We always enjoy a visit to Vin Santo. Decided to catch an early Tuesday evening dinner, so the place was fairly quiet to start. Service was quick and helpful. The food was tasty and ample. Pasta is always fresh and top-notch. The place really is a gem.

Very generous portions of high quality food. Service was outstanding, with good explanations of specials and an understanding of how to pair wines with our meals. First time visit, but it will certainly not be our last!

Vin Santo is an excellent restaurant. We have been there several times and each time the food and service are outstanding. This is definitely a restaurant worth visiting and would highly recommend reserving a table. We could not have asked for a better choice for Valentine's Day and our server was superb.

The food was excellent! The service was first rate. Very enjoyable experience. A small place, but to it's advantage. It's pretty quiet, with a nice vibe. Great food, some of the best in Madison. Excellent place for a date night.

Nice little place. Service was very good, portions were on the larger side, bread pudding was huge and very tasty and the prices were fair. Worth giving this place a shot.
My only recommendation is to owner is to add espresso to the menu.

We have never had a 'bad' experience at Vin Santo! The food is always unique and delicious; the service is top notch -- friendly but not 'hovering.' We never feel rushed.

This is a Middleton and Madison mainstay, run by a couple, and never disappoints. Really good food in a comfortable setting, with regulars who appreciate the lack of pretense. Don't take a new date here, necessarily; but certainly take your spouse or longtime mate when you need an evening to remember why you love and value that person. Not to be overlooked: you can hear each other at this restaurant. 'Meet you any time you want at our Italian restaurant.'

I went there for dinner with one other person. We had spaghettini with sausage, which was excellent, and linguini pecorino with chicken, which was mediocre (mostly because it was very bland). The tiramisu was huge and excellent.

What surprised me, was the poor condition of the dining room for a such a highly rated restaurant. The walls had peeling paint, there were multiple stained ceiling tiles, tilted tables, mismatched chairs (not intentional as in some quaint restaurants), etc.

Lovely as always. The mista salad is delightful and our favorite, Ravioli Vin Santo with tomato sauce that included sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts, was generous and delicious. I should mention that the tiramisu is the size of a small automobile (and good)!

Everything was outstanding as usual. Vin Santo is our "go to " special occasion restaurant and has been for roughly 10 years. It's an hour drive for us, but well worth it. The food is spectacular and service is as well.

Our favorite Itailian restaurant in the Madison area. Consistently great food with original menu options. Always a friendly word from the owners and pleasant and efficient service.
The portions are very generous and we always bring some home. The Tiramisu dessert is to die for and large enough for 3-4 people. Nothing like it. Been going here for many years and never had less than the best experience and food.
