Further Information

Feel like taking a time out from Fulham or London in general? Come spend a delightful evening at Al Santo a take a culinary trip to the Mediterranean. Set up like a rustic café or deli or specialty market, Al Santo radiates a very warm and welcoming vibe. Blending Italian and Greek culinary creations by using authentic fresh produce from the area, you can’t go wrong by choosing any of the wonderfully light and healthy dishes. Stop by at Vanston Place for lunch or come by later on a sunny day, sit outside on the Cath Kidson style terrace and take that all-important time out right in the middle of Fulham.

You are offered spoonfuls of laid-back charm and an easy, Mediterranean-themed menu. Start the day with a wonderful breakfast: eggs with prosciutto, three cheeses, mushrooms, butter beans and cherry tomatoes. The nice thing about all of Al Santo’s dishes (apart from the obviously great taste): none of them will set you back too much. Every single one of their dishes offer full value. And please do yourself a favour and go for some apple cake. After a lovely meal this dessert, excuse the pun, absolutely takes the cake.

The good: food was very tasty and nicely presented. The salmon salad was a highlight, as was the beef carpaccio. The bad: wine measures are off. We'd ordered a 375ml carafe of wine and i could see straight away it was not half a bottle. I mentioned this to the staff who suddenly seemed unable to understand English. I also didn't want to cause a scene. Later a different staff member produced the bottle we had been drinking from (unrelated to my comment about the quantity) and it was clear to see they'd only poured about 1/3 of the bottle's contents. We're not big drinkers so it's fine but this policy is clearly dishonest as you're not getting what you've paid for. As for atmosphere we were unlucky a big group of juvenile men who spent the evening shouting about "s....ing her" etc were also in the restaurant which somewhat spoilt the experience for the rest of the quiet couples who were there. Although this is not the fault of the restaurant perhaps it would be better to put large groups outside where the noise level is less apparent.

Once again Al Santo doesn't disappoint. Yes, it was busy due to the evening football match but there were appropriate numbers of staff & the service was attentive. Food was it's usual high standard & overall offers great value especially for this area of London. We will be back soon.

Al Santo is a perfect-size restaurant, very authentic and charming. The service is very good and the italian food is excellent. Price-wise is really good. I definitely recommend it for lunch or dinner.

The restaurant had a lovely ambiance and the staff were delightful. They were very busy so things did take a little time which wasn't too much of a problem except one dish had to be sent back (rare steak, when medium was requested), but overall very enjoyable, we would certainly go there again.

Food is always great. Service can be stretched when Chelsea are at home so just allow extra time. I have never been disappointed with Al Santo.

We had a great experience here. The food was gorgeous, the waiter was friendly and helpful, and the environment was relaxed but still had a buzz to it. I can't eat dairy and they were really helpful in advising what I could eat. Overall the meal was incredible.

The restaurant was busy and consequently noisy. No doubt busy as it was well liked - but it was too noisy for our taste. Our starter was good but the main course of pasta suffered from an excess of pasta and a shortage of sauce. We will not be returning. There are better Italian offerings nearby.

Great restaurant with lovely staff and fabulous food. Would definitely recommend. the crispy duck with beetroot and the calamari starters were both very very good and can also recommend the ravioli and the duck ragout with pappardelle.

I went to the restaurant with my family in June 2015. The food was really good and the dishes are pretty big. The wine was awesome. Unfortunately there were just two desserts and we had to leave with no dessert :(. The music was a bit loud too, we had to shout to communicate.

Good food, good atmosphere, friendly staff, good value. Excellent service given our visit was before a Chelsea match, with nearly all tables wanting to order at the same time and be served at the same time in order to leave before kick off.

Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. The pasta when was only luke warm when served however which effected the enjoyment and portion size could have been slightly more generous. Lovely location but still a little pricier than other very good Italians I have been to in London. Reasonably priced prosecco beverages.

Perfect location for football matches or in general as it is minutes from Fulham Broadway tube station. Starters were good but main course very good, home made pasta was delicious. Will definitely go back.

Food, service and ambience were excellant as before. We wish them well in the face of new stiff competition in the immediate area. They deserve to do well.

brilliant, friendly, delicious, local Italian/Greek with wonderful Mediterranean food and atmosphere. Specials bring a taste of the summer to a cold grey fulham in March!

Fantastic food and service. Would whole heartedly recommended this restaurant. You could pay two/three times as much locally and not get half the value. Great

We enjoyed the food. The Calamari was the best I've eaten in a while. Service is good though not exceptional. The decor is eclectic and fun however the overall package doesn't quite match the price level.

Quirky place, comes across as authentic whilst in the heart of fulham. They should however match the quality of service to the prices they ask for which are not quirky but regular London level prices.
