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.
Service and the food was very good. The noise level was very loud due to a large party.
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
associates and family.
The staff are always friendly and professional.
Food was delicious and waiter was very funny we really enjoyed the evening was definitely worth the drive. This is a place we will be going back to.
Been going to Gemelli’s for many years and have never been disappointed..
Great food, Great service, Great ambiance....
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!!
Food was all excellent and the service was spot on.
Food was excellent. Nicely decorated for Christmas. Service was great
Great dinner & service. Would visit again & recommend to others.
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!
A favorite......food is always spot on and service is great. Highly recommended.
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.
Food is always top notch and the wait staff is always quick to serve. Can't go wrong here for dinner or any meal.
We had a lovely dinner. My wife and I both had seafood dishes that were superb. Wine bottles a bit to pricey. We’ll be coming back in the near future
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.
I have given Gemelli's three tries - each time I am less impressed. This is it.
Great food and service
We enjoyed our dinner experience. The food was delicious.
Not a big menu selection to choose from, but the food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
Everything was perfect. Food desert was amazing waiter Andrew was exceptional met friends and it was great night
Our waiter was amazing tonight (as always) and the entire staff were attentive and made our night very enjoyable!
Always a great dining experience. Great food, cocktails, wine & ambiance. Ernesto, the waiter is a real gem. We always ask to be seated in his section.
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.
I have eaten at Gemelli's in the past and each time the experience is outstanding. Food is always fresh and hot. The menu gives you a good variety of choices. The service is just right, not too slow, but they also will not rush you. I will definitely dine here again!
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!
Very good food. Friendly, personalized service. Will return.
Excellent food and service
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 have been there twice in one month and love it. Staff is very friendly and accomodating, food is amazing!
While the burrata was mediocre lacking flavor, the pasta special had a superb light cream sauce and was great! The service was excellent as always.
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.
All I can say is the service, the food, the wine selection.. everything was excellent.
The server needs a lot of work. The owners are amazing. You literally are made to feel like you are a guest in their home. The food and wine are always amazing.
My wife and I had an excellent experience at Gemelli's. We will definitely dine here again.
Excellent dining. The food is delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. Nice staff and ambiance.
A favorite! We have dinner often and have brought friends.
Very nice experience. Food fresh and delicious Our waiter was kind, funny and professional. The Bartender extremely friendly
