The food here is excellent,calamari starter was perfect.Very reasonably priced meals complimentary olives and warm bread,you don't see much complimentary these days when dining out.I also liked the fact that some of the mains could also be served as starters,a nice idea.Reasonably priced wine a winner all round.

Enjoyed our evening meal tonight at Gemelli. Friendly service. Good value. Tasty, homemade Italian cuisine. Calamari starter was beautifully cooked and so was my tagliatelle with Gorgonzola and nuts main course. Nice coffee too. Would return.

ate here as a couple 3rd May. Food amazing, complimentary bowl of olives & warm bread & butter whilst your meal is being cooked, nice touch! mussels & carbonara starters followed by seafood risotto's. Delicious & large portions. Unfortunately too full for pudds. Wine good & reasonable too. Will most definately return.

Five of us ate here last night (four adults, one child) and were very impressed. We were using a Groupon voucher but didn't feel we were treated any differently. We were served complementary olives and warm bread which were very nice. I had a tasty risotto for the main course and others in our party had pizzas which were huge... More

Visited here saturday 2/5/15 as a last minute thing, we went off TA reviews & Wow. Waitress was lovely & we certainly wasnt expecting the food to be as good as it was. Could have quite happily gone back the following night! Excellent value for money & i recommend having the carbonara or lasagne :) look forward to dining here... More
