We had the most amazing magical experience here last night. The atmosphere was brilliant, with lovely music playing which fit the ambiance perfectly. The food was incredible!! Everything was so flavoursome and cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting an...exquisite, unique dining experience. Generous portions too! Massive shoutout to the seafood linguini and the lamb. Cannot wait to come back.More

Tucked away on a street corner, close to Victoria Station, you will find this Italian restaurant, which differentiates itself from the countless of other Italian restaurants by its fine dining experience and the meticulous service provided; Even though the restaurant was full and we were...a total of 7 people around the table, who all ordered different dishes, the staff knew exactly who ordered what and mastered to serve everyone at the same time. The food was absolutely perfectly cooked and arranged.More

We ate early (17:45) on the way to the theatre. The place was quiet on arrival but the welcome was warm and professional. By 18:30 sufficient people had arrived to make the atmosphere warm and relaxed. Food choice was very good and quality top notch....Wine prices are what you'd expect in London. Never rushed and coped with allergy restrictions very well. Worth a repeat visit.More

I had a superb pre theatre lunch here with 5 of my friends. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the staff were efficient and friendly and the pumpkin ravioli was 👍🏼. We’d all like to visit again to enjoy a much longer lunch.

When our taxi pulled up we admired the decorated entrance that was aglow with tiny lights on all the trees. The restaurant had dim lighting with lovely light fixtures above the tables and there was soft music playing z The manager Bodgen warmly greeted us...and showed us to our table. He also helped us with our wine selection. We enjoyed a delicious dinner. For a romantic night out dine here.More

What can I say about this restaurant, but simply the best Italian/Mediterranean restaurant in town. Great food, staff, ambience and price. A lovely way to spend a few hours of your life. Bellissima💕

Early dinner after a show in London, delicious food, particularly the beef carpaccio which was superb and my son’s fresh tagliatelle with porcini and truffle was so good!

The Santini Restaurant is a fine Italian eatery, where we recently had dinner at this restaurant with friends and everything about the food and service was all good. The restaurant décor was easy on the eye, service was very good and the food was good,...the portion size is generous and presentable. There is a very nice private dining room on the first floor if you have a special occasion and want to be away from the main restaurant, which was were we was seated. I definitely recommend and we will returnMore

One of the best Italian restaurants in London hands down, I will continue to always recommend santini to everyone I know! The service is attentive without being intrusive, with genuinely lovely people. The food is wonderfully fresh and with delicious flavours. If you are looking...for an Italian restaurant in London do not consider anywhere else. The decor is beautiful and cosy inside, and it has an amazing lit terrace outside- so festive and lovely in the summer. Thank you Santini for a great evening and we will return.More
