The food at Santina likewise takes inspiration from the Italian Riviera, pulsing with bright and refreshing flavors with a gluten-free menu that highlights lighter dishes focusing on vegetables and fish. Santina's signature cecina, spaghetti blue crab and bass agrigento showcase its ability to integrate Italian coastal cuisine with modern culinary sensibilities.
Santina was named one of the best restaurants of 2015 by The New York Times, GQ and Bon Appétit, amongst other publications.
At Santina, it’s always summer.

Fabulous service and atmosphere!
Absolute fantastic service and great food.
Hostesses were unresponsive when we asked three times if our table was ready. Didn’t get seated until 45 mins after our reservation time.
Food is not great. Nice decor. Wait service was satisfactory. Had to ask to have empty plates removed after a long wait.
The Maître d’ was rude
Food was disappointing. Outdoor seating area, enclosed for season, was dirty. Table was dirty. Food was not good and way overpriced.
Food was really solid and great to share
Great! I don’t want to add more words to my review!
Noisy. Tables super close together
This is our second time there and it did not disappoint. LOVE the food and the service was great, very attentive and friendly. We sat outside on a beautiful day, too bad there was bit of construction that took away, next time I would stay inside.
Best gluten free restaurant in all my travels and best Frito misto midtown of all time. Must try grapefruit Granata Amazing staff that actually cares. It’s a great experience every time!
As per usual, had an amazing meal. Our waitress was fantastic.
Our server, Gabby was awesome and we met some great people sitting at the next table. Perfect night to sit outside.
Sunday brunch, was somewhat busy. The kitchen had run out of many options on the menu , first asked for the GF tortellini, waiter then tells us that they had run out , the lobster linguini was an option but they ran out of lobster and had to replace with shrimp, so ordered the fish sandwich ... 2 minutes later the waiter said that they had run out of that also , so ordered the egg sandwich which was practically inedible .
But the waiter was nice .
Don’t order the aperol spritz either ... there’s was disgusting , not sure of they added tap water to the mix , the worst I’ve ever tried.
I went as they list gluten free options but their gluten free is low on taste and poor quality.
That was my third visit and have become increasingly disappointed , but had given them chances as not too many gluten free places around , I will not return .
it was a beautiful night in nyc. hostess accommodated we wanted to sit outside. the staff was friendly and eager to please. apps were good. my branzino was great. we enjoyed our evening there. it seemed that everyone enjoyed their meals. my friends wanted chocolate after for desert and this was not on menu.
The tables are a bit close together and somewhat inaccessible if you have special needs. The staff was good at accommodating.
Perfect spot for dinner with the girls.
We enjoyed our lunch at Santina. The ambiance, food, service and close proximity to the Whitney is a plus.
Love that this restaurant is all gluten-free. The almond pancakes are the best I've ever had in my life. Also be sure to get the smokey tomato jam with any omelet. It's the perfect place for brunch before taking a walk on the high line.
Mice ran across our feet about 4-5 times. The food was awful and it has always been great. Salmon was very fishy.
Burned food and ride maitre’d
1h wait for the table, rude hostess, untrained stuff, food was great but that’s it
Very tasty food. Nice ambiance and crowd. Long bathroom line. Limited desert menu.
I took my Grandmother and Aunt here when they were in town. The service was pretty good and we enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant. I was surprised at how empty it was for a Saturday night though. The bread we received before our meal came out completely burned. We enjoyed our meals (eggplant Parm and fettuccine lobster) but none were spectacular. Considering all the nice restaurants in NY, I rank this one as average.
Would have eaten anything on the menu! Service was absolutely amazing, the menu was explained very well and we were given a heads up that things are being made to order and may take a while - well worth it! We had a reservation and even though the restaurant got very crowded as the night went on, we were never rushed through our meal. Great wine list, but I would definitely recommend going for the cocktails!
Made a reservation weeks in advance for a birthday. Got there on time but had to wait 30 minutes for our table! Ridiculous.
Muy caro para la comida que ofrecen...ademas ver pasar ratones mientras cenas es muy desagradable.
food, service, ambiance, everything 5 stars! and it's all gluten free so need to navigate the menu! def my new go-to spot in NYC!
Wonderful service.... as ALWAYS!
I had a wonderful date with my wife. Ambience was great
Beautiful and bright restaurant with excellent food. Our server was knowledgeable and was able to accommodate my daughter’s special dietary needs.
Great service and amazing food
Amazing,great food and service can’t wait to go back
Love their brunch food
Amazing food and ambiance! Perfect place for a nice weekend dinner.
Food was great as was our waiter but upon entering the restaurant 10 minutes before our 6:00 reservation we were told to wait at the bar (empty restaurant) and they would come and get us when the table was ready. (?). We went to the bar and were ignored while the bar staff huddled in the corner trying to avoid eye contact (other people were already having drinks at the bar). Once they eventually took our drink order the hostess came over and told us our table was ready. I’m not sure what the issue was when we arrived but I know it didn’t make my wife and I feel welcome.
Love going here for business and social reasons!
It’s an awesome location, great ambiance. They were out of 5 items by our 8 pm reservation, which was disappointing. The food was ok.
Location (right under end of highline), food, service and atmosphere was very good. My only negative comment would be portions a bit small for price.
Food was delicious and server was super helpful and accommodating. Perfect place to dine near the High Line
