Lovely setting and amazing produce combine to give an authentic Neapolitan experience in the heart of melbournes little Italy

What a find! Great atmosphere, awe inspiring meals and a surprisingly nice wine list. Apart from a minor hiccup with one of our main meals being delivered to another table, we had the best night out. Definitely returning..... Ps. Definitely try the gnocchi - gob smackingly good

Restaurant was cosy but very loud due to confined space timber floors and brick walls , so it is a bit difficult to hear each other, but having said that the food and service compensate for that. Would definitely come back.

Just fair. We would rather pay more for slightly better quality . (Mainly the seafood in the pasta)

He’s actually a pizza expert by trade, having grown up making pizzas in Italy and travelled the world working in pizzerias. While Gemma does a good pizza, their delicious offerings are by no means limited to that classic. Their menu is chock-full of creamy pasta dishes including home-made gnocchi, fettuccine, spaghetti and risotto. And it doesn’t end there! You can have the whole Italian dining experience starting with antipasto and ending in traditional desserts such as tiramisu, panna cotta and even a sweet pizza. Bring your friends and take the night off – simply enjoy the goodness of home-cooked Italian at Gemma.
