Went here on Saturday night, busy without any feeling of being crowded. Had a great time. Good staff and really wonderful atmosphere. I had the most utterly divine black truffle and wild mushroom ravioli. I literally cannot rate this dish highly enough. It was perfection, balanced flavours, unctuous sauce, perfectly cooked pasta, seasoned expertly. Would have given the place 5... More

Lovely food not the best value but overall very decent authentic Italian Food. The new waiter (first night) tried really hard to please and made the evening special - well done. Lovely pastas, good pizzas and quality Italian dishes in a nice atmosphere. Very small portion of garlic bread!!! And avoid the orange cocktail, could do with a few candles,... More

After numerous phone calls managed to book Gepetto's in Helmsley. On arrival we were greeted and shown to our table. The décor is traditional, not smart with plastic table cloths. The service was a little slow but we soon tucked into a huge anti-pasta starter for one, which could have fed a table of four. Really good with Italian meats,... More

My friends and I stopped over in the town and wanted to find somewhere to eat. We read the reviews on trip advisor and decided that this Italian restaurant sounded great. We arrived and I liked the feel of the place immediately. We were welcomed and shown to our table. There was a good choice on the menu and plenty... More

The best Italian restaurant we have been to. The food is excellent and huge servings. The staff are very friendly. We will definitely be going again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for Italian food.

If you like Italian food, then you won't be disappointed. For sure you need to book, as queues are quite common. Have eaten here when staying in Helmsley over the last 6 years and it will be a a definite stop this year too.

On our first visit to Gepetto's, on a very quiet and cold Tuesday evening before Christmas week-end, we were kindly shown to a lovely corner table with cosy heating. Three guests settled to great food, wine and conversation...savouring our delicious pizza, meat and pasta dishes. As we were unbuttoning jeans and making ready for dessert, enticed by an irresistible gelato... More

We booked a table for 5.30 for a pre-show meal and were surprised to see so many people already eating there. While we were there a number of other tables were filled, so best to book. We had a very good meal - an excellent seafood pizza and a meatball with polenta chips special + coffee. Pleasant service and good... More

A wonderful friendly reception on a Saturday evening with no booking we were slotted in! Great menu! I had to courses from the specials board and they were delicious. Large portions hence no pudding! Great location in a fabulous part of the country. We've been coming to Helmsley for 30 years yet never eaten here! It won't be the last... More
