My husband and I spent our first New Year's Eve in Punta Gorda this year and we couldn't think of a better place to spend it with good friends than Santhino's. We've had many a wonderful meal here. The atmosphere is intimate and charming, and the staff is more than accommodating. Even though we changed the count for our table... More

Surprise, surprise , the table my friend ordered, weeks ago, was given away. To much to do. Bad luck. The table we got was just finished. We got bread. We looked around, everybody had a little dish for his bread, we don't. So we had the crumbs on the table. The wine opener with the cork he put on the... More

Two of us went to Santhinos to try it out. We each had a drink and the lobster bisque with the portabella mushroom appetizer. . We both ordered the pork chop special, and the veggies were great, but the pork chop were very tough. Service was good, but the waiter seemed unconcerned that our pork chop was tough. Would have...

Thank you waterhawk for your review and I apologize you felt that way about the meal. I happened to be your server that night and when asked about your meal you said everything was great, pork chop was a little tough but very tasty. I also asked if you'd like to switch up your meal. We want to make sure... More

I First Dined here when the Previous Peruvian Owners Established this Restaurant in '04 after Hurricane Charley. They started a Tradition of Fine Food & the New Owners have carried on that Tradition. They are conveniently located in the Cross Trail Shopping Plaza between the Medicine Shoppe & the Bicycle Shop. Don't let the Cross St address throw you off,... More

We have eaten here for years and it never fails to leave us looking forward to the next time. If we lived down here, this would be our regular date night restaurant! The food is just wonderful and we feel very reasonably priced. Nice decor and smiling faces always. We've never had a problem with service, even with larger parties.... More

Have visited this restaurant previously using a restaurant.com certificate for lunch and was told it can only be used for dinner! The only stipulation on the certificate was to spend $30. which we would easily have complied with. Ate lunch there anyways because the food is good even though overpriced. Went back to restaurant.com and got credit for my certificate.
