Excellent wine, lovely charcuterie and crostini, great ambience. Couldn’t have wished for a better place to start our stay in Firenze or a better introduction to the aperetivo culture! Each glass of wine comes with a paired small dish to enjoy. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Really enjoyed having a couple of glasses of wine here. The accompanying bites do a great job of tiding over the early evening hunger and are delicious to boot!

Really recommend this place for a cozy apperitivo.

My wife and I enjoyed our visit with a glass of Chianti and a ribbolito and crostini with pancetta, pecorino, and honey. The wine bar is very small (20 x 20 feet) with the bar area where they slice the prosciutto taking up at least half the space. We were lucky to get one of the 5 small tables in the corner near the door where we enjoyed our wine and watched the people. I found the space very cozy and relaxing spot to taste wine and eat some simple dishes. The service was very friendly as well, but note English was limited.

Il Santino's is a small and cozy wine bar on Santo Spirito. We enjoyed some excellent wine and food our friends. Meeting Nick was a highlight as he fed us beautiful prosciutto, boar and pecorino crostata, a lovely simple Tuscan tomato soup and bruschetta that was light and flavourful. The wine we liked best was a local...Soffacone. A really lovely afternoon in a beautiful city with great friends! Thank you Nick!
