For starters your taste buds will excited by the Gamberetti – prawn tails prepared in a smoked tomato-and-basil salsa and accompanied by an avocado mousse and lemon aïoli – and the beetroot, pear and fig tartlet made up of a buttery pastry case topped with roasted seasonal beets, preserved pear, Weltevrede fig jam, gorgonzola crema and salty candied walnuts. Another hit is the spicy half chicken, which is sous vide and prepared in a garlic-and-chilli marinade. It’s served with duck fat potatoes and a rustic salad.
The warm chocolate brownie – made with 70% dark chocolate, almonds, dates, praline and Amaretto custard – is served with a vanilla gelato and is dessert heaven at its best.
There’s a great selection of cocktails. Local and international wines are also on offer, as well as craft beers and Stella Artois on tap. There’s also a fairly good selection of champagnes. Those who order by the glass, take note: it’s measured at 185ml.
Extremely friendly and well-trained staff.
Warm and welcoming with Italian type murals and soft finishing.
Booking is a must for dinner, but Gemelli probably isn’t the best option for a quiet romantic date night.
