We called in here on the off chance that they might have a table for two. It looked very busy so we weren't hopeful but they did manage to find us a table. In fact, the service was very good with the staff very friendly & helpful. As well as the a la carte menu there is the choice of... More

The food here is delicious, it was a treat to have carpaccio. The restaurant has a lovely modern feel to it, we felt very comfortable, it was a lovely experience and well worth the money. I would 100% go back to Biancos if visiting Torquay again.

My partner and myself regularly visit torquay but never tried this restaurant before. We'll I can tell you it's food is fantastic best Italian I've ever been to. Wine was also very nice. Friendly staff and excellent service. A must visit if you like Italian you won't be disappointed. Is expensive but you get what you pay for.

Great service and food. Ribeye was amazing and wife's Paella also. Highly recommend. Portions are large so would share a starter if we come back to this area.

We hadn't booked and were searching Torquay and passed this full and busy restaurant. We tried anyway and they were kind enough to find us a table upstairs, which also very busy. The service was fabulous, as was the wine, and the food was even better. Highly recommended would definitely come back.
