Nino, Adriano, Frank and Julia gave us the best food choices and their service is beyond this world... thank you for a night to remember, coming to your restaurant is like going to Italy. Delicious food, Italian wine and genuine company.

Beautiful smile and warm service from Adriano, our first dining experience at Geppetto Trattoria and certainly not the last!
We started with the most delicious Focsccia di Casa Bread you can ever taste followed by Antipasto platter, then we ordered special pasta followed by sharing dessert, Fig Twist is a must to try, just divine.

Came here for a late dinner on a Friday night. We had a group of 14 and we were accommodated very well in the upstairs dining room. Between us we ordered a selection of starters and a couple of bottles of wine.
The staff were all fantastic, including the chef who came out to greet us and explain the specials.
I had the Pancetta di Maiale or pork belly - very hearty serving and delicicous. As such a large group it was slightly tricky splitting our bill, however the staff were helpful and patient in letting us do this.
