We were recommended this Restaurant. This is a family run Restaurant. Service could be a little faster but we had a very enjoyable meal.

Not easy to find, but worth it. Very reasonably priced Italian restaurant, privately owned and run by the owner, good menu selection, and good service. Small, so make sure you reserve a table. We went twice , a recommendation in itself.

Best Italian in the bay by far food is out of this world so make sure you book in advance as only a small place and fills up very quick

This was our first visit - and what a delight to find such a lovely little restaurant tucked away in one of the less-salubrious Torquay neighbourhoods. The restaurant is 'cosy' - well, OK it's quite small - but the welcome was warm and friendly, the ambiance very nice, the food was really great and very authentic as well as good... More

Fantastic meal with family and friends, busy little restaurant and reasonably priced. Would 100% recommend if you want something small and family run. Not much of a 'looker' from the outside but the food more than makes up for the exterior and slightly dated decor!!

My wife and I with our little one had a meal this evening and we was very impressed! The lasagna was really good the best I have had in a restuarant. The service was excellent too! This place was much better than your chains of Prezzo, Pizza express etc.

It was our last night in Torquay and wanted something different to fish and chips so went to trip adviser and found this little gem. Followed google map otherwise might not have found it. It is like having dinner in someone's house which I loved. Only maximum of 18 diners in the room at one time. The house wine was... More

My mother was treating myself and grand daughter out for a meal on Sunday night. The food was exceptional and I ordered a vegetarian option as a main but wanted some seafood so were happy to accommodate off menu. What was odd was the service was really quite bad very little communication must have been a really bad day, with... More

Enjoyed a great meal in Gemelli's last night, we didn't book but was lucky enough to get a table. Would suggest booking though. Great food four starters and four mains for £77.00. Brushetta, two mixed meat selections and a goats cheese, followed by a rather large pizza equally large spaghetti bolognaise, lamb chops (5of) with seasonal vegetables which were cooked... More

Gemelli is a family run little restaurant where the food is prepared 'the traditional way' and accompanied with carefully selected wines.
