Wow wow wow! This place from the moment I walk in customer service was so lovely and very kind they were quick and efficient too! The food was so affordable great portion sizes and it tastes authentic as you can get it! It was so delicious and it had good amount of vegan options as well! Will definitely be coming back soon.

A warm, inviting, family friendly restaurant. The pasta, wine/drinks and pizzas are delicious and well priced. Was a favorite 5/6 years ago and after last night's visit I would definitely recommend to friends. Will have to go back for Wednesday evenings $15 pizzas 😊 See less

Hands down, one of the best pizzas in Melbourne. Its incredible how they stood out in a very competitive and overcrowded market. We had the pizza calabrese and porcini among others that were bursting with flavours.The staff was super friendly, warm and welcoming. The ambience is perfect for friends and family. Overall, I rate this place 10/10 See less

Disappointing service, waited an hour for the food to come out. Was blamed by the staff that we “didn’t tell them we were sharing food” and that it was our fault that the food came out late? A staff took a group photo of us and we thought it was a friend’s phone but it was the restaurant’s. Had to make them delete it and their reasoning for taking our photo was because ‘the cake was in it’ when it wasn’t even from their restaurant. Overall just a frustrating 2 hour visit. See less

Ingredients and toppings on pizza are very tasty. But slightly disappointed with the pizza dough. The middle part was too soggy and thin. Gnocchi were good but nothing amazing. Service also pretty average, had to call the waitress a few times to order. Tiramisu was alright. See less

Edit: dropped stars after the second visit. Second time at Gemma. My partner and I returned with a interstate friend, as we had a wonderful experience the first time we visited. We ordered almost exactly the same thing — a risotto, a gnocchi and a pizza. The risotto we had during our first visit was creamy, fragrant, and fresh; the second one was dry and the seafood overcooked — the calamari was especially chalky. The first gnocchi was chewy and melted into the cream; the second one doughy and dry. The pizza was as we remembered, beautiful char on the dough, and lovely balance of ingredients. See less

Will definitely be back soon! Environment was cozy and authentic, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious without being too heavy/stodgy. You can tell the recipes have been passed down through the family for generations! Highly recommend :) See less

Somewhat unassuming from the outside, we were blown away by how good our pizza was. Opted for the simple Margherita and Melanzane pizzas, they were just like what you would find in Italy. Can’t go wrong with $15 pizzas on Wednesday too! See less

The pizza is very good, although the restaurant is small, it has a nice atmosphere both in the lights and in the background music. The staff were very kind and attentive. See less

Absolutely delicious pasta and gnocchi. The garlic bread also beautiful. Staff were so down to earth and friendly and so sweet to my toddler. Highly recommended. See less

The wood-fired pizzas and garlic foccacia are delicious but their table service even though friendly could be better. We had a dinner booking on a very hot day and was hoping to be seated indoors. Unfortunately, when we arrived, we were informed that we will be seating outdoors without any fans because the floors were being mopped. At the end of the meal, we also had to wait almost 10 minutes just to pay the bill because there were no staff at the counter. We did still enjoy our meals and would love to return for takeaways but perhaps not dining in at this stage. See less

The people who work here are some of the nicest people in hospitality. They make the best fresh gnocchi you could imagine, and the seafood spaghetti is brilliant- one of our favourite Italian eateries with real Italian flavour, passion and care. Great to eat in but also the food travels well for take away. Overall fantastic value and great food and service all round. Will continue to keep coming back. See less

You will GNOCCHI be disappointed! Here on a Wednesday for $15 woodfired pizza! Regina Bianca my absolute favourite, pears on a pizza just works when it's made by these guys. Gnocchi were small servings, but absolutely delicious. Chilli oil and extra cheese also brought in without asking. Service was friendly and attentive, kudos to the chef who let me place one last order to go! See less

One of the best experiences I have had at an Italian Restaurant. The pizza and the pasta we ordered were delicious! And probably some of the freshest and flavourful pasta I have had. I usually find cheese gnocchi quite sickening, but this gnocchi was very well balanced. Just from looking around, you can definitely tell that this family owned business puts in a lot of work to make sure every person is well catered to. The staff were also so friendly and accommodating and the overall ambiance is unmatched. I have never been to a restaurant, and felt so cozy and 'at home' while enjoying my meal. Do yourself a favour, and try this place! You won't be disappointed! See less
