“New place - very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

On the main street ( route 9) in Ware (where? -don't say it. They are sick of this.), Massachusetts. We have been there twice for lunch. Both times excellent. Many Italian choices. Friendly staff and owners.

“Great Little Grille in Ware, Ma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

Recommended by a friend. Outside it looks like a small updated establishment in an old Main st building. Inside is a large bar with a large dining room. Very nicely decorated! Started with the usual drinks, a Margaretta and SteelRail Beer. Appetizer was Bruschetta with garlic bread, tomato plus? & olive oil. Fabulous! Wife had Mac&Cheese with Bacon(great) and I had Fish&Chips(one of the best I ever had). Desert included a Spicy Bloody Mary & a DF Founders Beer. Kim,our waitress let us go at our usual slow pace which is much appreciated. This looks like the best Pub?Grill/Restaurant in Ware!

“Almost Makes It”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

We've been to Gheppetto's several times and our meals are usually ... good. The entrees are creative. The scallops in coconut milk with shredded apples were imaginative and well prepared. BUT they were served with sides of BLAND mashed potatoes and even blander carrots totally devoid of seasoning. The excellent short ribs were served with the same sides but at least the sauce from the ribs seasoned the potatoes a little. Service was extremely uneven on our recent visit. Appetizers (wild mushroom ravioli -- yum) came out promptly but we waited more than an hour after that for our entrees.

“Fantastic food, Great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

We've been there twice so far and I was impressed both times. The risotto was cooked perfectly as was the scallops. The beer and wine are reasonably priced and on Saturday nights they have a band. We will definitely be back.
