ABOUT

Santino’s restaurant reminds us of that classic 80′s sitcom Cheers. Although it’s located in sunny Santa Monica as opposed to Boston, it oozes that familiar family vibe that enchanted the viewers of Cheers for so many years. As the well-known theme tune so rightly says, “Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came.” If you not only enjoy good food and wine but feel that familiarity and hospitality are equally as important in creating a good night out, then you will not be disappointed with Santino’s.

Unlike other restaurants where very little interaction is made between the establishment’s staff and customers, or even between the customers themselves, everyone working at Santino’s has a name. Ariel and Pancho are responsible for the delicious menu, Sebastian and Colette for the friendly service, Tia for her warm welcomes, Hythum for his hands on entertainment and Sergio, the owner, is always there to make you laugh. Somehow their positive cheer rubs off on the customers who in return readily interact with each other. At Santino’s, people come together.
The restaurant is named after the owner’s first-born son and because of its family friendly atmosphere it is not unusual to see kids enjoying themselves too.

It’s a little slice of spice right here in LA…
