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
There were exactly zero restaurants we enjoy hanging out in Meatpacking until Santina arrived. Now there’s one.
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
Amazing gluten free bread and I’m not gluten free
The food was mediocre, at best. They must have gotten a deal on cherry tomatoes because everything we ordered was smothered in them. Salmon was over cooked and steak was so fatty, it was nearly inedible.
Cute place, though air conditioning was ineffective and server was adorable.
Will not be going back to Santina.
We had a very energetic and enthusiastic server who in general was very attentive. The food was very average and for what they are charging is a really poor value. Yes they are in an awesome neighborhood/location, but the pricing does not warrant what is being served.
Excruciatingly slow service and kept forgetting drinks we ordered. Arrived at 9 and didn’t get our entrees until midnight. At that point we weren’t even hungry. Not sure if I would go back.
Went for my birthday and had a great experience here! Staff had very warm personalities and went the extra mile to ensure you were satisfied. The food was so good - from reading other reviews, I was worried about the portion sizes but the plates were perfect and more than enough to fill my group and I up! Definitely try the lobster fettuccine if you like spicy foods. 10/10 a great spot
Amazing food. Fresh ingredients and excellent service
Great night celebrating my daughters birthday!
The place is really cute and great to have some drinks. The service was outstanding and we had a lot of fun. However, the food was just ok!
They did not have good AC, it was extremely hot in there.
Everything was great as usual except the noise level. :)
Water was warm. Linguine was good. Tortellini portion was small. Wine was good. A little too much money for the food offered. Great service and friendly staff.
I planned a girls weekend to NYC. Dinner was amazing. We enjoyed it so much, we ended up returning the next day for brunch. Pleasant staff, great food and ambiance. We will be back again.
Very good food! Certainly quite pricey but worth it!
Food was fresh and terrific and our waiter was great.
The eggplant is a must. Beautiful restaurant, great service.
Arrived at 7.45 and put our order in right away. Starters came right out, but something clearly went wrong in the kitchen, with the mains not arriving until 9.15, a full 90 minutes after we placed our order. Delicious, but hardly punctual. #servicefailure
tasty food nice location !
Loved their brunch, atmosphere, location, and price point! Will definitely go back.
The portions were very small for the price. Overall good atmosphere but not worth it.
Delicious, healthy food and great service at Santina!
Amazing food... every dish was great! Will definitely go back for the inventive cuisine, fun and relaxed atmosphere; and excellent casual service.
The food was good. Sound level indoors was deafening. Outside was fine but it’s a little grimy sitting under the High Line.
They don’t have an adequate number of bathrooms and there was no soap in the bathroom— which was not remedied. FWIW, you can run over to Bubbys if you want bathrooms and soap. 🤨
Great food and atmosphere!
Loved our meal here! Great after a long day of sightseeing. Delicious food, great cocktails. Waiter was just okay, sort of a dud. Pricey but delish!! Right next door to The Whitney!
It was a gluten free paradise! We walked the hi line and then stopped for a light lunch. Our server was extremely professional and the food was delicious.
I took my friend to lunch to celebrate her bday We loved the food and our waiter was excellent. We can’t wait to go again!!!!!!
Loved it! Great food and service
great place, love the food and the location. we had a blast
From the warm reception at the maitre’d (where he graciously offered to mail two envelopes for me), to the excellent cocktails, to an attentive and excellent waiter, to perfect bread, main course, and exquisite dessert, the entire experience was so superior that we stayed there from 12:30 PM until 4:00!!!
