Good Italian food

We visited on a Friday evening. We got there about 6pm without a reservation and were able to get a table for the three of us. The restaurant was empty but soon started to fill up and in due course people were being turned away. We each had mains and desserts. All were excellently cooked. The staff... read more

Good food and friendly efficient staff. However, we were served our main course as our starter plates were cleared away. It feels more like a cafe than a restaurant with plastic table covers, bright lights and no candles, so not much ambience.

We went to the restaurant at 7.30 on a Friday night in February. The place was empty. We arrived just as the waitress was turning away a telephone booking. We asked for a table for two and inspite of an empty restaurant, was told they were fully booked. This place closes at 9am and doesn't seem to want to be... More

Great friendly staff, excellent atmosphere and proper home cooking with very good ingredients. Had the biggest steak Diane I have ever had- tender perfectly cooked to my request and intense sauce. Shame I had no room for the home made Tiramisu everyone was raving about. Wish this was on my doorstep.

This is a fantastic little restaurant. The food was absolutely gorgeous and plenty of it. The staff were nice and friendly and did not hassle you. You need to book to guarantee a table.

Living locally, we've been regular customers for many years; rarely a month goes by without at least one visit for takeaway pizza. (Indeed they also do excellent takeaway risotto and other dishes.) From time to time we have also eaten in.

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
