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 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.

The food was a little bit on the expensive side but well worth it. One of the best meals I have every had. The service was friendly and prompt but I found the waiter a little bit too familiar for a high end restaurant. I found it a little bit disrespectful. A couple of jokes can be entertaining but I came for a fine dining experience, not for stand up! The decor is a little old fashioned and could use a little bit of refreshing.
Anyway, I thought my food was wonderful.

Food was good. Person at the front desk was nice. Our server was very nice but very ,very slow. I'm not sure she is a regular server. We waited a really long time for our meals and an even longer time for our check. Our server NEVER asked if our food was ok, if we needed another beverage, if we wanted to see a dessert menu or anything else; we barely saw her after the food order was placed. Very disappointing.
AND on top of that I got an email saying I wasn't getting my 100 points for my visit! HUH? Why not?

A consistent winner! There is great food here, both from the comfort food aspect and as to some daring new twists. The wait staff is great- pleasant and knowledgeable. Only negative is that the place is loud and sometimes you get placed in a tight dark corner depending on your table.

Food was delicious and service was excellent. Décor was a bit tired looking and can definitely benefit from some freshening up to enhance the ambiance, but overall was not a problem.

Very good Appetizer and pasta selection.
For the dessert my husband found egg shells in his Zabaione and showed them to the waiter. No measures or apologies were taken. That was not customer friendly.
A part from this, it was overall a nice evening.

Sitting outside was a bad decision as the noise level from traffic was at times unbearable. A beautiful day and great food but our choice to dine outside wasn’t stellar.

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.
