Patrons at Gepetto's share specialty pizzas and sumptuous brunch fare between wood-paneled walls plastered with 70s-style bric-a-brac dating from the eatery's inception. Appetizers such as the traditional garlic bread with cheese and mushrooms challenge the culinary cosmopolitanism of the sampler platter. Fountain drinks wash down specialty pies such as the California Garden, featuring artichoke hearts, spinach, and diced tomatoes on a bed of white garlic sauce. In the Not-So-Navajo taco pizza, a shadow government of ground beef, black beans, and jalapeños lurks under a layer of corn chips and media cover-ups.
For brunch, a cup of Jiminy's Java—Gepetto's locally roasted coffee blend—complements a shared order of sopa-beignets, a breed of fried dough dumplings dusted with cinnamon and sealed with real maple syrup. Weekend brunch's breakfast pies come in three styles—the Walking on Sunshine, with alfredo sauce and a sunny-side-up egg; the Hangover Remedy, coated in rich sausage gravy and home fries; and the Pineapple Express, a pesto foundation with ripe pineapple, smoked bacon, and hemp seeds saved from a life of twine.
Menus linked above reflect current pricing and selection.
Gepetto's chef tosses a doughy mass high in to the air. With each flight, its circumference expands until it's ready to hold any of the pizzeria's 40 unique toppings. A brick oven bakes the specialty pies, which flaunt music-themed names such as Highway to Hell—an original or honey wheat crust covered in hot creamy sauce, fire-roasted peppers, chicken, cream cheese, fresh Serrano peppers, fiery hot Fritos, and a house-made jalapeno spice blend. Various salads and pasta entrees round out the menu of distinctive comfort foods.
Out in the dining room, groovy peace signs, old black-and-white photographs, and whimsical tchotchkes plaster the brick walls. Stringed lights twinkle above plates loaded with slices of the Buffalo Soldier pizza, baked orecchiette mac and cheese, and Mama Cass strombolis stuffed with Swiss cheese and black forest ham. Every day after the sun and moon switch out for the night shift, local musicians bust out their guitars and vocals for some rousing entertainment.
Service is always friendly. The decor is great, hasn't updated since the 70's...don't ever remodel!Susan A., Yelp, 6/30/2011
