Delicious food, perfect evening!

Mauro gave his usual warm and friendly welcome last night in Biancos, I love the 2013 refurb, still looking fresh. We enjoyed the Italian cuisine and good wine. We went with family last night and I enjoyed the antipasto to share, with a delicious Paella and tried to find room for the Home made... read more

When I recently learned that I had to make another trip to Torquay my first thought was that I would be able to go to Biancos again. I first stumbled across this gem in November 2015 so this was my second visit. On this occasion I had the Anti Pasto to start followed by Sea Bass and as expected the... More

I needed a good restaurant for a family gathering of 9 adults and one 4month old baby which I thought might create a problem. I emailed Bianco's and quickly they came back to me saying we'd be very welcome. On arrival we were escorted upstairs and quite quickly we had the upstairs to ourselves. It was perfect. The staff were... More

This was our first visit to Biancos, it won't be our last but it won't be our first choice for a night out. The restaurant has a good ambience but the service was rushed. I would not recommend the Penne Arrabbiata it was very bland, it had no kick to it whatsoever.

After a disappointing visit a couple of years ago we thought we would give Biancos another try. Unfortunately it was still very disappointing. The food was average sirlon steak drastcally undercooked and mussels you cant open. However it was the indifferent and abrupt service that ruined the meal. Needless to say we will not be going back.

I love this restraunt and have been there many times over the years and standards there are always good. My favourite meal is tornados rossini, which comes with a lovely sauce. They do a lovely meat antipasti which is plenty to share. I tried carpaccio there for the first time and it was lovely. I have never had a bad... More

Really nice atmosphere, quite a romantic setting inside. Attentive staff and pasta to die for! Will surely be going back next time we are over that way. Lovely little place.

My Husband and I recently ate at Biaccos and the food was excellent. The staff were attentive and there was a great atmosphere in the restaurant. However, as soon as we both finished our starters our dinner was brought to our table. Don't get me wrong, the food is excellent but I felt a little rushed that night. This has... More
