Santoni, situated in Hawthorn, was born out of a passion for Italian food & culture. We fuse the best seasonal, local ingredients with inspiration from our rich heritage, and a dash of love, to create dishes that even Nonna is envious of.
Santoni was founded in 2007, but really came of age in 2014 when we were visited in a dream by Sant’Antonio Abate, the Patron Saint of pizza. He encouraged us to place our faith in pizza and create a restaurant that truly celebrated the art and joy of Italian cuisine.
And that is exactly what we did, expanding our eatery to three spectacular levels, including a rooftop bar, with views across iconic Glenferrie Road. Inspired, we built our menu on a foundation of fresh ingredients, great flavours and good company, becoming a destination for all those seeking an authentic taste of Italia.
La mia casa è la tua casa. No matter the time of day or night, you are always welcome at Santoni. If you’re ready to eat, we’re ready to create a feast that will make you feel like a part of la famiglia.
