We stumbled into Vin Santo out of the rain, hungry, with a six- and one-year-old in tow. It was immediatley apparent that we were not the target audience for the restaurant, but we are so happy we came. The decor is a bit like being in someone's house. The owner is also the hostess and sometimes bartender, her husband is... More

We met a friend here for dinner. We started out with the bruschetta. The toast was so crisp that it was hard to bite into. My husband had a spinach ravioli and I had a dish with shrimp and pasta. Sorry that I can't remember the names of the entrees. Both were good, but not outstanding. Would have liked more... More

Went with my husband for our 27th anniversary dinner. We each had a pasta dinner. Mine was campenelli pasta with chicken, shrimp and spicy Italian sausage. My husband's was shrimp scampi type pasta with a creme base. The portions were huge! In retrospect, I would share a dish had I known. Unfortunately, there were no beef options on the menu,... More

This is a small restaurant owned and managed by a husband and wife team. She is a delightful hostess and he is in the kitchen preparing the meals. Many great options but I choose to get two and share the Italian Sausage and the Eggplant. Many people I know agree that the Bread Pudding is the finest they have ever... More

This was the perfect place for a good meal after a long day of touring the campus. The service was fast. The food was hearty, abundant and delicious! We even picked up a couple desserts to go, because we were too full to eat them right away. They were also outstanding! We would definitely go again!

Family of six to celebrate graduation. Excellent service by waiter, Good recommendations. Mussels were outstandingly delicious and plump. Everyone enjoyed there selections. My linguini Fruti de Mare was one of the best I have ever had, the calamari was great. The Chianti wine was very good. A truly enjoyable time.

We were visiting family in Middleton and went to Vin Santo on the last evening of our visit. Vin Santo is a rare find; great service, good prices and EXCELLENT food. I highly recommend the caesar salad and the Chicken Marsala. We will definitely return on our next trip to Wisconsin.

The hostess and wait person were both very good, very professional and attentive. That was the only good part about our first and last visit to Vin Santo. We ordered the calamari appetizer, which was not good. The sauce was very overpowering and far too heavy for calamari. My husband ordered the lasagna special with sausage. The sausage was link...

I love Vin Santo's clean and from scratch Italian dishes. It might be too gourmet for my husband's palette, but the chef is really good, the atmosphere is very relaxed.

We moved from Madison WI to Mesa AZ four years ago. We miss Vin Santo! We try to stop in when we get back to WI. It is nice to know that the quality of their food and service has never faltered! Last night we had another marvelous meal, great wine and cocktails and friendly, efficient service! The ravioli special... More
