As soon as you walk into Gemelli you notice right away that we don’t make your average Italian-American desserts here. That is because Vincenzo wanted to make sure you have the opportunity to taste many local, truly Italian specialties that you cannot find anywhere else in the area.
Gemelli Truly Italian Desserts
– Made daily from scratch with local, organic, farm-fresh ingredients –
The best around and Vincenzo’s all time favorite dessert. We offer it in 2 different flavors: Classic (lady fingers are dipped in freshly brewed La Colombe espresso), Signature (no coffee here, the lady fingers are dipped in our Dolce sauce).
Signature, filled-to-order Sicilian cannoli
Finally a cannoli worth talking about landed in town. Hand-filled to order with our signature filling handcrafted with local, organic ricotta, French Valrhona chocolate chunks, real Madagascar vanilla & freshly ground cinnamon.
Torta Tenerina (chocolate torte) – GF
From Vincenzo’s hometown, a rich, dark chocolate flourless cake served with a drizzle of homemade mascarpone mousse & local, organic, fresh whipped cream. Made with almond flour.
Italian style, thinner, way lighter and more delicate than any cheesecake is made with PA organic ricotta, homemade “pasta frolla” butter crust and drizzled with Italian sour cherries or homemade chocolate ganache.
Italian Apple Cake (seasonal)
One of our fall special, about 3 lb. of local Granny Smith apples are baked directly into the cake batter for a lighter yet delicious experience. Warm it up, with a scoop of your favorite gelato.
Mascarpone Mousse with Nutella drizzle – GF
A mascarpone based mousse, drizzled with real Nutella for something so decadent you’ll come back for more! Gluten Free
An organic, local whipped cream based mousse with French Valrhona chocolate chunks and Italian amaretto cookie crumbles.
Budino (caramel, Madagascar vanilla or chocolate)
Italian pudding, made with local organic milk, homemade caramel, French chocolate or fresh Madagascar vanilla beans. Served with local, organic whipped cream.
