Our Story

Too many times, we have seen the term ‘authentic’ be used to describe or promote an experience that would be simply alien to someone in our home country.

With this in mind, from the very beginning, SANTI set out to replicate as closely as possible the experience of a Ristorante Pizzeria that you might find anywhere in Italy.

A relaxing and comfortable environment, great wine, exceptional food and a service to match. No expense spared in ingredients and no corner cut in preparing everything just right.

Our first restaurant opened in East Village – former Athlete’s Village of the London 2012 Olympic Games – in July 2016 to rave reviews from the local community.

In April 2018 we opened our second location in the heart of Watford town centre.


Our menu showcases our favourite dishes from assorted regional cuisines, that we prepare fresh to order. These dishes were selected to carefully represent the broad spectrum of Italian gastronomy, with our alternating weekly specials highlighting lesser-known hidden gems from specific regions of the country.
