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.

Excellent, authentic Italian food, best clams I’ve had for ages and every type of fresh fish you need. John Dory was delicious. Service was excellent too with friendly knowledgeable staff. Looking forward to going back soon.

Santo Mare is an excellent restaurant. We were able to sit outside on the terrace on a sunny day - perfect for lunch. The quality of the produce was superb. The only issue for my wife and me was the portions sizes were too large for us . Service was spot on.

Nice service people friendly! Food good but with some critic if I have to be honest! One of our fish was re warmed and not cook at the last as consequence chewy and hard! Location very nice but incredibile hot and too closed to people consider Covid restriction I was not able to talk with my husband without neighbour listen anything I was saying! Music also too loud so to talk you must raise your voice anyway! Overall nice but not 5 star! I’ll go back to give a second chance because I’m sure it can much better!

Not for me I’m afraid. Lowest price bottle of wine £75 is just not sense! Lovely place though. Disappointed in the food too. Service excellent.

We were so impressed by how good the desserts are. We had pistachio ice cream and tiramisu which were outstanding.
Their fritto misto was also beautifully deep fried and light.
The pasta courses where really nice, but no wow effect.
All round great experience and lovely BIG portions

Amazing food and outstanding service in a lovely setting. You feel really spoiled. The wine list is superb but only on the expensive side. Will recomend to add some options starting on £35 (not on £65 per 75c bottle).

This place is incredibly overpriced for what it offers. The food is good but not that special; and service is very ineffective. I had to walk in to order something twice.

Remains my favourite spot pre lockdown and post lockdown as well.
Friendly, unpretentious service, great fish. Try Umbrian wines - Bramito ( great value at 52 gbp). Cervaro - a bit expensive 200 gbp.

Difficult to give a honest review as we were outside and it was very cold.
My starter was Sea Bass Carpacio
followed by Linguini both very delicious.
My partners Artichoke with Parmesan
was disappointing as it was very tough to eat. The second course he had was very good and service was attentive.We found the wine very overpriced at £15 for a glass of rosé.
