A piece of Italy in Torquay. Traditional Italian food cooked as well if not better then many restaurants I visited in Italy Some good Italian radio on tje background, roomy tables and space in between. The service is informal and friendly but discreet. Bookings advisable at busy times as the restaurant is small with only few tables.

After reading trip advisor reviews chose Gemelli restaurant to try whilst down in Devon for weekend. We weren't disappointed, the food was lovely. A really nice intimate atmosphere with good service and really tasty Italian food. Portion sizes were generous and prices very reasonable. All in all we were very happy with our choice of restaurant and would definitely visit... More

Just great, truly great. We keep returning to this authentic and honest Italian, not just because the food is always wonderful, the portions generous, and the service so delightful. We return because eating here is just special. Hard to describe... it's just a special place...

Can't believe it was the same restaurant as those who have given a good rating! Food very poor, I make a much better lasagne myself. Soft drinks ordered, they arrived in their can. Only one waitress who was stretched with her workload. Couldn't' leave fast enough, sadly won't be returning and really can't recommend.

We did have to wait a little longer for our food but it was worth it, My whole family enjoyed our meals, the wine was also exquisite. To top it all off the chef came out at the end and asked every table(Including ours), if we... More

The menu had a great selection and the wine and soft drinks were fine. What stood out was the front of house service... More

My wife and I had the Sea Bass with Asparagus and lime sauce. Excellent flavours and plenty of veges. Felt comfortable in warm and friendly place. Enjoyed the night and still a good value meal.
