It was a cold February Friday night in Torquay and our party of eight wanted a nice meal out at a restaurant that wasn't part of the same old bland restaurant chains. We found Gemelli after a quick search on our phones - and we're so glad that we did. The restaurant is small and friendly and has the atmosphere... More

We went to this restaurant because of the comments on trip adviser. We were not disappointed. It was a cold night and the fire made it all very cosy. Main courses were a pizza and lasange. Both very good followed by tiramisu which was excellent. Good atmosphere,

Lovely food, really delicious and tasty. Highly recommend the food here and the husband and wife team are really friendly. Good service, cozy fire. Could do with a make over but the food is fantastic, so ignore the decor!

What can I say? Great food with fantastic, friendly service. Not your usual Italian chain restaurant, this one is family run with a great menu choice. I had a pizza and it was Devine, so big I could manage any pudding. The lady was very attentive and the bill was very reasonable. It's out of the main hub but worth... More

After years of visiting Pizza Expresses, Prezzos and Bella Italias, I never realised how much I was missing! The Caprino pizza was delizioso! I would thoroughly recommend supporting this lovely independent restaurant instead of going to a chain. The food served here is far more superb and cheaper!

This restaurant has for us first class service, good tasting food along with plenty of choices. Time between each meal was perfect. Well worth a visit.

Based on trip advisor reviews, myself and my wife decided to give this restaurant a try whilst on a New Year break to Torquay. Some of the reviews mentioned the decor as outdated, I prefer to say authentic. The menu is plentiful, with something for all tastes. My Wife had Mozzarella and Ham In breadcrumb for a starter which was... More

Gemelli is a family run little restaurant where the food is prepared 'the traditional way' and accompanied with carefully selected wines. At Gemelli we will try to establish a friendly atmosphere with a relaxed yet attentive service "Bistro style" for you to enjoy and see you back again and again...
