Great food, very accommodating as we came with 3 children. Can't wait to come back!

Pizza was very nice with beautiful texture for the base, if a little too charred in some spots. Gnocchi were delicious. Will certainly be back to try other things on the menu.

Absolutely delicious and superb service to boot! Great traditional offering and the fussy eater at the table was well catered for as well.

What a wonderful find in the heart of Carlton ! Had a large group of 11 on a Sunday afternoon and everything was perfect. Nice, homey atmosphere where at last we could enjoy our conversation, food was delicious and service excellent. Will remember this find for future meals, either for groups or smaller numbers.

2nd time at Gemma, food is very good. however very poor service. we ordered 3 pasta dishes to share, we noticed that all 3 dished were entree size, very little portions. We also noticed that other customers ordering the pasta dishes were main size much bigger portions! We did mention this to the waitress, however no acknowledgement from management. We were ripped off. Very poor service. we will not be back.
