    Lovely evening! I commend Manolo and the entire staff for a near perfect evening, which is not easy to pull off for a party of 9. The food was excellent, and all 9 of us commented on how much we loved it. Our guests mentioned San Pietro as a highlight of their 6 day visit, and we agree. The pasta is beautiful, the tastes are wonderful, and the service is impeccable! We will return, many times.

    We came for dinner with coiple of friends. They made an exceptional risotto which wasn’t on the menu, because we asked for it as our pre marathon dinner. Very nice and polite staff. Truly a treat to dine here. Food was unbelievable! Tuna carpaccio and vegetable risotto.

    The ambiance was lovely which is the reason my partner and I were there. The service was very nice, attentive, and friendly. However, the food was very heavy and left each of us feeling not so great later in the evening and the next day. Nice staff but the food and cocktails were not worth the atmosphere. Also, we felt a bit rushed into ordering before we were ready.

    The service was friendly, professional, and courteous. The ladies loved their pasta with clams, they split an order . Our little dinner salads were very nice. My spaghetti was on the bland side. Everything was OVERPRICED - but it's the east side mid-town so no surprise there.

    One of our favorite NYC restaurants. The food is excellent. Started with zucchini flowers which were delicious and plenty for two. Followed with a split of pasta and marinara sauce which was excellent and a very nice second course. Main courses of veal piccata and sea bass. Both done to perfection. The maitre'd Minolo makes the experience extra special with his warmth and attention.

    Returned to our long time favorite after a Covid break. Shocked and terribly disappointed with almost every aspect of the experience. Everyone was pleasant but there were extremely long waits between courses. The food was almost cold, bland, pasta overcooked, as if the garlic and herbs had been omitted. The dessert was the best course. Overall, a waste of time and a waste of a great deal of money.

    I have been to this restaurant several times before and the food and service were always outstanding. I do not know what has happened. The service was slow and not very friendly. The food was very disappointing. We shared a fig, prosciutto and burrata appetizer. There was one tiny mothball size fig. The burrata was hard and tasted very off. My friend’s pasta entree was flavorless and oily. I had the veal with sautéed spinach. The veal was good, but the spinach tasted frozen. I understand that Covid has hurt the restaurant industry, but it’s not right to charge high prices for mediocrity. I’m very sad that this place has changed so much.

    I had asked a colleague who had lived in nyc in a past life and who manages the VIP’s for our company to recommend a spot to take my mother for dinner that would have quality food and service and not be loud. This was the perfect place and my mother was beyond happy with everything we had. We used to travel to Italy every summer as a family so we are picky when it comes to proper Italian. This one was a gem! I also appreciated the attention from all the staff and especially Manolo! He charmed us and made the evening all that much more memorable.

    I have been a long-time patron of San Pietro. It never disappoints, and this time was no different. I could not be more favorable of the wait-staff quality and attentiveness; from the appetizer to the main course, my and my colleague's meals were fabulous. I wholly recommend San Pietro for the discerning palate.
