Lunchtime Italian Flavours in the Heart of the Gold Coast

Add a taste of Italy to your lunch with a visit to Gemelli, an authentic Italian restaurant on the Gold Coast. From salads to pasta, risotto and seafood dishes, our Italian lunch menu offers a delightful selection of classic dishes perfect for a weekday or weekend lunch.

Indulge in Italian Bread

If you have a hankering for bread during lunch, there’s plenty more to discover beyond sandwiches and burgers. Our garlic focaccia is crispy on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside. Infused with aromatic herbs and served with an optional olive tapenade, that incredible texture is complemented by an equally delicious taste.

There’s also the classic Italian staple Bruschetta, which harmoniously blends cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella, topped on crispy slices of bread. Of course, you can also include pizza in this category, a favourite any time of the day at our Italian restaurant in Fortitude Valley as well as the Gold Coast. So don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t have an authentic Italian pizza for lunch!

A Seafood Lunch to Remember

Add some freshness to your Italian restaurant lunch with a yellowfin tuna tartare, served with fried capers, chives, black olives, lemon zest and buffalo stracciatella. Other highlights include the Gamberoni al Forno, a delicious dish of wood-fired Queensland king prawns.

There’s also the Calamari Alla Griglia to enjoy, which pairs grilled calamari with a fresh salad. Want to go a bit more extravagant? Go for the Polpo Alla Griglia, featuring tender grilled octopus served with radicchio, capers, potato and chilli salad.

Go for a Pasta or Salad

Load up at our Italian restaurant in Fortitude Valley with a classic authentic pasta dish like our Rigatoni Ragu with slow-cooked oxtail and pork shin or a creamy Rigatoni Bacio with chicken, avocado and mushroom. Craving something lighter? Go for one of our salads.

There’s the classic and simple Giardino Italiano with lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, olives, onions and aged balsamic. Another homely salad dish is our Mamma’s Insalata, a tasty mix of radicchio, fennel, Spanish onion, orange, parsley and crushed walnuts with mustard and lemon dressing. No matter what you vibe for a lunchtime recharge, we’ve got a delicious Italian dish to suit.
