Great food, fantastic atmosphere, excellent wine, friendly, professional service and not too over priced. The staff were knowledgeable and accommodating. Dessert was the highlight and the low light was the Belly pork dish.

We visited Melbourne to see the Degas exhibition and this restaurant was just around the corner from where we stayed. The dishes were excellent and the service was good. Recommended.

My partner and 2 you children went to the restaurant mid week for his birthday. We were given the best table in the house, service that was fantastic and recommendations for meals and deserts perfect for the kids. The food is traditional, tasty and it was just an all around pleasant experience I will definitely visit again.

This restaurant is across the road from the MCG. Parking was ok and a tram from the city stops out the front. The restaurant was full but not overly crowded so you could chat. Italian music played in the background. I ordered an entre size Calamari and an entre size pasta dish. (See photos). The two dishes were tasty, but... More

Love this restaurant. It is not necessarily 5 star but the food is fabulous Italian and we go time after time and it is consistently good. Crumbed veal is great, pasta is home-made and terrific and the service is fantastic. We always feel like part of the family when we go here. Opposite the MCG so they are also great... More

Melbourne and good Italian food just go together. And Geppetto's is a fine example. Very good food, very good service and BYO (at least on the night we went there). Really good Italian food should be based on a few key fresh ingredients and Geppettos does exactly that. Not a romantic place but if you want a place to eat... More
