This week I went to Santino’s Little Italy, 352 E. Stewart St. The restaurant opened in January of 2017. While I was there, I got the chance to sit down and talk to the owners, Santo Galati and Greg Huber. Santo told me that his parents came to Milwaukee from Italy in the 1950s. Inspired by his travels throughout Italy and the food that he grew up eating, Santo wanted to bring his style of Italian cuisine to Milwaukee.
