Chef and reality TV star Tim Love just jumped into Italian cuisine with the opening of his newest Fort Worth restaurant Gemelle. The Italian restaurant at 4400 White Settlement Road opened yesterday, serving up pizza and pasta and more. This follows up on Love’s 2016 Italian-focused pop-up restaurant called Ufficio.
That name means “twins” in Italian, inspired by Love’s daughters, Ella and Anna. The restaurant is located in a reconstructed bungalow along Fort Worth’s Trinity Trails designed by Justin Seitz of Seitz Interior Design. There’s room for 38 inside in the light-filled space and room for 40 outside in the patio and garden. That outdoor space is made for a party, with bocce ball courts and backyard garden cabañas.
Find frozen Aperol Spritz and Bellinis at the bar, with dishes like cacio e pepe, chicken Milanese sandwiches, celery root carpaccio, and pizza topped with Italian asparagus, spring onion, goat cheese, and lemon zest.
The walk-in-only Gemelle is open Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the dining room and 4 p.m. to midnight at the garden bar. On Friday and Saturday, the dining room is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and the garden bar is open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
