Santina is a coastal Italian restaurant created by Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick. Situated on what used to be the coast of Manhattan where some of the city's first farmers market once stood, Santina takes inspiration from the neighborhood’s history with a menu that highlights vegetables and fish. Dishes like Giardinia Crudite, Spaghetti Blue Crab and Bass Agrigento integrate Italian coastal cuisine with modern culinary sensibilities. Santina is located underneath the Gansevoort entrance to the High Line park in a structure designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano.

We had called as we were running late for our reservation. When we arrived the hostess informed us that brunch was now over and they were serving little bites. However, she made an exception and said if we ordered quickly we could order off the brunch menu. She sat us at the worst table. WE spoke to our server who told us we could move to the open table outside. The hostess came out after we ordered and said the table was promised to another party. Since brunch was officially over and dinner did not start for 2 1/2 hrs, I am not sure who she could be referring to. After discussion back and forth, we stayed at outside table. Our food came immediately, and we were done in 20 min!!!!! We felt very rushed and underappreciated. I never got my bellini, yet when the bill came it was on there. It also took 4 attempts before we got correct bill as they kept handing us someone else's bill.. We were very much looking forward to dining there, but it was very disappointing!

Santina is a party. Feels fun, and like you might run into friends. However, service is erratic.

Some food came cold, some food didn't come, and some was great.

Service was nice but slow. There was a large party in the main room so it was extremely loud. The Kitchen was slow. We asked 4 times for bread before finally getting it, reason Is that our bread needed to be
toasted because it was probably not fresh. We asked a second time for bread & took them fifteen minutes to bring it
At one of the tables next to us they delivered dishes that were for another one. On the other side, they took forever to bring a starter, the kitchen was probably too busy cooking for the big party in the main room.

Our starter was a burrata, which was ok but we did not love it. I found it a bit too salty.
For mains we asked for an (overpriced) eggplant parmigiana that was certainly not worth: nothing like the real deal, too much unnecessary parsley & was not even warm. It was very salty.
In the tuna salad it was very difficult to find the tuna. The dressing was too salty so we had to ask to prepare again & serve with the dressing on the side.

Overall, the place was nice although loud, service was very kind & tried to compensate for all the above, but in the end one eats the food & the rest is accesory to it. We left concerned about how salty all dishes were (a starter, a salad, a main).

We entered at 2:15, Easter Sunday afternoon, very crowded.
Santinia hostess team were great. Handled our reservation perfectly, on time, never showed stress, very professional.
We had 2 wheelchairs in our party and they actually gave us 2 seating choices.
Food, a brunch menu was very good. Everything very tasty different and well prepared.
I have to say it was not inexpensive especially considering the quantity.
Some food highlights: A fish sandwich, a chicken dish where the chicken was so tender, all the ice cream deserts, espresso.

I have ben sick the whole night because of the plate I ate at Sabrina (blue crab spaghetti). I guess the crab was not fresh (a shame for a small plate at $29) ... This is truly scandalous for a restaurant of that standing... NEVER AGAIN !

I always love Santina. Great, fun 'vibe' and delicious, innovative flavors. My only critique is that some dishes are a little overpriced. $27 for 3 meatballs.. at $9 a meatball - that's steep! But, it was tasty, and I'll no doubt be back.

Went for lunch/brunch on Good Friday, so may have been busier and louder than usual. Food was excellent and so was service. Choices of beers were a bit limited. It may be a little overpriced for what you get.

Nice place under High Line. Food too spicy far from being italian or typical Costa Amalfitana food. The menu is short and after choosing some were missing. The rice is just that, no risotto at all. Big dissapointed with italian food.

Expensive. Quality-price not good at all.
Not enough dishes to choose. Small menu.

We ordered: Frito misto, it means everything they are not going to use that day, in tempura. I've found even lemon slices,yes IN TEMPURA too among with other "sea food" and veggies.

Ribeye: overcooked, thin and super spicy. Not worth the 31$ we've paid for it.

Spaguetti arrabiata with lobster: not impressive.

Cocktails and ambiance were good, the place is beautiful and very close to other areas to have some drinks after dinner.
