Santo Mare is born from our idea of rediscovering and offering on our table in London the true Italian seafood cuisine and its tastes.

For this reason, we sail every day through the Tyrrhenian Sea, with our fishing boats back in Italy, to catch the best quality food. We then ship daily the fruits of our efforts to London and provide our clients with the chance to live an authentic experience.

Tradition, authenticity, quality and freshness are the commandments that we follow every day, with the aim of making Santo Mare thelandmark for seafood cuisine lovers in London

    Everything was great with 1 exception which spoiled our evening.At 21.10 the waitress pushed us if we want desserts coffees as we need to leave at 21.30 We ordered just one expresso so she pushed us to have the bill whilst we had 20 minutes left and there were 4 empty tables alongside. When you are paying £135-150 a head you expect a bit more tact.

    The restaurant offers some of the best seafood that I've had in London. Service is occasionally a bit slow but that's also because good food needs good preparation. The noise level is sometimes a bit too much for a relaxed conversation. Still, overall it was a memorable experience.

    This restaurant is in an old pub (public house). The owners have chosen to make only minimal decorations which is understandable but not in keeping with the other aspects of the restaurant which are aspirational. The food was very good. Fish very fresh and beautifully displayed before cooking. The wine list is excellent but very, very expensive implying that a relatively humble bottle is no less than £70. Being small drinkers, we solved the problem by having a glass each of very fine Tuscan chardonnay. The first courses were too large and in my case too oily therefore disappointing. The main dish as recommended by a thoughtful waiter was very impressive and very delicious. The desert was also outstanding.

    The food arrived 40-50 mins late. When asked about it, we were told that the chef was not there but when we wanted to cancel the reservation on the day, we were told that it was impossible to do without being charged. The spaghetti with clams was barely edible as it contained small broken pieces of clam shell all over. The rest of the food was delicious but not worth it considering the waiting time and the overall service.

    Pasta and seafood is really good. Chocolate fondant was completely overcooked. No soft texture in the middle. But when serving the waiter said ‘you’re welcome to take a picture’. Well, first make the dessert good…

    Great aesthetic & ambience, upbeat mellow tunes. Service cold at first, warmed up as meal progressed. Artichoke and Parmesan salad the finest ever tasted. Tagliatelle and tagliolini dishes were magnificent; warm, delicious fresh lobster in the former and unusual mint in the latter. We got the tagliolini boxed up as it was too voluminous; it tasted just as delicious last evening when re-awakened. All in all it’s a recommend.

    The shellfish carpaccios were something I had not come across before. We had the red shrimp and it was delicious. The “catch of the day” are all displayed on a wall of crushed ice so you can pick your own fish which is filleted tableside. We ate inside where tables are well spaced. If you pick all the best things on the menu plus a bottle of wine the cost can mount up quite quickly.

    I invited friends to join us for dinner at your restaurant, the food was excellent if a bit slow to arrive. But this is the second time having been before that we had to ask the staff to turn down the rather strange music that is too load in an already noisy restaurant. Why you choose to play 60 music is completely incongruous to the lovely italian surroundings. surely some beautiful italian music played in the background is a much better choice ??

    The food as always was excellent I usually go for dinner and today was my first experience in a long time for lunch.. booked for a second serving ie late and the service was slow and by the time dessert came it was so late that no one remembered to ask us if we wanted their signature gelato ( fait maison) not the souffle so paid the bill and just left Won’t do lunch again I guess! Dinner it will be…

    We were a family for late lunch on a Saturday. The food was good. Especially, the tagliatelle with lobster and the pasta nerrano. The quantity was plentiful. The fish was also well cooked and very tasty. The starters were indifferent. I would not recommend the fennel and tomato salad, neither the artichokes, nor the spinach from the sides. The tiramisu was good but have had better and again too expensive. The prices were excruciating. I an well aware that fish and seafood is expensive, but I don't think the price was representative of the food we had. The same goes for the wine options. Too expensive for what it is. The service was good , but as we were eating outside, I would have preferred our wine to be in a cooler by our table instead of the waiter bringing it from an inside station every time we needed a refill. Eating outside is not great unfortunately as the tables are by the road and next to a traffic light. Lots of dust gathered by the end of our session on the tablecloth. The service staff were all polite. In short, poor sides and salad, good mains but too expensive. Too expensive wine for what it was. Too expensive desserts again. Friendly staff. Better to have a full meal indoors.

    The John Dory was recommended to us by the waiter without being told the price. We ended up paying £180 for that dish alone which was excessive. Also, when we ordered a glass of Champagne, were charged £28 for 1 glass. We were very disappointed given that this was a special occasion and we felt that we were taken advantage of. The total bill was nearly £600 for a two course meal for 2 . We will not be returning. It's a real shame as our first experience there a year ago was a good one. I have never written a poor revue before. Really disappointing.
