We went in this restaurant because is famous in Lampedusa. The atmosphere is fantastic, the waiters and the staff were perfect, the bill was quite expensive but is normal in this kind of restaurants. Unfortunatly, we went there to eat something of exceptional but the food didn't meet our expectations. So, for us, this restaurant, for the food, is overrated

Not everything is really hight quality. Many dishes are refined and uncommon. The dessert menù is interesting. I didn't live tre location, a small courtyard with oriental mismatched ornaments and the service familiar and pretentious at tre same time

Thank freev0yager

Open for more than thirty years the restaurant Gemelli is considered one of the "historical" of Lampedusa. The kitchen, from the more traditional Sicilian (spaghetti with sardines, swordfish rolls stuffed with grilled shellfish) to the most creative and sophisticated (crepes stuffed grouper creamy pasta with shrimp, grouper roulade stuffed with shellfish and vegetables), enhances the freshness of the raw material: the fish, the undisputed king of this wonderful island. The main dish is couscous, served with semolina cooked according to ancient recipe, vegetables and fish slice.
