Our dinner at San Pietro was lovely - the pasta with short ribs and the monk fish were fantastic specials. The staff is very attentive and polite, and the owner makes you feel so special!

San Pietro is a special occasion restaurant, but I love the decor, food and service. We don't live in NY but go there occasionally when visiting. We usually split the spaghetti pomodoro (which is very very good) and I have the salt-crust baked bronzino, light and delicious. The prices are very high but it is a mid-town Italian restaurant, so to be expected.

Food was pretty good, but the service was EXTREMELY slow.

The restaurant was out of like half the menu.

Server brought the wrong items 5 times.

They do all bills by hand, everything is basically made up by the server. No accountability on items.

We had fun. Not the best Italian food in nyc. Tables very cramped together. My husband repositioned his chair to accommodate for the adjacent table. For the price, I would have expected better.

Beautiful restaurant with amazing food. Sadly, the table service is poorly lacking. And the noise level is like sitting on an airport runway.

This is a very nice little restaurant and relatively quiet (so a great place for a business discussion). However, the value is a little "off". The prices here have gone crazy, even by midtown NY standards. $60 for veal scaloppini? $39 for Rigatoni with a little ricotta and ragu? Service was also a bit slow and they forgot to bring one item we ordered - a coffee.

Again, I think it's very nice, but I can't give it 5-stars. I also think they may start to lose on repeat customers if they don't readjust the pricing on the menu. There are many nicer restaurants in the neighborhood now with more reasonable prices.

Lousy service. 20 minutes no drink order or menus, they comped wine, poor wine selection from them. Salmon was raw in the middle, not cooked. They ended up taking that off bill. Server, elder gentleman, spoke such broken English we had no idea what he was saying most of his talking. Just a absolute disgrace

My wife and I visited San Pietro while on a vacation in NYC to see a couple of shows. We had a wonderful experience, from beginning to end. The staff was amazing - every single person on the staff helped us at some point during our dinner, and they worked tremendously hard the entire time we were there to ensure that every guest received excellent service. The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. We will definitely be back the next time we’re in town!

Loved Menola who greeted me when I arrived and served me. The inside of the restaurant was very attractive and looked very clean. The table settings and
fresh flowers also made the setting very attractive. The food was absolutely terrific and I would certainly go to this restaurant again. Thank you open table for making reservations. You always are very helpful when I need reservations.

The good was good. However, the pricing was ridiculous. I ordered a special that was described orally. I didn't think to ask the price. It was four times more expensive than the items on the menu ($125 for beef medallions). If our bill had come out at 50% of what was charged it still would have been relatively expensive.

I don’t write reviews, and if I do I’m very careful to write a bad review because I owned and ran a restaurant so I know how difficult it can be. First off, the food is good quality, the room is nice and the hostess pleasant. That’s the good news. The bad news is the service and attitude of the waiting staff. It was noticeable how attentive they were to the table of 6 business people spending lots of money on the table next to us. On the other hand our service was desperate, despite the hostess coming around a couple of times to see if we were ok. That didn’t make it ok. The waiting staff were dismissive and not interested. The bill for 2 glasses of house wine, 2 pastas and 2 desserts was the wrong side of $180. I made my displeasure clear but their was no apology and no contrition. In my view as a former restauranteur, that is unforgivable.
