Santino’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria was opened in 2000 under another name, the first with that name in the area. Why did we change our name you ask? We feel it was a good time to separate our restaurant from that of other local restaurants with the same name. As your neighborhood family restaurant & friend for 12 years we want our stellar reputation for quality food, service and community support to stand alone and be distinguished from other restaurants.
Santino’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria is a family style neighborhood restaurant where Good Food, Good Times and Good Friends can all be found. No chain restaurant or franchise – just local owners who are also your friends and neighbors.
We have been and will continue to be committed to providing you with the best quality of food and service. Even though our name has changed we will continue as a supporter of all the educational & sport organizations in our area.
As one customer stated in an online review: “Great NY style peetza pye: good flavor to the sauce, cheese blend’s deelish, toppings yum, and the crust is perfecto. I seriously don’t know why you’d order from the chain guys when this is a far, far better option. Support the neighborhood business, y’alls!!” And another customer, talking about chains, said: “Why on Earth would anyone order from a chain when this little gem is nearby?”
The manager of Santino’s, Shane Black, a local Alpharetta resident, is always there to greet you with a friendly hello. The owner, Bev Gailitis, also a local resident, has been in the restaurant business for years.
