Great Pizza

I am originally from Hervey Bay and go there regularly to visit family. My husband is Italian and we have been to Italy many times. I Love this place, as it is casual, you can choose BYO or not, and all the family is always happy to go there. We always make time to go when we are there and... read more

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.

My Husband took me out for dinner to Santini's. He made a booking and when we arrived we were greeted by a quiet but pleasant young lady who showed us to our table. We were seated and given menus and water. We ordered a bottle of wine and when it was bought out it was just placed on our table... More

Went for dinner with the family. Two pizza's ordered and a Chicken Parma. One of the pizzas was that soggy in the middle it could not be eaten. The kids pizza had that much ham on it, it tasted like sauce and salt. The chicken was boiled, not grilled, and was not crumbed much to our surprise. The toppings were... More

No longer open for lunch, Santini is even hard to book for dinner. Last September we went in for my birthday, and as a couple were seated in the "entry" section of the restaurant. We were asked to come in early to accommodate later bookings, so we arrived at 6:00. After 45 minutes, we left - 2 tables who entered... More

We just wish we could have Santini's every week! Unfortunately it is a special treat for us as we make our way down south a few times a year. The food is just perfect and a great indication of what Italian food is to come when we travel to Italy in September! I have the duck fettuccini which is just... More

Popped in without researching, glad I did Friendly and welcoming staff, good choice of food Although busy the staff were attentive and food did not take long to arrive. Tasted good and more than enough in the serving. Both beer and food reasonably priced Also, looked like a good ice cream offering, although I had no room!
