Please do not take your own wine otherwise you will be glared at by the owner! I was reluctant to return after visiting their original premises at Belmont South and thought it was over priced then. But returned on a friends advice. As soon as...More

Ate there over the weekend. The food was fresh and the menu comprehensive. Though thought the dishes were more modern fusion than traditional italian. Cooked well but not outstanding as the reviews led me to believe.

We dined here on a Tuesday evening and we couldn't fault the food. Lots to choose from the menu and also the specials board. Will definitely be back. Well done!

Actually my wife took me out to dinner recently to Salinas. We love Italian food and Salinas did not disappoint. The food was great, service top quality, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner together.

Staff friendly but food very ordinary. Over priced for quality of food. My husband had the prawn pot which was a very small serve and ordinary flavours. Definitely not worth over $30. My seafood marinara was a big serve but not much seafood and much...More

In my opinion Salina Restaurant would be the about best eatery we have this side of the Lake and maybe the other side too. I have’t had anything less than an excellent experience here and it’s our “go to” for special occasions or when we...More
