Great little restaurant

Reserved a table for two as suggested, which was just as well because the place was packed for a Wednesday evening. Good food, good service, good prices. They do close quite early but as a small family restaurant that's their choice. If you do your research, you won't get caught out!

Fantastic Italian Restaurant with amazing food. My son smelt the fresh bread and wanted to eat there. Unfortunately we had a dog with us on holiday, so had to have a takeaway, but well worth it. Excellent Linguini de Antonio and Lobster Ravioli - DIVINE! And of course garlic bread etc. Well worth a visit, fantastic friendly staff, great takeaway... More

We visited Gepetto's to celebrate my wife's birthday, I booked it after reading all the reviews on tripadvisor and was not disappointed , the staff were very attentive but not overpowering and the food was to die for

This is my local Italian restaurant and I have been several times. On the last visit I took a few friends to celebrate my birthday. It never disappoints. The food is always freshly cooked and very tasty. Nice ambiance, rustic Italian theme. Good for a nice relaxing meal with a few friends and a glass of wine.

Happened across this restaurant by accident, but what Luck!! We managed to get a table although you usually have to book up in advance and what a feast it was! The ingredients are all freshly sourced and they don't scrimp in laying on a really fine meal and we quickly booked up a return meal the next evening, the manageress... More

fantastic food cooked from scratch. Good portion size no scrimping on special ingredients, tasty, hot and the staff were really good. Must book in advance as fully booked 630 onwards thurs fri sat!! And they use the tables twice over. Service is prompt friendly and we really enjoyed our evening. Just a shame it's 230 miles away !

Really enjoyed this spot and whilst it is relatively traditional Italian food, perhaps there is nothing much wrong with that! I had an insalata tricolore to start with followed by a delicious and very generous helping of pasta with spring onions and cherry tomatoes. My wife enjoyed her pork escalopes with fries done just right! Not the cheapest spot but... More

We as a family have been visiting Gepetto's for the last 9 years or so and have never been let down. The service is very friendly and efficient and the food is excellent. Only one small critisism, would like a little more time between courses to allow you to enjoy the food tastes.
