    Great food and great atmosphere. On a constructive criticism side it would be great if the soup of the day was accompanied with some foccacias rather than having to order it separately.

    Geppetto Trattoria (Owner)

    Grazie Mille Sanjeeva for your amazing feedback :)

    Seafood spaghetti- tasty and loaded with seafood stopped me! No room for desert. This is a clearly a well managed professional restaurant serving very good food and a generous by the glass pour too!

    Geppetto Trattoria (Owner)

    Grazie mille Nick for your fantastic review on your most recent visit here at Geppetto's. We hope to see you again soon!
