We booked this restaurant as it was near to our hotel and an Italian, as we love Italian food! We were not disappointed. It was a very intimate restaurant, great service and lovely food. Be warned the starters are huge, I had no space for dessert. We could not finish our sharing platter (the best mozzarella I have ever tasted!)... More

We have been coming to Bianco's for over 20 years and we have always had great food and the service is always excellent and friendly. The owner Mauro is always around and takes pride in providing excellent food and surroundings. The sirloin steak cardinal is highly recommended as are the fresh mussels as a starter. Well recommended by the Williams... More

The restaurant was very nicely decorated with a lovely cosy feel. We had carpaccio of beef and fried seafood to start -both excellent. Steak and carbonara for main courses. The steak was absolutely sensational and the carbonara the best I have had in a long time. Very nice selection of wines as well. Service was fantastic- very attentive staff. Cannot... More

Booked this restaurant for my son's birthday - we hadn't been before. The decor and surroundings are very good. We were greeted and shown to our table promptly on arrival in the upstairs seating area. The service was very good and the food - we had steaks - was really lovely and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I would... More

My wife liked the look of this place but I did not. Wished I had trusted my instincts. Was not comfortable with the staff or the place so thought I would keep it simple. Tried a spaghetti Bolognese thinking you cant go wrong with that. They did. The sauce was a fairly unnatural colour, probably because of the immense amount... More

You will never taste cheesecake like this. Just go there and eat nothing else. Amazing food. I wish I could have the recipe but I didn't think they would give it to me. I have not got over this ,even after a few weeks. Lovely restaurant in a very dull area at this time of year. Saved the weekend!!! Send... More

I have stayed in Torquay a few times over the last few years and I have always visited Biancos for dinner. The first time we just happened to see the menu at the door and give it a try and since then, I pre booked. Lovely food and good service. I look forward to visiting again soon.

Nice decor, friendly atmosphere and the food is pretty good too! We opted for two courses after pre dinner drinks and also ordered a bottle of wine. The wine list is OK and most wines are a reasonable price. My only criticism would be that perhaps the staff could be a little engaging "during" the service. The welcome was warm... More
