We had a lovely meal here in May and wanted to go back. Noticed today the building is for sale while driving by. Not sure if they are still operating. Hope they are, good find, best Italian in the immediate area.

Three of us had the lasagna. We all took half home for another dinner. Another friend ordered the appetizer of mussels which was served on top of spaghetti, as his dinner. He thought it was wonderful. The bread was very tasty and the service, by...More

My wife and I ate at gemmas several times in march and the food, service and decor were great. Don't overlook the cocktails and wine list. I'd strongly recommend gemmas.

We went for a late lunch with our children. Food was definitely overpriced but good. Wait staff was friendly. Closed in Sundays.

Pricey for the quality. Caesar salad was fresh and dressing was very good. Atmosphere was nice. Manicotti was very average and by no means the best. Not like manicotti, but more like shells and flavor was a disappointment. Total of six in our party and...More

Enjoyed out first visit to Gemmas. Our server, Ashely, did an excellent job. I agree with a previous post about the bread. Sliced and a bit dry, did not bode well with the dipping oil. Mr M enjoyed the lasagna, a house speciality. My bolognese...More

There were several negative aspects regarding my recent visit to Gemma, but the worst was finding a hair in my manicotti after I had eaten nearly half of it. It was not mine. It was black and I am blonde. It was approx. 2" long,...More

One of Pinehurst's hidden "gems," Gemma's Trattoria has welcomed guests to enjoy its contemporary Italian cuisine, charming ambiance, warm hospitality, and the best lasagna you have ever tasted since opening in 2013. The kitchen prepares every dish using fresh and, whenever possible, locally sourced ingredients. Guests can expect a casual, walk-in setting with a standard a la carte dinner menu, plus nightly Chef's specials of classic European dishes re-imagined. We are named for our two-year-old daughter Gemma, and you'll likely meet her if you visit often enough. In Italian Gemma means a precious gem or jewel, just like the Southern Pines community here in the sandhills of North Carolina.
