“Simple Charm”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This restaurant hasn't changed in years but then that is part of the charm. If you want simple Italian food in a restaurant with a fantastic, buzzing atmosphere and not at all pretentious then this is a great little place. Tucked away from the High Street but still within walking distance. Basic Italian food, the pizzas are really good and I just love the simplicity of this place. Great for families and with friends.

“Economy pizza”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Santaniellos has been frozen in time since I used visit here with my pocket money with friends as a 16 year old. Back then I didn't mind the tatty interior as the pizza seemed great. 15 years on the pizza is just as good and the restaurant is always a good cheap option when you don't want to cook or dine formally

Great pizza and brilliant value. Have and will continue to visit this restaurant for years! Could do with a little refurbishment however as the atmosphere can be stale

“Had to check I was in England”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Been to this restaurant twice and both times were excellent. Yes, the decor is dated and yes the table cloths are plastic but this adds to the charm. The food is simply excellent, the wine better than acceptable and the service friendly and efficient. The pizzas are large, well stocked with toppings and delicious. Cooked in front of you and served with a smile. A litre of house wine is £11 and is very, very drinkable. Puds are good but limited. Try the limoncello, which is ice cold and delicious.. It is very reminiscent of the pizzerias you find tucked away in the back streets of Italy and well worth a visit. Unlike the ever growing pizza chain restaurants this has an individual style which sets it apart. Fine dining.....no. Great value and good honest food......yes foe sure.
