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. Because these cocktails were so beautiful and went down so well, for round two we opted for a Solero, consisting of Absolute raspberry, Sambuca Luxardo, Chambord and passion fruit puree; and a Fragoloso – Absolute vanilla, limoncello, lemonade and strawberry puree.

We’re very glad we did leave time for pre-dinner cocktails, as they were absolutely delicious. Sitting in the bar area, watching the bar man work his magic was a lovely extension of our evening. It’s fantastic to see the time and effort the Sartoria team put into their cocktails – each one is a masterpiece. These are not the kind of cocktails that arrive at your table a couple of minutes after ordering – these cocktails are timely creations, and you can almost taste the care and passion put into them.

“It is worth noting that the service at Sartoria is impeccable, and we were particularly blown away by the Sommelier.”

After our drinks we were shown to our table. The menu was impressive. Head Chef, Lukas Pfaff, has carefully selected his menu staying true to his classic Italian roots, whilst bringing each dish bang up to date. We went with the buffalo mozzarella with marinda potatoes and basil; and the tiger prawn linguini to start. They were both delectable and were presented beautifully.

For our main courses we opted for the Ayrshire rose veal Milanese with spinach and lemon; and the fillet of beef served with burrata cheese and black olive puree. Everything was cooked perfectly; the beef was melt-in-the-mouth and the veal beautifully presented with perfect, delicate flavours. For a side dish, we ordered some thick cut, triple cooked potatoes that were to die for.

After all of that, we were a little disappointed that we didn’t have room for dessert, but we certainly left exceptionally satisfied and with the view to visit again very soon!

It is worth noting that the service at Sartoria is impeccable, and we were particularly blown away by the Sommelier. His extensive knowledge really made our experience that extra bit special, as he expertly paired wine to each of our courses. We would highly recommend opting for a wine pairing option, as it takes the dining experience to the next level.
