Beautiful evening spent at Vin Santo on February 18. They were still decorated for Valentine's Day. We were a party of four out for the evening and trying out a new for us restaurant. It was lovely. Food was delicious. Service was great. Highly recommend.

Great service from Umberto, stuffed salmon and branzino were particularly good. Love the French press coffee after the meal

Service was great and the food is amazing. So nice to see different types of food other than the standard Italian fare. The waiter's recommendation for a wine was spot-on delicious. We probably overspent our time but were never rushed. All in all an awesome experience.

My third time here, and this place continues to exceed my expectation of what a beautiful date night restaurant should be.
The food is amazing, the servers are great, and the wine pairing is spot on. Such a romantic atmosphere, and I'm so thankful to have found this gem!

Clearly this is a Willow Glen classic dining spot but the food was boring but generally well-prepared. Our server wasn't trying to impress anyone. She did not have helpful or confident suggestions or opinions regarding the menu. My wife and I each had the gelato for dessert. Her portion was about 50% larger than mine but had the incorrect combination of flavors.

This is by far the best 🇮🇹restaurant I've been to in San Jose. Atmosphere is great, service excellence, and the food is authentic, and is really good. 10 ⭐ spot.

Open table reservation honored immediately. Our server was delightful.
I started with a grilled Romain salad. Delish! Two very lark full lettuce stalks were covered in goodies like palm hearts etc. dressing was great. Lettuce cold and crunchy.
My main dish was spaghetti carbonara with crispy pork belly. Outstanding. It was Wednesday night so we didn’t have to pay corkage for the win.e we brought. Tuesday’s you get 50% off the restaurant bottles.

There was entertainment and the place was a bit noisy but food and service were worth it.

Friendly service and tasty meal. It was very busy. I usually visit during a weeknight which is more calm.
