Geppetto's incredible, award-winning pizza and homey Italian food has been a magnet for families since 1977. The restaurant was the first in the area to introduce the thick-crusted Sicilian pizza, with its inch high homemade crust. The menu also includes favorites such as homemade pastas, seafood selections, and a wide assortment of delicious entrees.

Ok but nothing to write home about

I've been here a handful of times and there is a reason I don't go back more often. The pizza is pretty good but I've not been impressed with the other dishes. One person I took there sent her dish back the last time I was there. It's not horrible but if I were recommending places to go for lunch... read more

Nine of us went to this great little restaurant near out hotel. It's tucked away kind of in the back of a high end strip mall. We never would have gone in except that my aunt recommended it, but it was great! The kids got kid portions of spaghetti and meatballs and the portions were huge! I got a chicken... More

Met colleagues for lunch. Located near 270 and Beltway. Easy, free parking. Meal selections for our different eating requirements. Tables separated enough for private conversations. Reasonable prices, good for.

We always go there to celebrate a friend 's birthday and split the meal amongst the group. It is always one of the most expensive of the restaurants we use to celebrate our birthdays but the service is excellent as well as the food.

We just happened upon Geppetto tucked in the back of the upscale Wildwood shopping center looking for a casual and inexpensive dining experience. We were not disappointed. Our party of three all enjoyed their dinners. I had the Lasagna Bolognese which was very nice and my companion had the salmon special. Service was attentive although there was a bit of... More

the good news...the pizza is edible if you're hungry...the white pizza overloaded with garlic...but still, edible...the bad news...the entrees are among the worst "food" i have encountered in years...the chicken marsala contained maybe an ounce or two or chicken with two pieces of mushroom...the accompanying spaghetti had a dab of marsala sauce rather than a decent marinara, for example...and it...

Geppetto's pizza is really good but it is also quite expensive. Not sure if it is good enough to warrant the extra expense.

This is our family's favorite pizza place. Little bit expensive but consistently good quality pizza, generous toppings. They are one of the few deep dish pizza places in Bethesda, moreover their thin crust pizza is also very tasty.

I had only ordered pizza here before and I decided to try one of their other Italian dishes, chicken Milanese. It was delicious. The serving was large, the meat was tender and the service was good. It is a small restaurant so reservations are advised.

Getting to eat outside on a nice evening and the service made up for the overdone chicken parm. It was also a little pricey for what it was but hey...you have to try new places.
