Success! Thanks for posting your review of Vinsanto Ristorante. You’ve done the world some good today.

I took my wife here for her bi...

I took my wife here for her birthday. She actually wanted to try it. I have to say it was "THE WORST" food Ive ever had. I ordered the pasta with crab, lobster and prawns. Let me tell you, Ive had better Tuna Helper. There was no sign of any lobster or crab, the prawns were extremely small and still had the shells on the tails. The pasta had some sort of vodka sauce that tasted like it came from a jar. We o... view more

Home Away from Home!

We love this place. It is like our ""Cheers"" You will always run into someone you know around town, and the staff makes you feel right at home. You can tell they put their heart and soul into this place, despite the challenges small owner businesses face in these times. I love the many seasonal pasta's Chef Umberto creates, and he is alway happy to augment your dish if needed. OHHHH and the amazing strawberry... view more

Out with the good, in with the bad

My daughter and her husband used to praise Vin Santo and frequent the restaurant often. We also have been there numerous times and found it to be good. But there is now new ownership and boy has it changed.\r \r Tonight my wife and I went to the restaurant with a $100 gift certificate from about 18 months ago, which has no expiration date (by law it cannot). The owner, Umberto Pala, came out and said he cannot h... view more

Save your $ and go somewhere else

Upon entering this quaint looking Willow Glen restaurant, I was greeted by a gruffy guy, sitting down at a table near the door, working on a laptop in front of an empty plate of food. A confusing first impression since he turned out to be the owner (and chef?). I admit my expectations are high when I go to a 'nice' restaurant, but like they say, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.\r \r Waits... view more

A Study In the Demise of a Fine Restaurant...

UPDATE: 12/31/07. Vin Santo used to be my favourite restaurant in San Jose. Great service, wonderful ambiance, fantastic food. Alas, with the recent changeover of ownership and chef, I have to say that I was extremely disappointed in my meal. We went there for New Years Eve (and the fact that it's still New Years Eve and I'm writing this review should tell you something). The prix fixe menu was pretty steep at $85 a ... view more

An Excellent Place to Dine!

Highly recommended to me by a friend, I had to see for myself that all the high praise was indeed true. This place is amazing! I've never had a more curteous waitstaff and one so knowledgable about their winelist. Our meal was perfectly complimented with a wonderfully tasting wine. It is a very romantic little place with food that is beautifully prepared with the perfect combination of ingredients creating a trul... view more

The staff and the owner Susan are mag... view more

Fine Food, Great Menu

The menu is diverse and the dishes contain a perfect blend of herbs and spices to compliment their main ingredients. Our waiter selected a nice bottle of wine that complimented the meal wonderfully. A decent variety of desserts are also available. We had the sorbets which were fantastic.
