Food is outstanding, this is a wonderful restaurant for special occasions. Love the lasagna and the house "sauce" that you put on the bread. (balsamic base)

We made a reservation at Santos around 7:00 and were very excited about eating there. We arrived before our time and noticed a number of empty tables. There was a large party waiting in front of us and several people walked in behind us. The staff flitted around and came back and said the restaurant was closed. They locked the... More

Who knew that Salisbury would have this wonderful restaurant. The service was above and beyond, from the moment we arrived till we left. Forget the carbs and have the bread, hot and taste. Always a little afraid of ordering seafood not next to the coast, but done to perfection. Also ordered a glass of wine, and it was not just... More

Food was amazing. Homemade bread was served - crusty on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside - balsamic dip was delicious. Salad were fresh and crisp. My daughter and I had a delicious chicken dish with a lemon/wine sauce and finished off with marsala wine. Amazing! Waitress service was very good and attentive. I would recommend this... More

Not many restaurants know how to make... More

The food is outstanding...the service can be slow. It does get crowded so if you're in a hurry make a reservation. Food is consistently good. Italian with a South American flair...delicious! My favorite is the Chicken Francaise, which is a frequent special. The bread is so yummy!

We were in Salisbury for an Antique Car Conference. Two of our members had gotten married since the last meet, so we decided we would have a "Wine Shower" for them. I read the menu for Chef Santos and picked it, as I was impressed with the selections and the prices. When I made the first reservation, it was for... More

Santos is always good. They have a nice selection of everything from steak to seafood to salads, good wine, and a great atmosphere. We never go wrong picking Santos for a meal.
