Santorini is listed as an Italian/Greek/Middle Eastern restaurant and its menu bears witness to this. First of all, we loved sitting outside on the balcony with its wrought iron railings which reminded me of New Orleans.
The waiters wore long black aprons and looked professional, not aspiring actors or students, so that is also a plus in my book.
The extensive menu made it hard to choose, but I opted for the grilled octopus which was cooked to absolute perfection.
My friends had the seafood salad, the chicken kebab and the lamb wrap and it was all delicious.
I highly recommend this restaurant for the food and the service.

Been eating here for 30 years. Owned by two Armenian brothers that use their mothers recipes. Best middle eastern and Italian dishes anywhere. Prices very fair as they own the building. Great for large gatherings and they make you feel like family. Service is wonderful. Try the vegetarian meze. It is to die for with the best humus and other middle eastern treats. A 10 star!

We went to the Santorini for happy hour one evening. All of the appetizers are amazing. We ordered one of everything off of the list. Each was $6.00. The hummus was especially good along with the calamari and the flatbread pizza.
For 4 hungry men, the bill came to under (before tip) $70 with drinks and everyone left sated.

Located in the heart of old town on the second level of an old brick building cafe Santorini provides a wonderful ambiance , great consistently good food and a nice bar. Many of the waiters have worked there for years and the menue is classsic Mediterranean; the lamb kabobs are fabulous ! Get a table on the patio if possible .

Really interesting Mediterranean menu which includes classic Greek and Italian items plus some Middle Eastern dishes. Friendly staff that offers a lot of helpful presence. Full bar with great cocktails including an extensive wine menu. Dessert menu is less spectacular than the appetizers and main dishes but has some serviceable palate-cleansers.
