We visited this restaurant for our anniversary dinner whilst on a short break in Torquay. The restaurant was recommended by the staff at the Haytor Hotel. I have to say that the food and the service was excellent. We had the Antipasto sharing starter, which was big enough for a lunch, followed by a fillet steak for myself and a... More

Biancos is a good middle of the road Italian restaurant. The food is well cooked and the service was very friendly.

can you complain about helpings being too generous? Both had the mushroom for a started, and it was 2 or 3 times bigger than we have had before, so be hungry if you want a starter, especially as the main courses are absolutely fantastic

On our arrival at Bianco's we were POINTED to our table by a man behind the counter! He couldn't even be bothered to show us to our seats. The paper napkins had been pushed into the wine glasses. The waitress, who was very pleasant, then took our order. The food was OK but nothing amazing. On previous visits to Bianco's... More

The sea bass was ok, but my friend said the steak was cooked well but was flavourless. The service was very good and there was a good wine selection.

Having gone to Torquay for a short holiday, we struggled to find restaurants who would accommodate my gluten free Husband. Having gone to Bianco's, on recommendation, we were disappointed at the lack of gluten free on the menu. Bianco's offered gluten free pasta but struggled with the sauce. My Husband requested penne arrabiata but was served with gluten free pasta... More

The service was friendly and I did not feel rushed. The food tasted lovely and my fillet was cooked just how I like it. The scalloped potatoes that accompany the meal are very old school. I used to work in a hotel and the owners used to serve them with there full English - this was 8 years ago, normal... More
