The atmosphere and decor are relaxing and inviting. We were instantly greeted by the owner. The temperature outside was 93 degrees so we appreciated the cool air conditioning that was at just the right temperature to enjoy our delicious meals. We enjoyed two wines from the extensive wine menu served in nice stemware at the correct temperature. The live guitar music complimented our first courses of soup and salad. The small caesar featured croutons made in-house and a true traditional dressing. For our main course we enjoyed the Walleye (pan fried with a delicious topping that included pancetta) with mashed potatoes and spaghetti with three meatballs from the small plate section of the menu. Our service was very professional. We will return! Desserts looked wonderful, so we will try them on our next visit.

Great food & wine! Local owner and chief and he is awesome. He's the " Chief" that will make it to your table to make sure your food and spirits are to your liking.

the venue that they were in was so uncomfortable - that it diminished the entire culinary experience. The food is above average to very good and the value the same - but a better atmosphere is desired and required for a more pleasant and recommendable dining experience.

My wife and I stopped in Trattoria Dal Santo the night of the Christmas Tree Lighting, and were not disappointed. Our server was great, and provided descriptions of the nightly food and wine specials, and timed her stops by our table perfectly.

The chef does a great job in using traditional Italian ingredients in creative ways. We were in a small plates mood, so instead of entrees, we picked three appetizers to share and enjoyed some wine and Proscecco. Both the stuffed mushroom appetizer and the cheese pesto appetizer were great, with generous servings. The nightly special appetizer was mussels sauteed in wine, butter and garlic and caramelized onions and served with a really good sourdough baguette. Again, really generous serving (probably 2 dozen mussels) for a very reasonable price. For 3 glasses of wine, and three appetizers, our tab with tip barely edged over $50. For the creativity, portions and quality of ingredients, this is a great little gem in the heart of Sturgeon Bay.
