Very good but noisy

The meals were very nice, although they ran out on beef carpaccio. The service was good. The wine by the glass(or mini bottle) was very limited. It was noisy, but I guess difficult to do anything about it. All in all, a good restaurant to get a decent meal. We have not tried the Pizza!

Had a booking for 12 people over a week prior. When we arrived there weren't enough wine glasses to go around. Ended up drinking out of water glasses. When we ordered we were told there would be a short wait. We finally got our meals about an hour and three quarters later. To make matters worse there were several tables... More

We enjoyed the meal so much we went back the following night. I had the gnocchi with gorgonzola and mushrooms both times. We had to go back the second night so my other party members could have their own instead of stealing mine! Pizzas are good and the gelati some of the best I have had (including many cups throughout... More

Pretentious and overrated are two words to describe santini. It would be great to think a good Italian meal was possible in Hervey Bay, but you should likely look elsewhere. Va Fangul Santini!

Great staff and delicious food. During a very busy service time, Trudy was still enthusiastic and friendly. We chose to have pizzas, and they were excellent. This restaurant certainly lived up to our expectations.

We come here regularly when we visit Hervey Bay but for the past 2 visits have been very disappointed with the poor attitude of one young waitress. The other waitress however was excellent. Her demeanour indicated to us that she would rather be working somewhere else and appears to have no customer service skills. The pasta was delicious however the... More

Excellent food just the best Pizza.. But the Waitresses are slack. They need training, about looking after customers - LOOK, LOOK "we are Here" and they seem to have NO Training. Hours are Evenings Only from 5pm and Closed Mon & Tues. But I keep coming back 'cause the Pizzas are Superb.
