“Excellent value!! Excellent service!!”
SX Trailers, 29 October 2012
“The staff were great. Every table said to me during the night that they think their waiter was really “looking” after their table. The waiters made each and every guest feel valued and that nothing was too much to ask for. Everyone said the food was amazing and such good sizes. Plenty of the guest commented on the steak being the best they had ever had.”
Sarah-Jane and Keith, 10 October 2012
“We had a wonderful evening on Saturday night. Everyone enjoyed themselves! The food was excellent and the service outstanding. My only complaint is that I did not get any oysters! Please thank the staff on duty and Lisa in particular. Family members were very impressed with the restaurant. I believe we have set a new standard for 21st birthday parties. You are to be congratulated. Again, thank you all for providing the venue and service for a memorable party.”

“Thank you so much for your assistance in coordinating our functions – they were a great success! I’ve heard nothing but positive comments from our team and customers on the room, food and particularly the service. I’d also like you to thank Vishal on my behalf. When our customers turned up an hour early on the first day he was quick and more than happy to set-up the coffee station and make our guests comfortable. We will definitely consider the venue again and hopefully we can use that beautiful room at the Italian Village one day when we don’t need to take machines up the stairs!”
Ainsworth Game Technology Limited, 24 July 2012
“Thank you both and to the team at Dockside Group for making our civil partnership reception so very special last week. We had a fantastic day and that had a lot to do with the venue, friendly staff, great food and views and overall organisation of the reception by your team. We will definitely recommend your location to family and friends. We can’t think of anywhere better. We will always have very fond memories of our experience on the day and all the help you gave in the build-up.”

“Thank you so much for organising our event. Everyone had a wonderful time and LOVED the food. I saw a lot of people taking photos of their dessert and also sharing their food, because everything looked SO good! The waiters were very professional and friendly and accommodated everyone with their requests and dietary requirements.”
Fresenius Kabi Australia Pty Limited, 4 June 2012
“I was very pleased with how Saturday night went. Eliza was very helpful and ensured that the night ran smoothly. The feedback has been great, everyone seemed to really enjoy it. I would certainly recommend The Italian Village for future functions!”

“Food was amazing, everything was perfect.”
Alma and Alex, 13 March 2012
“I just wanted to say a quick thank you for everything you did for us in the lead up to our wedding. Everything just went off perfectly and the staff and organisers on the night were just fantastic. We could not speak more highly of them, especially the gentleman who was looking after us – he always came to find me checking to make sure our drinks were full etc. and also to the event manager on the night whose name I have forgotten – she was great and everything really did run to plan. We have had many people comment on how good the quality and quantity of the food was. Drinks were always flowing which was also appreciated! The venue looked absolutely stunning and all suppliers had no problems. I know none of the above would have happened if you hadn’t have done all the organising, so again, thank you so much for the effort and attention to detail that you went to both in the lead up and on the day. We really will remember it forever and we couldn’t have asked for anything else!”

“Sasha, Lauren and Casey were all great and made our day that little bit more perfect!!! And were fantastic right throughout the whole year of planning our day.”
Belinda & Craig, 18 November 2011
“Could not have asked more from the team, professional, friendly and efficient”.
“Clear, consistent communication from Katie and Renee and their sincere efforts to assist us at every step, made our preparation stress free. Due to inbound flight delays, the commencement of our function and therefore entree had to be delayed by 30 minutes. Sebastian and his team effortlessly and seamlessly amended their agenda to suit ours. Organised, adaptable and fuss free – they were the perfect hosts. .
Fabulous decor, attention to detail and friendly, smiling, service orientated representatives created a great wow factor for our guests when they arrived”.

“The rooms looked amazing! I loved how the venue was intimate, yet not over crowded. The dance floor was never empty! The photo booth constantly had a queue & the guest got to take home a photo strip as a memento & Scott & I got to keep the copy, which was placed in an album that our guests signed. The food and drinks didn’t stop flowing & our guests raved about the service. Kathlin looked after us on the night & was so sweet & attentive!
I had the pleasure of having Lauren & Sasha look after us in planning our wedding at The Italian Village. And a pleasure they were. If you have any questions, they are there to answer them. I designed my own lolly buffet/candy station. I set up the station at home & took a picture so they had an idea of how I wanted it assembled. When we arrived at the reception, I couldn’t believe it looked exactly like the picture! (I don’t know why I sound so surprised, they’re professionals!) Put your faith in them. They know what they are doing & it means you can focus on being the beautiful bride!”
Jessica & Scott
“We would just like to say thank you for looking after our wedding and helping us to have a wonderful evening. The night ran perfectly, without even a minor hiccup. All the staff at the Italian Village were very professional and accommodating. The woman looking after us for the night was very friendly, calm and organised.
So again, thank you for all your help over the past year and we will certainly recommend the Dockside team to any engaged couples”.
Celeste & Andrew
“Alan and I would like to thank you both immensely for helping us organise the best day of our lives. We had a fantastic night and were blown away by the incredible service we were given. Throughout the whole night, we were looked after by Kate and she did an excellent job; please tell her we really appreciate it. Also, the Florence room looked absolutely stunning! It was so much more than what I expected. The food was beautiful, with several people commenting on this too. And the waiter staff were very efficient and courteous. Overall, there was truly nothing I could fault. You all did such an amazing job, something Alan and I will remember for the rest of our lives.
One last thing I would also like to say: the preferred suppliers we used did an amazing job, which I cannot stress enough. Everyone we were in contact with was very friendly, professional and quick to help with our enquiries. Both of you as well as the suppliers made this process of organising my wedding so easy and stress free”.
Ali & Alan
“I would like to thank you all for helping me celebrate my 40th Birthday party on Saturday evening 20th August in the Verona room at the Italian Village.
I had such a wonderful night with my family and friends. Many told me how beautiful and versatile the room was, especially as it had separate areas for each part of the evening- bar area, dining area and a dancing area.
The atmosphere, music, dinner and staff all helped make it a perfect night.
The staff on the evening of the party were happy, friendly and very helpful. They checked with me on several occasions if there was anything I needed and any requests that I did have, were promptly attended to.
I would also like to thank in particular Laura and Colin who both helped me organise- the details earlier on in the lead up to the event. I found them both very professional, accommodating and happy to discuss any changes that I needed to make to the packages offered- so thank you.It was very much appreciated.
So once again thank you all for helping me have such a fantastic 40th Birthday party- I would highly recommend the venue and staff to anyone thinking of having a function”.
