Description: Geppetto's incredible, award-winning pizza and homey Italian food has been a magnet for families since 1977. The restaurant was the first in the area to introduce the thick-crusted Sicilian pizza, with its inch high homemade crust. The menu also includes favorites such as homemade pastas, seafood selections, and a wide assortment of delicious entrees.

We went there last night for dinner. The ambiance is that of an italian casual restaurant; the decorated curved ceiling, the wall decorations and the table settings help. Our server gave us very friendly and efficient service. Some of us had a pizza; others had veal piccata and eggplant parmesan. The prices are extremely reasonable, the portions generous, and the food is excellent. Frankly, I am at a loss to find an issue with our evening, which was most enjoyable. We will definitely be back.

One complaint, on most recent visit we explained in specific detail that one party was allergic to garlic. Wait person promised no garlic, but the burger either had some garlic in the meat mix or too much residual garlic on the grill. Sickness didn't onset until an hour after we left. To be fair, the wait person did try. I had a cold cut sub, nice presentation and good-sized portion. For potato salad I subbed a mixed greens salad that was fresh and beautiful. Wife had a burger, cooked to med. rare to perfection. They gave her a huge mixed greens salad. Drinks were better than average. The background music was quite and non-obnoxious. Chairs tables and settings were clean bright and attractive. Outside tables pleasant.

We have gone off and on to Gepetto since it is a local restaurant for a number of years. But no more.

We went this Saturday evening, it was fairly crowded. They put an extra table in and put us there, we would have been glad to wait. The end result was that my chair and the chair of the next table practically touched each other. The customers went around, the wait staff went through, pushing me over and over again.

There are many, many good restaurants in the Bethesda/Rockville corridor, we will be giving those others our business, not Gepetto's going forward. The food isn't great enough to put up with the bad service.

We went to Gepetto because all the restaurants at Montgomery Mall were crowded. We ignored the first bad sign, which was that Gepetto was empty when the others were full. Now we know why - the pizza was completely prefab, from crust to sauce to mushrooms to olives - all out of a can or box. And the pasta sauce was insipid. And it wasn't even cheap. Gepetto was so mediocre we won't try its sister restaurant next door.
