On the Gold Coast, there are plenty of superb places to pick up a meal, but few of them can compete with De Vito Waterfront. Their chef, David De Vito, is a noted opera singer – he made the final of Australia’s Got Talent – and has been known to come out and sing a few numbers while the diners enjoy their meal. His father was also an opera singer, and his family are steeped in both Italian cultural and culinary traditions, which are on display at De Vito Waterfront on Barney Street in Southport. The menu is filled with home-cooked, classic Italian dishes that takes the best of the bel paese, as well as other Australian and international dishes, which make the most of local ingredients and products. Fettuccine De Vito – a house signature – is our recommendation, featuring king prawns, premium speck, garlic shallots and parmesan, directly imported from Italy. Book a table at De Vito, right on the water, easily reached by the Gold Coast Highway, for a superlative meal in Southport.
Wow, the awesome food and great entertainment keeps us coming back. All the staff make you feel so welcome, like you've known them forever. Best service ever ! I can highly recommend the duck dish. Had it twice now - so yummy !
Jamie was a very good and professional waiter. Slightly lacked knowledge of the product, but made it up with courteousness. The food is always amazing and DelVito and his sister are just amazing singers. If you haven't been here before, I highly recommend to go. There is a rating for Noise that needs to be filled, and for some people music is noise, then it will be noisy, but if you love good music it will be an awesome experience.
Second time at De Vitos and it was even better than before. Can't recommend highly enough and will be back as soon as I can.
