Just a quick note to thank all of the staff at Gemelli's for a fantastic night on Saturday 17th January 2015. We came to Gemelli's as a party of 10 for my wife's birthday and every meal was well praised, and we have to say it is the best Italian in the bay! We have all talked about it today... More

Thank you so much for accommodating our party tonight for a friend's birthday meal. Would definitely recommend to all. A lovely friendly atmosphere and great to visit an independent, family-run restaurant. Food was delicious and we were all served in good time despite being a large party. Hopefully visit again soon.

It's good to see independent traditional restaurants like this, a family run business that clearly puts quality of food before margins or profits. Highly recommended - as locals to Torquay we return here often and have never been disappointed. The steak is certainly the best in the area, by some distance.

Just to say a huge 'thank you' for the lunch which a large group of us had (over 20 people) just before Christmas. The food was superb, and excellent value for money. The owners of the restaurant offered us the christmas meal menu when I booked the event, however a number of the team members wanted to opt for the... More

We visit gemelli's as often as possible and were very upset they were fully booked leading up to Christmas but I guess this shows how good it is! The restaurant is a model of the family run eatery and excels in the aspect which is of most importance (the food!). It is modest inside which some may find a little... More

We visited the restaurant as part of a Christmas lunch from work. Granted there was a few of us but no side plates, we asked about the wine and wasn't given a wine menu so we just asked if they did a pino. One member of staff said it was the worst spag bog they had ever had. Tagalatelli was... More

Dear Sandy L, I am truly sorry you didn't enjoy your lunch especially if you found your tagliatelle cold. However you got some facts slightly distorted: it was not a Christmas lunch but an office lunch with the lunch menu (£6.95 for a main course and coffee or soft drink included) so there is no side plate or grissini or...

I have eaten here on several occasions and I can truly recommend this little restaurant. The chef / owner is Italian and he makes everything taste so very special. The pizzas are simply amazing. This and their relaxed, friendly atmosphere, make this place easy to come back to.

We tried this restaurant after finding it on Trip Adviser & have to agree it was really excellent. The ambience was very friendly, service faultless and the food was just great. Real authentic Italian food, one of the nicest Italian meals we have had for a long time - can thoroughly recommend the Pork Escalope. It's not a large restaurant... More
