I went here this evening many years since my last visit. The starter was lovely, Tricolour Treat, and the bread was very fresh. I was however very disappointed with my main, Agnello, which was overcooked with no hint of pink to the meat at all. My main was also served a good few minutes before my side dishes arrived, which...

Stopped for dinner as we were looking for somewhere to eat dinner. Walked in nice welcome. Got a table service was nice. Staff seemed friendly. The wine started at about £38. Seemed way overpriced to me. Food was nice. Well presented. Great music and vibe. Nice bar area although we never sat there. Would probably try somewhere else local before... More

I went to Santini for lunch with my daughter. The food was excellent (although expensive) but the service was disappointing. Staff appeared miserable and they were inattentive. Having said that the food made up for it. I had liver and my daughter had sea bass both great.

Had a pleasant lunch at this exclusive place. Their seafoods were absolutely great. Had a Dover Sole dish and it was the best Dover Sole dish I had before. Had a bowl of Minestrone with bread and it was even great especially in cold weather. Definitely wish to revisit

I get why many people swear by this restaurant. The food is generally good and on my second visit, the atmosphere remained elegant and sophisticated, and that's attractive. But the food this time around was less praise-worthy. It is quite pricey for the quality on offer and I was disappointed in my lunch as a whole. In particular, the buffalo... More

We were back at Santini in August. They have changed their menu since we were here last, but it was just as good, if not even better. The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. Wonderful grilled lamb chops and zucchini fries. Try the house mashed potatoes. They are made with butter that has been infused with rosemary and... More

DONT ORDER THE CRAB SALAD!! Unless you want to pick crab shells from EACH bite. That was frustrating. Otherwise, my husbands food was good. My husband loves Frutti Di Mare, which is usually done with pasta. Santini does this dish with risotto. After asking to substitute for pasta, they refused. My husband was disappointed, loves pasta with this dish. Not... More

"Definitely a place to be seen. Owner Gino Santini serves up fabulous Italian flare. Elegant and sophisticated restaurant with a newly refurnished cocktail bar where diners can also enjoy a lighter meal if they prefer. Menu highlights include seasonal salads, homemade pasta such as spaghetti with fresh lobster and papperdelle with artichokes and a range of fresh fish and meat dishes."

Staying in Belgravia

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
