I ordered a stuffed squash pasta in a sage & butter sauce but it had an anise taste with no taste of sage; I think there was something wrong with my food. I had stomach cramps, diarrhea & vomiting early in the morning. I travel a lot. I'm vegetarian. I very rarely get ill from eating out. My husband &... More

The setting and service at this restaurant are exceptional and the wine list is great, with very affordable prices. Unfortunately the food is not great if you're looking for an authentic Italian dish. Our pizzas were soggy and the pasta sauces were a bit strange. Nothing is horrible; it's just not as good as it should be at these prices.

Excellent service and food. I recommend it. Not cheap. I ate the best meat and the selection of wine is very good.

Unbelievable view for sure especially for dinner. Having had a heavy lunch I only had bruschetta and the vino bello salad both of which were with the freshest ingredients. Sunset here was magical

A very nice and stylish place. Ive been there with my mum during our one night stay in santa cruz. We went for a dinner and we enjoyed the place so much that we came back for lunch on the next day. The prices are like in Santiago, but the food like in heaven...

We had a late dinner in the restaurant and were welcomed very friendly. The restaurant offers typical Italian food, we had mixed bruschetta as starter which were great. As main course we had some beef which was good. I suggest that you rather go for some pasta or risotto dishes. The mushroom risotto which came with the steak was also... More

What a great meal! From the friendly owner, to the attentive wait staff, and the wonderful sunset view, it was a perfect way to end our trip to Santa Cruz. The prices were quite reasonable, and the ambiance was exactly what we were looking for. I would come back just to have another plate of the delicious shortribs over gnocchi!

We went there for lunch, the place is beautifully located, with a great view to Laura Hartwig vines. The food was good, but it could have been better ... we didn't try the pasta ...

Even tho' not very full, this restaurant has a buzz to it which appeals. Dishes were imaginative, maybe with an excess of greens, and the wine list was wide-ranging. In all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Maybe a little bit pricey.

Who came up with the idea of putting 2 of my favorite dishes together?? Bellisimo!! Start to finish this was a great meal. Restaurant is simple and rustic. Perfect place for a bottle of red and a great meal.

Specializing in an Italian cuisine with Mediterranean and American touches, Ristorante Vino Bello is set in a restored foreman's adobe building in the heart of the Colchagua wine valley. Surrounded by the beautiful Laura Hartwig vineyards and the snow-capped Andes in the distance, Ristorante Vino Bello was originally the first Italian restaurant in the Santa Cruz area and after over five years, continues to serve exquisite plates, from homemade pastas to artisanal pizzas to specialty meat. So come enjoy a glass of wine from our extensive wine list and indulge in our delicious homemade tiramisu!
