Been trying for days to book a table but phone not being answered - very frustrating!!! Surely someone is around between 5 and 9.

If you like Italian food, then you won't be disappointed. For sure you need to book, as queues are quite common. Have eaten here when staying in Helmsley over the last 6 years and it will be a a definite stop this year too.

On our first visit to Gepetto's, on a very quiet and cold Tuesday evening before Christmas week-end, we were kindly shown to a lovely corner table with cosy heating. Three guests settled to great food, wine and conversation...savouring our delicious pizza, meat and pasta dishes. As we were unbuttoning jeans and making ready for dessert, enticed by an irresistible gelato... More

We booked a table for 5.30 for a pre-show meal and were surprised to see so many people already eating there. While we were there a number of other tables were filled, so best to book. We had a very good meal - an excellent seafood pizza and a meatball with polenta chips special + coffee. Pleasant service and good... More

A wonderful friendly reception on a Saturday evening with no booking we were slotted in! Great menu! I had to courses from the specials board and they were delicious. Large portions hence no pudding! Great location in a fabulous part of the country. We've been coming to Helmsley for 30 years yet never eaten here! It won't be the last... More

We've eaten here several times over the years and it never fails to impress. Great food and they sell Amarone which is excellent value at around £35 a bottle. Please note you will probably need to book even during the week.

Good food, which is excellently presented, immaculate service from the team, and a wonderful friendly ambiance makes Gepettos frankly the very best restaurant around town. Highly recommendable!!

The only “Italian” for miles around… Nice atmosphere and decent food. The risottos do not quite match the excellent ones made by Dino (the previous owner). Hopefully the new team will get there soon.

The Arts Centre in Helmsley is the fantastic host venue for a wide variety of excellent shows/films/talks. It's lovely to have a pre-theatre dinner with friends - but not so easy for coeliacs to fine safe gf Italian food. Well, here's a cracker of a restaurant! I've been lucky enough to eat here twice recently - both times the service... More
