being only a 25-minute train ride from the heart of Rome. 
With roots going back to ancient Rome, Frascati is home to the Scudrerie Aldobrandini Museum with its permanent exhibit of archeological treasures as well as special exhibitions. The gardens of the Villa Aldobrandini offer superb landscaping, spectacular views of Rome and the countryside, and are admired by locals and visitors alike. Frascati also hosts many concerts, theatre productions, a monthly antiques fair, and other special events and festivals throughout the year. A highlight is the yearly 10-day Carnival with parades, music and seasonal culinary specialties.
Frascati is the ideal jumping off point for visits to the Eternal City and the other history-rich towns and villages of the Castelli Romani.
The European Space Agency, the Italian National Nuclear Research Institute, the Italian National Agricultural Research Center, and the Italian Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment are located nearby.
The Locanda Pinocchio's owners/managers -- the brothers Gaetano, Renato and Marco Blasi are third generation restaurateurs. They offer exceptional service and will do everything possible to make your visit memorable.
