During the last year when meeting my friends for a glass of wine before dinner, we always ended up choosing Il Santino. The little enoteca Il Santino is a much smaller sibling of the famous restaurant Santo Bevitore, just next door. The wine bar is so tiny that it easily gets crowded during the hours between work and dinner. It’s not easy to get a seat but there’s also the counter and many choose to stand inside or outside while tasting a nice glass of wine. For me it’s worth the wait since I enjoy the mood, wine and food.
Whether you choose to sit inside, enjoying the chatting, music and relaxed atmosphere or sit outside at one of the small tables when it’s warm, Santino is always a good idea. The wine list is long and you get a tasty little nibble with your glass. Perfect to come in before dinner for an intimate glass for two or with a group of friends. Sometimes we end up staying to have something from the great, but more limited, menu and continuing to enjoy nice wines until late at night.
