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.

Food was excellent, ambience was nice (less the Christmas decor since it’s mid-January), waiter and staff were all very nice. Definitely pricey and we didn’t have any leftovers but the food was outstanding.

It had been some time since dining last at Gemelli's. The overall experience was very good. The food tasted as good as it's presentation. Our server provided excellent service. We enjoyed our meal and will be back.

Gemelli's is our go to place in Babylon Village for both business and pleasure.
The chef never disappoints and that is why we choose to entertain our business

The staff are always friendly and professional.

Great time, great place to have dinner with close friends. Quiet so that you can have a conversation, but not too quiet so that other people can hear what your saying.. I enjoyed it, and our waiter was excellent!!

This was my first time to Gemellis. The menu had many choices with generous portions. We tried to order like they do in Italy where you have a small pasta course before the main course. Thankfully the waiter told us the pasta course was a main entree or we would have had way too much food and an extra large bill. Lol. Food was delicious and service was great!

Enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. But we found the portions to be on the small side and quite expensive for what you got. Veal Milanese was $48.00! A sauted veal chop with a small amount of arugula salad on top. Realize veal is expensive but while it was good, it was Not worth $48.00! Salmon was also tasty but was quite small. Ambience was nice and very welcoming. Two Dinners, with two appetizers, two glasses of wine and one dessert that we shared was $200.00. Expensive!

Food is fabulous. Our waiter, Ernesto, is the best. He made for a fun evening. Not just delicious, but entertaining. We’ve been eating there since we had our son’s bar mitzvah luncheon there. That was 20 years ago. Still the best.

The warm fireplace was so inviting as we entered the dining room. The service was excellent, not rushed at all. Our server made suggestions that were taken and we appreciated his input. I will definitely go back for a special occasion meal and recommend it to friends and family.

Enjoyable dinner with a super server who recommended the stuffed veal chop. The veal chop tasted great however the veal was unfortunately tough and chewy. Despite that I will be back.

The waiter was very attentive I felt. The support staff Busboys excetera clear the table off instantaneously. That impressed me very much so I hate looking at an empty plate. Other than the appetizer we had which was kind of skimpy everything else was very good.

Everything was superb except the lobster chunks in the risotto. The flavor of the risotto was fantastic but the lobster pieces were so tough! That's my pet peeve so that's why I'm saying something. Otherwise, everything passed our expectations!

It was my boyfriends birthday so I wanted to bring him here since I enjoyed it last time I went. The food was good. Only thing I was disappointed with was the fact that they didn’t refill our wine glasses for us. If I’m paying that much money for a bottle of wine the least you could do is pour it in our glass for us, they were not by any means busy. Overall I would still go back.

We showed up promptly for our dinner reservation and left about 15 minutes after we were seated. No one bothered to serve water or drop off a menu or even acknowledge our presence. Some big groups there, very disorganized and not worth the effort to complain. With so many other choices, we will not return. Terrible way to treat customers.
