Pizza was really good! Loved the roof top area, they even had blankets for when it got cold. Nutella desert pizza was small but still yum.

We arrived early and were told to wait upstairs at the rooftop bar while our table was cleared. 20 minutes later no one had come and grabbed us, so I followed it up with the barman to be told our table had been taken by someone else. They found another table for us on the 2nd floor, we didn't receive any menus for 15 minutes and after repeatedly asking for water (and being told they were waiting for glasses) I just gave up. The food came out quickly once we were able to order and it was amazing. Was planning to stick around for dessert but after failing to receive any attention from the staff we just paid and left. Clearly understaffed for a Saturday night and their fancy seating software is clearly failing as well. Would come back for the food, but not on a sat or Friday night.

The pizza was delicious, as was my Pretty Micky Spritz cocktail. Service good but a bit slow with regard to the changing over of water bottles. Being seated on the middle floor and next to a huge window rather than another tableful of diners was a plus. I look forward to a return visit and rooftop dining on a warm summer evening.

The service was not ideal, we were sitting at our table for 30 minutes before being served water and taken drinks orders (even after three people from the table had gotten up to ask the wait staff to serve us). It must be disappointing for the chefs downstairs as the food is delicious - and comes very quickly once our orders were in (only took about 15 minutes for all 11 people to receive their meal after finally ordering). Great service by the manager downstairs, just need a few more waiters working to deal with the service issues upstairs.

Great restaurant. The staff are helpful and attentive, and the food is always of a very high standard. I would definitely go there again. Fantastic views from the roof top terrace and the huge picture window adds to the great modern meets vintage atmosphere. I would highly recommend.

The food was delicious. The restaurant was clean. A little cold but quite nice. Would have preferred a bet seat location, the restaurant wasn't ever full. We booked and got there a lot earlier than most, and stayed longer. mostly it was really nice. James Brayshaw - from the footy show ate not far away from us.

Santoni is a cheery, non-pretentious, high quality restaurant where the atmosphere is happy, the service fast and efficient and the price very affordable. It's the place you go when you want something that resembles a home cooked meal - without the hassle of making it yourself. It's always a fun place to visit, especially with family.

Really yummy pizza! Good price as well, not too expensive. The lemon, lime and bitters was really nice and it came in a good size glass. The popcorn chicken was amazing! I could eat 10 bowls of it. The nutella pizza was to die for!

Fun impromptu mothers day lunch. Fast tasty pizzas, free Prosecco for mum most appreciated. Staff friendly and efficient, and offered to turn on the heater if we needed it. Lovely views from roof top Only downside is that it is a little pricey for the style, esp $11 for nondescript chips!

The staff at Santoni were very friendly and the food was delicious! I would highly recommend the popcorn chicken! For 2 of us (sharing a main and entree with 4 drinks) it was under $100 so very reasonably priced.

Good food, very friendly and helpful staff, and a good atmosphere. The only drawback was that we were sitting by the door in a very cold draft .Happy to go again any time - next time we'll book earlier to ensure better seating.

We booked on the rooftop and the view was fantastic. The pizza was good, not amazing, but there is only so much you can do with pizza I suppose. Service was fine, they were a little busy but not the staffs fault.

Great tasting pizza and a nice relaxed vibe, unfortunately the it was a cold night and the heater near us didn't work but the staff were quick to offer blankets as a back up. Would definitely recommend Santoni to a friend

We ordered pizzas: the funghi, san daniele and caramelised onion. I really liked the pizza crust and texture, the toppings could have been a little bit more flavourful. The san daniele prosciutto was excellent!!

Best pizza! and best staff. Really enjoy the rooftop dining experience. It was freezing at but the staff faced the heating directly on us and in no time we were warm and comfortable.

Food was delicious and staff were very friendly and attentive. Would have been a better experience if they didn't allow smokers on the rooftop around where people are trying to eat their meals. The smoke was off-putting.

Lovely food and very good service. Very loud patrons but a hot Saturday night so that's understandable. Will be going again and again - but will book well in advance for a more suitable time slot.

The service at Santoni was great. Seamless process from the online booking, a phone call to confirm and through to arriving on the rooftop in the middle if a gorgeous sunny afternoon. Our waiters were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you.

Food, service, location and venue were all wonderful. There were an abundance of noisy children in the restaurant which we could have done without but we can blame ourselves for booking an early dinner.

Delicious food, beautiful traditional quality Italian. Service we felt like we were an inconvenience and in the way despite having made the booking a week ahead and also when booking we had no idea there was option of rooftop and other areas.

Pizzas were very good. Service maybe had an off day as came across sour and unwelcoming. The restaurant was very noisy, but we were lucky with a window table and some privacy. Not going back anytime soon despite pizzas being excellent.
