Found this little restaurant (and I do mean little-I think I counted about 10 tables) on a business trip with colleauges and went back on the next trip for more. The food was prepared in the little kitchen that you can see into from the"dining room", and both times it was great. Wait staff was very attentive. If I could... More

While the food here was of good quality the surroundings were very disappointing. A large number of houseflies surrounded our dinners, both alive and dead ones. We asked for a fly swatter only to be told "they'll go away when the weather cools down". Wow, what a bad answer! For a rather pricey restaurant we expected more.

We had dinner here on our way back from a matinee at APT in Spring Green. We were able to get a table easily, since it was a bit early for the dinner crowd. The restaurant is small, with simple decor. The wine list (by the glass, anyway) was not all that good for an Italian specialty place. I would... More

This restaurant was rated as #1 in Middleton. We entered thinking we would have a very good meal. Both of our entrees (the lasagna and the fruitti de mare) were uninspired and without much flavor. The mussels appetizer had pretty good flavor, but nearly one third of the mussels were not open. Overall, a very average meal.

Food was really good. Colleague I was with said it was in her top ten meals ever eaten. Decor is a little old, could use some updating, but who cares when the food was so good! I will definitely be back for my future trips to middleton! !

I knew we would get great food when we walked in and saw the small diner setting. The food definitely lived up to our initial expectations. I swill come again.

This is a real gem. The food was delicious. The service by Alex was excellent, not too intrusive, never ignoring our table either. I am a sudo vegetarian, and there are several things that looked good. If I had to pick an Italian restaurant in/around MIddleton/Verona I would not hesitate to come back here.

Walked in and felt like I was more at a hole in the wall café. Random chairs that must have been purchased at a yard sale or goodwill. We were quickly sat as there were only two other tables occupied. Our server was with us quickly and was very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. Limited beer menu (4) and... More

Over the years, I have consistently enjoyed superb meals at Vin Santo. Wonderful menu variety. Everything prepared to perfection. My favorite Wisconsin Italian restaurant.
