    Pizza and gnocchi were delicious! Very friendly staff, and not too loud. Definitely a new place to add to my recommendations list. Will be coming back for sure!

    Their food was delicious good job there, although we felt their service was barely a pass could it be because we dined as part of the fork festival?

About the restaurant

Alpha and Omega

Gemma Simply Italian restaurant is a no-frills place to get a great Italian feed. The place feels just like home – a neat and cosy little space with polished floors and bare-brick charm. Let your hair down and have a casual evening out, enjoying some of the best food that Italy has to offer. Chef and owner Alessandro Bollino is all about focusing on what you’ve come here for: the food. 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.

Best dish: Crudo San Daniele (Pizza with San Marzano tomato sauce, fior di latte mozzarella, prosciutto San Daniele, rocket, extra virgin olive oil and Parmigiano)
