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.

this is a great restaurant. Food and service are excellent. It is, however, very expensive. Despite, I never feel taken advantage of, because the quality of everything is so high.
