Love this restaurant!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMChef to Chef, culinary delightI am a professional Chef trained in Switzerland and a CIA graduate. I travel the country working with international restaurant chains, following trends and developing menus.
The food was incredible! By that I mean it was prepared using fine ingredients in the style and fashion of San Pietro Italy. The soup was prepared from stock, not a soup base, as many soups are made today. They tomatoes used in the Ragu were fine quality, resembling San Marzano. Desserts were wonderful, several are made in house.
If you are looking for an incredible Italian restaurant this is it! If you are looking for a chain experience keep driving; this isn't it! Great food requires fine ingredients and a talented staff. This is the real deal!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of three enjoyedOur party of three enjoyed a wonderful meal and shared a dessert at this neighborhood gem. The restaurant is a small and intimate place great for couples, and/or small groups wanting to carry on conversations without a lot of background noise.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a greatMy husband and I had a great time. The truffle and sweet pea soup was fantastic as was the boston lettuce salad with strawberries and gorgonzola! amazing presentation! I am often disappointed to find very few vegetarian options, and so was not surprised to find only a few interesting options. However, the cinnamon ravioli was very tasty. and Oh my- the chocolate and hazelnut cake was delicious! the staff were all friendly, helpful and service was timely. The manager did not seem able to crack a smile, but her staff made up for it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was superb, service wasFood was superb, service was top-notch. We have enjoyed Trattoria San Pietro for many years.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistently goodThis is one of my go to restaurants.
Over the years I have tried every menu item at least once and I have never been disappointed.
As long as Vinny is running the operation I will continue to go.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI would have liked to tr theI would have liked to tr the lobster, which came highly recommended, but I wasn't dressed for it. I'll have to go back to the restaurant and order it then.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AM6 adults celebrating a birthday.6 adults celebrating a birthday. We all really liked it. Will go again.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBuona Sana Cucina!In a word "delicioso!" I rarely go out for Italian food. The reason? I make everything from Veal Saltimbocca to Zuppa Di Pesce at home. I'm fussy about what I eat....the ingredients...the preparation etc. Trattoria San Pietro is the one place, when I do dine out with friends or business associates, that I can count on, to serve authentic delicious food every time I have the pleasure of dining there.
I have a few favorites....The calamari which is done in a light red sauce and kicked up with capers and gaetta olives (I've tried this recipe at home). I prefer this style to breaded and fried calamari. The sauce is delicate, yet bold enough to complement the calamari. Try the guazetto and veal involtini, you won't be disappointed.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMwe go to its sister restaurantwe go to its sister restaurant all the time and have been going there for well over ten
years. However, we just found this alternative and were quite satisfied. The food
is delicious and the service is great. The only wrinkle we could find is the owner, arrogant, and not friendly, even when we were telling him how great his food was. He was uninterested and seemed bored.
We will continue to go to their sister restaurant Cafe Strega because the food is wonderful and the staff is friendly and warm, making us feel extremely comfortable.
And we will visit San Pietro again, because of the food and the staff, certainly not because of the owner.

The special salad was excellent to share, all the pasta dishes are made fresh, the bread was also great. The place was busy but service was excellent throughout the night. The all Italian menu did not disappoint, but the server put this place over the top.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
