Lets start with the positives - nice venue, above average service, and carbonara was good. OK the negatives - I was told to try the italian smoked haddock cakes - for 20 pounds i thought it must be creative - it was a crusty pub meal deep fried two inch long stick of haddock with a couple of leaves of rocket and a small jar of tomato paste to dip that tasted like bertolli (no offence unilever). Once I paid I told the manager who basically showed no interest in his poor product, although he agree it was not his favourite. Then they attempt to charge 12.5 percent discretionary service charge on top of the meal, plus a cover charge which they also don't disclose before you sit down. Poor product that does not deserve to be in business.

A place to see and be seen, London’s Santini is a family run restaurant with bags of style. Originally opened way back in 1984, Santini has gone from strength to strength. A favourite haunt of top professional and celebrity clients for many years, Santini has an elegant, sophisticated atmosphere in a modern, sleek setting. Summer time dining at Santini is a must, a pretty courtyard dotted with olive trees the ideal setting for a relaxed lunch. With a mainly Venetian flavour, the Santini menu celebrates the simplicity of Italian cookery with the fresh, light flavours of the very best ingredients in every dish.
