Bravi! Mangiato benissimo
I thought the food was very good - tasty. Although my husband said his tuna was dry - which was probably true.
Overall ambience was fine and the service excellent.
Nice addition to the neighborhood. Pricey yes, so not for just a simple family meal, but celebrating an event like Father's Day? Perfect. Staff is friendly and makes you feel welcome and valued. If you are happy to leave yourself in their hands they will guide you through the menu and options and you will end up with an incredible meal- fresh, simple, delicious- like being at the shore. We had a wonderful evening and will add it to our rota. Picture sitting down with a lovely glass of chilled wine, a large platter of frittino misto with a little squeeze of lemon....then perhaps some grilled fish as a main and leave room for dessert- son claims it is best ice cream he has ever had.
This is the best seafood restaurant in London.
The quality and the freshness of the fish can’t be compared to any other restaurant in London.
It’s not cheap but the experience is worth it every penny.
Outstanding from start to finish! The ambiance and decor are charming and sophisticated — theming is outstanding and no detail was overlooked in the design. Service shines — the staff is charming, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Food is perfectly prepared (and delicious) and wine pairing is spot on. The pistachio gelato deserves it’s own food category and stands alone. Don’t miss this special corner of Italy in London ... it’s worthy of many happy returns!
We chose to go to Santo Mare as an alternative to Scott’s. Open Table rated Santo Marr as expensive and almost as good as Scott’s .
Well it is not.
This restaurant is very disappointing: salty food, fish not cooked well, service is very much up in the air.
First and last time I go to Santo Mare restaurant.
Everything was excellent
Best seafood cuisine I’ve ever tried, they have top quality ingredients and are masters in cooking them just perfectly!
You wouldn’t expect to find this gem in Marylebone, lovely and elegant, fish at its finest!
In love with the guazzetto seabass and the pistacchio ice cream, will come back soon!
Gorgeous and elegant, the atmosphere is so joyful! The music, the lights and the kind staff are so pleasant, obviously the food is the masterpiece but everything together make this place a must if you like Italian and seafood cuisine!
Linguine pasta with langoustines and mint are my favourite dish ever!
Very nice experience. They fly the fish from Italy and the quality is impressive.
A ray of light in the monotony of london restaurants, I just can’t believe I finally found an authentic and crazy good Italian fish restaurant here. They take fish from Italy every day and you can tell from their fish counter, amazing! Go there once and you’ll go back again and again!
The restaurant features fish that is flown in daily from Italy. So one can be sure the fish is fresh. On the other hand, the portions are very small, and recipes that are not particularly creative. I had risotto with fish and lobster - only the fish and lobster tidbits were difficult to find. My friend had spaghetti with clams, very standard - some oil and garlic with very small clams. Another friend had cod, but again, very small portions but plated pleasingly. Basically, overpriced for what you get. A nice small touch was the hand clipped fresh basil for the dipping olive oil. The atmosphere was lovely, and the service fine, but not a restaurant we'd go back to on our net trip to London.
They’re new and learning. Very attentive staff (except our waiter, who was a dud). Nice simple setting. Very nice bread and salad, but the waiter basically ignored our food requests and brought our mains as he would have liked them, after which manager comp’d one of our mains & apologized. So A+ for the effort by the managers (restaurant & bar), but room to improve on food delivery.
Dinner was outstanding. The fish was so fresh and beautifully prepared. The service was attentive but not at all intrusive. This restaurant has been added to our list of favorites.
A wonderful italian restaurant, I would say that one of the best of London. The fish is the king here, even in many of the pasta dishes!
Awesome place with great seafood, good location. Great cocktails too. Will definitely be back.
Pricey but worth it: truly excellent seafood, great service and a very pleasant ambience.
Great fish meal here!
Arrived at 7.30 and served the starter within 10 minutes ( amazing red prawns Carpaccio). Very nice the idea to serve focaccia and bread with fresh basil.
The pasta was one of the best I had in my life ( langoustine and mint).
When is not possible to get any better I have ordered the Tiramisu ( order it and see the show with your eyes).
This is not a cheap restaurant ( bill was about 200 for two people including a nice Conte della vipera from antinori).
Worth every penny.
What a wonderful experience!
Very impressed with the quality of the ingredients.
So far the best seafood restaurant in London.
Had a superb meal here tonight.
Fresh fish, great sides, felt like eating in Italy.
The tiramisu has to be tasted ....... the best we’ve ever eaten.
Superb. You eat like in Italy ( on the beach).
New favourite spot for seafood in London, I love this place, its atmosphere and their food, no words! It’s all so authentic and well cured, will come back soon!
Great spot to taste some real Italian seafood! No words for their raw starters and pastas! Highly recommended! Service is great as well
What you would look for on the seaside in Italy, you can now find it in Marylebone! Raw seafood is just amazingly fresh at Santo Mare, we also shared a sea bream and it was not only super good but also lovely served! One of my favs already!
Great ambience! Linguine with langoustine and mint simply amazing.. cozy restaurant, outstanding food.
What a great restaurant! The quality of the fish they use is incredible. The waiter told me they fly it daily from Italy.
That’s impressive. So far this is the best seafood restaurant in London. If they manage to keep that level of quality this place will become one of the best around soon.
Had business dinner with 4 out of country guests.
Crudo and grilled fish was very good.
It’s hard to compete in overcrowded London restaurant space. If they can keep good fresh fish they will become one of the best spots in London.
Great dinner with friends! The red mullet carpaccio was great, linguine with the scampi and mint like in Italy. The best tiramisù I ever had.
Best Seafood restaurant around the area.
Lovely place, delicious fresh seafood and top service, nothing more to ask to this new classy and smooth restaurant! Santo Mare is what you were looking for and never found in London till today! I fell in love for the fish counter and their risotto with seafood, would go there once a week!
Uno dei migliori ristoranti che abbia trovato a Londra, lo staff è molto preparato e l’ambiente elegante ed accattivante. Il cibo è autentico, sapori delicati e mai pesanti, una vera delizia! Il pesce viene scelto dal banco e cucinato espresso, fantastico se ti ricordi di essere a Londra!
I’ll remember this restaurant for every next trip I’ll make to London. Must go for every seafood lover, everything freshly caught and shipped directly from Italy! Nothing more to say!
Ps the venue really looks like an authentic classy Italian private club, it’s wonderful!
Unforgettable experience! Impressive quality of the food!
Fell in love with Santo Mare since I stepped inside the venue! Lovely decor and ambience, perfect for a romantic dinner 😍 Food was perfect, The tagliatelle with lobster literally stunned me!
Ristorante niente male nel centro di Londra, cucina di alta qualità e materie prime di scelta elevatissima! Mi è sembrato davvero di essere in Italia, ho gustato una linguina con scampi e menta da urlo! Carta dei vini molto ampia e servizio di primo ordine! Tornerò sicuramente!
Emotional experience! The fish is delicious! Restaurant was very busy but the service was great!
Great cocktails as well!
Amazing dinner experience, the fish in top, you can see with your eyes that is not farm raised! Service is attentive, the tiramisù the best I ever had!
Was at Santo Mare for a business dinner and it really impressed my colleagues, this a plus for sure, the atmosphere is beautiful! And food is no exception, I would have had a second plate of Linguine Langoustines and Mint if ididn’t look too greedy 😂 excellent new restaurant!
Best Italian ever in Marylebone, the venue is so beautifully decorated and the fish counter is a nice touch to the classy atmosphere! Food delicious, it goes without saying! Red king prawns and langoustines you can eat them raw as you were on the seaside and you’re in central London, crazy!
