Santina is a coastal Italian oasis where people can drink and celebrate day or night in Riviera style. Located under the High Line in a glass box designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano, Santina is light and festive. This iconic structure is complemented by handcrafted Murano chandeliers from Venice, and outfitted with lush orange and palm trees. With one step in, guests are immediately transported to the sunny Italian seaside.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

The tables are a bit close together and somewhat inaccessible if you have special needs. The staff was good at accommodating.

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.

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!

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.
