San Pietro is a classic old school NYC Italian restaurant complete with an owner and staff that take you back in time with both their service and the authentic quality of the food - especially the home made pasta dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bucatini Amatriciana - just like my grandmother from Calabria used to make :)

Classic northern Italian cooking in a nice setting. Perfect for a business meal or for a special occasion. Service is very good with about a dozen off the menu items. A special was the St. Joseph pastry in honor of the holiday. Been here several times before and would certainly return.

Their special is as long as their standing menu! We got zucchini flower stuffed with crab meat, prosciutto with fig and buffata as starters. Spaghetti with clams and the famous Sunday dinner. I was soooo full that I can't squeeze the dessert down! Delicious is not enough to describe the meal. Special remark to the zucchini flower. We travel a lot and quite a few times to Italy. I have to say this meal really brings us back. I haven't even had a zucchini flower done that well. Perfectly stuffed so they still look like flower and sauteed just perfect so that they keep the bright yellow color. Wow. That dish is the theme of the day. If this dish is still available when you go, definitely order it!

Best Italian in New York. Listen carefully to the specials as that's what 90% of the regular patrons order.

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.
