One of the better restaurants in Babylon. The food is always well prepared and the service can't be beat. The wait staff has been with the restaurant for many years and gets to know the customers and always greats the patrons warmly. Whenever we bring guests, the waiters are very attentive to them as well.
The decor is like an Italian villa, cozy and warm with a working fireplace. They always decorate for the season, too. It's fun to go at Christmas time when they have a village set up along the wall.
As for the food, it is never disappointing. They feature a veal chop nightly, a signature dish, and they have great chicken entrees and their fish dishes are excellent.

We made reservations for a special get together with friends--3 couples, last Saturday night. The reputation of Gemelli's had us convinced we were going to have a wonderful night. Not so--the service was awful. We had 7:30 reservations, arrived at 7:15 and were not seated until 8:10, with not more than a fleeting apology. Service was poor and the dinners were average. The lighting was very dark and we had to hold the candle over the menus to read them. It was a disappointing evening and we will not return.

The best restaurant in Babylon, NY. The location is great (right in the village), the decor and general atmosphere are cozy and clean. The food is excellent, always fresh and very tasty and the service is professional. The lights are too dim for dinner, but overall, each dinner out was very pleasant and we always return with great pleasure. The prices are slightly above average.

Met a friend for lunch. The first choice wasn't open so we went to Gemelli's instead. Waitstaff was wonderful. Food on the other hand wasn't. We shared an antipasto which consisted of calamari, shrimp, baked clams and artichoke hearts. The calamari was soggy the shrimp extremely overcooked and the baked clams tasted like baked bread crumbs. The artichoke was the best thing on the plate and it was ok at best. We both ordered individual margarita pies. To me they tasted like a thin crust pizza with some basil leaves on top. We both agreed that the mint they served with the pricy check and the water we drank was the best part of the meal. We got a chuckle out of that because those things were complimentary along with the bread. So if you go, get the bread, water and a check and you will have had the best of Gemellis fine food.
