Gemma Ristorante reviews from OpenTable diners
  • The filet with wine sauce
    DeeJay
    Dined on 7/28/2012
    The filet with wine sauce was better than the fancy steakhouses. Service was very attentive. Background music added to the romantic atmosphere without being intrusive. Everything we ordered was prepared properly. Highly recommend Gemma Ristorante.

    Excellent!! It was our first time here and we loved it! We were surprised it wasn't busy on a Sat night. I guess there are too many choices in ARL to go to. But we will definitely return. The service was excellent too! Keep up the good work and hope word of mouth will bring in more business. Did I mention excellent?!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/23/2012
    Staff was friendly and courteous. As this was my first time using the Open Table Site, I had questions regarding such. They didn't seem to know anything about Open Table, and the staff didn't offer me a manager to talk to about my questions regarding Open Table. I did get my 100 points so I guess it's all good. The menu offered some interesting selections and I thought the food was great! I would recommend it, and I would definitely go again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/13/2012
    really nice looking restaurant, the website said dress code was smart casual, but right after we were seated 2 guys came in wearing homemade T-shirts and were seated right beside us , but after seeing the prices they got up and left. We had a reservation for 7:45 but they were almost empty. So we didn't even mention the reservation. Since it was not busy we were able to spend some time talking after dinner was over and paid the check.

    Not bad, but nothing special about the food. The service was good, everyone there is very nice. I hope they're just working out the kinks.

    Dined on 10/8/2011
    To be fair to them, there was a party for a wedding rehearsal so it was not a good night for a trial run. First we asked for a booth, then mgr. said no, we had to move, then when we started to leave they said no they gave us the booth so we should stay. Very noisy due to party. Food good.

    Would not recommend this restaurant. The food was terrible, each one of us (there were 4) ordered something different and we all agreed that the meals were less than desirable.

    Very helpful waitstaff, and the food was good for a small, neighborhood location; prices were very fair and portions were generous. More of a homestyle Italian menu than a gourmet interpretation.
