We were told our meal would be ready in approx 25 minutes which was fine with us. Bread,olives and sun-dried tomatoes were brought to our table(complimentary) along with our... More

Come here everytime we come to Torquay and booked a table here especially for my birthday. Everything about this place is amazing. The surroundings, the food and the amazing owners. Classic Italian food and hospitality.

Lovely food very reasonable prices. Good choices, not just pizza & pasta. Bit out of the way but worth hunting out.

Over the last two years or so we have been to this restaurant between 15-20 times with party sizes ranging from 2 to 10 persons. We have never been disappointed with the food or service. It is small restaurant family run which serves excellent authentic, home cooked Italian food. It is also very good value. There are some very good... More

This was our first visit to Gemelli's and my husband and I had chosen pizza it was the best we have ever tasted, the restaurant is small but has a very cosy and intimate feel to it. The service was excellent and not rushed which we like very much. Apart from pizza the menu was varied and had lots of... More

Visited here as part of a family holiday to the area. Everything about the two meals we had here was brilliant. The food was great, and some of the best Italian food I've eaten in Britain, and the service was excellent. I'd strongly recommend this place to anyone.

A lot of choice, quite a small venue. Food was good and was fairly priced. Would go back but unsure as to what for.

This is a small restaurant of about 20 covers. The " front of house" consist of a single person but she manages to be charming, attentive, efficient and professional, managing to keep the service flowing for all customers . The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The food is very good, tasty without being overly complex. I had the prawn, crab... More
