This restaurant was excellent ! We had wonderful salads, sampler plates, and soup . The ambiance was great, wine and beer selection was great. No big screen TVs to distract us, just hanging with the family enjoying a wonderful meal .

Had a very tasty dinner plate of half and half pasta that was very good. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The new remodel is really what the place needed for a open atmosphere.

This being our first visit to Hancock,mi, we didn't know what to expect. Wow were we pleasantly surprised. Gemignani's is a charming small Italian restaurant with great food. We both ordered pasta dishes and they were fantastic.

Stopped for early dinner. Well prepared. Bread offered with meal could have been more original. Dinning early service could not have been better.

The Spaghetti w/meatballs was good as well as the Lasagna. My wife loved the Tiramisu which is her favorite dessert. This is a nice family type restaurant, and at a descent price.
