BELLA!

Over the years, I have consistently enjoyed superb meals at Vin Santo. Wonderful menu variety. Everything prepared to perfection. My favorite Wisconsin Italian restaurant.

Walked in and felt like I was more at a hole in the wall café. Random chairs that must have been purchased at a yard sale or goodwill. We were quickly sat as there were only two other tables occupied. Our server was with us quickly and was very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. Limited beer menu (4) and... More

So grateful for this gem in Middleton. The food is outstanding - the fungi salad, zuppa di pesche, and of course, the tiramisu are outstanding. We've traveled extensively in Italy and this place is the real deal. The service is outstanding with a perfect concoction of the grace and thoughtfulness of fine dining mixed with the personal touch and warmth... More

Vin Santo was very accommodating for a group of 7 with a 16 month old grandson. The food was wonderful and the wait staff was very patient with our little one. They even took time out of their busy jobs to entertain him. It was a very pleasant experience at a nice hometown restaurant.

This is one of our top go-to restaurants in this area. Even before our latest experience here, we loved tit. Small, unfussy but romantic atmosphere, and the owners and staff are genuinely friendly. It's one of those places where I don't explore the menu as much as I should because there are one or two things that are so great... More

Vin Santo is one of our family's favorite restaurants in the whole world. It is a comfortable environment that is cozy. The pasta dishes, particularly the homemade ravioli, is exquisite. Their salads are wonderful as well and should be shared given their size. The owners are great folks as are the staff. (She works the front of the house; He... More

A small cozy and intimate Italian restaurant in Downtown Middleton. One of our favorite places to go for a special celebration. Excellent food. We love their butternut squash soup and tiramisu.

Atmosphere is quaint - a small restaurant (12ish tables) with mismatched tables and chairs. Owner and waitstaff are always attentive and friendly. Tables can be a bit close together, but overall, the intimate atmosphere is cozy and familial. Food is also great. I can't say I've explored the menu too much as I always get the same dish - Ravioli... More
