Loved the array of appetizers we ordered. Great portions and the flavour was amazing! Enjoyed the mussels and shrimp and the steak entree was incredible. Will definitely be back again.

“Absolutely delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

If you are looking for authentic Italians cuisine Santini's is the place. The food is absolutely delicious. It's been a challenge to find Italian cuisine as you would find in Italy, until now. There is no need for a passport just a reservation.
Don't be alarmed if you hear humming. That's your palate telling you to sing for joy. And the service, well just sit back and enjoy the warmth of Italy.
Special thanks to the chef and family for bringing their heritage to Santini's.

“Absolutely Recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

We were fortunate enough to be able to dine at Santini's with a group of friends on a recent trip to Collingwood. We found the décor at Santini's to be warm and inviting! Staff was very professional and attentive. The authentic Italian food had great flavor that comes from the heart. Hats off to the Chef, staff and decorator! We would absolutely recommend this restaurant.

“Literally the best food I have ever eaten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

As a professional and a restaurant connoisseur, it takes a lot to impress me. On this occasion however, I was VERY IMPRESSED.

I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere elegant for our anniversary. I was recommended Santini's from my doctor and this restaurant surpassed my expectations in both service quality and food quality. The food at Santini's was the best food I have ever eaten in my life, literally. It blew my mind how good the food was, my girlfriend also agreed. The service was also exceptional. The waitress was very attentive and helpful and I never needed to wait to get her attention. Both our dishes were brought to our table at the exact same time which was something I liked as well.

I don't usually comment online about my restaurant experiences, however after this experience I almost feel obligated to tell my story so that everyone eats at this restaurant. As a person of Italian heritage, Santini's warm atmosphere made it seem like I was eating supper at my Nonna's house. Overall it is easy to say that my anniversary dinner was a success thanks to Santini's and I recommend this to anyone looking for an elegant, romantic or family experience. Make sure you make reservations though, because I hear that they are often booked up.

Santini's = 10/10 experience

“Nice new authentic Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

I have had two meals there this month - had the Veal Marsala both times - very good - love the sauce. All authentic ingredients, and many are imported directly. While this adds to the cost of the meal, the quality is very high. Going back again to try some other dishes - looking forward to trying some specials.....
