9:30pm reservations. We arrived on time and had to wait 25mins to be seated. 20mi s to get water. 220mins for menus, which we finally had to ask for. The waitstaff was nice but there seemed to be no method to the slowness! It went all night. We got there at 9:30pm. Didn’t leave til 1:00am. It was laughable

Lovely place. Service was a little off as they had only just opened after a long lay off but they pulled out all the stops to make it a very nice meal. We would go back.

Great world class Italian cuisine.
This is not your weekly pasta restaurant.
Delicious taste from anything on the menu. The service and covid protocols were very good.
Bring your best credit card and don't look at the prices.

Could do better at half the price at virtually any other Italian restaurant in NYC.
Wait staff was exceptional.

Because of some construction a little hard to find but excellent dinner. Fish was perfect and service terrific. A little on pricey side but worth it.

Food and service was outstanding as usual.
Outdoor setting doesn’t have as much protection from the elements as some other restaurants, but they had some portable space heaters and the weather wasn’t too cold that evening.

Service was a bit slow and we were the first people there. I understand issues with covid but they were out of the appetizers they mentioned were their specials. Pasta was hard and calamari extremely salty. They did make a good espresso martini but that was about it. Hopefully covid was just affecting the food but there was no reason for the slow service.

It was great as usual. It has a very nice outdoor space as the sidewalk on 54th St is very wide.

Due to Covid, we sat outdoors in the area they set up on the street. Totally not the restaurants fault that they couldn’t have guests indoors. So that’s the only reason why I gave it four stars for ambiance. The owner and staff were amazing, As well as the food! Second enough

San Pietro has done outdoor dining to a perfection!
The tables were nicely spaced with tablecloths and flowers. The sidewalk space was beautiful with yellow and coral begonias topping all the space dividers. The staff was very friendly while keeping us safe. The food ,including the white truffles , was delicious!

This was the worst restaurant I have ever been to. I went here on a date and there were bugs going in and outside my food and around me. The food was overpriced and sub par at best. I wouldn’t recommend at all.

Had an amazing date night here last night. Everything was delicious. My favorite, the vegetable soup was perfect, as was the truffle pasta which was served in a half portion and that was the right size for me. Our server was truly amazing!
