A word from Sartori
A traditional Italian restaurant in the very centre of London, Sartori Restaurant is situated on Great Newport Street, just a minute’s walk from Leicester Square. With a lively, chilled out vibe and modern, cosy décor in earthy tones, this is the perfect post work stop off, allowing Londoners to let their hair down with a cocktail or two alongside excellent, high quality Italian food. Taking in the best of the country’s culinary favourites, Sartori prides itself on offering traditional dishes, a true expression of the vast and varied food landscape of Italy. Of particular note are Sartori’s utterly authentic pizzas, cooked in the restaurant’s custom built Strazzullo Michele wood-fired forno, described by blogger Young & Foodish as "the Stradivarius of pizza ovens".

Diner Reviews
  • "Having booked tickets for theatre we then searched for nearby restaurant. Staff were friendly, helpful and food arrived promptly. There was a wide selection to choose from, including a pre theatre menu but we went for the a la carte. Delicious spaghetti vongole served with a dish for the clam shells and hand wipes and a veal dish with lovely Italian crispy potatoes. Fortunately we had decided against a starter and just managed to squeeze in desserts. Again staff were on hand to advise us - they could obviously see that we take our desserts very seriously! We will definitely being going back next time we go to the theatre or just happen to be passing."

  • "Having booked the restaurant through open table the staff were well aware of our booking. We had great service from every member of staff. Set menu's had enough to choose from and food arrived promptly without being rushed. Tasty and good value - great for a meal in the West End at any time. Good value for money as well! Will definitely be recommending to friends and family."

  • "Great service , enthusiasm and good cheer, in a venue ideal for the West. End , and good Italian food to boot, with plenty of variety and innovation."

  • "You know when Italians are trying to get into this restaurant that you have chosen a good one. The place was busy, so although would have liked noise levels a bit lower the ambience was good. The choice of food was pretty good, from 1 metre pizzas to swordfish and steak. The service was efficient and friendly. Once our food arrived we were not disappointed, it was fresh and very tasty. Overall this restaurant was excellent, the food was delicious sand great value, I would recommend, and I would go back again."

  • "If you are looking for a good quality Italian meal at a reasonable cost, then this is the place for you. Have visited more than once and always find friendly service as well as good food. Probably not ideal for a romantic meal as the atmosphere is lively, but for London, good value."

  • "Our family of 5 visited Sartori on a Wednesday night at 7pm by 8pm restaurant was getting very busy, when we left at 9pm there were lots of people waiting for a table so is obviously a very popular restaurant. Food was lovely and we didn't have to wait long for it to be served. My daughter and I had seafood linguine which was very tasty, my partner had calzone which was huge and my sons had lasagne and penne pasta with tomato sauce which were also very tasty and portions were a good size. Would definitely eat here again."

  • "The food and service was great as always! Went with a vegetarian friend so are the veggie options which were really tasty!"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "The best pizza I have had in London so far. Margherita must try, order the pizza a metro if you are many. They make the bread themselves and it s amazing compared to London standard. Very friendly staff and quick service. Always busy better to book in advance. I would advise for a dinner with friends not for a romance, too crowded."

  • "Booked Sartori for a birthday dinner with female friends. Chose it because of central location and reasonably priced menu with very wide range of dishes. The restaurant is very modern in design and very lively which suited us but could be too noisy for some. The service was prompt and friendly and the food delicious - between us we had fish and meat, vegetarian and pasta dishes. All were very generous portions at sensible prices. The bill was very reasonable - starters, mains, coffee, 2 bottles of wine and prosecco aperitifs for just under 50 per head including service. I would certainly come again for a cheery atmosphere and authentic Italian food."

  • "The food was amazing, the pizza I had reminded me of Rome."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Had a lovely meal at Sartori. Pizza perfect as were all the other food choices."

