The restaurant was surprisingly quite empty for a Saturday night—I truly believe this place deserves more. Great chef, staff, food and decor. We arrived with two small children and they accommodated by separating us into a private dining room upon our request. The chef and staff were very attentive and accommodating. We have had octopus many times before and they served us the best we’ve ever had, the risotto with truffle was amazing and I was very impressed by the extensive wine list. We will definitely be returning.

A fabulous restaurant in the heart of midtown Manhattan, I have come here for years and never a disappointment. I highly recommend the restaurant. It is expensive, but very much worth every penny.

On a hot New York evening to be served a perfectly prepared cold tomatoes soup was a special and much needed treat!

Impeccable service from a staff that makes all their clients feel like family!

Our server ruined the time with my family. He was loud, curt, irritating and domineering. The food was underwhelming and the prices overwhelming. I remember his name but choose to keep it confidential.

With so many Italian restaurants in NYC, it’s so hard to choose just one, especially when you’re from out of state like myself. San Pietro sold me with their family story on their website. The meal and experience exceeded well beyond my expectations!! The bread and petite breadsticks were delicious and the service was excellent. I ordered the branzino, the signature dish. I’m a seafood fanatic, and this was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. Everything tasted so fresh and the olive oil was phenomenal. I’ve decided that whenever I return to NYC, I’m dining here once every trip. I will also recommend it to anyone looking for a place to eat in NYC. It was THAT good. It is a bit on the pricey side, (not bad for a high-and restaurant, though) but it was worth every penny.

My husband and I visited for dinner on Saturday Evening. The experience would have been great, had there not been either the manager or owner listening to Cable News on his iPad full volume at the bar, audible to the entire dining room. This went on through the duration of our entire meal, on and off. There were only two other people at tables near us and we all exchanged glances on how extremely rude and distracting this was.

This behavior, disrespectful to anyone near you, is rude on the subway. Why should it be acceptable for the manager/owner of a restaurant that charged us $350 for a dinner for two. We were really shocked.
