“No good. Horrible. Very bad...everything!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The place was packed and the restaurant was understaffed. Although the restaurant easily has 30 tables and a huge bar only 2 stressed out servers and one unenthusiastic bartender where working. Everything was hectic and slow. Food was served luke warm and tasted nuked. My veal was tougher than shoe leather. It was either poor quality or over cooked. My partners pasta was tasteless and our appetizers were barely dive bar quality. Desserts were nothing special... store bought and fancied up with hersheys syrup. This place is either overrated or they are writing their own review! I will never ever go again!

“Surprising find in Ware of All Places”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We've been frequent guests at the sister restaurant, Pinocchio's but visited Gheppetto's for the first time last weekend. Similar menu but not strictly Italian - which for us is a good thing. Nice decor, good service and very good food. We'll be back

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

This restaurant in located in downtown Ware. You can be seated in the pub/bar area or in the dining room. We choose the dining room as it is quieter. We had an appetizer of traditional calamari which were very tender. There is a choice of the having marinara sauce or tossed with olive oil, peppers, onions, etc, which the waitress said were very good, which we did not opt for. I had baked stuffed shrimp. There were 5 medium-size shrimp and stuffing, which I wasn’t fond of at first bite but was okay. They were in a casserole dish with a moderate amount of butter. My companion had veal parm which he said was very good. If after your first try you plan on going again, ask for a Rewards card which is scanned each time you go in and when you accumulate $200 you get $20 off your bill. Parking is on the street when available but there is also a lot next to the old Friendly’s restaurant adjacent to Ghepetto’s. Waitress was very attentive.

“Nice place, decent bar, weak wine list”
Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

We ate there tonight and agreed that we'd be back when we're in the area. My only complaint: there's a nice winery up the street with a dry white as good as a Pouilly-Fuisse but none of the local wine was available. They did have the excellent. Berkshire Steel Rail pale ale, which I enjoyed with the chicken Marsala.

“New place - very good”
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.
