Santini offers a great range of italian delicacies to suit most tastes. The home made gnocchi pesto and chicken was amazing. Left me wanting to lick the plate clean - seriously! Clean and well presented. Good serving portions. Staff friendly. Must do dining!

This pizzeria was nearby to our motel so it was an easy choice when we were eating in one night. The two pizzas we ordered (Capricciosa and Supreme) were heaped with good-quality, fresh ingredients. The base was a little thicker than I like, but that's a matter of personal taste. The only small criticism I have is I thought the... More

This is close to the best Italian food you will find outside of Melbourne. The staff are attentive and the owners put much love and care into their food. Their pizza's are always crusty and have plenty of toppings and the other meals are full of flavour, (Risotto and gnocchi are really good!). It can get very busy and booking... More

We have visited Santini's a few times on Saturday nights and the house full sign has always been out when we arrive. Obviously the other diners are like us in giving full marks for great food and friendly service. We will keep coming back (and making a reservation)

The choice of authentic Italian food is great in fact I was struggling to decide between the gnocchi and the pizza! My only critism would be that it can get very noisy. They have made an attempt to deaden the noise by putting painted egg cartons on the wall - which looks pretty naff if you ask me - carpet... More

Situated along the Esplanade at Torquay, in Hervey Bay is the family owned Santini Restaurant. As Italian Restaurants go, it might seem an average to good place to dine out with family or friends. However it's the consistent quality that keeps visitors and locals alike coming back for more. The gnocchi is freshly made twice a week by the owner... More

Took my wife to dinner last night and it was exceptional. Great, friendly service. Excellent food. Staff were flat out but still friendly and very efficient. Even better than last time, if that is at all possible. If you wish to dine there, you MUST, MUST, book. You cannot just walk in there for dinner and expect a table, as... More

A group of us locals headed out mid week for a birthday dinner and we're extremely surprised and disappointed with the service tonight. #nothappyjan

Pizza and pasta is above average. We got good and friendly service. Our kids liked their meals and everyone was happy. So we came back again the next night.
