I've been there three times and the reflection is always the same. We love the food, and the ambience and the initial service as people are very courteous and friendly. But there is an inherent chaos in the way service is organized. This last time,...More

Gemelli is a wonderful restaurant. While it is very busy (ensure you make a booking) my table was in a spacious location and we could still hear all the conversations around the table. The food is delicious! With a broad menu there is lots to...More

We wanted to spoil the family (8 of us), and Gemelli achieved that for us. A great restaurant. Only two downsides - quite expensive and quite noisy.

Not your REAL Italian food restaurant. The menu is very Italian in name but not in siubstance - far too many confusing flavours and ingerdients. And .... very, very expensive - greta location and setting and service.

The menu although vast I battled to find plain food . The service was great. We had a few wrong orders that were sorted out quickly. The manager on hand all the time . A good choice for people who like different type foods .

Gemelli still has I think the best food in Johannesburg but when we went on a Saturday night we had to wait over an hour for our first courses - if the kitchen cant cope then cut down the amount of bookings

Once again I note a previous respondents comment that - it seems that only replies are received to positive questions - and that the negative ones are ignored! Sad!
