Gepettos, Italian Restaurant, Helmsley
We have recently bought and taken over Gepettos, Helmsley's favourite Italian restaurant.
"Sue, Nigel, Sam and Mollie Chapman acquired Gepetto's from previous owner Dino on August 7th 2018. Previously they have owned sandwich shops, cafes and a large mobile speciality coffee business in York.
In 2015 they took over The Vinehouse Cafe at Helmsley Walled Garden and have since fallen in love with Helmsley and the Ryedale area. So much so that in December last year they sold their house in York, moved to Appleton-le-Moors and bought Gepetto’s, including the building as well as the business.
In doing so they have made a long term commitment to continue Dinos legacy of a friendly, affordable, family Italian eatery in the heart of Helmsley. They have exciting plans to modernise the building and to re furbish the tired kitchen, dining room, toilets etc. This will ensure that Gepetto’s can continue to prosper and serve Helmsley residents and tourists for another 20 years.
Certificate of Excellence
Over the next few months we will be adapting the menu and hope regulars will bear with us and try some of our new dishes. (feedback always welcome). We are not about fancy food or fine dining. We are passionate about fresh simple food that tastes great."
Seasonal. Local. Fresh.
Food is at the heart of our cafe. We have a genuine passion for fresh, local produce and use as many fruit and veg from the Walled Garden as we can. Our menus change according to whats in season at the time. Ensuring our customers get the freshest, tastiest eating experience.
