Amazing yuca appetizer and eggplant parmigiano

Delicious and wonderful service, vegetarian friendly. Relaxing atmosphere. Will return. Had been a peruvian restaurant in the past now more standard seafood and itilian style with a touch of peruvian dishes. Ask for the yuca a la huanciana appetizer

We ate there with friends recently. My wife had the salmon which she enjoyed and I had the shrimp special which was very good. I had the lobster bisque which also was good. It would have been nice if the meal was served with a small salad but alas that was extra. Our friends enjoyed their meals also. The restaurant... More

My husband and I had a Groupon for Santhino's and decided that we'd try it out last night. (I shouldn't post this review because people will start coming in droves, but if something is really good, everyone should know.) First off, a nice young man greeted us when we came through the door. Brandon came over when we were seated... More

We've been wintering in Punta Gorda for several years but, for whatever reason, had never been here. Well, we finally came and will be back. Two of our group had ribs which were as advertised - fall off the bone tender, served with a cherry sauce. Delicious! Another in the group had shrimp scampi and thought it was very good.... More

Went for lunch with friends, never been there before. Read many good reviews and was not disappointed. Welcomed as we came in, served very quickly, food was excellent and reasonably priced. When we left the lady in charge came running outside to thank us as she was busy with another customer when we were leaving.

We went there tonight without a reservation, and we were lucky to get a table. Party of two at 7pm. The food was amazingly good quality and perfectly prepared. The prices are very modest. Dinner for two with 2 lobster bisque, two entrees, one high end glass of white wine and a cocktail came to $91 after giving a 20%... More

We had dinner at Santhinos yesterday an had a wonderful time. The food was well prepared and the service was attentive but unintrusive. Quiet and intimate. A good place for friends to get together or a romantic dinner for 2. Highly recommended.

The menu is pricey if looking at the specials.....however veal and chicken dishes are on par with any up scale restaurant. We had one veal and one chicken dish.....both excellent as was the service and setting. Probably the best restaurant I've eaten at in Punta Gorda!

I have been wishing I could get to this restaurant for a long time and tonight was the opportunity. My friend and I were greeted graciously and seated at a table that we asked for away from the door. (the night was chilly). Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the two specials and made them sound very delicious and very... More
