Found this lovely little place having done some research on trip advisor and did not dissappoint. Tasty authentic Italian food and very friendly service. Would revisit when next in area and happy to recommend.

Booked this restaurant in advance of a short weekend away based on previous reviews. All four of us really enjoyed the whole experience. Such a pleasant and compact venue with enough elbow room to be independent of other diners. Seats around 20 and the place has a homely feel.

We had an evening meal here last week. There were 8 of us, and we are discerning diners. Not one of us had any complaints. It is a small, family run restaurant, and the care and love that had gone into every dish did not go amiss. The decor and ambiance, is delightful, the service excellent. Highly recommended!

Possibly the best Italian food I've ever had! Gemelli is a bit off the beaten track - some way up Union Street, beyond the main shopping area and opposite a large granite church - and the area is not very appealing. When you go inside, it seems a bit dark and gloomy (it would help if they put the light... More

We were recommended this Restaurant. This is a family run Restaurant. Service could be a little faster but we had a very enjoyable meal.

Not easy to find, but worth it. Very reasonably priced Italian restaurant, privately owned and run by the owner, good menu selection, and good service. Small, so make sure you reserve a table. We went twice , a recommendation in itself.

Best Italian in the bay by far food is out of this world so make sure you book in advance as only a small place and fills up very quick
