At the risk of sounding like all other reviews, this is the best italian food in Joburg! The restaurant looks fairly basic but was packed when I got there at 9 pm, always a good sign. Lamb meatballs started was sublime and the seafood linguini...More

We booked for dinner at Gemelli's after months of hearing about it. It lived up to the hype. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food superb. We skipped starters and went straight for mains. We then shared desserts. Every dish was a journey....More
