Geppetto’s housemade sauces, bread and pizza dough lay the foundation for delicious lunch and dinner in a family-friendly atmosphere.
Give it a try you will love it.
Best Italian food I have had in a long time, out side my wife's that is. Great home cooked meal, We had Spaghetti , Ravioli s, and Lasagna plus home made Italian sausage and meat balls. yes we brought about half home. Moderately priced, Excellent place to go, Service was excellent.
A long wait for lunch
We went for lunch on a Monday with our clients. It was nicely decorated inside with a full bar. The server was really nice. We kept hearing the microwave start and stop a couple times, the food took forever to come out and we were the only ones in the restaurant. The food finally came and the pasta combinations had so much sauce you couldn’t tell what the lasagna was and what the ravioli was. The chicken Parmesan sandwich was so thin and dry and the breading stuck to the bread and had no flavor. The best part of the meal was the fries and ranch. The bread before the meal was dry and cold. My co worker loved her pizza and the other one loved the spaghetti. I would come back and try the pizza.
I live in Salem. I have gone to Geppetto's literally since the first 3 days the restaurant opened. I have eaten pizza all over the US, in England, Brugge, Chicago, Canada, France , Spain, and Italy. I love pizza. GEPPETTOs makes wonderful pizza and really good Italian food. My son, who is now 30+, has eaten there since the first year he w as s born. All of the succeeding owners have continued to use "Momma's" recipes from the mother of the original owner's mother. I've eaten all over the American and European continents. Geppettos matches and exceeds the quality and flavors marvelously. If you don't like their food, don't go to Italy. It is true that all long lasting restaurants struggle as owners change. New staff comes on, available supplies change. . .but, anyone who regularly travels knows restaurants change. . .and VERY few last a long time without quality. Geppettos has proven itself. If you don't like it your favorite restaurant is probably some fast food hamburger joint.
We live about 1700 miles away but visit Geppetto's every time we visit Salem
We love the comfortable atmosphere and staff when we return to Salem and Geppeto's. We have been here for lunch and dinner and always are pleased with our food choices and the restaurants service. We will return.
Wonderful, kind, family-owned restaurant
WOW! We got here tonight at about 8:15pm, and they had closed the kitchen. However, the co-owner (Julie) felt bad, and they said the pizza oven was still warm. YAY US! There pizza is delicious, and isn't it amazing that any restaurant would go the extra mile and still serve us! We live in California, but come to Oregon and Washington about once every 2 months (sometimes more), and we ALWAYS stop here because of their excellent food and service. Thank you Roger and Julie (co-owners) and Nick, who is always great!
