A word from Gemelli's Restaurant
Ristorante Gemelli is a unique dining experience in Italian dining, bringing the best of North and South Italian cuisine in a comfortable, delightful atmosphere.

Ristorante Gemelli is the natural progression from the family's gourmet food market down the street which has been a staple in Babylon since 1988 and has been a Mecca for fine Italian food on the South Shore. Gemelli Fine Foods and Ristorante Gemelli is family owned and operated.

Ristorante Gemelli opened its door in 1997. It is tastefully decorated in the Mediterranean style with subdued lighting, cream colored walls with sea foam green and brick accents, and atrium with high ceilings and gracefully draped curtains. Candle lit tables and Italian music softly playing in the background add a romantic touch to this comfortable, airy dining room, one of the prettiest on Long Island. Both the quality of the food and the restaurant's atmosphere combine to ensure that guests have a positive experience.

Diner Reviews
  • "A great dining experience begins and ends with great service. We very lucky to have had Ernesto as our waiter. Along with the service the food was great also. From the appetizer through dessert."

  • "Gemelli's was bustling this Friday night. They had a private party in 1/2 of the restaurant but the service and food was great and usual. The seasonal stuffed zucchini flowers are always a special treat. The branzino with risotto was delicious!"

  • "I went to this restaurant on a thursday evening expecting a romantic night. there was only on other table occupied. The lights were extremely bright and I had heard the food was very good but I ordered Gnocchi and it was green and tasted like grass. My overall experience was not good at this restaurant. I had hoped for something better :("

  • "This was our first visit to Gemelli's. In addition to providing excellent service, our server was a stand-up comic. The restaurant was lovely, the food very good, and the server made dinner a surprising and enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, we do not recall his name, or we would highly recommend him. We would definitely go back to Gemelli's."

  • "Restaurant was ok. Wrong main course arrived. Had to wait 15 minutes for the correct order while my wife ate. No apologies. The gluten free "linguine" were noodles. Food and service were otherwise satisfactory."

  • "Food was excellent, service impeccable. Only problem was table size - there were 4 of us and the table (not just ours) for 4 would be better suited for 2 only - very cramped."

  • "I have been a frequent diner at this wonderful restaurant from the day it opened. The food is consistently excellent. There has never been a single dish that I have not enjoyed. Everything is always cooked and seasoned to absolute perfection. The staff are super attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is wonderful. I never hesitate to recommend this gem to family and friends."

  • "When seated you are given bread and and olive/garlic dish. The bread was very crusty and difficult to eat. The olives were delicious. My caesar salad ($8) was very fresh and definitely did not have store bought dressing. The chicken marsala ($22) was very tasty, but felt that there should have been a bit more chicken for the price. I had the apple sfoliata dessert ($8.50) which was delicious. The service was a bit slow and we noticed one table that was there about the same time as we were and did not get their main course until we were having dessert. Overall the food was delicious but we didn't feel the price matched the experience. We felt we could have had just as delicious Italian food elsewhere for less than half the price. "

  • "Excellent food, Excellent service. What more could I ask for? Oh, yeah. Excellent wine selection too. It was a bit noisier than I expected but there were large groups and it turned out to be just people talking, laughing and having fun. I had a great time. I couldn't ask for anything more. "

  • "This was our second time here and there is nothing bad to say about this restaurant from the delicious food to the wonderful service everything was just perfect!! I had the penne bozanzio which was absolutely delicious with the fresh mozzarella on top and the plum tomatoes. It was mouth watering to the very last bite. My boyfriend had the cavatelli which I had last time which is also delicious. We has the stuffed artichokes as an app, by far the best!!! Definitely would recommend and brag about this place because it's beyond amazing!!"

  • "My dinner was delicious, but my husband did not like the veal. He did not like the taste as well as the spinach. Also, we had a waiter that was catering to various tables but not to ours! The service was not as good as usual."

  • "Classic Italian with many wonderful choices. Waiter was an older well seasoned gentlemen that was very efficient and helpful. You can easily order too much, but take it home and enjoy it the next day. Food was well prepared and presented nicely. Seating by the fireplace in the winter was charming."

  • "The food was good, service was very good. But they pack to many tables and you're so close to people you have no space even the waiter couldn't get get though between the tables. The place has a nice look very cozy."

  • "The attention and constant awareness of the waiters was exceptional, very professional. The food from the appetizers to the desserts chosen for the table were very tasty. Notably, the owners are very proactive in their concerns and comfort of their patrons."

  • "We checked in for our reservation at 8pm at 7:50pm and were left standing at the front door for 5-7 minutes with no one at the front bar or door. We ventured out to the main dining room where a waitress gave us a strange look and told us she thought the kitchen was closed. Again we were left standing there waiting for an answer. After 5 additional minutes (which seemed like a half hour) we left...without anyone telling us whether the restaurant was indeed closed. If the restaurant was closed then why did it allow up to make a reservation...very disappointing."

  • "Loved the food and our server was excellent. Being we had two in our party with hearing issues our server was a bit difficult to understand and everything that was said had to be repeated. However, he was an exceptional server. One person in the party dropped a utensil a split second later it was replaced."

  • "My husband and I recently had our very first Gemellis experience. We read the reviews and heard the great things but wanted to see for ourselves. We picked an earlier timeslot on a Saturday night. The restaurant was relatively quiet and the ambiance was beautiful. We shared a tomato/mozz salad, a chirzo ravoli and had two entrees (Salmon and Filet). Top that off with a good merlot, NY cheesecake and some coffess. Overall, the meal was delightful. Not sure we'd have any suggestions to change. This is definately a must on our list for the future. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we did."
