We've lived in the area for 3 years and used to enjoy visiting Gepetto's, but the last couple of times we've visited we've been disappointed. The staff have become much less friendly and welcoming, and the food standards have dropped considerably. I ordered Saltinbocca di maiale on our last visit, and the pork was very undercooked. It's not the first time we've had a problem like this so I decided not to complain this time, and just not return. the menu hasn't changed in 3 years (apart from a few specials) and the food is often preprepared for reheating, making for dull (and salty) vegetables.

Great range of dishes and unlike some Italian restaurants the pasta dishes are fantastic...especially a special involving avocado, prawns, chilli and linguine. Yum!

Generous, good Italian food unmarred by chilli in everything as in so many 'Italian' eateries these days (I blame Jamie). Super friendly staff. Wide choice. Good wine.

Good little Italian in the heart of Helsby, not open on Monday's Tuesday's or Wednesday's. Reasonably priced with very friendly staff.
