My partner and i came spontanious without any booking. We tried 5 different entree sized dishes to share and each of them was absolutely devine. The house wine was also reasonably priced and good quality. Definitely good value for money. Home made italian cuisine. The service was excellent as well! We will be back!

With all intentions of dining somewhere near by for our anniversary we stumbled upon this little number and were sold. It lived up to and exceeded any expectations we had. Fantastic service combined with humble food that spoke volumes. Great night out! Thank you.

A good sign when visiting new places is that the restaurants are busy - the locals know where to eat. We followed suit and ordered takeaway on a very busy Friday night.

the staff were attentive and pleasant. The food wasn't bad, but have had better. Will try again for something different, so it's certainly on the list to go again. Nice surroundings and good ambiance, so bottom line, had a pleasant night out with pretty good food and good service.

The food here was very good and of a reasonable price. The menu had a lot of choice, including some unusual toppings for the pizzas. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Being able to bring your own wine made it a cheaper meal than in some places.

This is one of those places that improves with age. When it changed hands several years ago I wondered if it could be bettered. It has got better and remains one of the most popular and economical Italian bistros in regional Queensland

We had an amazing meal at Santini!!! The service was excellent, and the wait staff were friendly and helpful. We had the pasta carbonara which was great and 3 pizzas which were all scrumptious!! The gelato to finish was the icing on the cake. Just as good as any italian restaurant in Italy. We had a wonderful time.
