Geppetto is cooking some of the most interesting Italian food in the greater Boston area. We’re talking about things like fried mozzarella made by frying delicate strands of pasta with the cheese—picture dozens of tiny, crunchy strands of pasta loosely wrapped around a fairly large hunk of mozzarella, then deep fried, and topped with (yes) more cheese. You’ll also find a menu packed with housemade mafaldine with braised lamb and plates of cappelletti with pumpkin. It’s a solid date night or dinner with the parents move where you can snag a big comfy booth or a window seat that overlooks Cambridge Crossing.
