Another local option for Italian food has opened in Fort Collins: Pinocchios Incredible Italian, which takes the place of the Applebees on 4306 South College Avenue.

The restaurant, according to The Colordoan, is a chain that started in Longmont by owner Annie Vick and also has locations in Niwot, Frederick, and Loveland.

The restaurant is open, but they have a tentative "grand opening" party on February 14, so make a reservation for a surefire romantic evening.
