Food

Proving that one should never equate glamour with flavour, this unassuming establishment will not leave you disappointed. A simple list of starter options includes a salad with just tuna, lettuce and olives, as well as soups and a selection of cheese and cold meat platters.

The rest of the menu is just as simple – Napoletana, Bolognese, carbonara, arrabiatta, and seafood pasta dishes are on offer, with portions as generous as the fresh, natural flavours that come through in every home-style dish. The thin-base pizza likewise relies on the natural flavours of the toppings. Regulars are also partial to the lamb shank.

Those with a sweet tooth can choose from a variety of sorbets, with flavours including orange, lemon, pineapple and coconut, as well as tiramisu and home-made ice cream.

Drinks

Full-service bar with a limited selection of local wines.

Ambience

No frills, no fuss. It’s comfortable, unpretentious and very welcoming.

Service

Friendly staff are familiar with the menu.

    The restaurant is managed by a grumpy old man who is rude and disrespectful to the customers. We definitely won't be going back to Gema that is for sure!!
    Ordered Beef lasagne Take away, was given something that resembled some kind of mince and soggy soft pasta. NO CHEESE, NO WHITE SAUCE. Upon phoning to complain my call was answered by an Italian Woman who spoke very little english. When asked if I accidentally given the wrong meal I was asked what I meant,I replied 'it doesnt look or taste like lasagne it tastes terrible' I was told to bring it back. When I arrived to bring it I was 1st told they there was cheese but you cant see it, then told its parmisan cheese then told that I'm supposed to add my own cheese then bake it! after replying who would order take aways to add my own cheese and "bake it" I was intimidated by two VERY STROPPY AND AGGRESSIVE Italian men and one woman who had dragged my into the kitchen(dirty) and invaded my personal space and screamed at and insulted me I was given my money back and pushed out the front door.  Future customers, please rather save yourself the effort and tummy ache and drive to the closest woolworths food, get an average lasagne, but a lasagne nonetheless. "The customer is always right" NOT AT GEMMA

    Real Italian Food prepared by a real Italian family in a real Italian atmosphere. What more could you ask for? Well, the clincher is really really good value. They are exceptionally well priced. And apart from their wood fired pizza, to top it off, they also make their own Italian "gelato" ice-cream. I had an awesome meal experience, and am sure you will too.
