The food was absolutely divine with big portions which are rare to find in most high-end restaurant. Great wine list. My personal choice on the menu: Pork belly, Norwegian salmon for mains and for dessert the nougat cheesecake!!... More

Main courses all varied from a steak, to Pasta Marinara, to one of the best risotto I have ever tasted (chorizo, prawns with a hint of chilies). Prices were very... More

We really like the menu and we enjoyed the food a lot. There is just one drawback : Sound! The acoustics in the restaurant is very bad. It is one big noise in your ears and you struggle to have a conversation. Some "softer" finishes would have made the sound situation better. It is like 60 people screaming all at... More

Great atmosphere and an excellent menu with a variety of choices. I had a glass of champagne for R60. Everyone else stuck with non-alcoholic beverages. Authentic Italian dishes.

The wife booked this Gemelli place .. thought whatever since I've not heard of it before ... Well now that I have been, I cant think of many better restaurants in JHB! - Excellent service with lots of personality/charisma! - Food exquisite - mussel pot for starters, pork belly for mains + wife had some unreal pasta (smokey chicken/seafood combination)...

Came here with some friends as a few people had wanted to try it. The food was amazing. We didn't have any starters but just got some bread, this was a bit of a disappointment as it was nothing more exciting than a baguette and everyone around the table only got 1 small slice each, I feel like there could...

We had to book well ahead to get into this restaurant but it was worth it. So cosmopolitan and really buzzy and noisy. The waiters are trendy and very helpful and they know their stuff - no running off to the kitchen to ask if a my soup had garlic in it, his laughing answer was " This is an... More
