Hobart's Don Camillo is situated in the early stages of Sandy Bay, roughly half way between the CBD and Wrest Point Hotel-Casino and is about a five minute drive from the CBD. In my estimation, this restaurant has been around (and in the same location) for the best part of 50 years and that being the case, they're obviously doing more than a few things right. We dined recently with a relatively large group (8) and received good service and generally good food and wine with a good, if somewhat noisy, atmosphere. I say generally good food because the chicken breast went the same way as many chicken breasts before it - too dry. But that aside, comments ranged from "good" to "great" with the highlights being the pasta (sensational gnocchi) and the steak ("Filletto" ordered medium-rare and delivered exactly as ordered). Another stand-out dish was the mushroom bruschetta which proved to be one of those dishes which everyone should experience at least once in their life. All in all, a very good experience, well worth revisiting in the future.

We were looking forward to a great meal at Don Camillo's, but sadly we left disappointed. Located in the heart of Sandy Bay (a 5 minute taxi ride from the city centre) Don Camillo's is an Italian Restaurant that's been around for a number of years.

Entrees were fine (bread, olives) however the main meals just weren't up to standard. I ordered the eye fillet medium-well; however it was lucky to be medium. And my husband's was the same. The remaining diners in our party felt let down with a sour salad on the veal dish. Desserts were fine and wine was reasonably priced.

Too many other fantastic restaurants in Hobart to put up with mediocre meals. Maybe it was just an off night given the other reviews but we won't be going back to find out.

Excellent food and service just out of the CBD. Waiters were very professional in their food and wine knowledge.

Having been to Italy many times, it is one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to (if not the best!)
Delicious food, reasonably priced and great service.
Highly recommend the gnocchi with lamb ragu- YUM!
