“Santini nice and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

While the restaurant in Oakton isn't as large as the one in Chantilly, it still has the bar and TV that makes enjoying their food a great casual experience. Reasonable price and comfortable place for a date or group event.

“Highly rated Pizza had us looking for a suggestion box”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We like Pizza so when we were in Oakton, we were directed to Santini's NY Style Deli as "the place to go." We ordered two large thin crust pizza's with combinations of half Italian sausage, a mix of vegetables, plain, and pepperoni-for take out. When we got back to where we were staying and began consuming our purchases, we immediately discovered that, while the pizza was good, the crust and contents were under cooked and a little doughy. This made the whole pizza seem like it should have been left in the oven for another 5 minutes or so or, the heat was not high enough to bake the crust and fully cook the contents.

The good news was that, the left overs were saved until the next day, at which time, re-heating them in the over, directly on the grates at 450 degrees, completed the crust and contents, yielding delicious left overs.

If we were to go back there, we certainly would have looked for a suggestion box to suggest the cooks sampled their pizzas, or checked the bottoms of the pizzas before boxing them up, to ensure they were completely cooked. Good flavor but not enough attention to completing the cooking.

“Pizza is good, Gyro is great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

Santini's is a great place to grab a quick bite on 123. The pizza is good, but the chicken gyro is truly delicious. Quick, good service and cheap.

“Just Soso”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The pizza is great. The sub is way too salty. A little bit overpriced everything. The service is not good enough, well maybe that's the new york style service.

“Terrible customer service-the worst”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Rude employees, dry food. What else is there to say?
I live in the area and if we are snowed out and that was the only place open I would walk another mile just so they wouldn't get my business. I was happy going in, unhappy leaving and they didn't care.
