Delicious Italian food, good relaxed atmosphere, great for families and couples. Staff friendly. Toilet is upstairs so might prove difficult for diners who have mobility problems.

Myself and my partner had a meal here during our weekend away. The food was fresh, especially the delicious mussels I ordered. We both had lasagne for the main course and it was a generous portion full of flavour. The cheesecake was also very nice and creamy, my partner enjoyed his ice cream sundae which was beautifully presented. The staff... More

If you like Italian go for this. The food was fantastic - good portions, lovely sauces with wonderful taste, great specials board, interesting menus and really nice service. Nothing posh or fancy but who needs it when the food is so good. Don't mind paying s bit extra when it's this good. Couldn't fit in a desert which was a... More

My friends and I spent a week in Helmsley and ate at Gepetto's twice, once on Saturday night to celebrate a birthday and during the week. We all ordered a different course on the Saturday and all 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Three of us returned on Thursday, again ordering a different course and the food was excellent....

We ate here twice during our stay in Helmsley. The food is excellent, well presented and a reasonable price. There is a very good choice. Staff are very friendly. It is best to book as the restaurant is so popular.

Lovely bespoke Italian away from the madding crowd. All good staple items on the menu with a lovely atmosphere , a great ( and I emphasis great ) music selection, service is pretty cool - oh and the chef comes out to speak to the clients. Old school - but ain't that the best ? Top marks.

We went twice in our week in Helmsley, the first time we chose well, mixed meats antipasto, and our tortellini and rissotto mains were really good, so good we went again. Second time, I had rather poor, garlic mushrooms starter but my wife enjoyed her green lipped mussels with white wine sauce. For mains, my pizza was stodgy and too... More

Morning Austinspeedy, Thank you for your review, my apologies if you didn't enjoy your meals the second time round, as you have said, for your own taste, perhaps you chose better on your first visit. I don't believe the ravioli made your wife ill; I think it might have something to do with the fact that your wife had two... More

We booked a table late afternoon for the same evening & im glad we did as even mid week they were very busy. Once the food arrives, it's not hard to see why. Delicious pastas with very flavoursome sauces. We both had specials, mine a light & tasty lobster ravioli, my partner had a steak tagliatelle dish. Service was cheerful... More
