NileGuide Expert tip:
Wine connoisseurs should ask for the "Bacchus" menu, designed to match the cuisine with wines by the glass.
Acclaimed Italian chef Augusto Gemelli has been at the helm of his namesake restaurant for over a decade. Deserving of its reputation as a quality gourmet-dining venue, Chef Gemelli fuses the very finest of Italian and Portuguese ingredients and is not afraid to experiment with flavours and techniques. The result is inspiring! Try the wild mushrooms and potato ravioli with rocket pesto sauce, baked with white cheese and diced fresh tomato. The wine list is equally eclectic, with excellent Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French labels to choose from. The desserts positively sing with distinction. Reservations recommended.
