Generally disappointing. Shabby and unwelcoming. Looked at reviews and booked as they were good. Food was very average and not particularly good value.

Very nice little Italian restaurant, friendly & good choice of food & wine. Seemed to be quite busy and popular and you can understand why. Prices were very fair.

A quirky little restaurant close to the centre of Torquay. Very quiet on a Wednesday evening in April - but that suited perfectly for our romantic birthday meal. A very wide selection of delicious looking dishes on the menu; freshly cooked to perfection in good time; and served with a smile. What more could anyone ask? An absolute gem -... More

There are plenty of Italian chain restaurants in Torquay but Gemelli is a proper Italian restaurant actually run by Italians. All the usual favourite dishes and they were happy to alter dishes to suit our needs.

Five family members dined here last Friday night. It was a last chance booking at short notice and I can say what a gem we found through trip advisor. Small and cosy and very friendly. Not overstated and posh but warm and friendly. The food was delicious. I ordered the lamb chops and they came a bit too pink for... More

I visit Torquay about once a quarter and this is the best meal I've had so far. I visited on a Monday night so it was very quiet, which I didn't mind. A very lovely young lady took my order and fetched me a nice glass of wine. My scallops were good and the steak was really excellent. The portions... More

This restaurant might be small but it's big on taste and quality of service and food. The welcome was warm and all tables were full.

Visited this restaurant when visiting friends late last year and enjoyed the atmosphere, service and food so much that when I visited again I asked if we could go to Gemelli's for a meal again. Again the restaurant was full but service was friendly and attentive. I kept it simple this time and ordered spaghetti bolognese but wow it was... More
