We had such a great meal on our previous visit that we wanted to try it again. Renovations appear complete and this has opened the room. Our table was near the window and the restaurant was full but we had no trouble with the noise reported by others. We visited on a Sunday night because we could... read more

I visited Santinis on a very busy Wednesday night and it was fabulous! They couldn't find my booking and they handled the problem with warmth and professionalism-finding us a table quickly. The food was fresh, well cooked, inexpensive and delicious. I also loved the casual, modern service and all of the customers looked happy and relaxed. The tiramisu was terrific... More

Our main meal at Santini was superb,my husband had fettucini marinara and I had a pizza with the lot. When we ordered we were told that there would be a wait of 25 mins for the pizza, which was fine. The pizza was well worth the wait, yum! My husband throughly enjoyed his main meal also. As the evening progressed... More

Beautifull ,well cooked food made by excellent chefs but spoiled by the noisy venue. Would not go back with a party of people because of the extreme noise level, long wait time for meals, inadequate cutlery and glasses which no doubt caused the embarrassment to the waiting staff who struggled under the circumstances. would only consider ordering a takeaway.

busy noisy restaurant but great atmosphere and sublime food! We shared some of the entree sized chefs suggestions and could not wish for better flavours! The mushroom and gorgonzola gnocchi was wonderful as was the duck ragout and the venison pasta. Fabulous food and lovely service. Could not recommend this more highly!

The meals were very nice, although they ran out on beef carpaccio. The service was good. The wine by the glass(or mini bottle) was very limited. It was noisy, but I guess difficult to do anything about it. All in all, a good restaurant to get a decent meal. We have not tried the Pizza!

Had a booking for 12 people over a week prior. When we arrived there weren't enough wine glasses to go around. Ended up drinking out of water glasses. When we ordered we were told there would be a short wait. We finally got our meals about an hour and three quarters later. To make matters worse there were several tables... More

We enjoyed the meal so much we went back the following night. I had the gnocchi with gorgonzola and mushrooms both times. We had to go back the second night so my other party members could have their own instead of stealing mine! Pizzas are good and the gelati some of the best I have had (including many cups throughout... More
