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

Okay so there has been a huge hype about Gemelli since it opened and I've been wanting to try them out for ages. My family and I were in the area the other day and thought we'd try our luck in getting a table (you usually have to book) and it was just our luck. Firstly the decor is absolutely... More

Hosted an evening business event at Gemelli. Team did an amazing job of serving four courses of stunning food. Pasta course was a particular success. Great service too.

Gemelli is situated in a small shopping centre in Bryanston. Easily accessible and since it opens onto the parking area it is easy to find. The service was fantastic, from the moment we walked in the door. A few minor issues (we received only the "special" wine list with high end wines, and not the standard one, and so on)... More

Wonderful stuff and great service too. Just one thing to be aware of - when ordering water, we were brought imported water and had to ask for local bottled... More

Nothing short of perfect! 10/10 for food, 9/10 for service, 8/10 for ambience. Fiance and I had an absolutely delicious lunch. For starters we had the tempura prawns with a refreshing aioli and the mussels with the most delicious buerre blanc which we mopped up with some fresh toasted ciabatta.
