Another local option for Italian food has opened in Fort Collins: Pinocchios Incredible Italian, which takes the place of the old Applebees at 4306 S. College Ave.

The restaurant, according to The Coloradoan, 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 Valentine's Day evening.
