Service was great -- very attentive and free samples of wine too. Ambiance is nice, probably good for couples. Value was above average - $15 for my pasta, and $6 for a maker's mark manhattan! I ordered the Linguini al Pecorino, and although the flavor was quite good it was absolutely drenched in olive oil. Drenched as in I drained... More

My husband and I really like this Italian restaurant. My favorite dish is the Linguini al' Frutti di Mare. It is amazing! Lots of shrimp, mussels, scallops and calamari over al dente linguini in a perfectly spiced tomato sauce served piping hot. Every time I've ordered this dish, the seafood and pasta have never been overcooked, and the portion is... More

This is a small, privately owned Italian restaurant with an original menu including some unique items you wouldn't find in any chain restaurant. Dimly lit, this Italian restaurant keeps the ambiance true-to-form with an Italian restaurant. The seating has an intimate feel to it because of the small room size and proximity to other tables. This is not a cut,... More

We took 2 of our daughters and a future son-in-law to Vin Santo for dinner last Saturday evening. The meal was wonderful. When you see a table of five passing around all five dinner selections to give everyone a taste,, you know the food was great. Yes, it's a small place. Yes, it's not fancy. Even so, we love the...

Vin Santo is a class act in an area of diners and bar food. The service is first rate and the food will keep you coming back. There is only a small service bar so be sure to make a reservation and be punctual.

My husband and I first dined at Vin Santo on a beautiful summer evening. We ate outside at one of two tables along the sidewalk. We enjoyed the fresh air, people watching, and running into neighbors. The food and drink was served at an enjoyable, relaxed pace. The food and wine were absolutely delicious. Our waiter was second to none.... More

The service was very good. I got the calamari for an appetizer. I love lasagna but it's hard to find down south. I ordered theirs they tell you it will be 30 to 45 minutes because they make it there. It was worth the wait. We also got the tiramisu best dessert ever.
