We all enjoyed our evening here. This is a serious restaurant, with fine food and reasonable prices. I would recommend, and will return myself. I am sure they are successful.

Just average. We had the octopus with potatoes as a starter and it was pretty bland (plus it literally had 4 tiny pieces of octopus). The mains were better.
Service needs improving. Not sure if it is a language barrier, but the waitress came across as disinterested/borderline rude. The worst thing in my view was the fact that we ordered two glasses of a specific wine on the list, they took the empty glasses away from the table to the kitchen and filled them in. I personally prefer when they do so at the table, showing the bottle and allowing to try. It’s just a bit touch that makes a difference in my view.
Prices are ok. I would not return

Food was perfect. Especially the Catch of the day. Fish was fresh and nice display. Atmosphere is good, fit out cost. Will be the place I will come again. Tiramisu taste nice. Order too much food for more dessert. Try best time!

Made the booking haven’t eaten many times before. The food is very good & normally service/staff are friendly. However this time we were told at 9:30pm that they needed our table back at 10pm. We were not told that when we booked. We were then told the same thing another two times before 10pm. They wanted us to love to the bar to finish our pudding - instead we left our pudding unfinished and left.
So annoying. Ruined a good dinner. Doubt I go back.

San Pietro remains one of the best Italian restaurants in London ..... fish is exceptional (the Crudo selections are top notch), pasta perfectly cooked (though slightly low on salt) and very friendly staff and owners ..... major kudos to the management for doing something that is not so much common practice here in London .... one of our dishes was misplaced and had to be reordered with a long delay and it was offered to us at no cost ...... small things that make a difference

1. I booked two weeks in advance. Was informed upon arrival that we had to vacate the table within two hours. This is unacceptable.
2. Our guests and ourselves were harassed towards the end of the meal to vacate our table within ten minutes.
3. In addition, despite booking early we were seated right next to serving area with one underssized bunk to seat two people.
4. Three of us had fish as a main course. All servings were overcooked - mortal sin for fish.
5. The manager on duty had a breath from hell - reeking of stale tobacco.
6. We have dined here frequently and only ever had excellent food and service. This occasion was a disgrace. New manager?

Very welcoming Italian eatery that offers good value for money. But it is not for non seafood diners as most of the recommended dishes are fish related. Excellent vegetable dishes include cauliflower and white asparagus, peas and other greens. Dessert selection looked tempting although we ddin’t try all.

Service and food was excellent, as always! We have a preference to a certain table and they were very accommodating. It was a busy evening and there was a small mistake on the order but were immediately tended to. The pasta with Cornish crab was amazing. We return regularly, because it’s always great.

Really nice food and great service. Most dining is upstairs in a cosy atmosphere without the noise and smell from the kitchen. Food it's nicely cooked with great flavor. Servers very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend it.

Good food, friendly service, great ambience. Prices a little on the high side but if you can accept this then it is a great little eatery for the area.

We discovered San Pietro by accident. We were hungry , it was just around the corner from our AirBnB. We received a warm and friendly reception (always a good start). The premises is nice and we were expecting a "nice but unremarkable " meal.
What we got was so much better.
We each (Three of us) had different starters , we all disagreed as to which was better , but all thought that the quality of ingredients and cooking was excellent.

Then came the Main Courses. Even now I am salivating thinking of them. We enjoyed them so much.


The next time that I am in London I will stay near San Pietro , just so that I can eat there.

BTW

We ate there Friday 06/09/2019 and again Sunday 08/09/2019

I have no hesitation in recommending San Pietro to you

Excellent local Italian restaurant that provides simply good cooking in a lovely atmosphere. We found this via the Good Food Guide and it definitely deserves it's entry! The food was delicious with a wide range of choices, the wine list reasonably priced and the service attentive but not intrusive. The ambience and decor was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We will certainly be back when we are next in South Kensington.

One of my favourite restaurants. The menu has changed a bit which was exciting and the food was amazing- really impressed. The raw fish starter was delicious and the grilled tuna had a lovely Smokey flavour. Everyone at my table thoroughly enjoyed their food too. Definitely recommend. Thanks so much!

We have dined at San Pietro previously and loved it, so booked again online. When we arrived at 7pm we were disappointed with our table - in a corner, right by the door and beneath very cold air conditioning, and very close to another occupied table. There were plenty of unoccupied tables. When we asked to be moved we were told all tables were booked. Most tables remained empty all evening right up to us leaving at 9.30pm!!

Food was excellent and authentic, though fish for a couple of us was a little overdone. Great wine list, with some top notch (and inexpensive) options, patience with our brood of children.

First time but won't be my last...... Fabulous restaurant and in my hood so even better! Only complaint was the couple across from me should have got a room! PDA is not appealing any where but while you are eating, even less so! They were both actually groping each other and at one point, I thought he was going to start removing clothes.........

The best, most welcoming, high standard, Italian family restaurant for a superb selection of fresh fish, yet to try other dishes, they looked amazing too!
