Located in the heart of East Melbourne, Geppetto Trattoria serves up simple, rustic dishes with a particular focus on pasta, seafood, and slow-cooked meals.

“…best Italian in ages”

Conveniently located across the road from the MCG and the Melbourne Sporting and Entertainment Precinct, Geppetto Trattoria is the perfect place for a pre-match or pre-concert meal.

“My new favourite for delicious Italian comfort food…”


In 1981, Nino Cea opened Geppetto Trattoria with the vision to create an unpretentious eatery that focused on Italian home-style cooking. This idea was inspired by those eateries found in his hometown region of Puglia in Italy.

Today, with the assistance of his son Adriano, the vision is still strong, and the traditional Italian home-style cooking continues.
