An Italian institution of Melbourne – with the same family owning it since 1981 – Geppetto’s is a genuine neighbourhood icon and a must visit before any local event at the MCG, AAMI Park or Rod Laver Stadiums – conveniently located directly across the street.
Note that Jolimont Station is only a 100 metre walk away – with tram Numbers 48 and 75 (stop No. 13) directly in front of us.
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.
“… best Italian in ages”
“My new favourite for delicious Italian comfort food…”
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 – and fresh whole fish options change daily depending what the season offers!
“Very reliable restaurant wth great service and quality food”
“Panzerotti (fried calzone) night. It doesn’t get much better”
