We dine at Gema several times a month. It is a small mom&pop type of place, with authentic italian cooking. The food is always good, and well presented. The waitresses are friendly and efficient. Be sure to check the Specials board for things like Kudu stew. Their pizzas are among the best in town, and their home-made ice-cream is irresistible. There is parking right outside.

The restaurant is managed by a grumpy old man who is rude and disrespectful to the customers. We definitely won't be going back to Gema that is for sure!!

Hard to believe that you can find the most authentic and best quality Italian food so far from Italy. The grilled articokes (out of season) were amazing and tasted fresh, the porcini grilled in the pizza oven were perfect. The home made pasta with scampi i will definately come back for again.

As mentioned in my previous review we were so amazed by this restaurant back in 2014 that we definitely wanted to come back. So we did, twice, and we were not disappointed. We had again a perfect pizza and delicious deserts. I still highly recommend this restaurant.

Found the Melanzane Parmigiana quite okay - a bit tasteless and overloaded with pasta - very little melanzane. The focaccio was nice. Had to remind waitress to bring olive oil. Small restaurant, cosy and nice venue.
