Excellent food (risotto !) and salmon and swordfish. Extensive wine selection from all over the world.
Quiet conversation is possible which is NOT true at many places.
I’m glad we found this establishment only 2 blocks from Hilton Avenue of the Americas

Beautiful day for outside dining.the meal was incredible. Starting with a bursts salad that was the best I’ve ever had. Then a spicy seafood pasta… remarkable.

This was our first time here and it was a pleasant surprise. The whole experience was enjoyable. We chose to sit inside where the spacing between tables was generous. The menu was interesting but the list of specials sounded even better. We chose a tomato salad and zucchini flowered for starters - both delicious. Fish cooked under salt was tender and sweet, just as hoped. And the creme brûlée ice cream was unique and worth every bite. Nice wine list. We will return.

Service was superb: our server had a memory for the day's special dishes that rivals the best! Service was attentive but never intrusive. The food was absolutely first-rank, with a wide variety of dishes available, superbly prepared. The ambience was very classy, with much brass and ceramic sculptures: quite beautiful. I would easily rate this a five-star restaurant to rival the very best. A true treasure of New York!

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!

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.
