I've been going here for years with my family and recently took my partner for the first time. I always have the portofino which is beautiful every time however my partner was a bit underwhelmed with his salmon pasta dish and we found the prices (especially of the starters) very steep compared to other Italians we regularly visit in York....

Helmsley is a picture book place, especially at this time of year with the Christmas lights so it is a shame that, on entering this restaurant, it is still the same old dull interior with nary a candle to be seen on the tables. Food is OK. Only one Italian restaurant in this area and again, a bit sad that... More

We have probably visited Gepetto's around 5 times over 2 years and they always get top marks from us. Sometimes we book, once or twice we have dropped in as a couple, but they always give us the same friendly and attentive service. The menu is a good size and as a family, we tend to order from across the... More

Cheap and cheerful, still early days, although service was very efficient food rather disappointing to say it is the only Italian restaurant in Helmsley and therefore captive audience

On a recommendation from our hotel staff we tried Gepettos during our visit to Helmsley and we weren't disappointed. Fresh ingredients, cooked to order, excellent tasty dishes. Was busy even on a Tuesday evening, good idea to book a reservation. The menu has plenty to choose from, there is something for everyone. We had the spaghetti carbonara and the risotto... More

Been eating here for years and years and the standard is always the same - excellent. Whatever you choose from risotto to their wonderful spaghetti bolanaise you are assured of good food, freshly cooked. Its always a lively spot to eat, full of people of all ages. The only downside is that it closes fairly early but give it a... More

WE were warmly greeted on arrival and as they knew we were bringing my Wife's Guide Dog, the waitress found us a great seat in a very convenient spot and provided a little bowl of dog biscuits for him. Service was smooth , not rushed but with no long waits so that our meal was consumed at a relaxing, leisurely... More

I've often passed Gepetto's, and wondered whether it's any good, now I know. My wife and daughter called in on our way home as we both fancied a night free of cooking and washing up! We found a warm, friendly welcome at 5.30. Menu in hand and drinks order taken, service was good. Some reviews comment on a dated interior,... More
