We have recently moved from Dubai to JHB and are so happy to have found Gemelli’s.
Excellent service, lovely vibey atmosphere, the most delicious food, great wines...!
We can’t really say what’s the best. All elements make it the most welcoming and homey restaurant for us.

I cant fault the food but when you ask for still water and what gets poured (without checking) is imported water at R65 a bottle, as a local, I am very unimpressed. The manager was very quick to change the bill to local water at R40 but only after complaining. It certainly makes me wonder about "all the wines under R310 are sold out" as we were told by the same waiter.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant on previous occasions and was looking forward to bringing my colleagues, unfortunately this has left a very bitter taste in my mouth and will not be returning.

the restaurant is full so you have to book - they obvioulsy needed tables as they confirmed with us 3 times! we went at 6.30pm and it was busy already. The menu is extensive plus they have specials and our waiter JD made recommendations. The service is great as they watch each others tables so you do not have to look for your waiter. For starters we tried the chicken thighs - delicious and recommend to be eaten with the sauce for an ever better taste, grilled prawns; for main course the melanzane - not the traditional but with a modern twist and served with a side salad, the seafood pasta with a tomato sauce and Penne Alessandro a mix of smoked chicken, prawns,mushrooms, etc in a cream sauce with penne. Although it was busy and loud the service was excellent and we really enjoyed the food. They clearly mark vegetarian, vegan, etc foods on the menu so it is easy to know what you can order if you have preferences or allergies
