Santo Mare is born from our idea of rediscovering and offering on our table in London the true Italian seafood cuisine and its tastes. For this reason, we sail every day through the Tyrrhenian Sea, with our fishing boats back in Italy, to catch the best quality food. We then ship daily the fruits of our efforts to London and provide our clients with the chance to live an authentic experience. Tradition, authenticity, quality and freshness are the commandments that we follow every day, with the aim of making Santo Mare thelandmark for seafood cuisine lovers in London.

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.

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!

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.

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 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!

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.

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!

It’s a special restaurant. The waiters take good care of the customers and want to make sure you are happy.
The menu is different from other Italian restaurants around . They have only fish. I believe the food can be compared with Scott’s and Milos.
Make sure you try the Tiramisu to share.
