We went to this restaurant because it was part of the Cattle Baron restaurant group that we like a lot. However, it was a pretty disappointing experience. Neither my entree or my wife's really came up to expectations--particularly considering that this is not a cheap pizza joint. The linguini and clams that I ordered had much too much pepper (chile) and my wife's spinach ravioli were really just ordinary ravioli with what appeared to be frozen spinach thrown in the sauce. In general, the food was just not exciting. The wait staff were really great, however. They are attentive, and provide superior service.

Pros: service

Cons: expensive for what you get

It is the best Italian restaurant in town. The service was great; the waitress knew her wines and very friendly. It is an upscale restaurant, however, the dress code is very much relaxed which is great in a place like Ruidoso. The atmosphere was really nice, relaxing, down to earth, and sophisticated. We are definetely going back!

Santino's is a little more upscale than other italian restaurants in the area, but not too stuffy, and affordable. Good classic italian food, great deserts, and the waiter was very knowlegable about the wine list. Good ambiance, even if you're just visiting the lounge for a glass of wine or cup of coffee.

If you're in town and want a nicer Itilian restaurant this would be a good place to go. You'll impress with people not used to fancy restaurantes but will fall short with people who are. The food is good either way and the service is better than most in town. Whatever you have will probably be tasty but when you're done with dinner spring for desert and have one of there canoli's. Also I found there waiters to be very knowledgable about there wine list.
