An exceptional meal in a lovely setting! We sat on a sidewalk lined with restaurants in lively downtown Middleton, enjoying our handmade pasta dishes. All three of our meals were outstanding.

Vin Santo has a wonderful intimate and romantic atmosphere with quiet Italian background music. The food and service are always top flight. We go there about once a month, it is by far our favorite Italian restaurant. The Ravioli Vin Santo, Mista salad, Lasagna and Tiramasu are the best I've had anywhere in the world.

Good food and service. Very safe outside.

A couple strange things that I've never seen fine dining Italian
1. tiramisu was like a cream pie, but it was good
2. no espresso, and
3. limoncello was served in wine glasses. Maybe that's because we were outside.

Gluten-free menu online had eggplant. Actual menu did not, leaving only 2 of the 3 gluten-free options.

Limited menu but food selections were varied. Delicious food and very reasonably priced. They aren't stingy with the seafood in entrees which is a pleasant surprise. We tried all the appetizers except soup and they were excellent.

The owner and servers were very accommodating and not intrusive.

Very much appreciate they are following the COVID guidelines-we would've left otherwise.

Will definitely return and can't wait for the full menu!

Vin Santo is a wonderful treasure in downtown Middleton. The atmosphere and service is exceptional. The lasagna, ravioli, Misto salad, and Tiramasu are the best I’ve had anywhere, including two trips to Italy. We are so lucky to have them, I urge anyone who loves Italian food to support them during the pandemic.

It was so wonderful to return to Vin Santo. I love the food and the atmosphere. The service is outstanding. I had been craving the Ravioli Vin Santo and the Mista salad for months now. I’m so happy they are back.

The pasta was very good, however I had the fettuccine pasta and it was soaked in oil, it was not creamy. Best Tiramisu I’ve ever had!!

Our favorite place for Italian food. We brought friends with us who had never dined here and no surprise, they were very impressed. The food is always delicious. I'm a huge fan of the eggplant and no dinner is complete without a piece of tiramisu - one slice serves four OOTW.

Lovely meal with good presentation. Friendly, attentive server. Nice setting for conversation; a refreshing change from many of the more common noisy venues that seem to equate high volume background noise with having a good time.

Vin Santo has been around for a while, and the decor shows. We sat under some stained ceiling tiles. It needs to be redone inside, I was hoping the food was going to blow me away, but it was just okay.

Not our first visit, but each time has been a pleasant experience. Greeting us as we came in, we were quickly ushered to our table and even tho' they were extremely busy, our waitstaff was there with water and drink requests. Starting with our appetizer of salmon tartar on cream cheese brioche, to our caesar salad and then to our entrees of Scampi Diavollo and Portabella Ravioli, we enjoyed each. No room for dessert, but we wished they would have a lighter fare to that course such as gelato. What they had was fairly heavy but no doubt delicious.

The service was fantastic. We got the the calamari appetizer and the sauce was amazing. The main course was perfect and it was a huge portion. If you go, you have the get the bread pudding. It’s a must have. On top of the great food, our waiter was awesome. He was so quick and attentive. Great place!

Went to Vin Santo with my hubby for an early New Years Eve dinner. We both had the ravioli and shared a salad. Service was impeccable and was greeted by the owner. Got points for open table too. A favorite place for us!

Four of us went on a Saturday night. Immediately greeted at the door and sat right away. Our server was very attentive to us throughout the evening. She went over the specials with us and gave suggestions when we couldn't decide. The food was incredible and well worth every penny spent. The lasagna special was huge and was a great second meal the next day and just as good as the first day. We will be back for sure!
