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.

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...More

Found on the trip advisor list of "dog-friendly" restaurants. Just checking that this is so and that "dog-friendly" does not mean sitting outside with no shelter. :)
