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.

“Worst place ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This place is horrible. I ordered some simple penne and it tasted like microwaved store bought penne with old ragu sauce. Make you a favor and go to McDonalds.

“Great little Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Delicious food. Wonderful pizza.....entrees are a bit heavy. Eaten there many times with friends and family. Always an enjoyable experience. Friendly staff; good prices. Especially love the fresh salads because of the high quality ingredients.

“A Real Disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Arriving here we were informed that they would not honor a Groupon deal on the weekend despite no notice of this when the purchase was made. The food was barely eatable. The bread was tastless, the calamari was rubbery, and the chicken cantelloni was just a mound of tasteless food. The wine list is short and way over priced starting in the high $30s. Highly recommended that one NOT eat here.

“way over priced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

we went there for lunch one day and the service was awful. Not sure if maybe there was one guy working the whole place or it that is how they operate. Food was not great either.
