Always good. Fair value. Think the menu has shrunk and that may be due to present circumstances.
Thank you all.

Food is pretty good but I feel slightly over priced. Main concern was the temperature of the restaurant, it felt very cold. Staff were lovely and very attentive.

Lovely dinner for three of us, crab and prawn fettuccine was absolutely delicious. If I had a niggle it would be that it was a little chilly but that would be being picky, overall lovely evening.

Myself and 3 friends went to Gepettos whilst on a weekend away in the Helmsley area.

We all ordered a starter and a main. The food was served promptly and was beautiful. My friend said it is the best Carbonara she’s ever had. I had the Bolognese Linguine, it was very tasty and portion sizes were perfect. The staff were warm and accommodating.

We went around 4pm on Saturday, it was extremely quiet, I hope it got busier on the night. However, it seemed to have a few take out orders going out.

I will definitely visit again when I’m in the area!

Absolutely wonderful meal and fantastic decor. We had the antipasti which was divine and mussels and lasagne. Creative, perfectly combined dishes...superb. Lovely welcome and efficient friendly service. Innovative, cosy, ambient decor... It was lovely to see such an artistic flare at work. Covid safe and very comfortable. Can't wait to come back.

When we arrived we were seated at a table near the door but asked if we could move to another towards the middle of the restaurant, and the waiter kindly prepared one for us straight away.
The staff are always friendly and polite, and the food is worth the wait, as it is good with generous portions.

We decided to try Gepettos after reading reviews from other dinners. We were very glad we did. The restaurant staff were excellent and the Covid 19 precautions were taken. We tried the tomato and mozzarella salad to start, which was lovely, really fresh and full of flavour. I had the pepperoni pizza and my partner had the calzone. Both were lovely, but we didn't have room for dessert. The malbec red wine was very good. As we had such a lovely evening we decided to go back for dinner the next day.
