We had two meals here. The first was lunch when the restaurant was fairly quiet (3 tables including ours) and the service was very good. The menu is in Italian and the waiter took time to explain what each dish was and also advised on...More

We'll get right to the point on this restaurant. Nice people, good service, but complete mediocrity. Pastas were uninspired and not even that good (speaking in terms of comparisons to other places in the area). The lamb and pork that we ordered were just shy...More

My husband and I had a delightful dinner at La Bettola di Geppetto. Highly recommend the lentil soup and pasta dishes on the menu. Home style authentic cooking that made us feel very happy indeed.

Extremely friendly staff and tasty and affordable food made our evening splendid. The lentils in the soup were self-cultivated. The secondo platti of cheese was slightly too plain but we combined our meals (other was lamb).

Great local food and wine and wonderful service. The lentil soup was absolutely delicious and so was actually all the food. Don't miss this place. Highly recommended!
