“Authentic Italian in South Delhi”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

It's hard to find Western style food prepared well in India. Most of the restaurants just have too much Indian influence in their cooking, with chili being the main offending culprit. This restaurant, while not having a great location, is able to break free and give you a true Italian cuisine, while providing an elevated view, if you get the table by the window and sometimes they have a live musician. But, we go for the food and it is great. Also, we always stop by the deli downstairs and pick up some items to go, always delicious. Spinach and artichoke dip are awesome, the mushroom soup was wonderful, pizza (thin crust) is great, most pasta dishes are very tasty. Worth the trip to this rather dilapidated, older, outdoor mall.

“Better for take out than to eat in”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Restaurant lacks ambience. Lacks charm. But, great to dash in and grab some very good pesto, some antipasto, the bread rolls and pizza dough.

“Reasonable Italian food”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

If you go to a restaurant in Delhi that serves western food don't expect to much. There are only a few restaurants that are able to serve decent western food and they are really expensive. Having said that in this restaurant you can get reasonable Italian food against reasonable prices. To bad the location is not very nice and more it would be good if the owners redecorated the place.

“Great Dip, OK Service”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This Italian restaurant is in Basant Lok and was started a few years ago. You don’t really go there for the service, because, honestly, that is just simply terrible BUT their food is really quite amazing.
If you are a typical Indian and want Indianized Italian food, this place is not for you. The food is as authentic as it is going to get in Delhi! We had an amazing spinach and artichoke creamy dip with crostini as a starter and everyone I have gone with has always loved that. Somehow, there is never enough to go around! I usually add some chili flakes but really, it is quite amazing. Creamy and delicious, you can actually taste the vegetables over the sauce but not so much that if you aren’t a veggie lover you will hate it. Whatever you do, you MUST order this.

I have had clams/mussels (I can’t remember which) with pasta and it was really quite yummy. It took forever to come but it was ok enough to wait for it. We have had pizza there and that was quite nice. Thin crust, good veggies and overall nice. My friends didn’t like their cream sauce pasta but I think it was actually ok. The minestrone soup was way too salty, so if you are a blood pressure patient, I suggest you give that a miss. The garlic bread I think was also just about ok but the complimentary bread they give you is quite nice. I believe it is baked by the restaurant and so is usually fresh.
They also have a counter where they sell various anti-pasti like olives and other preserved things along with bread and deserts.
So while this might not be a ringing review, I do suggest you go to at least try out the dip. They seem to have perfected that particular recipe!

“Hyped !!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Have been to Sartoria. Heard a lot about it in friend circle regarding their Italian food.

Well to begin with, the Ambience is below average. It is not cosy. The AC was not good as well.

The food was below par. The Chicken dish ordered in main course "Chickne sicilian style" has excess salt and was not eatable. The Risotto was also below par.

However the starters were really good. They serve liquor as well and had some good international beer brands. The live band was also cool.
