We live in London and visited Gepetto's for my Dad's Birthday on Friday night. 9 of us dined and everyone's food was excellent. Not sure about previous reviews saying that this place is only good due to no competition and that the prices are high? Come and live in the South for a few weeks and you'll encounter far worse...

Top prices for sub-standard food. You wouldn't have thought that you could go wrong with pasta but Gepetto's managed it! Parmagiana was fine, but 16 quid for a bit of chicken. The funny thing is the place is nearly always busy. Maybe it was a bad night!

We could actually get a table on a saturday night so instead got pizza to take away and ate them on a bench in the square, very good pizza and garlic bread, maybe a little high on price, but worth it.

Although I enjoyed my evening meal at Gepetto in Helmsley I thought the food was the sane standard I expect at Ask and Prezzo but much more expensive as they don't offer any discounts or deals ever. Very small restaurant away from center of the town but it seems popular with the locals probably due to lack of competition.

From the outside this looks like a very formal restaurant, inside it has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. My 6 yr old was made to feel welcome. Service was quick, the food was hot and well presented and most importantly really, really tasty.

My wife and I visited Gepetto's at 5.30pm and politely requested a table for two. The waitress asked unsmilingly and very sharply "Have you booked?" I replied that we hadn't but looking around noticed that there were at least 10 tables empty at the time. After a lengthy consultation of her bookings register she condescending said that she could manage... More

We booked a couple of days before went. Glad we did as it was very busy. Consequently we were waiting a long time once our orders had been taken.However extra garlic bread was given as way of an apology for our wait. Overall the food was of a good quality.We certainly weren't rushed.House red and white weren't bad at all... More

Not the most extensive dish choices on the menu, food was ok but could have been better, some of our food was just on the warm side (should have complained really, but didn't). Also restaurant was on the cold side, especially sat near the window and also bottled beer very expensive at £3.95 per small bottle.

Plainly we didn't understand that we were on a time limit for our meal, I've NEVER been so aware in any other restaurant that the staff wanted us to finish and leave so they can go home. As soon as we finished the starter the plates were whipped away and the main course served. The same happened after the main... More
