All reviews pizza calamari fries italian food high quality ingredients regular customers busy night family meal wonderful evening with some friends nice meal visited this restaurant riccardo dough limoncello waiters mains
Unbelievable place for food! Great service, great people who served us, food was out of this world! Get people, family or friends down there it’s one of the best Italian places I’ve been too and I’m italian!
Visited this restaurant yesterday. The staff are very pleasant and gave us a warm welcome. The food it nice (nothing special) although I consider it to be very expensive for what it is. I have two main observations:
1. They charge a service charge and...then try to get you to leave a tip on top of that.
2. We had a bottle of Merlot red wine for £23.95. It would have been cheaper to buy 3 x 250ml glasses (i.e. the same as one botte) as this worked out to £22.95. Most of the red wines were priced in this mysterious way. I even pointed it out to the waitress but we still got charged the higher price.
I probably wouldn't return.More
This restaurant asks for tips AND service charges.
I was duped into paying a tip on top of a service charge - something my waiter didn’t offer to correct when it became clear after the fact that I had misunderstood that a tip had been...requested in addition to the service charge.
I queried the practice of asking customers for a double gratuity with Santi the next day. They were unrepentant that this was company policy. Their response (copied) missed the point - namely that not making this clear at the point of payment is highly misleading and that customers don’t like being asked to (being subtly pressured to) pay a double gratuity.
I’ve eaten here several times in the past (I like their food), but will sadly never be going back.More
Lovely authentic Italian! We had the aribiatta (very good) and prawn linguine (also good). The service was great, friendly staff! Would definitely recommend if in the area! The tiramisu was a bit of a let down but overall good.
Visited yesterday evening with my family. My wife's salmon was uncooked. She noticed this and sent it back. If it had been served to a child they probably would have eaten it and had food poisoning. We also ordered focaccia with cheese, they served us...pizza bread with cheese. I take it they were hoping we wouldn't say anything or know the difference. I would suggest the issue is with the quality of staff and chefs after covid.
Give it a miss unless you want food poisoning.More
My wife and I were out for a cycle around East London and we came across Santi and it looked good. We ordered takeaway pizzas, a Capricciosa and the Santi with extra smoked pancetta. They were amazing! Beautiful smokey bases with delicious ingredients. Staff are...lovely and smiley and everyone looked to be having a great time enjoying their food. We'll definitely be back, the rest of the menu sounds delicious!More
I am highly allergic to Cow Lactose.
However, Buffalo, Sheep, Goat Lactose has different compounds and these are fine.
We very carefully asked for a Buffalo only pizza with the spicy sausage. After waiting a considerable time and then bringing it home, the first bite...found it to have cows cheese on there as the main base.
This was 5 minutes ago and I can already feel the allergic reaction taking place. I expect to feel the effects of this for well over a week if not a month.
I can safely say I will never be going back, which as a local cuts out an option I could have used and have used for some years now.More
