I am allergic to the restaurants in Montecasino so it is always great to find somewhere accessible for a good meal before a show. Last week we chose Gemellis and it was excellent. The décor is disappointing - it just looks like a big, uninteresting restaurant. Service however was excellent and accommodating, the menu is not too big but has... More

I ordered the salmon, really delicious you need to book 2-3 weeks ahead if you would like a table inside, but well worth it.

Johannesburg favorite in the heart of Bryanston. Italian style restaurant with a great vibe, very busy and cheerful. Food has some classic choices with interesting choices. This place crosses causal with fine dining. Food is really good but service is lacking somewhat. What was very interesting was the Italian craft beer. I must try!

Had an awesome Mothers' Day Lunch. From the complimentary glass of wine for all moms / ladies, to the excellent, professional, fun, well trained and friendliest waiters to the awesome food, it is an amazing experience. We have just come back from a holiday in Rome, and Alessandro's restaurant compares with the best we had when dining out in Rome.... More

My friends and I met at Gemelli to celebrate my belated 40th birthday. It was cost and warm! The food was delish and the service was great! I would definitely go back! There were two glitches: firstly our mains came as we were still busy with our starters!😳After we told our waiter that we would let him know when we... More

Delicious food, really excellent service. Very very noisy on a Saturday night and Sunday lunch. The Gnocchi in a gorgonzola sauce with walnuts, seafood linguine, ragu with Taliatelle was all perfectly prepared, presented and perfectly served. Waiters are friendly and so efficient! I will return perhaps on a rather more quiet weekday lunch and or dinner. Alexanda the owner STILL... More

It was good to have a reservation even for 3 people. We had great little tasty appetizers and a lovely steak. Food was outstanding. Staff was super friendly and helpful. The place is loud and full with all nations and it mixes really well. Good job!

I went to Gemelli for date night a while ago and it lived up to all the hype! The restaurant is situated in an awkward location but with the address and your GPS you will be fine. The Decor is modern and the restaurant has a really great vibe. The day we went it was really busy (and I hear... More
