I worked about a block away for years and this was a go-to place for lunch with co-workers. No matter how tough of a day I was having, Vino Santo made me feel better. They have a warm chicken salad that is super healthy AND flavorful. It was a frequent choice. The gnocchi is pure heaven...be sure to order a... More

4 of us arrived on time....the reservation was made several weeks ago. The individual at the reception area ignored us for at least 5 minutes while he spoke to a waiter. Eventually, I was forced to ask him if he planned to seat us. He pointed, annoyingly, at a table in the rear bordering the kitchen and bar. I asked... More

My family of two parents and two college aged daughter's went to this restaurant on a Sunday night right after the Nutcracker at the Fox Theatre. Admittedly, we arrived an hour early for our reservation because it was pouring rain outside. But even after sitting there for an hour and a half, only one other table of two people showed... More

Just an average Italian restaurant. Bland food. Was charged fifty cents when we told them we wanted to share a salad. Prices reasonable, but there must be something better nearby.

I planned the annual Christmas office party and chose Vino Santo as the venue. I'd attended another party here and thought the food was very good and atmosophere was lovely. Vino Santo exceeded my expectations !! The service was exceptional and the food (the menu consisted of the appetizer sampler and guests chose from the stuffed chicken, petrale sole, pasta... More

Since I work very close by, this is a great place for taking business clients for a great lunch meeting. As a diabetic, the seafood salad is an excellent choice for me and I use the garlic and olive oil served with the bread as the salad dressing - fantastic.

I was taken here on an interview lunch recently. They were not terribly busy and the servers were fairly attentive. The food was great - I think everybody enjoyed their dishes except for the seafood salad which reportedly needed some more dressing, but I loved my pappardelle. I would recommend this for a good business lunch - good atmosphere amenable... More

This is one of my family's favorite places to eat. We have never had a bad meal here. The service has always been great. We usually go for special occasions due to the cost. But trust me the food is worth the price. Our favorites are the Veal Oscar, the lobster ravioli, veal picatta, stuffed sole (special) ... I could... More
