“An excellent Italian meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

We called here on the off chance of a table as we were staying in Helmsley for night and celebrating our anniversary. We had an excellent meal full of flavour and the portions were excellent I couldn't manage all my main meal as there was so much. We had a bruschetta to start and I think it was the best I had ever had it was so fresh. The staff were alternative and the atmosphere was great will definitely be back thanks.

“A little Italy in North Yorkshire”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Gepetto's is a small family run restaurant in the heart of Helmsley. The menu is very varied to suit all tastes, including traditional pasta and pizza dishes and very good. They open at 5.30 pm so if you are visiting for the day you can eat before leaving. In the summer booking is recommended. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. N.B. toilet facilities are on first floor so not suitable if you can't do stairs.

“Rich risotto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Ate here alone after a long days walking and was very impressed by the friendly service and the quality of the food which was tasty plus seemingly freshly prepared. I had the seafood risotto which had a good selection of fish and shellfish adorning it and risotto not too dry and dense which sadly is too often the case in so-called Italian restaurants. All washed down with a large glass of quality red wine rounded off with a coffee - just what I needed. Prices not cheap so could get costly for a group meal.

“Pizza like (an Italian) Mamma makes it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

What a great (calming) Italian atmosphere and Pizza like (an Italian) Mamma makes it. Good value and very nice mature staff. They do take outs as well....

Did I mention the situation?

Helmsley Market Square - one of the top locations in the UK. Don't know it? Google it....see there soon!

“Not so happy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We have used Gepotts several times in the past and always find them friendly and hospitable.
It was a special occasion that we booked for on Saturday last and got in early doors as we know how busy it can be.
The starters we had we could not fault but two of the mains where wholly unsatisfactory both in quantity and taste( it was off the specials board).
We did pass comment when asked if everything was OK but the waitress quickly turned and didn't engage anymore. Subsequently a garlic bread and a bowel of chips were ordered to supplement.
When I came to pay up I passed comment again about the two mains and also to emphasise I pointed out that the table behind had the same but it was a far superior quantity. To add the description of the main course was totally misleading.
