“Wonderful neighborhood find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

We're been there twice in the last month. Both times the food, service and ambiance have been excellent. Dishes are made to order and with fresh ingredients. Nice selection on the menu of both meat/fish dishes and pasta dishes. The Italian flair is upscale in terms of cooking and the intimately small dining room is perfect for a wonderful evening of food. BYOB and you are all set.

“Delicious Intimate Italian BYOB Nestled in Bethlehem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

My husband, friend and I have been to this off the beaten path intimate restaurant two times. I have specific dietary issues so going out to eat is a big deal for me, and sometimes disappointing - but not here. Although there are several wonderful, authentic fresh pasta dishes for my husband and friend to enjoy, the chef is very accommodating and skilled at making a dish that is delicious and suitable for my gluten and lactose intolerances and allergies to tomatoes. The last time I dined here, I had a terrific steak with a heaping mound of sauteed arugula topped with pecorino romano cheese. It was perfect! The server was friendly and attentive. You can bring your own wine to drink and all the meals are served with scrumptious crusty Italian bread for those who can still eat wheat. The atmosphere is very homey and pleasant as though you are dining in an very nice Italian family's home.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

Yeah yeah yeah enough about your stupid mama Nina crap! If you want real Italian food that is fresh go here because if you go to mama Nina you do not know what fresh food tastes like . And unlike Niño chef santo doesnt send his friends to give he good reviews and rate him well. Santo is authentic Italian not trashy italian
