Italian
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.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8

There were exactly zero restaurants we enjoy hanging out in Meatpacking until Santina arrived. Now there’s one.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Had the most terrible experience. We waited 2 hours between our appetizers and meal. Our waiter disappeared and didn’t come out and communicate that the food was going to be delayed and shared zero information with us. Then the manager sent us a round of shots and a basket of bread to “hold us over until our food came”. One of the shots has a plastic zip tie in it. When our food finally came it was undercooked- steak was raw and pasta was crunchy. It was unacceptable. I will never go back.

We had not been to Santina for the last three months due to our travels. We went there the other night and realized how much we missed this exceptionally tasty and creative cuisine and the friendly service that makes you feel welcome like an old friend.

Cant beat the location, especially if you're going to the Whitney. I came here a few times when it first opened, for dinner and lunch. The food was really delicious. Had Brunch recently and the service was not so hot, a little spaced out, food was good but not up to par for the prices.

Went here for a birthday breakfast/brunch with some friends. The food was yummy and the staff was great and very friendly. The atmosphere is light and airy - big windows, plants, modern. I have celiac disease and the staff was knowledgable and the menu was very easy to order from. There was something for everyone, including a refreshing brunch dessert as a nice surprise for my birthday. Very reasonably priced.

Hostess was very rude in general.
would not seat our party of 6 even though 5 of us were there and the 6th was in a cab stuck in traffic.
she seated us in the outdoor area when a table in the main dining room was available. Big lack of ambiance in the outside dining area.
however, the food was very good.

One of my favorite restaurants in the City. Creative dishes, friendly alive atmosphere, food is delicious, upbeat fun staff. Menu is about 95% gluten free but you would never have any idea of that from the food. Fritto Mista is off the charts, other starters and salads great as well. Can mix and match dishes from all parts of the menu to have great, great meal. Great for two and even better with bigger group for communal meal with more things to taste.

Disappointing meal, been here repeatedly and service has deteriorated, the food is nothing special but convenient to Museum. Location trumps food and service if you want convenience it’s great if you want good food I’d walk a bit further!

Even though my husband and I enjoyed our meals, the tables were too close to each other’s. We had an “intimate” meal with each of the tables right beside us. We didn’t like the seating at all.

Amazing dinner with family. John our server was beyond exceptional and provided excellent service. Nathan, who seemed to be the manager took great care of us and sat us right on time for our 7:30 Fri night reservation. Reservations are highly recommended as the restaurant gets really busy late at night.

I was underwhelmed by the food here which was disappointing because I’d heard great things. In my opinion, my starter salad was swimming in dressing which was also bland and my entree the swordfish also came out bland and very oily. I also wasn’t a fan of the preparation. It was a thin cut of fish covered in olives and beans. My friends got pasta and described their dishes as good not great. It was disappointing because our server was fantastic and the ambiance was great.

Menu choices were interesting and uniformly delicious.
Staff was pleasant and helpful.
We were celebrating a birthday, something I had noted when I made our reservation but which was not acted upon by the staff. That left us just a bit disappointed to close out an otherwise wonderful evening.
