“Very good food, service needs improvement!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

We arrived by 3:30 pm, and the place was nearly empty. It took to them around 15 min to bring beverages. However, the experience improved considerably as time passed. We ended up eating a delicious pizza and very nice cajeta creppes!

Congratulations to the chef!! But guys, you need a new manager. Setvice is just average, not corresponding to the eating experience.

So, when you come to this place, bring all of your patience with you! Will be worthy!

“The best option around for late dinning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Once you tire of eating tacos and hotel room service late at night there are not many open options around that do not entail fried foods. But Santino offers Italian cuisine the Uruguay style. Brick oven pizza, pastas and drinks. The food is not the best but it's a good option. Portions are regular size. Food is freshly prepared si they will cater to special requests

“Grossly overcharged for wine”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

I had three glasses of red wine with lasagne. The reason I had three glasses was, the glasses we're very full. When the cheque arrived it was for M$425; $125 for the lasagne, and $100 (one hundred pesos, or about US$8) for each glass of wine.

The lasagne wasn't very good, either. Avoid this place like the plague.
