As a businessman doing business in China, food is always a problem when going to small/midsize cities like Shantou. But Il Santo is a place that I'm always happy to go back to over and over again when I come to Shantou. The atmosphere inside makes you forget you are in an industrial town and gives you a feeling you are in a bar/restaurant at home. The owners are always friendly and greet you with good service and small talk. Food is delicious and consist mostly on the Italian cousin including Pizzas, pastas and beef. At later hours the place gets more of a bar atmosphere with a projector showing live concerts on a large size screen, trendy vibes and large variety of alcohol drinks. Prices are less than equal places in Hong Kong and Guangzhou and gives you a feeling of home away from home. If you are a foreigner coming to Shantou, this place is not to be missed.
