Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Reviewed 12 March 2022 via mobile

Set on the hilltop on the southern end of Belmont’s main shopping street the restaurant is only open for dinner most nights so there is a sense of exclusivity in the experience but the restaurant is very welcoming to all clientele. You do have to...be double vaxxed so be aware. Inside it is a maze of rooms which provides an intimate atmosphere. If you go through to what was once the back yard a number of gazebos create the feeling of rooms amid the greenery and continue the intimate feel. The menu is quite broad offering pasta, pizza, a la carte and blackboard specials. Gluten free is catered for. The wine list includes a selection of quality reds and whites; by the glass or bottle. Beers include a number of Italian brews, some I’d never heard of, and a few Aussie brands. Cocktails are also catered for. The staff are excellent. Everyone that came to our table brought efficiency, courtesy, knowledge and a warm friendly demeanour. The food was excellent and the presentation was delightful. We ate from both the a la carte and the specials menu and ended the night with dessert. The cannelloni stuffed with a fig and ricotta ‘cream’ dressed with a salted caramel sauce was the best dessert that I have eaten anywhere ever.More

With the kitchen being painted we headed out to Salina's. Such a wonderful surprise in Belmont with real Italian food (and booze) and super tasty. Neither of us intended to have desert, but we relented and they were awesome.

Stopped in with the family after driving all day. Food came out quickly and was tasty. Service was attentive and friendly. Parking was a bit hard, but ended up parking in the shopping centre park just a short walk away. Recommended if you are coming...through.More

This place is dog friendly and service is great. We had the bruschetta, smoked salmon pizza and orecchiette pasta - pizza dough is freshly made in-house and delicious. It’s also hard to find a place that cooks orecchiette well but Salina’s definitely do. Will be...back for more!More

The food is just amazing. And the restaurant itself is charming as well; we were a party of ten and sat in the outside area, which was beautiful with fairy lights around. The owners came out to check on us and couldn’t be more lovely....We are a bunch of Italians and ‘foodies’ and enjoyed every bite. We will definitely be back- many times!More

What a great find in Belmont! Salina offers classic Italian dishes, freshly cooked with smiling service. I especially enjoyed the linguine - and the fresh oysters were so good I nearly ordered six more! This restaurant is a must if you are near Swansea.

Surprisingly great pizza, the pizza bases are light & crispy, & toppings are perfect. Friendly service - this place really reminds mw of Italy.

The food here is average (RSL style and standard) BUT the clientele is regular and plentiful. It must be the staff (who are very good) that brings them in.
