We recently dined at Vin Santo, in Willow Glen, CA and overall had an average experience. Unfortunately, we were unable to obtain dining room seating, but sat in the bar at a small table. The service and servers were off-the-chart friendly, the meatballs were otherworldly,...More

Wow! Amazing food in a cozy neighborhood restaurant. They have an extensive menu which makes decisions tough, and makes you want to come back. The service and food was top shelf. I had the pasta medley which is nice choice when you can't decide on...More

The only reason this isn't a 1 star place is that the waitresses tried so hard to do a good job and the red sauce wasn't bad (I am 100% Italian. I know my sauce). Otherwise, the food was downright horrible. Taste, quality, presentation. Yuck....More

Vin Santo is a real neighborhood find. The food is very good, the menu is veramente Italiano. The three course dinner for $45 is a price performer. Can be loud and very busy.
