My husband and I decided to try this little Italian following so many good reviews. We were not disappointed and in fact the food was delicious. The staff was really friendly and we had a sublime meal. I definitely recommend!

Visited Biancos during our stay in Torquay, we hadn't booked but we had a table no trouble. We decided on the 2 course set menu which also included a bottle of wine. My partner prefers red and I prefer rose so the waiter very kindly said we could have 2 glasses each of our preferred wine as a bottle is... More

We were in Torquay to meet up with my daughter and her partner to celebrate her birthday. She had booked Binaco's a few weeks in advance so we had no idea what to expect. Well, what a fabulous surprise! Great service, great food, lovely staff and completely unpretentious. There's no need to say much more really.......go on, give it a... More

Entertaining some VIP Norwegian Customers tonight. We were a little late arriving but that was no problem at all. Staff absolutely fantastic, food top notch. We all enjoyed everything and all was faultless. So enthused that this intimate restaurant can deliver such excellence - well done to all and my thanks for making us so welcome.

We tried to go to Amicis, but they were full and directed us to the more intimate little Biancos, their sister restaurant across the road. We hadn't booked, so were delighted to get a table in the window. The staff were friendly and polite, and the food was excellent, particularly the Bruschetta starter, full of fresh tomatoes and lovely flavours,... More

We had a meal with family recently as quite a large group. The service was very good as I have had in previous visits. ( my girlfriend and myself haven't visited for a few years now) We ordered the starters and they came in good time and of good quality and taste. The mains came out and everyone seemed happy...

The food and service here is second to none. We didn't book a table and that was not an issue (however in busier periods i think you'd definitely need to book), The food was truly EXCELLENT as was the service, not a single negative comment!!

We had an unexpected weekend away from work and booked a last minute deal in Torquay, and had a quick search round for somewhere to eat in the evening. We love Italian and had a look at Bianco's menu which had a lovely range and reasonably priced. When we got there the place was full, but luckily we had booked,... More
