“What a great find....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

Our original choice of Restaurant did us a favour when they screwed up our booking.

Looking for a suitable alternative on a Saturday night was not the easiest thing to do in Melbourne.
After spending too much time searching Carlton for a parking spot we headed Richmond way and spotted Geppetto's and there was a parking spot right outside.

The restaurant holds around 40 people and it was packed.
Yes they could fit us in and we warmly welcomed.

The waiter service excellent ... a very knowledgeable and charming Italian who took pains to explain the menu in detail.

Service was prompt and our meals were exactly as ordered.

If you like genuine Italian cooking then this is for you.

Gepettos was a lucky find for us ... and yes, we'll be back

“Convenient to the Hilton”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2010

A cosy italian place, my experience was mixed - I was seated promptly and my order taken. Then I waited. And waited. My King Island bistecca arrived forty minutes later. I ordered it 'medium' but it was sadly overcooked : a definite 'well done'. Had waitstaff enquired as to whether everything was ok, they may have had the opportunity to remedy the situation. One would normally expect overcooking to completely destroy the culinary experience but such was the quality of the meat, it was still deliciously tender and a pleasure to eat.
