About

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".

Just a wonderful casual place for outstanding Italian food. Eat here at least once on every trip to London and never disappointed. Pizza and pasta are both delicious and the hardest part of eating here is deciding which to order.
One of the very interesting and reassuring things about eating at Sartori is realizing that, as an English speaker, you are in a distinct minority with Italian being language of choice!

An ideal pre theatre restaurant. Good tasty meal at a reasonable price served quickly by polite and friendly staff. Will use again when a taste of Italy takes my fancy.

Great food. Great service. Went for my daughter's 4th birthday to get pizza (Outstanding!). Went back the next night to try what we saw others got the first night. Waiter teased my son with the wine and to pay the bill which he thought was hysterical. So great for family too. Thank you Sartori for being part of my family's vacation!

Despite Open Table not sending my booking through, they were happy to accommodate us in a busy Friday lunch.
Food was excellent, service got a bit slow at the end but would happily recommend.

Visited Sartori for the second time, an anniversary lunch prior to Buckingham Palace tour. Second visit even better than the first, a new white wine to remember, the best seafood pasta main we have ever had, a delicious desert and a superb Italian expresso to finish !

Fair restaurant. Food was good on the every day menu but a bit of a poor uninspiring selection on the set menu. Ditched that in the end and paid a bit more to have more choice. Restaurant was incredibly noisy. It was central London so was to be expected. Great location for the theatre. Less than 10 min walk from the Novello Theatre. Would recommend!

Food was ok portions a bit small. We ate off the theatre menu. No children's menu is a problem because they charge what they want. My daughter had a half portion but she wasn't charged half price.

Second visit and didn't disappoint. Good location for pre theatre meal and really excellent value. One small criticism - portions were very generous so didn't have room for a desert but a lemoncello was well received. Staff were very helpful and friendly too

I was slightly disappointed with my meal. The restaurant itself was easy to find and had a lovely ambience about it. The tables were slightly too close together.

I ordered garlic bread with tomato and oregano which was like a mini pizza but it had way too much tomato on it that was all that I could taste. For my main meal I ordered lasagne which was nice but it wasn’t a very good portion, the pannacota was delicious. One of the other guests had spaghettini and meatballs which they said needed to have a few more meatballs as there was more spaghetti.

For what we ate I thought it was slightly overpriced.

Excellent authentic Italian food. Great value for money. Great service. Book 12.30 slot if you are going to a matinee. Portions are very generous. I would suggest sharing starters. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely go back. Thank you.

I've been to Sartori quite a few times now - nice feel and really authentic, tasty and filling Italian food that tastes amazing. And I have been to Italy quite a lot and also to some very average British Italian restaurants, so trust me!
Staff are friendly and service is good. Would definitely recommend.

Ate here before going to see The Lion King. Good selection of items on the menu, all the food I saw looked good. I ordered a glass of wine and it never came so I asked again and it still took maybe 5 min. to get a glass of wine and then I was charged for 2 glasses on the bill which they adjusted when I pointed it out. Overall, food was good and came quickly and was a decent price for central London. Don't think I would eat here again though, just didn't stand out to me and there are so many other places to try.

We always eat at Sartori prior to visiting the theatre. The pre theatre menu is incredible value with tasty food and quick service. I was being very picky this time and asked for grilled fish with grilled vegetables....although not on the menu they adapted one of the dishes.
Highly recommend

I went to this restaurant twice during this week, once for lunch and the second time for dinner with colleagues. Everytime the food was AMAZING (pizza, pasta and desserts), real Italian food which is not so easy to find in this city. The service as well was brilliant: everybody smiling, polite and very attentive, especially the waiter Luca. I'll be back soon :)
