Food was great, service a little slow

Was in town to visit family, ate at Santioni's to celebrate a birthday dinner. Got the veal marsala and Caesar salad, both were very tasty. Rolls that came with dinner were very soft and warm. Perhaps it was the fact that we were a larger party, but the service was very slow. Some at our table... read more

I was there just before Christmas and the service was really slow but I think they were just overwhelmed. Pretty good menu and the food was fine but not amazing. I saw a pizza float by and I think I'll get one of those on my next visit. Not a kid place.

I've been to this restaurant numerous times and always had very good food. On my last visit I finally ordered a plain cheese pizza and it was absolutely wonderful. This restaurant has white table, cloths, real napkins and on many nights they have a piano player who provides wonderful background music and makes for a lovely relaxing meal.

I love going to Santioni's because the experience is always top notch. The waitstaff are friendly and helpful, the food is always amazing, and it's usually easy to get seated. We have rarely had to wait more than 15 minutes for a table. Also, they do a fantastic take-out business. It's on my way home from work, and it is... More

I haven't been read my rights and I was denied a lawyer so what I have to say can not be used against me in a court of law. I confess....I'm a repeat offender.

Although the interior hasn't been updated since the day it first opened, the food and garlic rolls are worth sitting among the tacky interior. We've taken many friends and family to eat here, and everyone says it's one of the very best Italian meals they've ever eaten. My favorite is the Pollo Rosa or something like that. It's a pan...

Great pizza. We had take out from here last night. The large pie with everything. Huge pizza, priced around $18. A better deal than any delivery and obviously prepared with love. The only complaint I would have is that I prefer the crust to be crunchier and not doughy. But, everyone else loved it. Overall, this beats Pizza Hut, Pizza... More

We have eaten at Santioni's for over 25 years. When the owner sold the business several years ago the quality of the food deteriorated. Friends of ours who have also eaten at Santioni's for about the same number of years invited us to dinner. They indicated it was at Santioni's. I mentioned the previous bad food experiences we encountered and... More

We have been going to Santioni's for over 25 years. We enjoy their neighborhood feel, homemade meals, their marinara sauce is one of the best I have had. Be sure and meet Tommy, Sisk and Franko. On the weekends, Abagail plays the piano in the background. A very reasonably priced excellent Italian restaurant.

We had dinner here last Sat. night,10/4/13, and expected a traditional Italian dinner. The place is quaint and has a nice décor. We ordered Chicken Cattiatori and Veal Marsala. I also ordered their Chicken Potato and Rice soup. We waited 30 minutes for our main courses to arrive and both meals were disappointing. The veal was tasteless and the only... More
