I found this restaurant whilst looking on TA, for nice places to eat. We couldn't get in on the Sat night but booked for the Sunday and boy was it worth the wait. It is a small restaurant and deli just up form the main town of Torquay. We were a family of 4, 2 adults one 6yr and a... More

Gemelli's is a small restaurant but is big on food. We recently ate at a media hyped restaurant where the food was average. This was a lovely surprise. As it is a small concern there is only one waitress and probably one chef but between them they do a great job. The best meal I have eaten since a treat... More

We first came to Gemelli around 5 years ago when we were visiting Torquay and decided to return this week when we were back for a short break and it is still as amazing now as it was then! We are Italian and the food really is authentic! We had the crab ravioli for starter which was amazing the flavours... More

This restaurant is a little off the beaten track and from the outside isn't a looker. However, that all changes once you taste the food on this wide ranging and authentic Italian menu. The portion sizes are also great for anyone who turns up hungry. The well cooked meals must owe, in part, to the small size of this restaurant.... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel and we weren't disappointed. The food was very good as was the service. The menu was not hugely extensive but there was enough choice for our party of four. Service was friendly and we left the restaurant having enjoyed the experience and feeling wed had a relaxed evening.

Huge pizza I saw by another table eating. Ran by husband and wife team and very friendly. Italian restaurants often are expensive but not so in this case... More
