Best Pizza I've had in a long time

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... read 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.

There was an extensive menu and the food was super,nicely cooked and good value for money.My husband's steak was particularly good, as was my risotto main course, however I... More

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

We went to this restaurant today very small Italian restaurant seats about 22 people. Looks like a husband (chef) and wife (serving) team. The food portions were big and decent quality. The service was poor. The waitress came over at one point to check how much wine we had left in our bottle and look at it and put it... More

Some people do not wish to finish their bottle of wine but prefer to take it home instead. How are we supposed to know what everybody prefers? I am sure Ewa came to check with you if your food was fine while you were eating, check your wine (as you described) and you even had a chat with me on... More

The place is not in the most obvious location, as in not on the main high street but it's not hard to find. The food is very good, serving was quick and the staff very friendly. We went there for dinner and got served one of the best Italian food we had. The tiramisu is something you don't want to... More

Went there expecting the best Italian grub in Torquay based on the reviews here. I'm Italian, so I had expectations. The menu looked promising although it wasn't the same as the one on the window. My girlfriend caprino starter was tasty while my asparagus was decent. Sadly the poached egg that came with the asparagus wasn't well executed while the... More
