To be honest I never write reviews on restaurants but I really felt like I needed to based on my experience. I went there with my family for dinner for my birthday we were a larger group of 11 and the restaurant was quite busy for a Tuesday night. However, there was heaps of staff on, we were asked twice the whole 2 hours we were there if we wanted more drinks (that's fine if they don't want our money for drinks). We couldn't order for half an hour after we arrived as no one came to see if we were OK. We then wait 35 MINUTES for our food, not even our entree's or garlic bread or food for the 2 kids came out. Then when we asked if we could have some of the entree's come out and told them we had been waiting so long to a waiter.
A manager looking male came over and said "I heard you have a complaint" and I said to be honest we were just asking not complaining and we have been waiting 35 minutes, no one has told us there would be this long a wait and his response was "We are busy and everyone else has waited 35 minutes" there was no apology at all and he was extremely rude. And did he really know every other table had been waiting 35 minutes because I had been watching other tables that had arrived after us that had already eaten.
Besides the point the way he responded was so unprofessional considering we are 11 customers just wanting to enjoy my birthday dinner. I have never felt like I had done something wrong for asking why my food had taken so long. I think waiting 40 minutes for any food is ridiculous and really the food was nice but I won't be going back.
I didn't find our waitress, the manager or any of the staff helpful or nice, they were all very stuck up, rude and unwilling to help.
delicious, impressive, inviting, authentic, outstanding. Buon Appetito!
Very experienced wait staff,fast friendly ,attentive service.risotto,pasta veal plates all were wonderful full flavoured dishes. Glassware fantastic and wine pouring generous and reasonable.Returned 3 times.
A delightful find! Comments such as `best pizza ever tasted out side of Roma' will tell you that Gemelli dishes up authentic pizza with fantastic thin crust and authentic toppings - no pineapple anywhere. We were in a group of hungry people and settled on six pizzas shared across the table and washed down with a lovely Italian Pinot Grigio - all reasonably priced too. Looking forward to coming back & trying the rest of the menu!
Wonderful restaurant. This is definitely my first choice when it comes to quality meals and a nice evening. The prices are definitely worth it. The place is classy and the food is truly amazing. I highly recommend the restaurant to everyone who wants to have a great time and have a classic Italian dinner.
unbelievable food, wine and experience! Will go every week (multiple times). Staff were fantastic. Could not fault this soon to be award winning restaurant! Bravo!!!
