The best in Madison. Always.
Excellent lasagna Caesar salad and salmon appetizer
Intimate seating. Small but good quality wine list. Delicious unbreaded calamari in a mildly spicy red sauce. All pasta homemade and cooked al dente. Nice variety of pasta dishes that do NOT all taste the same. Best tiramisu in town! Attentive service. Owner always checks on diner’s satisfaction.
Best Italian in Dane Co.
Besides excellent food, service and atmosphere Vin Santo owner keeps records of your favorite wines and food choices. A great place to take my granddAughter got GF options
Very good Italian food, nice wine list, pleasant atmosphere, kind of expensive but not surprisingly so. My only real quibble is the humongous portion sizes; I feel a little daunted when my seafood (or whatever I may have ordered) has to share a plate with a couple of pounds of pasta. I know I can take the leftovers home, but we really didn't come to Vin Santo for tomorrow's lunch. Still, we enjoyed ourselves, as we always do.
Food was very good! The Bread Pudding was ridiculous, a must have!!
Chef was willing to do a combination of ingredients from two menu items for me. Delicious results. Bread, salad, pastas, and dessert were all remarkable - and we came home with almost as much food as we ate at the restaurant! Locally owned. Capable staff gives you just enough attention. We'll go back!
Everything was great! Waiter was very knowledgeable. Will come again when in the area.
Outstanding spaghetti salsiccia and lasagna. Good wine list. Excellent service. Nice ambience.
First time at Vin Santo and it won't be my last! I was very pleasantly surprised. Both quality and quantity of food were amazing. This may become a favorite of mine.
Great, small family run business, with consistently excellent food, and huge portions
Perfection! Delicious, food! Large servings, you won’t go home hungry and you most likely will be taking leftovers home with you. Our server, Tim, was fantastic. He was very pleasant, fun, very knowledgeable about the menu, and patient with our questions. All 4 of us agreed that the food and the service were impeccable!
The lasagna was disappointing. To many sausage slices competing with undercooked noodles (not even al dente). Please revert to tradition.
The staff was wonderful. The food as always good. Looking forward to coming again soon.
We're always greeted warmly at the door. The food is fantastic, fresh, and authentic. It is hard to choose from the menu when the specials are so thoughtfully designed.
' celebrated my husband's birthday here a few nights ago. The food, as usual, was outstanding. We cannot say enough good things about this place. The food is creative, the flavors are perfect, and the servings are extremely generous. We love this little gem of a restaurant.
Vin Santo is our go-to favorite on the west side of Madison for authentic Italian food.
Cozy atmosphere and a great value, as the portions are huge and my husband and I usually split one salad and one entree. Small but nice wine list and good service round out a nice evening every time.
Our favorite date night spot in Middleton. Authentic Italian - every pasta dish is fabulous and sizable enough to share. Their bread pudding is out of this world.
We’ve brought many friends here for double dates, and they’ve also come back on their own accord after trying this spot. Truly a little gem in downtown Middleton.
Our second trip to Vin Santo, and it was delizioso again! Three of four of us ordered the by-request lasagna (it takes about 30 minutes to prepare, but absolutely worth every last second). It comes hot from the oven in an oval dish, allowing for a serving that neither of the 250 pounders at the table could polish off... but not for lack of trying. The fourth dish was a beautiful seafood fettuccine, some of which also made it home in a to-go container. Oh - did I mention the tiramisu? It's naughty good, and you'll thank me after you're done. Let's just say I had a date with my elliptical trainer the following day. :-)
One of our favorite places.
Food was wonderful- very authentic Italian. Ambience cozy and reminiscent of big city tucked away spots. Waitress tended to rush us but she was helpful in suggesting non garlic entrees!
We also have great food and special treatment. Thank you.
Never disappoints! Always wonderful ambiance, fabulous food and great memories!
Stunningly good food. What a sleeper pick in Middleton WI. I am an Italian-American food snob from the East Coast and I was blown away. Simply fantastic dishes all around.
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.
This restaurant never disappoints- great place to have a wonderful meal and relax
Vin Santo has outstanding menu, which is exceptionally prepared. While the place is small the experience has excellent every time we have visited.
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.
We dine frequently at Vin Santo. We love the warm, cozy, friendly atmosphere. The food is good. The service is attentive and friendly. Vin Santo is one of our favorite places for Friday 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.
Great food and service. Nice to go to a local owned business with the owners present. It shows in the food and service.
The Ravioli of the day was to die for!
We always have a wonderful experience at Vin Santo!! The food is delicious and the staff is friendly and helpful. We can always count on a truly great experience at Vin Santo!
Our dining experience was excellent. The food was as good as expected, and we had very high expectations. Service was outstanding.
Great food and wonderful wait staff. The owner is very engaged with guests, a strong positive.
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.
