We visit this restaurant in down town willow Glen on a regular basis and have enjoyed every occasion. Good food, wine and environment in both the main restaurant and bar.

Vin Santo is one of my favorite restaurants.
I am a good cook so it takes a lot to impress me and VIN Santo always pleases me!
This restaurant is a quaint neighborhood gem.
I always look forward to dining at Vin Sanyo!

This was a 4th year celebrating New Years Eve at Vin Santo for dinner. Welcoming atmosphere with a glass of presecco. Pre fixe menu of their greatest regular food offerings. They offer a wne pairing for your meal. Our waiter was attentive as well as the Chef and his wife. This is a great neighborhood find for Italian food. Would recommend this place for regular dining.

Throughly enjoyed the meal. The rolls served before the meal are amazingly good. I started with the Brussel Sprout Salad. Delicious. My wife had the grilled Romaine Salad. Yum.

Main course for my wife was Baramundi. Large piece cooked to perfect tenderness. I opted for the Risotto. Another large serving. You will definitely not leave hungry.

Our waitress was the owners daughter. She was personal, professional, and attentive. The owner stopped by to chat, not just with us but with every table.

We will come back.

Very good food & service on a holiday evening. The front half of the restaurant would really benefit from a thermal curtain hanging inside the door to keep the cold out on really chilly evenings as the door continually opens & closes with new diners. We had to keep our coats on throughout dinner.
