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.

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.

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. :)
