    Welcoming, relaxed atmosphere but with white tablecloths felt like a special evening out. Attentive and cheerful Italian-heritage wait staff. Unanimously we all had excellent food for all three courses . Fair prices. Absolutely no concerns. This will be one of our favourite places to eat out and take friends. Thankyou!!

    We are from interstate and visited this restaurant many years ago and we always wanted to go back. It was our Anniversary and it was just as good this time round as before. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    I love that byo wines are accepted at reasonable corkage rate of $12/btl. And their wine list is very good anyway!

    We have been to Geppettos many times over the years and it has always been a pleasure with great food and service. Having BYO is excellent too. And we shall continue to return.

    One of the very best Italian restaurants in Melbourne. Great special deals inc a $30 Monday night offer which is very tasty. Nino and staff are very friendly and attentive. A winner.

    We are a waitress than started that day, she was friendly and professional but there was another fairly young waitress than not only never smiled once but actually sour. Not a good impression, I watched her deliver food to other tables and never once did she converse or smile. One table was a group of quite elderly gentleman, I’m sure that would have appreciated a warmer reception and at least a smile.