  • "food and service are good but the noise makes conversation difficult"
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "After stumbling across this place amidst the hubbub of Leicester Square tourists we were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't just another trap. Really good pizza and really good value, the staff were friendly and attentive, we didn't feel rushed, it was a lovely meal."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Don't know who had reviewed this place before, they made out it was some kind of 'great italian', it's really not. It's a pretty cheap not particularly great Italian restaurant right near Leicester Square. Generally speaking wouldn't ever go here again, unless I absolutely had to. Not inedible, just worse than a pizza express or equivalent."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "We love coming here, with or without the children. The Italian staff are always courteous and efficient, and the food consistently delicious. Amazing such a restaurant exists in the heart of Leicester Square."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Fabulous food, a good wine list and a nice lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. When it comes to pizza I am very fussy as I spent much of my childhood in Italy. This pizza truly lived to my expectations, and I know the whole group I was with agreed that it is the best pizza we had come across in the Uk."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Busy, good pizza and fast service - ideal for pre-theatre food. Nothing outstanding but good value - recommended."
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "I dined with relatives - there were 6 of us who ordered a mixture of meat, fish, pasta and pizza. Overall the food was decent - the meat tender and fish well cooked, pasta was rich and satisfying. Though I struggle to find anything memorable about the food or ambience, and would not readily return except if looking for a convenient place to dine in the West End."
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "Not much to say about a restaurant where I systematically feel..home. Quality of food, warmth of service, overall atmosphere.. Just a few steps away from Italy! :)"
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "Everyone loved the food, there was a great choice and attentive but unpushy service. However the decor had so many hard surfaces it was a bit echoey and therefore difficult to have a good conversation on a long table."
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "Although busy the service was excellent, the choices amazing, the food delicious and the cocktails were lovely. A perfect start to the evening! "
    dined on 04/06/2014
  • "Sartori is a fine example of a classic Italian trattoria albeit with a comfortable, modern interior. We ate there one hectic Saturday lunch as a family with two school age children. The extensive menu of favourites (pasta, pizza, starters and mains) provides something for everyone and all the dishes we requested were well cooked and enjoyed. The service was efficient and welcoming - I'm not sure if the restaurant is family run but it felt like it. Highly recommended"
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "When we arrived our initial impressions were mixed. Upstairs looked nice but downstairs lacked atmosphere and was set up for exceptionally large groups. Menu was comprehensive and when the food arrived, we felt reassured that it was good authentic Italian food. Note to self - the portions were large for both starters and main courses. Considering the group of 20 or more sat behind us - service was prompt and friendly. We enjoyed our suppa club date here - just not so keen on the large parties - felt very touristy and loud but we all agreed that we would go back but would ask for a better table. "
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "We have eaten here a number of times. An oasis of great food in the west end. Special lunchtime menu was good value but still proper portions. No kids menu though."
    dined on 28/05/2014
  • "I think the pizza is very nice here. Recommended. Extra toppings a bit pricey though"
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Great find from Open Table recommendations. This restaurant looks fairly ordinary from the outside but the food is simply exquisite. Have the fish casserole but make sure you have left room as it is as generous as it is delicious. Everything seemed fresh and the tastes were truly Italian. I will definitely become a regular, five of us dined, we all had something different and every course was exceptional."
    dined on 14/05/2014
  • "Lovely food just possibly too much choice on the menu! Took us abouf an hour to decide what we wanted! But all in all great service, food and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend"
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • " Had a post theatre meal and was impressed with both the quality of the food and the service. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was exceptionally busy but no compromise on service. Comprehensive menu with authentic Italian ingredients. Location great and would definitely eat there again and recommend. One small observation, we ate early at 7.30 pm and there were people queuing for tables throughout our meal. As the demand was so high, felt under a little pressure from staff to eat up and get out. Understandable I guess as the table could have been filled several times over."

  • "I love their pizza. It is the best one in London! "
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "Great for pre theatre, wine and food both good value "
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "As an Italian foodie, there is nothing better than feeling safe going to a place that will be able to fulfill any kind of crave.. Whether it is pasta, pizza or other Italian delicacies, Sartori is just a guarantee! Highly, always recommended. Just make sure you are adequately hungry to enjoy :D"
    dined on 27/04/2014
  • "The staffs are very friendly. We ordered three starter, four main courses, and four desserts, none of the dishes disappointed us! Very very good taste. Will recommend this restaurant to everyone I know for sure. "
    dined on 24/04/2014
  • "We didn't have the set lunch but it is obviously good value. Food was very nice as usual."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "Will definitely come back to try the pizzas, they are legendary!"

    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Love the food at sartorial, been a few times! Authentic Italian..... Is quite a small restaurant though so can get a bit loud when full!"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Our party of 6 were well looked after and the food came in time for us to get through it comfortably before heading for the theatre. All our different choices (pasta, pizza etc) looked good and were equally enjoyed. The white wine (from the Marche Region) at the top of the list was excellent."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "They usually make a good pizza, but this time was undercooked, and the staff politely tried to push us out before we wanted to. Good value and reasonably authentic italian place, just doesn't shine under pressure."
