Great authentic Italian food. Tasty and delicious. The meatball and the goat dishes were outstanding but our dessert was the dish of the night a yummy dark chocolate pannacotta. We really enjoyed our night however it was a little noisy upstairs, downstairs seemed quieter
Sharon we are so pleased that you enjoyed your meals - especially the pannacotta! If you would like to request a table downstairs next time i'm sure that shouldn't be a problem. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Always enjoy dining here & on this occasion it was no exception. Food was great & although we did not get window table, the restaurant did email to advise why which was nice ( just a shame that the party who were placed in the window area did not bother to arrive).
Thanks Margaret for your lovely review on your most recent lunch here. We are sorry that we couldn't provide you with your request for a window table but i'm sure we will be able to do so upon your next visit!

Excellent service, very cosy restaurant. Food was delicious, all home made and very authentic. Portions sizes are decent, although start with an entree just to make sure. Will defintely return!

About Geppetto Trattoria

An Italian institution of Melbourne with the same family owning it since 1981; Geppetto's is an genuine neighborhood icon and a must visit before any local event at the MCG, AAMI park or Rod Laver stadiums directly across the street. Nino and his son serve up fresh, local and authentic dishes with a focus on pasta, seafood, offal and slow cooked dishes that are hard to find. Some of the more popular plates include homemade gnocchi, braised osso buco, double roasted pork belly, eggplant parmigiana and carpaccio just to name a few. Fresh whole fish options change daily depending what the season offers! - Jolimont station - 100 metre walk away - with two tram stops #48 and #75 (stop number 13) directly in front of us. BEST DISH: Gnocchi Ragú
