Decent pizza and pleasant outdoor setting

We stopped here for a pizza lunch and were not disappointed, though not overwhelmed. It seemed that every family with small children living in the neighborhood chose to eat here in the late afternoon. Wine by the glass was good, though not extra-generous on the pour, and the pizza was good enough... read more

Very good tasty and fresh pizza. My favourite is the Capriciosa. The Spaghetti a la Putanesca is not on the menu but available, when you ask. That is always a proxy for quality.

Nice setting and friendly staff but the food is less than average. Pizza is oily and pasta dry. Music very loud.

I have eaten here a few time. It has inviting outdoor seating and a great location in Polanco. My favorite of their menu is their pasta dishes. The also have a very good fried calamari. Pizzas are thin fresh crust with a decent sauce, but could use a bit more toppings. I agree with other reviews that have complained about... More

Enjoyed fresh gnocchi on sidewalk cafe restaurant! Our son ordered a thin crush pizza. We shared calamari, and smoked salmon. All was delicious! Service was excellent on this safe, quiet street. It is a lovely neighborhood to discover. Waiters could speak English.

This restaurant has a very mixed set of reviews, so it comes down to expectation. We wanted somewhere that offered a relaxing and informal dining environment, excellent food, and friendly and attentive (but unintrusive) service - we found it all here at Santino's, and it beat other more upmarket Polanco establisments hands down. It was also excellent value. On the... More

If you want a casual dinner in the middle of the nicest street in Mexico this is the perfect place. It's cheap if you compare with other italians, but the pizzas are really good, the salads are big, and the martinis are excellent!

Right in the fancy neighborhood of Polanco, this restaurant looks like a modern trattoria and people who work do their best to give a good service. But.... as soon as you enter the very dark restaurant the music is at a unbearable volume, and it makes impossible to keep a conversation on the table. However, the really nasty part of... More

This is the second time we have been to the restaurant. The first time we were on the patio and had okay meals and good service. The second time round we were forced to eat inside due to all the smokers on the patio. Playing on big screen TVs throughout the restaurant was ""The Godfather 3"; we were forced to... More
