Our favorite restaurant in Punta Gorda has closed its doors. We will miss the excellent food and service. Santhino's was our go-to restaurant for happy occasions, holidays, and whenever we wanted a delicious meal. We wish the family well.

Went today only to find the place closed. Very sad since this was one of our favorite places. Was told it closed in the past month. :( Understand the owners have another restaurant up in North Port called Bemaj's Bistro 941-257-8036 will try to check it out

Sadly Santhinos has closed. The restaurant will be greatly missed by the people of Punta Gorda. The space is now vacant. We hope a new restaurant will acquire the space and have a fine dining atmosphere....just like Santhinos.

The restaurant was quiet and the tables well spaced. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. He explained the dishes and offered suggestions on the wine. The food was excellent and generous portions. We stayed mainly with the nightly specials (lobster bisque, salad, BBQ pork ribs), but they have an extensive menu and several good fish choices. The wine list... More
