One of our favorite restaurants!

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... read more

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.

We have eaten at Vin Santo numerous times over the last few years. Ate there again tonight. It is always excellent. It's a fairly small restaurant with maybe 15 tables. Focus on Italian food, lots of interesting items on the menu. They always make you feel very welcome. Very good service, outstanding food and reasonable prices ... what else could... More

I was so excited to see that Vin Santo's had a gluten free menu! I had not been here for at least 5 or more years. We ordered a wonderful bottle of house Barbado red wine. The table enjoyed the bread and calamari appetizer. This calamari appetizer was gluten free. I ordered the soup which is always gluten free. Tonight... More

Made reservations on Open Table for 9:00 pm. We were greeted promptly by the owner and seated at our table. Service was prompt and friendly. At the beginning I felt that service was rushed a bit with as we barely sat down and looked at the menu. We ordered the the shrimp and crostini app. It was the feature app... More

Dined here with a group of colleagues and everyone loved their meal. The menu is very original and I had a hard time choosing. I settled on the special, which was a mushroom ravioli, tomato and artichoke soup and the Caprese salad, which was so huge we all shared. Our group also shared 2 desserts, a bread pudding and tiramisu.... More

What a little gem!! Clarissa, one of the owners, greets you at the door. (The other owner, Clarissa's husband, is cooking.) There is a cozy bar and maybe 20 tables, I'd estimate. We go to Madison/Middleton once a year for the National Women's Music Festival. Vin Santo is now one of our MUST DO places. This month we had the... More
