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.

We always love Gemelli's, especially during restaurant week! It did not disappoint. This was a birthday dinner and all was good. The only criticism is that the food seemed a little too salty this time around. The Calamari appetizer was perfect and never chewy. The main dish was the grouper with the shrimp risotto and string beans. The seasonings were a little too salty for both me and my guest. The Chocolate lava cake did not disappoint.

Forgot to bring my husband’s dinner. Brought it when everyone else had finished and then the prawns were burnt to a crisp. I ordered a second glass of Rose, They charged me for it and only brought it after I called them out on it ... which was after the meal. But they could not take it off the bill. Had to guzzle it upon delivery so we could leave!!! Left frustrated

Been to Gemelli's several times, but this one didn't live up to the others at all. Services was slow and hard to get their attention for anything. The octopus appetizer was so rubbery that I literally could have been chewing on rubber bands. The Chicken Marsala our friend had was a bit tough and a bit dry. A large table came in just after we arrived and was Sooooooooooo loud that all the other tables had to yell to hear each other.

First, coat check was not attended. Second, MaitreD was dressed to sweep the cellar. Room was lovely, nicely decorated for Christmas. Caesar Salad was great. Oysters were old and dreadful. Ordered six, ate one. Paid for six. Bronzino good. Fillet Mignon ordered medium rare, served RAW. Steak was poor quality. Did not eat. Asparagus were good. Mashed potatoes were awful. Did not eat. Pasta special was a bowl of inedible mush. Did not eat. Decent Tuscan red at a fair price. Great waiter, Giuseppe. But, he failed to notice that we did NOT eat the food except the Caesar and the Bronzino. We paid for a lot of poor quality, inedible food. Will NEVER return.

We went for our 20th Anniversary. Restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Gave us the table by the fire place we requested. Everyone took great care of us! Love their food! My favorite is the grilled artichokes with the hot antipasto. Perfect place for a special occasion.

We have been customers for years, but Saturday night we sat at the bar for 15 minutes and the bartender ignored us. Other patrons were complaining that they were also being ignored. We went to our table , out of the four dinners ordered two of them were wrong. My husband and his friend ordered fish and they brought out the wrong fish. So we all had to wait a half hour for them to make new meals. We won't be coming back..

My server was outstanding. The rest of the staff however when thy walked by the table never stepped in to help out. The cuisine is phenomenal here. You will never have a bad meal. The fireplace is great when its on, it wasn't that night that's why the 4 stars.

We ordered Grouper for the restaurant week special, very surprised how "small" the dinner plate was, even another dinner guest at the next table made a remark (thought is was the size of an appetizer). Salad was good, nothing special, dessert was very good. Disappointed with our choice of grouper, it was tasty but would not order that again. Not a good value... Service and setting is always great!!!

We went here during Restaurant Week. The meal, the ambiance, everything was first rate. The discounted dinner came to $162 for 2 with cocktails, a modest bottle of wine, tax and tip. It was worth it.
Looking at the regular menu, though, I estimated that a similar meal would cost around $250. It's not that good.
