Cafe Sabatinis has replaced Penola Station and was only reopened for 2-3 weeks at the time of our visit. Food quality was very good but needs a few tweaks, service is still learning but enthusiastic. Will be well supported locally once it has settled a...More

Not a busy night, just after Christmas. Only the waitress and the chef, but the service was great and the steak was fantastic, cooked just the way I like it. Great work, we will call in next time we travel through Penola. Ken & Janice

We went to the restaurant for dinner with my partner and we were very happy with the food. They have a well balanced menu and support the local wines. Absolutely satisfied and glad to recommend it to the visitors of the region.
