We had a range of dishes. None of them were seasoned adequately. The seafood pasta lacked sauce. The yamba seafood plate was bland and really didn't use much local seafood...probably only the prawns were local. We were given a discount. When we went to pay, the waitress continued her conversation with another staff member without acknowledging us. She then asked... More

Management response:

Hi Zane Thanks for joining us last night, and sorry that the seafood spaghetti wasn’t what you are used to. It's prepared the authentic Italian way, which does not have “sauce”. We understand that you haven't had it that way in the past, but if you go to Southern Italy, now you'll know what to expect. The seafood is local... More

We had dinner there last night after going to the pacific hotel and finding it too busy. We were glad we did! The pizza was cooked in a Woodfired oven and came out very fast. All the staff were extremely friendly and didn't mind our little girl running around. Pizza was up there with some of the best I've had.... More

I review this place every year because its where we eat the most while on our annual holidays in Yamba. I was sorry to see the brothers go....they built a fantastic business. The new owner Fab decided to not tinker with the menu too much and it has paid off. The food is still wonderful with that lovely fresh quality.... More

We dined here Easter Sunday 2017. 4 adults and three children. It is the most beautiful authentic Italian. Absolutely delicious. Pasta and pizza all delicious. Great wine and service as well. We all highly recommend Italian On the Hill.

Had promise but missed the mark. Friendly staff but a restaurant is also about the food which was disappointing.

We are visiting from Brisbane and have been cooking our own meals to save a bit of money. We decided to have one night out and our teenage kids chose Italian. It certainly didn't disappoint. The pizzas were fantastic and wood fired and the pasta was home made. We chatted with one of the staff - Jennifer - and she... More

Had a lovely meal with our young family here. The staff were nice, the food especially the pizza was fantastic. Wood fired. The warm bowl of olives were amazing.

First visit since the new owners have taken over, was pleasantly surprised the food was still excellent. I had the gnocchi which was fresh and hand made, how it should be. Will still visit here every time I come to Yamba. Only 4 stars as 5 doesn't make them try for a higher level.

New owners who are very nice and will definitely make a go of this place. Needs a bit of organising which no doubt will come with time. Food pretty good. Staff doing a bit of running around though and hard to get hold of once the food was served. Noisy place inside when big parties so bear in mind if... More
