Restaurant Santino is tucked away in the corner of a lively laneway in central Wollongong.
Our Italian style bistro has a wonderfully classic feel, creating an ambiance fit for a dirty martini and a number from Nina Simone. Walls are adorned with art deco prints which set off this incredibly designed, chic space. Kids Menu Available.
Our team of talented chefs takes pride in using only the freshest ingredients and creating dishes that are both traditional and contemporary. We make our fresh pasta daily, on a rotating menu so you can always expect something new and exciting.
At Restaurant Santino, we understand that a great meal deserves an equally great wine pairing. That’s why we have a cellar stocked with an impressive selection of wines from around the world. Whether you’re a seasoned wine enthusiast or just discovering the joys of wine, our team is here to help you find the perfect bottle to complement your meal.
