Arriving late in Hervey Bay, we came across this restaurant and they fit us in for a great meal. We subsequently had take-away and another meal at the restaurant. Great welcome, great food, great place!

We are always on the look out for great pizza and pasta. We found it here, and the service was second to none and very reasonably priced . We will be back when in the Hervey Bay area again.

Great food and atmosphere. Very welcoming at early sitting with a baby. Service excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful. As a former resident of Hervey Bay I never fail to eat there when I visit.

A pleasant surprise. Being a regular patron of Italian cafes/bistros/restaurants, this restaurant rates extremely well. My friend and I shared the gnocchi with gorganzola and mushroom risotto for entree which as delicious. My Veal Scallopini was very good (not the best I have tasted but I would rate it 8/10), and friend's Spaghetti Marinara was great. Including a half litre... More

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
