Absolutely excellent all around - between the quality of food, wine and the waiter service, this place should have a Michelin star.

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.

The brazino baked in sea salt is excellent. So are the Octopus and baby calamari.
Wine is reasonable in price.

Absolutely delicious food. The appetizers, main courses & deserts were wonderful except the pasta was overcooked, not Al Dente. An excellent wine list also.

The place is empty and while they are trying to survive it seems that the formula is to increase prices to a level that makes it ridiculous.

We got three small appetizers sparkling water and coffee -- Paid $200!

Stay away from them
