We met 2 other couples out for dinner on Saturday November 12th for a post wedding celebration. We have frequented this restaurant many previous times. We started with the smoked salmon crostini and a fresh basket of their bread. I could have just kept eating plates of the crostini! They had a special seafood ravioli in a pesto/white wine sauce...

My husband and I decided to take my mother-in-law here for her birthday dinner. She had never been. We shared a bottle of the house Sangiovese. It was a great match with our pasta. Our waiter was very friendly and patient as we struggled to pick our dinners. There were so many good choices! Dinner came with bread and dipping... More

We began our dinner with the house appetizer special of crostini with smoked salmon with cream cheese. The salmon had a very fresh, tasty profile. Bread was offered and the wait person (Leslie) was attentive and very accommodating. We split the Jumbo Shrimp Carciofi plate with spinach fettucine, garlic and olive oil. Shrimp were flavorful and cooked perfectly. The wine... More

My dinner here was very good. The menu has interesting choices. The entree I had was loaded with pancetta in a spicy sauce, over fresh spinach fettuccine, & was really flavorful. The waitress was great and her suggestions were helpful. Would definitely go here again.

Really like this place. The owners are very attentive, service is always good. Always have the calamari appetizer and always love it. Have eaten here many times and always enjoy it.

The service here is very good, but that is all! The food is really awful. Both of our pasta dishes were almost inedible. The pasta was overcooked to the point of gooeyness. The salad greens were wilted. The worst, though, was the slices of chicken breast. They were crunchy!! I don't know if it was full of gristle or what;... More

The best thing about the dinner was the dessert. The chocolate cheesecake It was a delicious rich large piece. I rarely order dessert, but I am really glad I ordered this.

Went for a couples dinner, was a great atmosphere for it. Small, quaint restaurant with amazing pasta dishes. Everyone in our group had a different but equally amazing pasta dish.

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
