It has been an excellent experience each time we have encountered the Bruno Brothers and their divine creations. We love San Pietro. The Bruno Brothers are veterans of the food service industry, and, once again, we had a fantastic time dining at San Pietro! The courtesy of the waiting staff is always marvelous . Gerardo and Cosimo have never failed to impress me and my family and friends with their passion for good food. I would bend over backwards just to have their delicious eggplant parmigiana (their mother’s secret recipe) and the superb zabaione made in front of our eyes! There is no need to fly to Italy, when you have it all, in the gorgeous location of Midtown Manhattan. Thank you!

San Pietro was everything we hoped it would be from reading various reviews. Exquisite attention to details. The veal scaloppine with lemon juice, capers and spinach was certainly the highlight of my dining experience and sea bass baked in sea salt and fresh herb crust was packed full of flavor. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and will make it one of our regular places to dine. Gerardo and Cosimo provide excellent and personalized service! Thank you Bruno Brothers!

It is always a pleasure to go back to San Pietro. The rigatoni with sausage, lamb, veal, and tomatoes was fantastic. The pistachio crusted wild Alaskan salmon was similarly delicious. Great meals matched with delicious desserts, and wine. Presentation was lovely. Service is always friendly and attentive. Great atmosphere!

I hope that our experience was unusual given that we dined on Valentines Day and most restaurants are overwhelmed for dinner. My feeling is that service shouldn’t suffer on this evening because you’re busy....plan accordingly and schedule enough help to ensure a pleasant experience for your guests. Things started off poorly when we were seated for our 8pm reservation at 9:15pm. I’m patient to a point but this went way past what I believe is reasonable. Our arugula salad was tasty and the bread/olives for the table were enjoyable. My husband and I both had the risotto....he had mushroom and I had scallops and leek. There were two smallish scallops on my plate - yes, only TWO, and they clearly weren’t seasoned or seared properly . We finished with a key lime tarte, which tasted ok but definitely not like key lime. Throughout the meal we also noticed a few housekeeping issues that left us unsettled. One server dropped a knife on the floor and we watched it walked over to a table and placed for a diner to use. Yuck! We also saw the manager combining wine bottles behind the bar, which left us questioning whether we actually received the proper glasses of wine we ordered. Overall, a less than stellar experience given what we paid for our food and drinks.

A very good meal. Terrific salads, bread sticks and entrees (ravioli and chicken), but the dessert was bland. Service was great (a couple of the waiters were real characters) and setting is cozy. A very good experience.

A recent lunch at San Pietro was as excellent and enjoyable as I have come to expect. The combination of wonderfully prepared food with a relaxed but very elegant environment makes it one of the most enjoyable Italian spots in midtown. One should be prepared that it is expensive, but it is truly enjoyable.

The food and service were all superb. Manolo, the Maitre D, did an entertaining and thorough job explaining all of the specials and he made us feel very welcome in this lovely little Italian restaurant. It’s a bit pricey, but we knew that and decided it was worth the splurge for our anniversary.

Marvelous restaurant, superb food and wine, lovely ambience, fantastic service. Only issue is $$$--I ordered a small pasta side, thinking it would accompany my (delicious)chicken parmigiano, and was surprised to see an additional charge of $22 when the bill arrived!! Nonetheless, this is one of he best restaurants that we regularly patronize when visiting NYC, and I recommend it often.

I recently had lunch at San Pietro after not having been there for a while. It was truly superb. The food was uniformly outstanding, the service very attentive and gracious, the ambience very pleasant. It is expensive, so you need to be prepared for that. If you are, you will find this to be an excellent place in all respects.
