Sartoria 333

Squaremeal Review of Sartoria ?

Time moves relatively slowly when it comes to Mayfair’s classic restaurants, and Sartoria’s thorough refurb (along with the arrival of chef/patron Francesco Mazzei from L’Anima) is still news on Savile Row. The place now looks pin-sharp, of course, if a little stately with its heavy furniture and hotel-neutral palette – although Mazzei’s emphatically “wonderful” cooking elevates the experience to something approaching “faultless”, with back-up from an “incredible” wine list. He’s not afraid of simplicity, stuffing romanesco peppers with salt cod or pairing brown and white crab with green apple and pickled radish. Like his well-dressed patrons, he’s not averse to the luxurious, either: try Grana Padano risotto with saffron and duck livers, generous veal milanese for two, or slow-roasted Black Pig belly with pickled vegetables and black pudding. To finish, insist on zabaglione – think of it as keeping a craft skill alive, not drinking a bowl of expensive custard. Meanwhile, in the late-licence bar, it’s snacks and Negronis a go-go.

Since the reincarnation, this restaurant impresses consistently. I've only been for business lunches for which the service is efficient and the spacing means you're not overheard. But the food has been a pleasant surprise on all three occasions.

More good than very good

by   platinum reviewer (93)

Feb 2016

Editor's pick Given that the French Guide Michelin has had the courage to award 54 new stars in its 2016 edition, it is encouraging that UK chefs are continuing to work towards ever higher standards knowing that it is unlikely that their efforts will affect the increasingly negative and increasingly unjustifiable ratio of stars between the UK and France, even though, whatever The Sunday Times may say, there are precious few chefs in this country who would actually refuse a star or two or three. So, should Francesco...

Post make-over

by   platinum reviewer (85)

Feb 2016

Editor's pick We arrived for dinner and had drinks in the bar first - a glossy space, welcoming and a good spot for a catch up. Moving into the dining room, we all liked the wing back chairs and comfortable environment, and settled in for a good dinner with lovely copper pots of breads and fab olive oil. Actually, it was a bit patchy. The winter salad with crunchy raw veg, soft puree of pulses and quails egg was enjoyable, the tortellini with Marsala broth was said to be very good, and the seafood with Sardinian...

Very enjoyable meal - quality excellent.Good choices and variety. Service was very attentive but the Restaurant was not full at the time. I am not sure how well the staff would cope if every table were to be taken. Would certainly be happy to return.

I first ate here over ten years ago and for no particular reason had failed to return since. However, for any restaurant to be able to maintain consistently high standards in a city with a dining culture as competitive as London's is testament to the fact that Sartoria must be doing something right. The sensation on walking in is one of comfort, namely discreet but far from overbearingly formal luxury and service. The main dining area is beautifully light and spacious with the tables set well apart....

Had spent my own minutes with friends last week there. Can say surely this is a right choice to have authentic Italian cuisine. Service is really good. I loved there. Delicious foodies. Pork belly, castellucio lentils, braised chicory, salsa verde are really tasteful. Now the location is offering some special deals, I received the status from dinner-deals.com where the place, I booked.

    The Food Judge :: Sartoria Old dog new tricks

    Unless it has been shoved into a quiet corner, it seems that the tailor’s dummy has been done for in the refurb; that tailor’s dummy which sat in the heart of the restaurant, letting you know that you were in the middle of the the hand-made garment district, as if the Savile Row address didn’t offer enough of a clue.
    Sartoria of old was truly Sartoria of the old: a tired, conventional, serviceable Italian, plying its trade for years without feeling the need to innovate or offer anything adventurous. Indeed, so inoffensive and unremarkable was it when I visited last year for review purposes, that I decided that...

    THIS LITTLE PIGGY LOVES FOOD! :: This Little Piggy Loves Food Sartoria Mayfair

    It was my husband&s birthday at the weekend so I wanted to book somewhere special and I immediately came up with the idea of Sartoria. Even though Sartoria has been around for many years, it has recently been revamped with the arrival of a new chef patron (Francesco Mazzei from the renowned Italian restaurant L&Amina) and a smart refurbishment. As well as the main restaurant, there is a heated terrace, a delicious looking cicchetti counter, two private dining rooms and a wine cellar.

    We originally booked for the evening but then changed it for lunch - I am seven months pregnant now and so going out in the...

    The Critics Guide :: Sartoria London UK

    The Sartoria restaurant, part of the D&D Group, is ideally situated on Savile Row; with such a great location, it is no surprise that this restaurant is one of the coolest places to be seen in Mayfair.
    We arrived a little early for dinner, having heard that Sartoria’s cocktails are something else, so we settled in for a couple of aperitifs. Firstly, we opted for a Limoncellopolitan, which was a blend of Absolut Kurant, Limoncello, Cointreau, lemon and cranberry juice; and a Sartoria Sling – Tanqueray, sauvignon, muscat and elderflower.
