    Started with La Guacamaya cocktails (fantastic) and shared the beet salad & Monaco pizza (outstanding). The caccio e pepe was convincing and remindful of Rome

    The Bowery Burger medium with swiss and a salad is almost perfect. Medium rare would've been a better choice.

    Gemma continues to be a gem in the Bowery crown of restaurants. We were celebrating a small family reunion and were treated like royalty. Starting off with a Prosecco toast which lead to Antipasto Misto and Focaccia Robiola. Moving into our paste and secondi courses, we had Chitarra Cacio e Pepe, Salmone, Wood Oven Roasted Eggplant and an Apulia pizze (cherry tomato sauce, oregano and burrata). Beautiful. Rounding out the meal, we had the plum torte special with vanilla gelato, tiramisu and Nutella calzone. Grazie mille Gemma! We will be back.

    Service was OK, as was the food. Nothing spectacular. The general decor of the restaurant is awesome - kind of a steam punk design. However the noise level was incredibly loud - even for only being at maybe 50% occupancy.

    One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. Filled with rustic charm, and the food is delicious. Drinks are a little pricey and as of 7/24/22 they need to fix their women's restroom, but overall a great spot with amazing ambience.

    It's a pretty standard early 2000s rustic Italian spot. Not bad, not great. Our beet salad came with under ripe avocado that was inedible. The rest of the salad was good. The mains were fine, bronzino and a pasta. Nothing to go out of your way for. Crowd seemed to be guests of the hotel, had a pretty out of towner vibe. I'd skip it there are better places in the same neighborhood.

    Gemma was very good! I had the Cacio e Pepe and the Italian Garden drink. Both were very tasty. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals and appetizers. The service was great and drinks were refilled quickly. I would recommend, especially if your group has a variety of pallets. They offer pasta, pizza, and a burger so there is something for everyone.

    We arrived and the waitress was rude from the start, she was not helpful at all with options that could be dairy free, made faces and scoffed at my friend who was trying to ask about her order. She then dissapeared and we had to flag her down to get more water and a menu for another friend that arrived later. The food arrived and was absolutely inedible, we sent it back and only stayed because we had a bottle of wine to finish, the second pasta dish that we ordered to replace the first one was honestly mediocre at best. NEVER to return.

    Gemma is one of my favorite restaurants and I was excited to bring my out of town friend. We sat outside but had really bad service. No one came up to us for at least 20 minutes and we had to keep flagging down anyone we could to get waters. Took us 40 mins to get our drinks

    Quaint Italian restaurant with a nice outdoor patio area in a vintage hotel. Bread was off the chart good and you can easily fill up on it if you aren’t careful. Great pizzas. Staff was helpful and attentive but not intrusive.

    The ambiance of the restaurant is lovely, both new industrial and old world. The staff was very attentive without being intrusive. We were there on a Tuesday afternoon so not many people at the restaurant, however, I have been there at busier times and it is a bit loud, but never out of hand. The food was very good, but I was disappointed with the tiramisu that did not have enough coffee and chocolate for my taste. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

    Food was good but not outstanding. I would go back for quick bite in the neighborhood. Antipasti plate had too much oil for my taste and pizza covered with too much arugula and crust not crisp. Ambience was very nice - we had a quiet corner table. Service was a bit slow and could have been more attentive, but it was a very busy Friday night.

    Service was inconsistent. Dishes served while we had no silverware however the waiters were quick to get that for us once we asked. The food was very oily, it seemed like they added oil to everything when it was not necessary. The Branzino was tasty, the pizza was undercooked. It was not a great dining experience but the location and the atmosphere is great.

    Easter Sunday. Nice atmosphere and everyone was friendly. Good wine list, cocktails and spirits. It may have been the off-night chef, but the food took forever and was OK, but not spectacular. Seafood risotto, papardelle with short rib ragout, oriciette with broccoli rabe and sausage (this dish seemed the best of the lot). Antipasti salad was tasty, with a somewhat out of the ordinary selection of ingredients.
