Geppetto is located within The Lexington, at Cambridge Crossing.

Drawing from his love of Northern Italian food, Chef Gilson will bring the flavors and feasts from Italy to our modern, dinner only restaurant. Ingredients of the dishes will highlight the farms, fishers, and foragers of New England. Guests can dine on composed platters of cheese, cured meats, and small bites to start their meal. Housemade pastas, local seafood, and fresh butchered meats will be the highlight of an evening at Geppetto - all concluded by desserts from one of the city’s leading pastry chefs, Brian Mercury.

One of the hottest restaurant openings of 2021 from Eater.

    My first time at this restaurant and my last for sure. The food was good, not great however the service was less than desirable. We were asked to leave the restaurant by a waiter that wasn’t even our waiter. According to him we had pretty much overextended our time at the restaurant. Mind you after spending over $300 for our meal and drinks. And to top it all he was super disrespectful to one of my friends for no reason at all. He knew nothing about my friend and called him names. My friends and I have never been treated like this at any restaurant in our lives. And we love to explore fine dining in the city. This place… never again.

    We dined an early dinner @5:30 and the place was practically emplty. The hostess sat us right next to a couple facing directly at us which made me feel so uncomfortable. I did’nt say anything because I assumed they had plenty of reservations which was not true as the restaurant was almost empty by the time we left. Why shove us at that table when there were so much more available tables?? We just moved in the neighborhood hoping this would be a go to restaurant. Annoyed beyond words!! Absolutely never returning here!!

    Hello -- welcome to the neighborhood and thank you for your feedback. Gosh, I wish you had said something in the moment to our host team or service staff! We do arrange reservations in our dining room in particular ways to ensure a smooth and enjoyable service for all, that particular night you dined with us we did see several last-minute cancellations that opened up quite a bit of space in our dining room and more flexibility for us to seat guests in different parts of the restaurant. We would have been happy to shift your table assignment to another location in the restaurant! Best wishes, -Jared Sadoian Director of Operations

    Geppetto had been on our bucket list for a while, and we finally went there last night for my wife's birthday. Unfortunately, the food was awful and overpriced. Atmosphere was great, service was great but the food was nothing.

    Pasta was excellent and so was our waitress! We also LOVED the garlic bread and the fried mozzarella. Incredible!

    Excellent food all around. Probably one of the best fra diavolos I've had. Drinks were nice and the fried mozzarella was exceptional. I will be back again.
