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.

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.

Great food, good to share. Wonderful chickpea appetizers. Popular place with the noise level to match, but worth it for the food. Gracious wait staff

Every time we are in New York we visit this restaurant. Great vibe, good energy and amazing food.The food is fabulous gluten free. Lots of very tasty options. The service was terrible. It took 30 minutes to get our table with a reservation. We had to continually ask for our waiter for service.
We were very disappointed with the lack of service this time given how much we love this restaurant.

Such a beautiful restaurant...reminded me of Florence. The Venician murano glass chandeliers gave it the best ambiance. Our server was the absolute best, was helpful, knowledgeable, and on top of it. The food was delicious we all got different plates and all loved it. And the dessert agh amazing. Though the drinks were delicious they were over priced.

Food was amazing! The service was efficient....maybe too efficient...felt like the staff is trained to feed and ship out the guests. Please let your guests relax 🙂!

Pricey all gluten-free (but delicious) menu. Usually a spot I go when my parents are paying. Plenty of healthy food and juice options, but also indulgent items that you won’t be able to believe are gluten free. The fire alarm falsely went off while we were there, which apparently is not unusual — no one had to evacuate, but the noise continued beyond when we departed. Luckily, we were almost finished our meal when it was set off.

One of my favorite restaurants! I always bring friends when they come to visit. It does get a little loud occasionally so Friday/Saturday nights can be loud for parents visiting.

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 .

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.

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!
