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

My friend and I visit Gepettos every 2 months or so. It has recently changed hands but the food is as good as ever although on this occasion we did find both our main dishes to be rather 'hot' with seasoning which tended to mask the other lovely flavours. The service is always excellent and there is always a buzz... More

Our first visit since new ownership. Just as good if not better than before. One of the best Italian meals I have had outside of Italy. Not the most salubrious of venues, very plain and simple, not sure about the tins of tomatoes in the window, but it is clean and comfortable. The staff front of house are the same... More

Popped in, managed to get a table before it filled up as booking is recommended. Nice atmosphere, busy but staff make the place work and were great. Had a superb sirloin steak, my wife had a beef fillet fettuccine dish, both were excellent, well worth a visit

We made a booking (advisable as gets busy) & had a pleasant evening. Polite service, if a little slow at times & the food was very good, very tasty. Decent value & would definitely return. Restaurant gets very warm & no ventilation, but clearly an older building.

Thank Degsy79
