I have already given Geppetto 5 stars for the steak, mash and chianti gravy and I have not yet had dessert! Great work team and we will do again and come back in person when we can. Thanks

Our meal here prior to the dreaded lockdown was excellent! From an interesting menu (strangely lacking any poultry dish) with some good specials, we enjoyed delicious traditional Italian dishes, good sized servings, beautifully presented with a great balance of flavours and very tasty. Prices for...both food and wine were very reasonable, the atmosphere was pleasant and the service was exceptional.More

So lockdown is with us again. It could be dreary but take heart, Geppetto’s is again doing a terrific takeaway menu. We ordered the arancini and family sized lasagna (generous for 4 hungry adults). A wonderful way to spend a Saturday night - we would...all highly recommend.More

Visited recently and we enjoyed the the food and ambience. Pleasant meal my partner and I shared the antipasto and enjoyed the wide variety of seafood, meats and vegetables. For mains we had the pork loin and herbed veal medallions which was very good. A...nice wine list is available. Lovely venue and the service was great.More

The entire experience at Geppetto is unforgettable. Adriano and Louisa were the perfect hosts and our meal and their hospitality took us back to Italy instantly which brought back so many wonderful memories for us. Your iconic trattoria is a treasure! This is a “must...do”, for a traditional Italian experience to be forever savoured. Bellissimo 🍷🍽More

We have been going to Geppetto for years but never reviewed - probably because we feel so comfortable there. Great food and always friendly staff. We live in the area so it is easy to choose it as a food destination but it is the...ambiance that draws us back. good to see that a fusion selection is coming. D&EMore

We have been going to Geppetos for many years. Recently we visited with 2 friends from Sydney. This was a very disappointing experience. The food was substandard. Two of had pork porcetta. This was, of course, sliced from a roast. However, it then seems to...have gone into some sort of sandwich maker or the equivalent, presumably to warm it. When it arrived at our table, it was well and truely charred on both sides and was very fatty. It was accompanied by a small portion of roast potatoes, which were surprisingly tasteless and some capsicum. One other person had salmon, which was small and overcooked. Another had an entree portion of roast turkey wrapped in prosciutto whcih was dry and only accompanied by toast. This was well below the standard we had come to expect.More
