We came here after seeing a review on Trip Advisor and I'm very pleased to be able to add to the long list of positive reviews. We visited Gemelli mid-week but we were lucky to walk in so early without making a reservation as the restaurant filled up quite quickly. This leads me to suggest that booking your table might...

Gemellis had been recommended by friends, it was difficult to book a table so we thought it must be good. My daughter and I were the only customers for the first ten minutes or so. We ordered main courses of pasta and fish and house wine. Free olives and bread were a little worrying, neither of very good quality. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a two course lunch which included a soft drink or coffee for £8.45. The food was very good, excellent coffee, the waitress friendly and efficient. There were people dining who were obviously regular customers and a table of Italian people. We will definitely be returning.

We have visited Gemelli's on our last two visits to Torquay and couldn't wait to visit again. Simply some of the best Italian food we have ever had. Wholeheartedly recommended.

We visited on a Thursday lunchtime and to be honest from the decor was abit apprehensive as could really do with redecorating. However the food and value for money made up for it. It was very tasty and not the usual processed Italian you get from a chain. Very good value and would definately go back when next in the... More

Excellent, Good food, family own, truly Italian. If you are used to have a good lunch at 13.00, is the best option in Torquay. Fresh starters+ Pasta al dente or risotto, generous portions. The only but is that sometimes are a bit slow. Highly recomended though.

We visited Gemelli Restaurant this evening and were not let down. The food was lovely; nice touches with olives and bread to pick at. The starter was gorgeous and the main was also excellent, actually being too big to finish!

Trying to find somewhere to eat whilst on holiday in Devon in July, Gemelli came up on Trip Advisor and based on the fantastic reviews, we set off to find it. It took a little bit of hunting down, as it is a modest, unassuming restaurant and quite basic looking inside, but don't let this fool you. The food was... More
