40 Italian Pizza Covent Garden

SquareMeal Review of Sartori

Hidden away on a side street between Covent Garden and Leicester Square, this little Italian is getting quite a reputation for its wood-fired pizzas: “real quality”, notes one fan; “some of the best in town”, says another. These Neapolitan-style goodies come with properly crisp bases and all manner of “outstanding” toppings, from margherita, marinara and quattro formaggi to vesuvio (tomato, salame, mozzarella and egg) or siciliana with sautéed aubergines and parmesan – you can order ‘al metro’ if you want, and it’s also worth checking out the regional panuozzi (pizza-dough ‘sandwiches’). To start, garlicky mussels with chilli and tomato come highly recommended, and there are plenty of pastas too. The long narrow dining room feels friendly with its banquettes along the walls, wine displays and colourful artwork, while service ticks all the boxes for warmth, speed and efficiency.

Very lively, casual dining experience – literally next door to Leicester Square tube station – how convenient!. We were after a casual, authentic Italian meal. We didn't have much time as we were going to see a show in Catherine Street. From our table in the window, had a great view of the street and could indulge in a bit of people watching. The restaurant was buzzing with customers and all the food looked delicious. Staff were friendly and efficient. We both had the theatre menu – very tasty, simple and well presented Italian staples – two courses for just under £11 – bargain – I had grilled vegetables with balsamic vinegar dressing followed by Lasagne. There was an interesting and varied a la carte menu too. Wine was available by the glass – three different sizes of glass – how civilised! Highly recommend this friendly and buzzing restaurant.

I had lunch in Sartori with a group of friends on Friday and overall was very impressed. Firstly great location tucked into a side street between Covent Garden and Leicester Square. Restaurant has a very nice look & feel and good atmosphere. We got a genuine welcome when we arrived and the menu is very good. Some real traditional Italian dishes (pastas, fish etc) and a great selection of pizzas. For starters we had the octopus (2) and Mussels with chilli (2) and both were excellent. For main course we had pizzas (3) and the selection of fried fish (1) and again really good. The pizzas are of real quality, have a wonderful crispy base and the toppings were outstanding. The service was efficient and attentive and overall it was a very good experience. I will go back here for sure. Nice to have found a really good Italian in this area.

Great Italian restaurant in the heart of theatre land. Have had many very good meals here prior to theatre and although very busy the food and service are always extremely good. Highly recommend

I first went to this restaurant with some friend from italy who had been here and liked it. So my thought was “it can't be wrong since even Italians like it” and well I wasn't disappointed. I went back with some friends who were visiting London same experience, great food, great staff and reasonable price I thought.
