Pesto Ristorante: Food for the Heart and Soul in Italian Cuisine

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – Enjoy a cozy sit-down restaurant filled with family-friendly contemporary hospitality accompanied by the delicious mixed flare of Spanish and Italian food, fit to satisfy any lover of the delicacy.

Chef Alejandro Santoyo originated from Mexico, and his love for Italian cuisine flourished over 30 years ago through humble beginnings in Chicago. His passion for Italian food was further elevated in a partnership with his wife to start an Italian restaurant.

Chef Santayo's perseverance in sharing his love of Italian food turned his passion into life when he opened one of the best Italian restaurants in San Antonio. Family and food go hand-in-hand when honoring the soul and taste of Italian food for the Santoyo family.

"The Shrimp Alejandra came about because of my daughter, and she loves shrimp," Chef Santoyo, the owner of this delicious San Antonio Italian establishment, said.

Incorporating Mexican flavors into Italian cuisine is also important to Chef Santoyo. The restaurant's title is also an homage to the infusion of flavors. As pesto is a combination of basil and garlic, chipotle and cilantro's coexistence brought a richer flavor to Chef Santoyo's unique take on Italian food.

Bring good company and an appetite for seafood Italiano when you try the Avocado Salmon and Shrimp Alejandra. If seafood is not your forte, there is also the savory Romano Crusted Chicken option served on a bed of linguine topped with lemon butter, garlic sauce, and capers. Be pleased to discover the Mediterranean Salad has mandarin orange segments for a spark of sweet and zesty.
