The last three times I've been I've ordered the same simple pasta napolitana. Not because I'm boring but because it was that good. When a restaurant can get such a simple dish right, you know they're good. Simple ingredients- absolute perfection, stuff dreams are made...More

The atmosphere is welcoming and warm, the staff is friendly and well trained. With the hype of Gemelli, I would say I expected more, but the food was good and a lovely experience.

This is a buzzing restaurant. We visited on a Monday evening and the place was full. And vibey. But both the food and the service was average. The waiters even border on unfriendly. I am not blown away and don't think I will necessarily return.
