Our Signature Pasta: A Taste of Italian in Fortitude Valley

Take a culinary journey and delight your taste buds with some of our signature pasta dishes at Gemelli. Here at our authentic Italian restaurant in Fortitude Valley, we shine a spotlight on iconic, classic flavours with dishes that capture the tradition, artistry and passion of Italian cuisine.

Spaghetti Alla Marinara 

A staple of southern Italian cuisine, marinara is a simple tomato-based sauce. Paired with our market fish, Queensland prawns, calamari, clams and mussels, our chefs at Gellini elevate the vibrance of this classic sauce with the bounty of our local waters to the rejoice of seafood lovers who visit our Italian restaurant.

Spaghetti Alla Carbonara 

A wildly beloved dish throughout Italy and the world, carbonara is the ultimate representation of simplicity done right. A creamy sauce of raw beaten eggs, accentuated with crisp bits of pancetta and finished with freshly cracked pepper and Pecorino cheese, this tasty dish contains no cream, garlic or butter but offers a truly delightful flavour.

Rigatoni Ragu 

Our 8-hour slow-cooked oxtail and pork shin ragu is luscious, comforting and incredibly delicious. The sauce is made with crushed tomatoes and topped with shaved Pecorino cheese, while our hand-made rigatoni with its hollow shape and rigid surface makes for the perfect carrier. Rich, hearty and rustic, it remains one of the most popular dishes for diners visiting the strip of James Street restaurants.

Gnocchi Al Pesto

Enjoy the more delicate side of Italian cuisine, with the famous and popular potato gnocchi. Paired with fragrant basil pesto, another classic Italian staple, this dish celebrates freshness and simplicity while offering a bold, flavourful mouthful with each bite.

Enjoy a harmony of delightful textures and flavours with a sauce made of finely chopped basil leaves, pine nuts, Parmigiano-Reggiano, garlic, cherry tomatoes and olive oil, coating the pillowy gnocchi for a light and satisfying dining experience.
