Amazing all around – Great service with a family atmosphere. Great live music (it was TUE). Tried the sauteed shrimp (10/10), Empanadas (beef 10/10, cheese/basil 8/10), Panini (8/10), Cuban Salad (10/10), and a bold Argentinean cab (9/10). New local favorite!!

Great music (especially Wednesdays), great food & prices! – I live in the neighborhood, heard good things and checked them out. Their food is fantastic, especially the Cuban salad. They had a fantastic guitar player/singer named Bob playing everything from Jobim to Simon & Garfunkle to jazz standards. He was one of the finest singers I've ever heard. He said he was just hired to play regularly every Wednesday night. The service was fantastic...the atmosphere was very cool, Argentinian style.

Go there, especially Wednesday nights! You will not be disappointed!

A great place to eat, drink, and hang out in the neighborhood – Although word has it that the place is packed in the evenings we enjoyed some excellent tapas dishes, fine beers, and sangria one Monday afternoon with the place to ourselves (except for one diligent writer hunched over his notebook computer). Do yourself a favor and, if you're in the neighborhood, give Santino's a try. It's only a few blocks south of Ocean Park Blvd on Lincoln Blvd, just north of Rose.

Mean People & dumb drunks – I was there with my wife & two kids on Tuesday, bad waiters. We waited 30 minutes for our order & waiter. Then another 45 minutes for the food, that went cold right away. There were so many drunks cussing around my family. I felt very embarrassed front my family. Back to the food, it was so bad, it looked liked 8 years cook the damn food. I got very sick of it.

ONE OF THE WORST RESTURANT I EVER BEEN & ATE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE

Service, Service, Service – If there is something as important as good food in a restaurant it is good service and when you find both in one same place you have found a place to call home. This is why there are so many familiar faces at Santino's, people keep coming back. Whether it is Pizza nights, Pinguo's nights, with their fiary music, Paella nights, "talk about finger liking good" Sundays ASADOS "Argentinian for BBQ" and of course Brazilian time, well you have found a great fun place to go eat, and close to the BEACH!!! Of course their "TO GO" menu is just as good, you'll just miss the fun time and good service. Congratulations to the owners for such hard effort, I hope you grow soon, that place gets packed.

Sangria-lovers heaven! – I absolutely love this place. The food, ambiance and friendly staff transport you to some cafe in a beachy European/South American country. I've been there a few times now and they already know my name. The pizza and tapas are fantastic as are the desserts (which change everyday). However, best of all is the sangria. I could sit with a pitcher of these all day...

Awsome Pizza!!! Great variety and a very Healthy Pizza. Highly recommended. – Santino's is the real deal!

A great hang-out place where to meet, have a good time, and enjoy the very friendly atmosphere with great-healthy home-made food. The host-ownrers are exceptionally friendly and very attentive to good service, and make all the difference in the world to make sure you are well attended and having a good time.

The music, the food, and atmosphere is superb. Love the variety of its menu. Very hommy, very Argentinian with an Italian flavor. The Pizza with such a special thin crust, and grilled outdoors over mesquite wood is good to die for, and with great variety and style. No one should miss "Tuesdays-Pizza Nights", also when "Los Pinguos" play, a great Argentinian Folk music group.

Congratulations to Alejandra and Sergio, the lovely owners!

Enjoy! Salud!

Super locals hang-out with South American Flare – The pizza IS amazing, but a word to the wise, it's only made on Tuesday and Friday nights and currently the Argentine band Los Pinguos plays on Tuesdays and it's PACKED! So much fun, but reservations are definitely required for this night. You feel like you are at home with the great staff and beyond the pizza, the rest of the menu is solid. I live a few blocked away so am a regular. Also, if you like meat, you HAVE to come to the Sunday afternoon/evening Argentine BBQ. All you can eat and MUY RICO :)

Pizza on the Grill is to die for! – My friend just had his birthday party here and everyone went for the all-you-can-eat grilled pizza. The friendly owner kept heaping it onto our plates and I couldn't get enough. The crust is the thinnest, flakiest, most wonderful thing you'll ever taste and the toppings are fresh and varied (brie and tomato, veggie with avocado, roasted red pepper and mushrooms, plus many meat ones that I didn't try). The lighting is ideal - warm and dim. The back patio had a fire going and that's where the grill is so you get to watch the pizza action. For two people - all you can eat pizza and two alcoholic beverages - the bill came to $36 before tip. It's a great place to go for a party or a quiet, romantic dinner for two.

Love this place – One of My favorite restaurants. I live in the neighborhood and go here at least once a week. Have tried many menu selections and never been disapointed. The staff are super friendly. Great place for a mellow dinner that won't leave you broke.
